I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a ‘foodie’ (altho I don’t associate anything negative with the title) but I do love food. I like to cook and I like to find new recipes. I spotted these three on What Katie Does a little while ago but haven’t gotten around to actually making them yet. If anyone has any experience of them, feel free to give me a shout 🙂 Katie’s pictures looked delicious.

Raspberry and white chocolate blondies
I’m sort of ashamed at how long it took me to work out what a blondie was. I had heard people talking about them, and seen blog posts mentioning them and in my head I was imagining a sort of yellow biscuit, I think. It wasn’t until I saw the picture that I realised, duh, they were just a yellow batter brownie.

I’ve never actually made brownies so I’m not sure how good I’ll be at making their lighter counterpart but I’m pretty desperate to give it a go.

Butternut Hummus
I love butternut squash but I never really know what to do with it past making it into a soup or roasting it stuffed with some other veg and some cheese. I like the idea of making a cold dip with it so I couldn’t really pass this one by since I’m seemingly obsessed with hummus.

 As an aside, why are there so many different spellings for hummus? Houmus, houmous, hummus. It makes my head hurt.

Aubergine dip and barbecued poppadums
Q isn’t a fan of aubergine (or dips in general for that matter) so this one might have to wait for a night that we have company. (Maybe Amy would like to come over and try it, I know she likes aubergine 🙂 She did a lovely stuffed aubergine recipe, here). I quite like aubergine but often find the skins a little greasy so I think blending it into a dip might be what I need to really start to love them. Nom.

 I have a folder full of favourites from the BBC Good Food website so expect another one of these in the near future and if you have any suggestions for recipes in the meantime don’t be afraid to let me know them 🙂

  1. houmus/hummous/houmous is a funny one because the word is a transliteration of the arabic (حمّص‎) so it’s essentially a phonetic approximation from an alphabet that we don’t entirely have counterpart letters for. random word-geek fact of the day!
