Aubergine parmigiana crumble

It’s only been a couple of days since I last boke, but I have just 20 recipes left so I feel like I can see the finish line and it’s given me hope. I may continue to blog about different recipes I try here and there, but there won’t be the same pressure (that I’ve…

Feta and spinach filo triangles

I think I got my baking groove back. Is that a thing? Maybe it’s the sunny weather flooding me with endorphins. Maybe it’s the cherry blossoms that make my heart happy every time I go for a walk. Whatever the reason, I’m glad I’m baking more. Because I need to finish this book. It’s taking…

Pigs in a blanket

I don’t know what it is about this phase of the pandemic, or maybe this part of 2021, but I feel like I’m baking a lot. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I’ve been wanting to make these for a while, but as usual in these pandemic days, I haven’t wanted to make a…

Paul’s mini sausage plaits

Hello, my name is Amy and it has been 64 days since I’ve last baked-and-blogged, or as my friend would say, “boke” (his suggestion for the past tense of “bake”). In case you didn’t know, the pandemic is still going strong, and actually stronger now that we’re all navigating the second wave. Obviously that means…

Lamb, apricot, coriander and green chilli pie

Minus the green chilli. But I’m getting ahead of myself. I’m in the savoury section again and, to be perfectly honest, I’m dreading most of these recipes. Why do Brits love pastry and meat so much? They’re obsessed and, as nice and comforting as it may be on the occasional cold winter evening, for the…

Giant sausage roll

As you may remember, I recently did a puff pastry bake and was left with a sheet of unused store-bought puff pastry. Obviously I needed to use it up so I flipped to the next section of the bakebook to find a savoury bake that required puff pastry. For British people, there was (unsurprisingly) no…

Little crab soufflés

After the sweet pastry and patisserie section of my bakebook comes the savoury section. And if I’m being completely honest: the weird section. British people make great sweet bakes. Scones and biscuits and cakes—yes, please! But their cooking leaves something to be desired. Or perhaps it’s more of an acquired taste. Baked beans running into…

Roast vegetable and goat’s cheese torte

What am I making? I mean the photo looks delicious, but I’m so confused about most of the savoury recipes. Tortes are usually sweet and yet, there’s this oddity. I mean don’t get me wrong, it looks tasty. Roasted veggies are wonderful and goat’s cheese is my jam, so combining that with crepes seems like…

Boeuf bourguignon pie

I’m on a savoury baking roll! With no rolls in sight. More like I’ve got half a recipe of puff pastry from the tapenade twists and this recipe calls for the other half. A recipe I’ve been slightly scared of. I’ve wanted to make boeuf bourguignon ever since I watched Julie & Julia. And, as…

Tapenade twists

It’s time, guys. It’s time for the savoury bake. It’s been 8 months and 23 bakes and no savouries have been attempted. Until now. This particular recipe has been on my radar for a while. I was going to make it a month or so ago, but I could not for the life of me…
