Farewell & Spring Renewal

Pesto and Sunddried tomato Stuffed Chicken breast

I’m very happy to finally say that this will be the final post on BuffyandGeorge.com. Very soon, I will be unveiling my brand spanking new blog and all the ‘Buffy and George’ content will be on there! However much I loved the name ‘Buffy and George’ when I first started blogging several years ago, it [...]

Friends and a Birthday Giveaway!

Brunette-Baker-Giveaway

A funny thing has been happening to me lately; I seem to have developed a social life without really realizing that it is happening. Growing up I spent a lot of time at home watching tv or reading all weekend while my sister when out or had her friends over. I was generally ok with [...]

Braised Chicken Thighs in a Mushroom Cream Sauce

Braised Chicken Thighs in Cream Sauce

I really want to like using a slow cooker but I just don’t. I’ve tried lots of different recipes and there are very few that I don’t mind using the crock pot for. I think the crock pot is great when you have some meatballs you want to keep warm in a bbq sauce for [...]

Even though it has warmed up slightly, I still want to [...]

Turkey Stock to Waste Not, Want Not

Simple Turkey Soup

I don’t bother with New Year’s Resolutions and from the fodder that is cluttering up my Facebook and Twitter feeds, nor do most people. It leads me to think that nobody actually makes New Year’s resolutions. They are as much a myth as a really great New Year’s Eve Party. What did you do on [...]

Gingerbread Madeleines

Gingerbread-Madeleines-703x1024

I have a confession that will make the true bakers among you cringe. I very seldom use unsalted butter when I bake. I know people go on and on about how important it is to use unsalted butter when baking but, frankly, I don’t think it really matters that much. Perhaps because when not creating [...]
