Any recipes that I use I will try and include on this page.

My Scone Recipe

8oz Flour
2oz butter or spread
1oz Sugar
and a pinch of salt

Rub the butter into the flour, add the pinch of salt ... and if you want to you can add a few sultanas now.

Add just enough milk to bring the dry mixture together and lightly make it into a ball.  I just flattened this out with my hands and divided it into four quarters.  But you can cut out with a cutter if you are so inclined.  My way means less washing up and no re-rolling of bits 😁

Brush with milk and bake in a hot oven (220c/200fan, 425f and Gas 7) for around 20-25 minutes.

Leave to cool slightly, or as long as you can wait and then enjoy.

Irish Potato Cakes and Fadge

This is very tasty but does need to be seasoned really well.

The missing words over the page are ...   'moderate oven for about 20 minutes to crisp the top and blend the flavours well.'

I think the secret of a good Lord Woolton Pie is to use the vegetables that you like, leftovers are especially good, a little bit of gravy or sauce and then a nice short pastry. Just use the quantities needed to fill your pie dish and make it your own.

 Personally, I find the mashed potato topped version is not quite as good as the texture of the pastry really compliments the vegetables well.  The potato pastry topped version is a happy compromise though.

More of a sandwich suggestion than a recipe, I made mine with lots of other salad ingredients from the garden.

Take care to use the minimum amount of flour you can get away with as too much can make them stodgy.

The amounts on the Post-It are the measurements needed for one portion.

I quite fancy making 'Onions with Cheese', although it does sound a little like a Cheese and Onion Toastie ... but without the bread!
