Thanks both!!!

I like making my own drop scones, nothing fancy but they're lovely when they're still warm dripping in butter and jam.

Flour 8oz
Milk 1/2 pint (I think)
Egg 1 big
Cream of tartar 1/2 tsp
Baking soda 1/2 tsp
salt some
Sugar 1oz

P.S These aren't baked, sorry

You asked for treats. Meat is my favorite food. Ask my grandson...

Not sweet enough?

Put a couple of slices of pineapple on ham...
Put a generous dollop of grape jam on ribs...


Then hack off a bit and put it on a cracker...

Carnivours are Us. :bg:

Can't wait to have a beer with you sometime Pete! You think like I do!

As for cookies and what not--anything with peanut butter and/or oatmeal.

My wife makes an oatmeal cake that will knock your socks off and fold 'em for you too!

Chocolate covered peanut butter balls are always good. Oatmeal cookies, peanut butter cookies, peanut butter fudge, etc.

Notice a trend? :beer:

Chocolate cake only instead of using flour, you grind up almonds and use that as flour.

Also, depends on the man and his taste buds.

My guy loves anything Mexican or Chinese flavored.

Anything following single malt.

Tartaniac, I'm with you - Single Malt, Chocolate and Chillies - the perfect cookie combination perhaps???:mlf:

I am very fortunate here, in that my Wife is an ex Chef at what was one of the top restaurants in the Midlands many years ago?, She can make meals that add inches to the waistline just looking at them, and her Cakes, etc are astounding? just look at my photos? you will see what I mean.
What particular Cookies etc are you looking for Carla? I will ask her nibs for some recipes for you?, although she has most of them in her head

Who likes Sherry Trifle?

17-11-06, 12:02 PM
I make a fabulous sherry trifle(if I say so myself). I cook in our local pub/coffee house/bistro (on my days off from my full time job) and it always goes down a storm.

17-11-06, 12:26 PM
i only like the trifle my gran makes cause she puts pretty much the entire bottle of sherry in it :bg:

Quite right, Matt. The grandson is over for the weekend.

Breakfast tomorrow will be sausage and bacon. Maybe some toast.

An egg for the lady wife.

Hey Grace, here's a healthy choice muffin, my husbands favourite (believe it or not) and approved by our Dietitian.

1 & half cups oats , put thru food processor to make like flour
1 cup of self raising flour
Couple of tablespoon of light olive oil
A dash of vanilla essence
1 or 2 eggs (take your pick)
And as much skim milk as required for consistency

The mix is fairly gluggy uncooked.
Place in muffin tray and cook

A heart healthy option. But here's the really good bit, my husband takes these healthy muffins and adds lashings of butter (unless I catch him) or you can serve with yogurt.
BUT if the kids don't like them, you just give them a couple and a baseball bat and send them outside to play. I guarantee this muffins will bounce for hours LOL, but they're healthy
