Magazine Cover Recipes – Macaroni Cheese with crunch crumb and pancetta from BBC Good Food Magazine March 2013 issue

Magazine Cover Recipes - Macaroni Cheese with crunch crumb and pancetta

This is a twist on a classic and a lovely warming winter dish. Infusing the milk for the sauce is always worth the extra time and gives depth to the flavour of the sauce. Paul and Jess both enjoyed the dish. My only criticism would be that I found the proportion of pasta to sauce too high. I prefer a wetter dish, but this could be my personal preference with which not all would agree.

Worth doing again with the addition of the bread and bacon.

Magazine Cover recipes – Glam trifle slice from BBC Good Food January

Magazine Cover recipes - Glam trifle slice from BBC Good Food January

Trifle absolutely delicious and well worth making. I changed the recipe slightly by making my own raspberry jelly, rather than buying a packet of jelly cubes. Jelly is so easy to make and I have a real problem with using most convenience foods. I also made my own cake for the base layer.

It took a few hours to make, so really is a party pudding, rather than an everyday one.

I think that my results look pretty well like the picture, apart from the slightly varied decorations that I used.

Usually I do not make dishes with out of season fruit or vegetables, so in future I’d make this as a summer pudding.

Comments from Paul: “Lovely, and would have been even better without the paper.” (the recipe suggested lining the tin with both cling film and baking parchment, and I think next time I’d not bother with the latter, as it must have disappeared into the custard).
