Food: Light and Fluffy Tiramisu Dessert

With my thoughts happily floating through my lovely memories of Tuscany, I decided to carry on with the Italian theme this week and made a Tiramisu, using a family recipe I received from a lab mate I met while studying for my PhD. I've spent this week thinking rather a lot of my own lab experiences (following the Tim Hunt furore) and realised that in my own experience, labs were quite social places.  Yes, there was the odd lab relationship, but workplace romances happen in other places too, not just in science!

Food: Garlicky Asparagus and Pea Risotto

I try to have at least two vege only days per week, and usually opt for a risotto for dinner as they're so easy to make and also pretty filling. While asparagus is still in season I decided to make a Garlicky Asparagus and Pea Risotto. The asparagus is roasted with sliced garlic and dressed with lemon, which is a delicious way to serve it, not only in a risotto.

Food: Mocktail #1 - Virgin (Bloody) Mary

The weather has been lovely over the past few days, which roughly translates into Gin & Tonic weather for me. However, during this self-imposed dry month, I've been experimenting with various mocktails, which has made me realise that if all my soft drinks tasted as good as my Virgin Mary, I probably wouldn't drink any alcohol at all!
