Here's a couple of things that I tried out last week.

Both the Spiced Applesauce Cake and the Vermontucky Lemonade were recipes from the truly wonderful Smitten Kitchen, if you haven't had the pleasure of reading this blog yet, then you have to make it a top priority as soon as you possibly can!
As a treat for my lovely Mat who finished up his degree literally last week, I decided to also have a go at Julia Child's recipe for French Onion Soup, as I'd recently discovered that he had never tried it yet. Let's just say that there was a LOT of constant onion stirring...around 1 hour in total, but the soup was so incredibly delicious and of course we had it with plenty of bread and melted cheese on top too! Gutted that I didn't get any photos of the soup all plated up in the end, I will have to make another pot soon.
