My best pumpkin pie yet!
In San Joaquin County, at Stockton California they stage an Asparagus Festival in April. Stockton is the centre of asparagus growing in California so it makes sense to celebrate the crop…
An American favourite and an excellent way with cinnamon.
A delicious salad of fresh vegetables, typical of those grown in my childhood home!
Clam chowder is an American classic. You will find it on the menu at any American restaurant. And if it’s not written on the menu, you can safely assume that it will appear by default at the soup and salad bar.
This cheesecake is a perfect partner for summer strawberries.
Here’s a cake that’s a cross between a blueberry muffin and a Dorset apple cake. It tastes fantastic.
“Super simple, and very easy 30 Minute American Style Chopped Salad for two with under 10 ingredients.”
This recipe replicates the crusty and crunchy style of cornbread that is made in a cast iron skillet (but uses a normal cake tin). It also uses a cornmeal that can now be found in most supermarkets.
Now this is an after dinner treat. Picked by mum and dad at local farms and maybe neighbours houses — it’s the perfect after dinner treat.
‘Halloween has passed but we can still make use of the bright orange pumpkin that reminds us of spooky times…’
‘Dad’s attempt to making ‘healthier’ brownies! And wow they are still good even with half the fat and less sugar!’
‘A twist on a Waldorf salad this super tasty meal is a simple master-class in classic flavour combinations’
‘Here’s a dish that you can’t really mess up, it’s a super easy, tasty, family breakfast, full of everything you need to start the weekend.’
‘Milk, and chocolate, two of my favourite things… now I can enjoy a real American style chocolate milk inspired by Dad’s childhood in the states.’
