Cooking Up a Storm!

Zak’s been complaining that we don’t have any photos of food or cooking on the website – one of the main benefits of owning a Homewood. So yesterday, on a fairly bleak and wintery Friday afternoon, Penny and I set about remedying that!

We had a great time: baked up a whole bunch of bread (seven loaves in total!), used up some of the excess citrus from the farm’s orchard to make marmalade and lemon honey – all while cooking a roast dinner for Friday night dinner with the whole family.

I made an apricot and coconut loaf and Penny’s ‘No Knead’ bread (a great and simple recipe for a large family), and Penny made a cranberry and currant sweet loaf and our traditional Friday night Challah bread.

It was a good day to be indoors and we had heaps of fun, so Penny and I have decided to make a regular thing of it, so make sure you check back in future weeks for some more Friday afternoon baking sessions with new photos and recipes of more delicious food!
