I have some time off work this week so have had time to do lovely things like marmalade making. These ingredients became 4 1/2 jars of gorgeous mellow orange-whisky marmalade.


This should keep our toast covered for the rest of the year!

Monster Coookies

The trickiest part of this recipe was keeping people’s paws off of the M & Ms and salted peanuts whilst waiting for the peanut butter supplies to be replenished.Not for the faint-hearted, these beasties are fattening and sweet but pretty nice. The recipe came from the following website: having been recommended to me as a way of using up an overabundance of oat bran. It actually uses very little of the dratted stuff so any ideas would be appreciated. They are nicer than they look but all the nuts, choc and sweets seem to be hiding inside.

Bet you can't eat two!



…. and I think Spring is nearly here 🙂



About plymouthmaid

Oooh how to decide what are the most important things to say about me? That is hard. Is it what I do for a living? (Teacher of Maths, English and ICT). Is is my age? (nearly 50 boo hoo). Is it my family? (2 grown up lovely girls, an other half, Marley the daft spaniel and the rest of the family to numerous to mention). Is it my many hobbies? (patchwork and quilting, crochet, beading, gardening, cooking, poker, walking, digital scrapbooking, computer forums). You can be the judge as I don't know where this blog will lead as I am totally new to the blogging world but wanted somewhere to post some recipes I am developing..
