John Lewis Alfresco Side Plate

John Lewis Alfresco Side Plate £6.00
Whatever the weather, add a sense of sunshine to outdoor and indoor dining with this glazed side plate. The bold colour of the plate’s face is contrasted with the warm hue of terracotta at its base for a relaxed rustic look. Sun drenched holidays in Southern Europe inspire our Alfresco range. Each piece in the range uses authentic materials; rich terracotta, crafted olive wood, decorative woven baskets, earthy red slate, dipped glassware and colourful woven textiles. Each pattern references the decorative wall and floor tiles, found in both humble kitchens and elaborate places throughout this part of the world. And a saturated palette is borrowed from the Mediterranean sea, sleepy fishing ports and the warm earth tones of stucco clad buildings.

I made Mincemeat Flapjacks

by Diane - December 2nd, 2016

We’ve had mince pies recently but that left us with some mincemeat in the jar. It’s been sat in the fridge for a couple of days and I thought.. what can I do with this? I googled a recipe for mincemeat flapjacks and voila! Here we go!
2016-12-02-14-22-39
The mould I used to shape them was this honeycomb one 

  • 200g mincemeat
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup
  • 300g porridge oats

It’s always fun measuring golden syrup! I did toy with the idea of using honey and adding nutmeg but I thought I’d check them out as they are to start with.
Having tasted one they could certainly be ok if you added some extra cinnamon or nutmeg!

Melt butter with syrup, add mincemeat and stir until all liquidy. Add oats. Stir. Press into lined tin – the silicon cake didn’t need lining but I did spray a little olive oil spray, not sure that was needed at all though. They popped out like a dream after about 22 minutes at 180′C.
They will take slightly longer if they’re in a flat tin. The mould I used worked really well though!

They taste very Christmasy!
