I’m a good cook, but I’m not great at baking. And I’m lousy at pastry.

however, inspired by this recipe which claimed to be “easy flaky pastry”, I thought I’d give it a go.

I had to get perlmonger to come and grate for a while – it was hard work. But *I* rolled out the pastry, and rolled out the sausage meat, and brushed it all with eggy stuff, and put it in the oven, and baked them. And they were *gorgeous*.

the sage plant in the garden had died, so I made do with some rosemary, and a hefty grating of nutmeg.

go me, I think. And we only ate three – the rest have gone in the freezer.

do you nibble?

I had a few days in a lull, workwise – clients on holiday and so forth. So I embarked on a site which I have always wanted to do. It’s still a bit rough round the edges, and I have a lot more features planned, but [fx: fanfare]

ladies and gentlemen, and anyone else who is reading this, we bring you our shiny new recipe sharing and food blogging site.
