What a beautiful scene, if all goes quiet here this week you will know I have been tempted to go curl up with her in the B&B! 

I love a before shot! ...

Proof from Dusty too that an Electrikit converted cooker is still a cosy thing to nestle up to!

Anyone seen my suitcase.....?

Have We Lost Our Bottles?

We were honoured to rescue a beautiful 1936 cooker this week, more to come on that! (dirty hard work but worth it). Amongst the oven parts were some old advisory pamphlets and cookbook sheets.

Blake and bull kitchen ware cookware textiles bakeware laundry racks drying racks linens refurbishment spares cleaning re-enamelling recipes baking trays baking tins baking goods  and services for range cookersOn these pages I found a small collection of recipes and instructions for bottling vegetables, not pickling, but wet storing seasonal produce for the oncoming winter. The Aga range cooker oven is used to 'Oven Dry Pack' or 'Can' the allotment or garden hoard in Mason or Kilner jars. In most cases only sugar or salt are added to the water..

With the summer seasonal glut approaching I was keen to know if any of you do this? 

Please do get in touch if you have, or you remember a family member doing so!

Penny's Thoughts..

This coming weekend is the BIGGEST DIY weekend of the year! It is also a weekend of family, food, friends, and The Big Easter Roast! 

Why not give your cooker a spruce up on Good Friday, and reap the rewards of non-stick liners and less cleaning after the roast on Sunday? With temperatures due to hit the mid 20s ℃, who wants to be scrubbing the cooker doors and lids, better to be able to give them a quick wipe and get out in the garden I say! 

Blake and Bull non stick door liners and lid liner replacement kits suitable for use with and on Aga range cookersPenny is really pleased to have more time on her hands now!

"So much more time!! - No more scrubbing lid tops or oven doors. I hate cooking on a dirty cooker and these have saved me so much time! Thank you Blake and Bull for inventing these for the Aga range cooker!" April 2019 ★★★★★

Order by 2 pm tomorrow (17th April)  & choose our 'next day' delivery service to receive a lovely new set on non stick liners like Penny in readiness for fitting over the Easter break!

Springy Spongy Simnel Cake

Community member Denise inspired me to pop a Simnel Cake recipe into our baking guide. 

The Simnel Cake has a history crossed with different influences and tales of its origins. Some say that the boiled then baked recipes are so because of a couple called Simon and Nelly fought about how to make it. Only coming to the compromise of the dual method after giving each other a whack with various utensils! No need to beat each other, this is definitely a bake only recipe!

Blake and Bull baking guide and cookbooks with recipes for use with and suitable for use with an Aga range cooker Photo credits go to @stevecooksbakesmakes, who is a regular contributor to our Baking guide. Although he does admit to losing one of the marzipan spheres! The balls on the top are meant to represent the 11 faithful disciples of Jesus.
