This old classic has been modernized and scaled down. The biscuit dough absorbs the liquid from the warm soft apples. In an 1888 article on apple dumplings it is said that King George III (1738-1820) had been "sadly puzzled" wondering how the apple came to be inside the dumpling.

For that times that we haven't got much time to spend around the hob, there is nothing better than a Frittata easy simple and can be made with almost anything. This time I've decided to go for bacon and mozzarella Frittata, very similar to a Omelette but without the need of flipping it, I normally tend to be a quite messy when it comes to that particular skills.

So to start off with the first post, I decided to make a meal that screams of comfort food. Whilst it does take a bit of a while to get the meal done, once you take that first bite, heaven couldn’t seem closer if you were Adam trying to touch God’s finger in the “Creation of Adam” fresco created by Michaelangelo. The meal I speak of is Cottage Pie. There is much debate as to what exactly a cottage pie is and how it is different to a Shepherd’s pie...I don’t know. The dominant theory is that Sheperds pie uses lamb mince, whilst a cottage pie uses beef mince. I don’t know about you, but the term “Sheperds Pie” does not get my tastebuds going quite as well, so I prefer the term cottage pie. Besides, comparing the price of ground (mince) beef to ground lamb, a student would pick up the beef mince in a heartbeat without even so much as glancing at the lamb in the meat section. This cottage pie that I made is full of flavour, and just makes you want to cuddle up next to a fire and watch TCM movies all day either by yourself, or with a significant other. Here is the recipe:
