Salted Peanut Caramel Shortbread

So I love baking, but sometimes you can eat too many baked goods.  I know, it’s shocking but true! So sometimes the only way to justify baking is to palm it off onto other people.  Luckily my husband enjoys meeting up with other blokes and bringing them baked goods.  This week I made him some salted peanut caramel shortbread.  Which as the name would suggest is composed of shortbread, caramel, salted peanuts and chocolate.  You can see the difficulty I had in naming this recipe.

Mussels in White Wine

I like to visit our local market to check out the sights the smells and all of the lovely produce. I’m a massive fan of seafood and despite the protests of the husband drag him down by the fish mongers, I’ll even drag him over to the fish quay if I’m feeling brave.

Pesto and Green Bean Pastry Less Quiche

This week I have been very organised. Please note these two words: very… organised. You should be impressed by this. Normally I’m very bad at planning my lunches at work, so I just end up buying something boring and brown for lunch, rather than something exciting and tasty.  It’s also an expensive habit to be in.

I have decided to change this and so I would like to share this momentous occasion with you by sharing one of my favourite lunch time goodies with you – Pastry Less Quiche (or as the husband likes to call it – a cold omelette – he’s so eloquent).

I think the nicest part about Quiche be it with pastry or without, is the variety of flavours you can have.  They’re very versatile, and you can use up leftovers – not that we have many in this apartment.
