Desserts, Ice Cream & Frozen Delights / 25.08.2020

Sponsored.I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for summer! I might be getting a bit ahead of myself but in preparation for warmer, sunny days I made this luscious layered frozen yoghurt dessert.This striking strawberry and vanilla frozen yoghurt cake is perfect when you’re expecting guests as it can be made well in advance and looks way harder to make than it actually is! Each layer is made with just a few ingredients and simply requires a little patience for the layers to freeze. I’ve used two new flavours of Nutriday Full Cream Yoghurt, - fruity strawberry and...

Desserts, Ice Cream & Frozen Delights, Recipes / 25.04.2020

I don't know about you, but I'm so ready to see my friends again! It's been 6 weeks of lockdown now - that's 6 weeks of not leaving the house at all. Although I've always been quite a home-body and enjoyed spending my days in the kitchen, it's not quite the same when you don't have anyone to share your creations with. My husband has some of it, but he actually doesn't have much of a sweet-tooth! So although it still feels like an absolute age until we can have friends round for dinner again, I've already planned the...

From a foodie point of view, Easter is definitely my favourite holiday. Who wouldn't love a holiday that involves large amounts of chocolate and spicy hot cross buns! For someone who loves to bake like me, I never have a shortage of ideas around this time of year. Rocky road may not be the most sophisticated of these ideas, however, I can guarantee you it will bring a smile to even the grumpiest of faces! The variety of textures is what makes rocky road so delicious - a bit of crunch, a bit of marshmallowy softness, crisp sugary shells and lots...

Desserts, Recipes, Tarts & Pastries / 06.03.2020

These easy mini lemon tarts came about on one of those really manic days. I was short on time but had to prepare some snacks for book club. The savouries were sorted, but knowing my friends would be gobsmacked if I didn't serve any sweet treats I frantically searched through my fridge and freezer for some short-cut ingredients. Happily, I found some leftover pastry in the freezer (I always make a double batch for this very reason!), and a jar of home-made lemon curd in the fridge. Problem solved! In less than 30 minutes, I had cut out and...

Recipes, Tarts & Pastries / 17.04.2019

I'm so excited - Easter is just 4 days away! For me Easter weekend is about spending time with loved ones, over-indulging in chocolate and lazily enjoying the gorgeous change-of-season weather. I find it to be a much more relaxing holiday than Christmas - there's no mad rush to buy a bazillion gifts in heaving shopping malls for a start. If you have a relaxing weekend planned, this No-bake Chocolate Easter Egg Tart is just for you. There is no baking or pastry-making involved, since it is made with a buttery biscuit crust. The filling (a simple yet decadent chocolate...

This Rolo Pastry Braid is dangerously easy to make! Essentially it is just a slab of chocolate, wrapped in puff pastry and sprinkled with almonds and baked. Easy, huh? If you are a fan of chocolate and caramel together, then I'm guessing you love Rolo's as much as I do. You can now buy Rolo's in chocolate slab form, which worked out wonderfully for me in making this dessert. The chocolate and caramel melt together when baked, making the most ooey gooey, delicious filling. However, you could really use any slab of chocolate you like! Ingredients: (Serves 4) 400g sheet ready-made puff pastry 150g Rolo...

Desserts, Ice Cream & Frozen Delights / 25.01.2019

It's no secret that I love Banoffee Pie! The simple combination of bananas, caramel, whipped cream and crunchy biscuits is a classic that I never get bored of. A recent Instagram poll confirmed that just like me, many of you also love this combo, especially on waffles! This got me thinking what a great ice cream flavour it would make. Using the same ingredients as Banoffee Pie (except for melted butter), I was able to make this easy no-churn Banoffee Ice Cream. I like to freeze my ice cream container before-hand, and also have my cream and caramel very cold before I...

Cakes & Cupcakes, Desserts, Recipes / 16.01.2019

If it's a light and fresh dessert you're after, you've come to the right place. This delicious Lemon and Ginger Cheesecake makes a great ending to a heavy meal. The tartness of the lemon curd cuts through the richness of the creamy cheesecake leaving you wanting more with every bite! If that hasn't got your mouth watering then imagine the addition of a scrumptiously crunchy ginger biscuit crust. The result is the perfect combo of citrus and spice! This cheesecake is really simple to make but needs to be prepared a few hours in advance. Or save yourself some time and make it...

Edible Gifts, Recipes, Sweets & Treats / 23.11.2018

If you're looking for an easy edible gift this festive season, look no further! This Cranberry and Pistachio Fudge uses only white chocolate and condensed milk as the base, plus there's no sugar thermometer required. So technically it's not real fudge (made with butter, sugar and cream) but I'm all for shortcuts at this very busy time of year! It's hard to believe something so delicious takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. The white chocolate makes the fudge extra creamy and sweet, then the cranberries add a lovely bit of tartness. Add to that the crunchy chunks of gingersnaps and...

Biscuits & Cookies, Brownies & Bars, Recipes / 14.08.2018

What makes a recipe "magic"? How about adding 7 ingredients to a baking tin, popping in the oven, and removing perfectly layered bars like this?* If you're impressed already, then just wait until you taste these Magic Bars. Oh. My. Word. I was actually quite taken aback by the deliciousness of them. Imagine a crunchy biscuit base, topped with a soft chocolate layer, chewy coconut and almonds and lastly a layer of crunchy golden granola. All these flavours and textures do a magic happy dance in your mouth, and before you know it you're reaching for another one.  At this point I expect...
