Chocolate and Orange Marble Cake

Hello all! I know I have not posted in a couple of weeks, I have been a busy lady! But I am back now 🙂 Let’s see what’s cooking. Chocolate and orange is one of my favourite flavour combinations and since we had a bowl full of oranges at home, I couldn’t help myself but…

Healthy Carrot Muffins

So you see the word ‘healthy’ before something that is supposed to be a treat, and you automatically think it is going to be horrible right? Wrong! I’ve never tried one of those recipes that replaces every normal ingredient for something exotic and hard to find because I simply can’t be bothered to look for these…

Baba Ganoush and Flatbread

Baba Ganoush! Have you ever tried it? I think I just made it because I like to say it…Baba Ganoooooush. Go on say it with me, I can hear you trying to pronounce it. Baba Ganoush is a mezze or dip that is made from roasted aubergines and it widely eaten in Lebanese cuisines. Now…

Garlic, Rosemary and Chilli Sausage Rolls :)

Have you ever tried making your own sausage rolls? They are so easy and a lot tastier than some of those ready made ones you find in the supermarkets. Making your own means you can add whatever flavour you want and you know what goes into them. No hidden nasty ingredients! All you need is…

Classic Victoria Sponge? Yes please.

I know I know, its January and we are all supposed to be super healthy, but life is too short. And what am I supposed to do when I have extra double cream in the fridge? I can’t let it go to waste. That would be wrong. There is something very satisfying about a Victoria…

A Christmas treat…Gingerbread!

Merry Christmas everyone! It’s the best time of the year, a time when you can bake as much as you want and not feel guilty about it. So this year I decided to make gingerbread and oh my gosh they are so delicious and dangerously easy to keep eating. Now please don’t laugh at my…

The Great Yorkshire Pudding

The big day is nearly here! Are you ready to make an epic Christmas dinner? It’s the best part of the day and what would it be without homemade, fresh and crisp Yorkshire puddings! I think a great roast dinner has to be served with the best roast potatoes and the best vegetables. I also think…

Why is baking so addictive?

I don’t know what it is but I will find any excuse to bake. I will happily admit that I am not the best baker in town but I like to give it a good go. I am guilty of changing recipes based on what I have in the house, which doesn’t always go my…

The Comforts of Baking

I have to admit it, I have the baking bug. If everything I wanted to make wasn’t made from butter, cream or sugar, I would most likely bake everyday. But then again if I did this, baking wouldn’t be such a treat. The nation has gone baking mad, with the rising popularity of The Great…

Why not make your own Granola bar?

Ok so I don’t know about you but I am always hungry. I get hungry half an hour after a meal and I have no idea why. But I can’t keep eating! So I decided to make my own granola bar to give me some energy and keep me going. These are made with oats,…
