Annabel's Recipes

These recipes were mostly collected together for my daughter when she first left home and needed recipes for the dishes she loved! Of course, she has started her own collection now, I've no doubt. It is no longer being updated, as I have created a food blog instead.

Anyway, I thought I would put them up on my web site simply out of interest. If they were not my recipes, I've given credit, but I'm the sort of person who uses recipes (and knitting patterns) as a starting-point, not as a set of instructions!

At the moment, almost all the recipes are for foodstuffs; I haven't yet collected enough recipes for soap and/or cosmetics that I like enough to list.

Please email me if any of the links are broken (quite probable) or any of the quantities look odd.
