Tigerlilly Quinn: The Great British Farmhouse

The Great British Farmhouse


Yeo Valley sent us their cookbook 'The Great British Farmhouse' last week and I've since made three delicious meals from it. I would have made four but I accidentally added a tablespoon of pepper rather than a teaspoon to the lasagne, and well, there was just no saving it. Still three out of four isn't too bad and you really can't blame them for my mistake. I've found the book extremely easy to follow and love how it uses ingredients you will actually own in your kitchen. On top of that the photography is very appealing and makes you wish you lived a country life tending to your chickens.

On the subject of stupid mistakes (re: the pepper mistake above) in the past couple of weeks I have:
Almost burnt down our kitchen
Locked myself out the house
Smashed my phone
Withdrew money for the week and left it at the cashpoint
Ruined dinner

Honestly don't know whats up with me lately! Anyone else been having a similar time??

As well as having a fantastic cookbook and products I like Yeo Valley as they openly opposed the Badger Cull, a brave move perhaps but in doing so also making a few (like me) loyal customers.

What a rough week! I hope your next week is better ANSI agree with that cookbooks photography - so appealing and makes me want to live on a farm!

It's having children - they leave you with a brain made of mush!

Dinner looks fab - I'm almost obsessed with living in the Country (we're rural, but not rural enough for me - I don't want any neighbours!), so I know exactly what you mean about cookbooks and their photographs.

I love your photos of the cookbooks and food...but lets hope no more mishaps! You sound like m though. :) I have smashed the back side of my phone this last week, broken a glass in my hand, have made cupcakes that sunk in the middle, and banged my elbow really hard.

Hi fritha! I'm new to following your blog and instagram feed - really felt for you with the whole crayon melting thing and the money in the cash point. We've all done that one. If it makes you feel better at all, I decided it might be a good idea last week to try dip dying some linen with navy dye in the bath but didn't wear gloves. I had navy hands and nails most of last week and couldn't face using the fabric for anything as the experience was such a disaster it put me off trying to turn it into a scarf which was the original plan. Nearly every time I tried to pay for something in a shop for the 4 days I had blue skin the sales assistants felt the need to point out that i had blue hands or ask what had happened. I felt like a prize tool! anyway, its a better week this week with normal coloured skin apart from a few red patched from where i tried to 'vanish' myself - (apparently that stuff shouldn't touch bare skin either!). i hope your week is going better and thanks for sharing this cook book - i'm going to buy it and give that tart a go, it looks delish! x
