Let`s Cook #FolksyFriday

Something I haven`t had on here before and decided to do for a change. All things cooking related. The idea came because I looked at the Folksy front page and they had a Gifts for Home Bakers section. After a quick look I decide to go with it as there was lot`s of variety to show on here.
People do seem to be getting into baking more and more again now. Cooking programmes do encourage an interest but I do think that a lot of these scandals in recent years about what is put into ready made foods had made quite a difference.
It does take a little longer to cook food from basics but is much tastier and most of all, you know exactly what has gone into it.
The latest scandal with the horse meat replacing beef in a vast majority of foods from supposedly reputable manufacturers has also stopped people buying ready made food. I think it is very likely the tip of the iceberg and there will be many more such `scandals`. Profit has become king and woe betide anyone who stands in the way of that, be it customer or governing bodies.
With any luck all of this will bring about lasting change in the food industry. After all we expect food to be what it is labelled as. Perhaps we`ll find that meat labelled as beef joints is also misinformation. Wonder how often they are checked.
It`s quite scary to think that these companies have become so huge that they believe they are above the law and so far seem to be.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

The smell of baking wafting through
makes all family members stick like glue,
close to the kitchen, home of the smell
a scent they know all too well.
It means food that is divine,
that looks good and tastes fine.
What to do, what to make?
Well you could bake a cake.
How about a tasty pie for dinner?
That`s bound to be a winner.
Make chutney, jams and jellies
all bound for hungry bellies.
When you create it`s from the heart
even whilst making a delicious tart.
From basics make a lovely curry
it won`t be eaten in a hurry.
You don`t have to be humble
serving up a crunchy crumble.
But whatever you make have fun
and enjoy the results when done!!
