Bite 'N' Write Food Bloggers Conference ~ 19th November 2011

Bite 'n' Write is the first UK food bloggers conference to be held outside London and is taking place on Saturday 19th November 2011 at The Custard Factory in Birmingham…more to the point I am going (yay!). I’m excited to be finally meeting some of my long time blogging friends and the programme for the day looks useful and informative (the goody bag will be an added bonus).

Here is a sneaky peak at the day (please note some elements may change).

10:40am–11:00am Welcome speech (and short speech from Action Against Hunger)
11:00am–12:00noon Food Photography workshop by Craig Fraser from FraserShot
12:00am–1:00pm Indian Banquet Lunch provided by Bipins
1:15pm–1:45pm Promoting your blog using Social Media and SEO by Judith Lewis
1:50pm –2:20pm Finding your blogging voice by Jeanne Horak from Cooksister
2:00pm–2:45pm Cooking demo by Craig McKnight from WeGrowOurOwn/ Chocolate Tasting by Artisan du Chocolat
2:45pm–3:00pm Tea & Coffee, mingle time
3:00pm–3:30pm Recipe Developing and Food Allergies by Charlotte Pike from GoFreeFoods
3:35pm–4:15pm WordPress workshop by James Bolton from Derezzed Media
4:15pm–4:45pm Video Blogging by Ben Frazer from Cupcake Artisan
4:45pm–5:00pm Thank you speech
5:00pm–6:00pm Drinks

I’m particularly looking forward to the photography workshop by Craig Fraser, as this is an area that I know I need to improve. I’m also looking forward to the talk on ‘Finding Your Blogging Voice’ from Jeanne. Her blog CookSister! was one of the first blogs I read and ultimately inspired me to set up Jam and Clotted Cream.

A few of us will be making our way to Jamie’s Italian after the conference for some food and drinks and I’m hoping there will be time to visit Birmingham’s Christmas Market.

There are still tickets available, either for the full day or half day – it would be great to see as many of you as possible. If you are going let me know!

Microwave Jambalaya

Microwave meals are back and this is a fab bung it in the microwave recipe that's a real lifesaver when time is short...or when you don't have the use of an oven! People don't tend to use their microwaves for actually making meals but I've found I can do quite a lot in mine...veggie chilli, risotto's, as well as this really flavourful jambalaya with chorizo and red pepper.

I'll be posting more easy microwave meals in the coming weeks so keep an eye out on the blog.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…
