I don't want to continue pushing walnuts when they are obviously not your flavor of choice... but Black Walnuts have a v similar flavor to pine nuts. Are they available there?... :::running and ducking in case CW sees fit to lob a few Black walnuts IN the shell in my direction:::

I like walnuts - no-one else in the family does so if I make a date and walnut cake I have to eat the whole thing myself Embarassed Laughing

I've just watched the Hairy Bikers for the first time and fancy a few of the recipes they had - cornbread and key lime pie added to my must make list. I wonder what cornmeal and buttermilk are in French?

Buttermilk is babeurre. Cornmeal I think is just farine de maïs - or just polenta, depending which part of France you are in.

Last night was baked spuds, sausages and green beans. Very prosaic and also very quick. Spuds oiled and salted before going in aga, though...so came out with crispy skins and fluffy inside...delish with a knob of butter and a small sprinkle of salt..mmmm

But probably doesn't count as a "new" recipe....

Sort-of -new recipe: had fish and chips for supper.
The twist being the fish was rainbow trout which I have never tried battering before - it was quite super as in turned out - the earthier taste of the trout made it a bit more flavourful than cod or haddock, and the beer batter was just right - light and crisp.
Oven-cooked t he chip but soaked them half a day first and blanched them before putting them in.
Not a scrap was left on anyone's plates.

Chocolate cupcakes from the Hummingbird baker cookbook was my fourth of the year.



Hope the picture turns out OK - very very yummy, but probably bad for me as well!

#6 - don't have a name for this exactly - roast sausage stew?

gently roasted 8 fat home-made sausages on a bed of cherry tomatoes with sprigs of rosemary thyme and bay and sloshed with ollve oil and white balsamic vinegar, oh and plenty of garlic. Turned and basted sausages halfway through.
Meanwhile in a pan did chopped red, green and yellow peppers, red onions and very finely chopped bulb and fronds of fennel.
Then tool the sausages out and put aside, added the tomatoes to the other veg, deglazed the roasting tin with a large glass of red wine and into the pan on a high heat until the liquid was reduced by half, then tossed the sausages back in.
Served with pecorino all over the top and buttered new potatoes on the side.

Actually I have thought of a name for it: ratatouille, because that's what it was, effectively. It was a nice ratatouille but I had envisaged something where the individual flavours of the vegetables stood out rather than becoming all one.
Ah well. Ya lives and learns.

7, 8 and 9 ....... OH has made a ginger beer plant and just bottled the lot but we need to wait a week before drinking it. I made Turkey au Vin and nearly set the kitchen on fire when I lit the Cointreau I'd added (I didn't have an brandy). Plus I remembered that earlier in January we had eaten our first home-made cheese fondue.

Revisited the balsamic glazed chicken of #3 today, but made a buttery parmesan polenta with it this time - the hard way.
It was quite a different taste experience to the normal quick-cook polenta we usually have - absolutely delicious (although the children scarcely touched it, having decided it was mashed potato and for some reason being anti-mashed potato today) and creamy smooth rather than gluey.
It however require three hours of constant stirring. I am all in favour of the slow cooking movement and Slow in general but on the other hand finding three hours just to stir cornmeal of an afternoon is not immensely convenient. As it was I perched atop a stool with my laptop balanced on the adjacent burner and actually got a surprising amount of work done one-handed - I suppose because I was not able to move away from the cooker or computer.
Hmmm.
