A few Sticky Buns

May 22, 2016

8

Morning all. Ed is on his Sunday morning walk in the woods with Ernie and George is having his first lie in for weeks so I’ve just got time to share my sticky buns with you. There are many, many more buns to be found on thingswemake but I like this recipe as it’s not […]

Carrot Cakes

March 21, 2016

6

I had fun making these cakes for this month’s Center Parcs blog. I’ve wanted to share these mini carrot cakes with you for a while. It’s a failsafe recipe and they are very moist and moreish, especially with the tangy cream cheese frosting. Instead of my usual standby of making cakes and sticking mini eggs on […]

The Easiest Coconut & Lime Loaf

Oh my. Have I got a back catalogue building up? Yes…yes I have. I keep developing and jotting down recipes. Testing, eating, altering, trying again. I write them up in draft and just don’t get around to taking a photo and posting them on here. Here’s one to be going on with. As with most […]

Sometimes you just need a no-nonsense cake. One for the weekend, obligingly providing slices of dense, butteriness with every cup of tea. One for when friends are calling in and you want to offer sustenance, but nothing too fussy. One to wrap in foil and take on a camping trip or to stuff into a rucksack for a walk on […]

Cheese Scones & New Kitchens

Can it be true? Can my kitchen finally be finished and I can get on with all the cooking? Seriously, it felt like years to get this far (11 to be precise) First we revelled in the idea of going out for dinner and several takeaways per week, but it’s surprising how quickly the novelty […]

This old fashioned Gingerbread tastes more delicious than the simple recipe has any right to. Sometimes the old ones are the best.

Apple Turnovers

It’s been a while, so I thought I’d break us in gently with a nice, simple turnover. We’ve been through a lot you and I. We’ve made good things and bad things, sown stuff and grown stuff, been places and filled our faces. I feel sad that I’ve not been sharing, but there are times […]
