    Yey I like making pastry too! My friends don’t understand and buy shop one but don’t think you can beat home made! I made cheese pastry for the first time this week was lovely and so rich!

  2. Nicisme Says:

    Ooooh, nice! What are you going to do with your pastry?

    I have been waiting for your recipes. Could you please let me know what’s your recipe with pastry.

    Hello! I’m not a regular reader, but I did remember coming across an awesome Shepherd’s Pie recipe here. I went looking for it today (I’m invited to a casserole pot luck party this evening) and behold! There you were, wearing exactly the same apron I have (my mother who lived in the UK got it for me at the market in Devizes along with a red one) and brought it to me on one of her trips to the US. I’m seeing some other recipes there in the sidebar that I need to try, too…thanks for a great site!

    Pastry is great for food fights but what dish in particular are you trying make?

    just found your blog and love it!
    i don’t do pastry but my husband does . . . I did ham stock for the first time this weekend and was not pleased with the outcome – next time I will try your method. But I’d love to see more recipes using the stock!

    Wow Fran, you look exactly like I imagined!

    Great picture and would like to taste the result. Have been looking at how many of the frozen food dishes came into existence with James Harrison’s ideas at http://myamazingpeople.com/2009/12/21/harrisons-great-food-idea/
