VEGETARIAN DEMI GLACE aka UMAMI BOMB

How do you add intense flavour to your pasta sauces, soups, risotto etc without using meat stock or commercially bought stock cubes? Answer: see title. 
After seeing a video of the same recipe on the ChefSteps Youtube Channel we had a go at making some of our own.

HOSE PIPE HIDEAWAY

Do you have an ugly water tap and hose pipe ruining the look of your designer roof terrace or patio? On the one hand you like having it there because it’s more handy than refilling a watering can. But on the other it’s unsightly. You’d like a means of concealing it in such a way that it remains accessible. So that when you’ve done your watering you can tuck it neatly away until the next time. This week I’ve been commissioned to build a sort of attractive looking cupboard that does just this, with enough space to store a few small garden tools like a trowel, gloves, scissors etc.

IN THESE WOODS...ACACIA MUFFINS


We have been for a walk this weekend. Not to any far land or remote place, just a nice spot to walk Jenna in peace. Leaving the main road behind we venture up an uneven trail into woodland and to nature itself. Every tree, shrub or plant is bursting with life so much that some parts are hard to get through. The vegetation has taken over. The emerald green leaves are not the same you see in summer; they are so vibrant and bright they almost don’t look real.
