Visual Recipe Menu

I’ve finally got round to adding the visual recipe list I mentioned back in my pea and mint soup post and then in my breakfast couscous post 😀 . To be honest I was holding back and updating as many of the photo’s as possible. I still am updating these, and I am still learning and improving with various food photography courses. Rest assured though, the recipes are all ones fully tested many times – they rarely change.

Here’s some basic screenshots which show how to navigate to find the visual recipes from the menu bar above. In case you hadn’t already tried / found them. 🙂

1) Select Recipes from the Menu Bar.

2) Select which meal course you want to see. (e.g. Breakfast)

3) Select the meal category you want to see. (e.g. Oats)

And hey presto! All the pictures of the recipes I have produced in that meal course category, so far appear, and you just need to click the one you are interested in to be taken to the post where it is contained and you can print it off. Even without reading my ramblings!!

Tesco Wine Fair

So anyway, how was your weekend? To be honest mine seems like a complete blur now! I said last week that we would be heading to the Tesco Wine Fair in Edinburgh. We did, it was amazing and 3 hours of sampling beautiful wines from all over the world passed quickly in the 3 hours we were there. Funny that…… 😛

We ended up having lunch at Nandos as it was quick and easy. Although quite a warm day in Edinburgh, it was exceptionally windy, so not really a day to be walking about too much. Here’s a photo of Lynne and her friend Jen with Edinburgh Castle in the background.

The other photo’s came out a bit “wobbly”. So we’ll just keep it to this one shall we? Lol. 😉

Thanks for keeping up and following me.

Ingredients
  • 300 g turkey breasts cut into strips
  • 1 tsp Chinese five spice powder
