Chunky apple and marmalade cake from River Cottage Fruit Every Day!

I loved this cake; I did make a lot of changes, however. I made this cake to use up some leftover mincemeat and substituted that for the marmalade and the sultanas by weight. I also made a half recipe.... read more >

Jamie at Home: Cook Your Way to the Good Life

By Jamie Oliver
Hyperion - 2008

This was fantastic! I did make some changes, using peas from my garden and no broad beans. I also subbed the pecorino with a strong cheddar and used lime juice because that's what I had. The acid at the end really did bring it all together as Jamie says. The paste tasted amazing and would be good on practically anything; fish would be wonderful I think. I made it by hand, but I would try in the food processor if I did a larger amount. Can't wait to make this again and I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could!

Whole roasted cricket ball squash : page 356

I made this with my last 2 honey nut squashes (mini butternut) from the garden. It was straightforward to make and took about an hour from start to finish. The only other changes I made were to use my own roasted tomatoes for the sundried tomatoes, and to sprinkle the goat cheese on top. This is a very nice and tasty dish, it is quite filling, and would be a good choice for a vegetarian supper.
