Did I mention that I got some new cookbooks for my birthday?
I did? Several times?
Well, ok, yes I did. These are the books....
I do love a good cookbook, reading through it and taking notes about what I want to make next.
The bottom left book is where I got the inspiration for last week's Recipe of the Week (see here if you missed it)
With the top book in the photo, I think I might just start at the beginning and try out every single recipe. They all look so good! It's all about breads, which is something I'm not so used to making. My homemade bread comes courtesy of the bread maker - sacrilege to Mr Hollywood, I fear! Using his fine book though, I feel sure to conquer the challenge. It's full of step by step guides, plenty of photos and loads of advice.
I've not been the only one enjoying the books. The birthday boy, a huge British Bakeoff fan, loves looking through them.
This is how I found him the other day.....
Unfortunately, I don't think there is any way I can adapt those two breads he is looking at to make them gluten and dairy free so that he can try them!
