Dinner for friends
This post is all about simple good food, it’s not that difficult to make I’ve included instructions and pictures.
There’s a Leek and Carrot Flan, Popcorn, Banana & Chocolate Cake and a Lemon Cheesecake
I love making flans… I’d bake them all the time if I could :)here’s a Leek and Carrot Flan I have also made a Carrot and Tofu Flan see this recipe
I followed a recipe from The Vegan Cookbook (and here is the updated version of the book), but as usual I’ve messed with the recipe again as that’s only for the Carrot Flan and I LOVE leeks with a passion!
I love to cook though I have been busy with other things. I have felt inspired of late and have a little more time to cook so here are my efforts. Any decent cook will tell you that having good equipment does help a lot, I don’t need that much, but decent flan dishes, bowls to mix ingredients some good scales, a liquidiser and a blender all help make cooking a meal a lot easier.
