Fractal Broccoli

 Also known as Romanesco. You've got to admire such geometric form. And it's tasty too

 Mum liked the pumpkin and walnut cupcakes so much she requested them for her birthday
And I made Nigella's chocolate olive oil cake.

Pumpkin and Walnut cupcakes

From magazine. Sadly, not very pumpkiny. Mostly they taste of cinnamon and the lemon icing.

Winter in the Veggie Garden

 After last Winter's complete failure
 and our failure to plant anything in Spring
 thanks to a certain small human
 I'm pretty impressed with the garden this Winter
 There's peas and beans
 And Brussels sprouts and broccoli
 Even some of the things that didn't come up last year have come up this year!
