When winter hits and it is cold outside it is a great time to cook up some warming stews, casseroles and roasts.
This is a hearty pea soup in which dried split peas and a ham bone are cooked with carrots, potatoes, onions and a pinch of marjoram. You can choose to soak the peas overnight or use the faster method explained in the recipe.
A lovely winter soup packed full of leeks, potatoes, cauliflower and carrot, flavoured with white wine and thyme.
I love apple crumble. Even more than apple pie. After many years of trial and error and amalgamating other recipes I think I've finally perfected it! Or to the delight of my taste buds anyway.
This is a warm, rich, silky, but very traditional pudding, perfect with vanilla ice cream on a cold winter night. Its almost guaranteed not to fail, and if you have kids they will enjoy the way the sauce slowly creeps to the bottom during cooking.
This pie is ABSOLUTELY the best meat pie I have ever had in my life! This recipe was found whilst I was on the train and found that somebody left it on the seat. So I took it. Then I made it. Thank you to who ever left it on the train! Sometimes, I just make the meat filling and serve with mashed potatoes.
