If I sign up for a brownie, this is the one that I want.

New Year’s Day Pancakes

January 1, 2014

My New Year's resolution is to worry less about things being 'just so'. This may mean you see a few more posts like this; Just things we do every day, not fussy or clever…just the things we make.

If you've never heard of Minecraft then this may not mean anything to you. But let me tell you...this is the ideal weapon to save yourself from the zombie apocalypse.

I usually just make half a batch of these oat and almond biscuits. A full plateful would be too tempting, but don't let me stop you.

Caramel Apple Cloud Pancake

May 18, 2012

Oh really...more oven baked pancakes? I know, I know, but this one is another winner. I promise. It's a good way to turn a crisp green apple into a decadent dessert for two or a greedy breakfast for one. What's not to like?

Make it Flaky

May 8, 2012

12

I am not sharing this because it’s healthy. I am not sharing this because it’s pretty. It’s not even a clever or complicated dish. In fact…you could say that it’s just a big sausage roll. Point taken. I wanted to show you a quick flaky pastry recipe that I think is easier to make than […]

This Raspberry Coconut Ice from Dan Lepard tastes good, it's pretty, easy to make and you don't need to cook it. I like that it's kind of retro too.

Oh, I almost forgot. Here is my vague nod towards Easter chocolatiness. Fresh popcorn, drizzled with melted white chocolate, sprinkled with ‘hundreds and thousands’, a pinch of salt and Cadbury’s mini eggs. Good for Easter weekend movie viewing. Happy Easter.

Something for Shrove Tuesday or a Weekend breakfast: A light as a cloud, honey pancake that has whipped egg white folded in for extra oomph!

Pierniczki

December 17, 2011

Today I made some Piernickzi from a recipe that I had seen on Ren Behan‘s Fabulicious blog. They are spiced Polish gingerbread biscuits that also work well as decorations and they are flavoured with ginger, cinnamon, mixed spice and all things nice. It’s a lovely dough to work with and the recipe made 5 trays […]

Brandy Christmas Pudding Pops

December 9, 2011

16

Have you had enough of cake pops yet? I think I have. But I decided to share these anyway. I know how you like it when baking goes bad. I had good intentions. I decided to make them for a New Years Eve party and I thought I could make good use of a McVities […]
