Mum has been getting cooking magazines for years. They used to have them in a rack by the cashier in the supermarket. For as far back as I can remember she has popped a copy of ‘Family Circle’ & ‘Woman’s Weekly’ in the trolley, every Wednesday, along with her weekly shop. Not strictly cooking mags but they gave the modern mother a few ideas about what she could be cooking for her young family.
Times have changed & along with the boom in home cooking, over the last 20 years, has come an extensive range of culinary literature. The popularity of such magazines has reached a point where each supermarket, in the UK, publishes their own food based periodical.
Mum has always used them for inspiration. Trying out new recipes & passing them on to my sisters & I if they’re any good. She often brings them over, when she visits, for us to peruse together.
I found this recipe in the ‘Good Food Magazine‘ while looking for ideas for what to make for Zephy to take to school as a morning snack.
They came out of the oven just before we sat down for dinner.
“Can I have one?” Asked Zephy staring wide eyed at the warm buns.
“We’re just about to sit down to dinner now big guy.” I told him.
“Can I just have a bite then?” He said.
“Go on then, just a bit.” I said.
“Mmmmm,.” He said closing his eyes. “That is lovely.”
I froze the rest of the buns, even the half eaten one. 😉
