• Today’s bake: Cheese and courgette muffins

    I had a courgette in the fridge that was looking a bit sad. Before it went to waste I thought I’d make some of these keto zucchini cheese muffins. They are a lovely light consistency, and have a good flavour - mainly egg and cheese, I didn’t really get any flavour from the courgette. I think I’d maybe add some pepper and possibly chilli flakes another time to give a bit of a kick. These would be a good breakfast - we had them as a lunch with a salad.

    Notes for the future me:

    • I used the metric measurements given on the recipe
    • I swapped the butter for olive oil
    • I was a bit nervous about the quantity of dried herbs, so reduced them from a tablespoon to a teaspoon of both thyme and oregano. I was probably being over cautious
    • I had to bake them for closer to 20 minutes to get them to turn golden

  • Morning flowers in the Rest Garden

    There are flowers appearing at all parts of the Rest Garden looking beautiful in the morning sunshine


  • Yesterday’s bake: Maple spiced and toasted walnuts

    As well as the muffins and some cheese scones, I made these maple toasted walnuts. They’re pretty moreish. Not sure they’ll last long.
