Winter Baking

It is late winter now, and still cold outside, hot and delicious baking is still the winner for my family.

The trend of cooking now days is to be practical and make the most of vegetables for tasty and delicious cooking. How to cook with vegetable cores and stems.  Do not waste them.
I baked muffins by using the core of cauliflower and the stems, they are very tender vegetables and very good.  What I did simply clean them, dice into small pieces, and I added some cheese, self rising flour, butter and an egg.  Mix a lovely batter, place on muffins tin and bake in a hot oven for 18 minutes, what I got was beautiful and delicious muffins.

Hot soup and the Garnished

Hot soup is winter warmer.  To dress up you need something delicious to go with.  I did savoury bread twists, and they were a treat.

There are no written recipes here, but may be these dishes give you idea for preparing hot food, the ingredients are easily available from any market or supermarket.  Particularly, we have to learn and try to make the best of vegetables without any waste.

Spring is coming soon, but it is still cold outside.  Staying and busy baking delicious food is the best way to fill the time.
I enjoy the cold weather so far but keeping warm and comfy staying in the house to be with the family is the best.
