Vincent Price’s Barbecued Double Hamburgers

Vincent Price’s Barbecued Double Hamburgers

I had a lovely day off yesterday, spending it baking like a lunatic for today’s Muswell Hill and District Horticultural Society Autumn Show cookery contest.  I made 8 cakes!  Admittedly, 2 are for the cake stall, but I’ll have 6 in...
Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

Ooh, I think I have perfected the non-cup measurements, for this best of all cakes.  I misread my scribbled post it note, stuck on the page of The Treasury of Great Recipes, from when I made it last time.  I used a lot more flour than in theory I should...
Vincent Price’s Crostata Di Mele (Apple Tart)

Vincent Price’s Crostata Di Mele (Apple Tart)

The Muswell Hill and District Horticultural Society Summer Show was loads of fun.  It’s not as mad as the Spring show, as there are less cooking categories, nevertheless there was some bonkers last minute rushing around yesterday morning to get...
Vincent Price’s Toad in the Hole

Vincent Price’s Toad in the Hole

Tonight I’ve been practising my mini toad in the holes for Saturday’s Strolling Supper Club.  I’m joining forces with Battenberg Belle and Davie from Seven Songs  to raise money for the Alice Youth Music Memorial Fund....
Vincent Price’s Baked Whole Sea Bass

Vincent Price’s Baked Whole Sea Bass

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the Mersea Island fishermen sell some of their catch directly from the quayside between 2.45 and 4.30pm.  So we bundled down there to get ourselves some fresh fish. There were some lovely looking flat fish such as lemon sole, dabs, an...

Exciting plans are falling into place for Victoria Price’s visit to London in November, to launch the 50th anniversary edition of her parents’ wonderful book; A Treasury of Great Recipes.  I’ve been helping to organize a couple of events for...
Vincent Price’s French Bread

Vincent Price’s Coq Au Vin Rouge a L’Avergnate

“That is chicken supreme”, said Mr R about this dish, and he also pointed out that there’s no need to panic about it, if you have left it overnight in your fire escape. I shall explain.  I made this on a Saturday as I had 5 guests coming for dinner...
Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

The name of this cake doesn’t do it justice.  If I had the power to go back in time, I might suggest to Mary and Vincent that it should be known as “The Price’s Divine Pineapple and Macadamia Nut Cake”.  It’s my favourite film...
Vincent Price’s Scotch Shortbread

Vincent Price’s Scotch Shortbread

I was single for 8 years (with some little hiccups along the way) so I do know what it’s like when Valentine’s Day is on the horizon and you haven’t got a significant other.  But this year, as last, I do have a lovely Valentine and I’m...
Vincent Price’s Buckingham Eggs

Vincent Price’s Buckingham Eggs

It’s my annual spinster’s day!  I do so love to have a day to myself now and then, doing exactly whatever the hell I like.  Today is such a day.  I am on annual leave, and still in my pyjamas at 1pm with no intention of getting out of them....

Vincent Price’s Genoa Pizza

Vincent Price’s Genoa Pizza

Have you ever had haggis on a pizza?  I did on Burns Night and it was DELICIOUS!  It was my chum Nathan who came up with this idea and he guided me through the process at a pizza extravaganza for 6 at Silver Screen Suppers Towers on Burns’s birthday....

Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

My life has been changed forever by this book, I hope… A fair bit of toot and 30 books have left the building already, and there will be more sliding out the door over the next 6 months.  For that’s how long the process is going to take methinks, but...
Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

It’s the One Reeler Film Club at the Cinema Museum tonight so I have made a cake.  It smells and looks delicious but I’ve never made it before so I’ll have to wait until tonight to find out how it tastes.  If it is good, I will return and...

My September feature for Eat Drink Films is up, and it is all about guacamole this month. I have tested more movie star guacamole than you could shake a chili at over the last few weeks.  I am carrying around a guacamole baby alongside the noodle baby at the...
Vincent Price’s Chicken Curry

Vincent Price’s Pepitas a la Curry

These are BRILLIANT! I’ve been meaning to have a go at these for years, and I finally got around to it. Partly because a little jar of these have been earmarked as one of my competition prizes. They will be heading to the States sometime soon. I gave a little jar to...
Vincent Price’s Pineapple Nut Bread

Vincent Price’s Saffron Rice

I like a rice you bake in the oven, especially when it is baking hot in the kitchen.  Mine gets very hot and steamy if there are lots of things on the hob and at the moment in the UK we are having a HEATWAVE.  It’s lovely. For the book group I had made the...
Vincent Price’s Chicken Curry

Vincent Price’s Chicken Curry

It was my turn to host the book group last week and it is now tradition that I make a 10 boy curry.  We didn’t have the 10 boys parading around with the condiments, they were on the sideboard, or the “buffeteria” as Lindsey christened it the last time we had a 10...

Vincent Price’s Quince Marmalade

Vincent Price’s Quince Marmalade

Vincent Price’s Buckingham Eggs

Vincent Price’s Buckingham Eggs

When I was single Buckingham Eggs was my regular “Spinster Saturday” treat.  I love this stuff.  Anchovies. Mmmm. Eggs.  Mmmmm.  Cheese.  Mmmmm.  I was on my lonesome most of the weekend before Easter, and I had a bit of a trip down...
Vincent Price’s Scotch Shortbread

Vincent Price’s Scotch Shortbread

After the disaster that was Myrna Loy’s Shortbread I wasn’t sure about entering this category for the MHHSSS (see previous post) but I spotted this recipe in The Treasury of Great Recipes and it sounded good.  And good it certainly was.  I did...
Vincent Price’s Racquet Club Spiced Vinegar

Vincent Price’s Racquet Club Spiced Vinegar

I am shocked to the core.  Today when I got home from work, the Muswell Hill & District Horticultural Society Handbook and Schedule of Spring, Summer and Autumn Shows 2014 was on my doormat.  Despite assurances from the committee  that the cookery...
Vincent Price’s Pots De Creme Chocolat

Vincent Price’s Pots De Creme Chocolat

Chocolate mousse was obviously a big favourite in the world of puds for movie stars.  I have recipes by Deborah Kerr, Jack Hobbs, Moira Lister, Raymond Burr, Rose Martin, Wendy Toye, Agnes Ayres, and Carol Burnett.  There are possibly more tucked away under...
Vincent Price’s “New Fashioned” Cocktail

Vincent Price’s “New Fashioned” Cocktail

Vincent Price’s Poached Eggs Harlequin

Vincent Price’s Poached Eggs Harlequin

Mmmm.  Yes.  I do like these.  Mr R however, has something against stuff that “moves around on the plate” so I made him a naked version with the sauce on the side.  He took dainty tastes of it from the tip of his knife.  He’s...
Vincent Price Quince Marmalade

Vincent Price Quince Marmalade

Mmmmmmmmarmalade…  This marmalade is darn good.  Reminds me a bit of Rose’s Lime Marmalade for some reason.  (thanks to fab new website discovery The Middle Class Handbook for the pic) Do quinces taste like limes in some circumstances?  I do not...

Vincent Price’s Brown and White Cookies

Hatty’s Silly Radio Show was so much fun to do.  Hatty cracks me up. You can have a listen here – we talked a LOT about Vincent Price and his cooking prowess.  I took in some Vincent Price Brown and White Cookies as well as the aforementioned Pink Tonics. I...
Vincent Price’s Pink Tonics

Vincent Price’s Pink Tonics

I smuggled some cocktail supplies into the radio station but of course, we didn’t have any drinks anywhere near the equipment.  Oh no, I promise, we didn’t.  Of course not. These are very good little tipples.  Basically a gin & tonic (or vodka &...
