I was at an antique book fair a few years back and found a lovely old “Good Housekeeping Cookery Compendium” (1957 edition) which I just had to buy. It sits on my recipe book shelf with pride and has some classic recipes which I use all the time.
Ive recently been looking at the soups and found this great Chestnut Soup.The run up to Christmas means there are lots of chestnuts around and in the supermarkets so you could give this recipe a try!

Here is a different take on Christmas dinner. Imagine popping the slow cooker on and walking away, only to have a perfect meal ready eight hours later with no slaving in the kitchen on Christmas morning. This recipe has all the flavours of Christmas with cranberry, orange and thyme and duck makes a nice change to the traditional turkey.

Christmas preparations taking over here at AM Dietetics headquarters! Speaking of Christmas, I was looking for desserts and puddings using a slow cooker and found this dried fruit compote recipe. This is guaranteed to get the smell of Christmas wafting through your household. I normally don’t really like the smells that fill the house when the slow cooker is on but this one should even get your family Grinch into the spirit of things.

I love to discover new traditional foods. Simnel Cake is a new one to me. It’s a traditional British Easter cake, to celebrate the end of Lent and has been eaten since medieval times. Im obviously a bit slow catching up with this one! I found a lovely recipe to try. Sure, its a cake but a little bit of treat as a celebration now and then is fine. After all, food isnt just about health, its about family, tradition and celebration as well. This recipe serves 12. Happy Easter.
