I am sure that many of you will be saddened to hear that the website at Penny's recipes is to close down. We thought it would be a suitable way to say good bye if we ran some of the recipes we have had from Penny. In this first one we hear Penny talking about her Goat's cheese and squash tart.
Penny joins us here at Expatsradio.com for her second programme in the series. She says about herself that she is not a trained chef and her world is not all about food. She is a wife who has grown-up children, knows how to survive on a limited amount of money but wants to feed her family with good food while not spending her whole life in the kitchen. She is also aware of the limits of Nature's resources. Her children grew up eating home-prepared, freshly made, mashed meals and not packaged dishes unless it was absolutely necessary. Although not a purist she has spent a lot of time in supermarkets checking labels and is only too aware that delicious, fresh, home-prepared dishes are the best way to feed your family and they definitely do no need to be complicated.
She continues: I hope these programmes and my website will inspire people to try some new recipes – and tell me what they think.
It’s so important to use the recipes as a base, just an outline idea, and to make changes where you don’t have all the ingredients – or just think the recipe would be better, slightly changed.
Then share ideas. There is nothing more inspiring than someone’s enthusiasm and passion for their favourite food.
That’s enough about me – I look forward to hearing from you at www.pennysrecipes.com
