A longer sabbatical than I’d originally planned…

Hi everyone Is anyone still out there??? It has been such a LONG time since my last post, and I’m really sorry about that. I did kind of drop off the planet and the longer I stayed away, the harder it was to get back to thebigfatnoodle. There were a myriad of reasons that I … Continue reading

Friday is for fish: Steamed fish (hake) Chinese-style

A fish dish fit for a king I haven’t done a Friday Is For Fish recipe in a really long time, so it’s really disappointing for me when the photos I take don’t come out as nice as I’d like them to. This week, I made some steamed fish, Chinese-style, which I was really looking … Continue reading

It’s curry time! Curry puff puffs, curry filo puffs and curry cups

Curry in a hurry If there’s one type of food that the Brits have truly taken to their hearts and made their own, it is the curry.

Red spaghetti… and a grumpy old woman’s take on the rest of my Chelsea Flower Show 2012 piccies

Part food post, part flower show As I’d already posted some of the food-oriented images from our trip to the Chelsea Flower Show, I originally set out to focus this post on a staple recipe that has sustained both my husband and I during these last few turbulent weeks. The idea was that I would … Continue reading

Queen’s Jubilee celebrations start early :)

I’m interrupting my usual blogging schedule with this spur-of-the-moment post. My colleague Jess arrived at work today with special (and early) Queen’s Jubilee cupcakes for us all – YUM-O! And it tasted good…! 🙂

If you haven’t had enough chocolate yet… hazelnut and walnut chocolate brownies

Crispy squidgy chocolate goodness As some of you may know, I’m married to a chocolate fiend. My husband has to eat chocolate every day and I’ve never known him not to. So imagine my surprise when this Easter, he told me he didn’t want me to buy him an Easter egg. I thought this was … Continue reading

A hint of chocolate in prep for Easter: Mary Berry’s Chocolate Loaf Cake

The legend that is Mary Berry I only have one recipe to post this week as I spent last weekend with friends and so I only made it into the kitchen late on Sunday night after everyone had left. I was however determined to herald my husband’s return from his ski trip by making him … Continue reading
