Rocky Road Cheesecake

Rocky Road Cheesecake

Rocky road and cheesecake are two of my favourite things. Rocky road is great because it’s super simple. You mix all of your favourite things together and basically cover them in chocolate. Which is just wonderful. I always think that Rocky Road is basically a […]

Easy Haggis Burger Recipe

Easy Haggis Burger Recipe

Haggis is something that I suspect many of us outside of Scotland have never tried. Those of us that have might have only had it in the traditional neeps and taties type way. I had never tried it until last year, but I’d always been […]

Beef Bourguignon

Beef Bourguignon

I love a good old-fashioned stew. Whether it’s slow cooked in the oven, or quickly simmered up on the stove top. I love a classic stew were you just throw it all into a dish with some stock and let it cook, and I love […]

Mint Rocky Road

Mint Rocky Road

I love mint chocolate. It’s such a fantastic flavour. I’m particularly fond of After Eights, mint matchmakers and mint options hot chocolate. My dad always used to have After Eights at Christmas, so mint chocolate reminds me of Christmas, even though it’s not a remotely […]

Leftover Turkey Chilli

After Eight Brownies

After Eight Brownies

After Eights are one of those things that aren’t really remotely christmasy. But, we eat them at Christmas, and don’t really have them the rest of the time, so they’ve become a Christmas food. To be fair, you could argue that this is true of […]

Banoffee Loaf Cake

Bananas I love bananas. So do the kids, which means that despite the fact that I can’t stand them with any green or even a touch of brown and will only eat them for about a 2 hour period, we very rarely have any that […]

Christmas Rocky Road

Christmas Rocky Road

I love any kind of Rocky Road. It’s basically a fancy pimped up biscuit, and I’ve got so much time for that. Christmas is kind of the perfect time for it too, because there’s loads of yummy sweets and chocolates everywhere for you to throw […]

Easy Apple Upside Down Cake

Easy Apple Upside Down Cake

I love an upside down cake. I love fruity puddings generally, but an upside down cake is brilliant. You can really taste the fruit, it keeps its juiciness and flavour, the cake is almost an accompaniment to the wonderful cooked fruit. Apple Upside Down Cake […]
