If you head over to #RSPB Otmoor this weekend, keep your eyes peeled for brown hare. The grass has been cut ready for next year's breeding season so they're much easier to see at this time of year #nature #wildlife
When it comes to quick and satisfying meals Beef Masala Curry has to be at the top of the list. Fragrant spices and tender meat can be on the table in less than an hour. This is one of those outrageously delicious curries, which will make you mop your plate clean and ask for more.
Yule Log: A traditional French bûche de Noël always looks just the right side of cutely enchanting, and there is nothing hard to like about its tender, melting chocolatiness. But I warm to it most of all for the rich pagan symbolism: it is no less than a cake-emulation of the log that the Norsemen would drag home through the streets to burn in celebration of the winter solstice and to honour the gods and hope, thus, to cajole from them a good year to come.
