Roasted Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Soup

Roasted Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Soup

There’s very little that grosses me out like the inside of a pumpkin. I don’t mind the seeds, but that weird stringy stuff is horrible. It feels like I don’t even know what. I’m also slightly confused about whether or not I should eat it?! […]

Apple and Caramel Crumble

Apple and Caramel Crumble

Stodgy Puddings Apple crumble has got to be one of my favourite puddings. I talk all the time about how much I love big stodgy puddings with lashings of custard. I honestly don’t think there’s much better. I usually happily eat things like this all […]

Halloween Rocky Road

Halloween Rocky Road

Halloween Humbug I must confess, I’m not really bothered by Halloween. It means we’re a step closer to Christmas, but that’s where my enthusiasm for it ends if I’m honest. When I was a kid, my parents were of the “It’s an American holiday, you’re […]

Minty Double Choc Cookies

Minty Double Choc Cookies

There are plenty of ways to make things minty. Mint essence and flavourings are fantastically effective, and of course actual mint is always a good call. But, when I’m baking anything chocolatey and want to add some mint, my go-to is Mint Aero Chocolate bubbles. […]

Simple Sausage Pasta Bake

Simple Sausage Pasta Bake

Sausages are probably one of my favourite foods. Honestly, a cheap and cheerful sausage and egg sandwich, sausage pasta, a big German sausage from the Christmas market, all of it. They’re easy to cook, go with everything, they’re cheap, and you can do plenty with […]

Twix Rocky Road

Gorgeous Lamb Kleftiko

Gorgeous Lamb Kleftiko

Lamb Kleftiko is indulgent, tasty, filling, and quite simply fantastic. I’ve been to Greece a few times and it’s always been my favourite thing to eat. A big roast joint of lamb is, I guess, pretty warming and wintery. But, Greek food always reminds me […]

Easy One Pot Chicken and Apricot Tagine

Easy One Pot Chicken and Apricot Tagine

So, a tagine is called a tagine, because it’s cooked in a tagine. This isn’t. I haven’t got one. Husband won’t let me have one because he says it will sit in the back of a cupboard and I’ll still make tagines in my cast […]

Easy No Bake Lemon Cheesecake

Easy No Bake Lemon Cheesecake

Cheesecake is one of my great loves. As are lemons. Well, not lemons, no one actually likes lemons. But, lemons as an ingredients or addition (hi gin and tonic!) A few weeks ago, I made an absolutely gorgeous rich chocolate cheesecake. It was the best […]

Earl Grey Loaf Cake with Elderflower Drizzle

Earl Grey Loaf Cake with Elderflower Drizzle

Confession time. My Earl Grey Loaf Cake was meant to have an Elderflower Buttercream, which is absolutely yum. But, I put too much liquid in it, and I’d run out of icing sugar. So, it became an Elderflower drizzle. Still very yum. If you prefer […]
