It’s that time of year when delicious juicy Cherry Time™ cherries are in season! Just like last year, I was invited to visit the Cherry Time farm in Worcester. We had a short demo on how to correctly pick cherries (each stalk individually by hand!) followed by a stunning picnic lunch in the orchards. After that, there was time to pick as many cherries as we could fit in our baskets (with a few cheeky nibbles inbetween!).While admiring my harvest of juicy plump cherries, I got to thinking how gorgeous they look just as they are. So instead of using...

A few weeks ago I was gifted a huge box of pistachio nuts from Wercon Boerdery. Brett and I devoured the roasted and salted pistachios in a matter of hours (so moreish!) but luckily I was left with several bags of beautiful shelled pistachios to create something delicious with. I immediately knew I wanted to make a pavlova - a dessert that for some reason has never appeared on the blog (these meringue nests come pretty close though!). In truth this is actually a hybrid between a pavlova and a Mozart cake. A pavlova is an Australian dessert made...

Last week a neighbour gifted me a bag of beautiful ripe passion fruit. I set about making a big batch of passion fruit curd (recipe coming soon!) but had plenty fruit leftover. I've been meaning to reshoot a raspberry cheesecake recipe from many years ago and decided to remake it with a passionfruit topping instead! I was so pleased with the flavour and thought it looked really striking too. Despite technically being a "no-bake" cheesecake, I find that baking the crust for a few minutes really amps up the toasty, biscuity flavour of the cheesecake. This combined with a creamy, almost...

Sponsored.When you bring this stunning showstopper of a dessert to the table, you’ll definitely receive a few ooh’s and aah’s from your guests – and that’s before they’ve even tasted it! Little do they know that it’s actually super-easy to make, especially for such a grand and impressive dessert.Despite trying to imitate a Christmas Pudding, this baby tastes nothing like it! No heavy, stodgy pudding here, just rich chocolate ice cream and lots of crunchy Bakers®  Biscuits, roasted hazelnuts and juicy red glacé cherries. All of this topped with a creamy white chocolate ganache (essential for that Christmas Pudding look) and some cherries for a festive flair.  (When...

Sponsored. Mille feuille literally means "a thousand leaves" and refers to all the paper-thin layers formed by the puff pastry in this classic French dessert. Although it may look intimidating, a mille feuille is actually not difficult to make. Nine times out of ten I will use shop-bought puff pastry, but when I have a bit of time on my hands, I find making my own really rewarding! So I have included both options here for you. Rough puff pastry is very similar to puff pastry in flavour and texture, but instead of using slabs of butter when folding, grated butter is used which...

When paging through my copy of Bibby's Kitchen - The essence of good food by Diane Bibby, the first recipe I wanted to try was an obvious one! I love the sophisticated simplicity of a perfectly made panna cotta, and I was intrigued to try the peppered sherry caramel sauce.The recipe did not disappoint! The panna cottas are deliciously rich with just the right amount of wobble, and the addition of roasted white chocolate is pure genius. A boozy hit of sherry, plus a little heat from the pepper tempers the sweet panna cottas perfectly.This book is an absolute must-have...

Valentine's Day is here once again (where did January go?!) and I couldn't let the day pass without making some suitably romantic treats. It's the one holiday where I don't restrain my urges to go all out, over-the-top pink and sugary on you guys! So here are some pretty White Chocolate and Cherry Hearts. These little hearts are a fun and easy no-bake treat that can be made with just a few ingredients. The filling is made from icing sugar, condensed milk and cherry flavour, with a touch of lemon juice to balance out all that sweetness. I got the cherry...

With a rich buttery flavour and crisp texture, vanilla butter cookies are just perfect in their simplicity! They're absolutely delicious as is, but can also be iced or dipped in chocolate. I’m still rather obsessed with caramelised white chocolate so I chose to use it to sandwich two cookies together for an extra indulgent treat. As simple as these cookies are, a few little tips can really help you perfect them. Splurge a little and use real vanilla paste or extract - not only will you be able to see the little vanilla seeds in the cookies, but the authentic...
