Ok so yesterday I had a wee celebration to mark the Queens Diamond Jubilee.  Any excuse for some lovely food and fine alcohol!  My only wish was to have the sun shining so we could all sit in the garden – but no – not in Scotland!

I apologise for the bad photography and poor presentation – I was running late – as usual – and I just threw the food on the table! 😦

First up – some sarnies!

Next up mini toad in the holes with onion gravy and buttered potatoes.  Chicken was on the menu too – plain drumsticks and also some spicy drumsticks

 

Frittata!

I set my niece a challenge – asked her to make a traditional Victoria sponge – the recipe she followed was not so traditional and for some apparent reason when she added pink colouring to the icing- it turned orange…go figure! lol.  It tasted great though – so a big well done to her!

 

I will soon post details of recipes/techniques used – but for now I am going to enjoy some sausage sarnies and watch the 1st of 3 days of Jubilee celebrations on TV whilst I ‘recover’ from my indoor street party!

Hellooooo!  Well its been a while!  I keep taking photos of my food in preparation and then forget to take a photo once its cooked!  So not too many blogs from me. 

Anyways I have been busy all morning – I have made K’s Carrot and Onion Soup – https://kscookinginthekitchen.wordpress.com/2012/04/08/ks-carrot-onion-soup/  and prepared my dinner for tonight Pancetta and Spinach Chicken Roulade – which I will post later, and I made these superb cupcakes with my leftover ingredients.  (I also had spinach frittata on Friday and STILL have spinach leftover!).

I see these savoury cupcakes all the time but I visited Memoirs Of An Amateur Cook’s blog – and found this beautiful recipe – http://sarahsfoodieblog.wordpress.com/2012/04/20/chorizo-asparagus-and-cheddar-cupcakes/

These grabbed my attention because most savoury cupcakes have flour added but not these.  The recipe is on Sarahs blog – so go visit – the only difference was that I added leftover pancetta x 6 strips and leftover spinach 3 big handfuls and a third of a large onion instead of chorizo and asparagus.  I also omitted one egg so only added 5 – I dropped  my last egg! lol  Heres a photo once prepped!

And heres a close up so you can see the ingredients better

And here they are straight out the oven

And heres another close up – I now realise that I should have used large eggs and 6 of them!  Sarahs recipe did say fill to almost the top – but I didnt do that – When I took them out the oven I could see them deflating before my eyes! lol

These were the most tastiest savoury cupcakes ever and a pleasant change in texture.  I will defo make again and this was just using leftovers!  The minute they came out the oven myself and my family devoured them!  I would make them again and use in a summer picnic or banquet when having friends and family over. 

Thank you Sarah! x
