Round up of January 2014


I started this new Food blog ‘Chow At Home’. There has been so much too blog about that I’ve been finding it hard to keep up!

I introduced myself and hope you’ve gotten to know me a bit better. See Intro: part 1 and part 2 posts.

I then kicked off with a round up of my all time favourite things to bake and cook.

Recipes (some long-awaited and some new) have been posted. Mainly scrummy sweet things (Granola bar tray bake, Peanut butter & chocolate chip cookies, Banoffee cupcakes and Coconut & lime tea loaf) and a savoury delight (Carrot & coriander soup).

My Reviews have included tea places and restaurants (Afternoon tea @ The Morritt, Tea Sutra and Chinese New Year meal at Fat Buddha) and a foodie experience (Chocolate making with Kenspeckle).

I am hoping to catch up and get into the swing of blogging by the end of February. I am getting there!

Anyways, here’s a peek of what’s coming up this month…

More Recipes, as I’ll be cooking and baking on several occasions (a Chinese meal for Leigh’s work colleagues; a Valentine’s double date meal with our friends Tor & Chris; and visiting my brother and cousins in Manchester for Wesley’s housewarming). 

More Reviews, where I will continue to take advantage of Newcastle Restaurant week. This includes a date night at Las Iguanas and a meal with Leigh’s parents at Junipers Pantry in Nectar bar.

…Here’s to another month of making food and eating it!!

Thanks for reading and hope you continue to share my food adventures with me :-)
