Lemon Meringue Pie

It’s British Pie Week and I am here for it. Is there anything more comforting than a pie? There is something very special about pulling a hand made pie out of the oven, whether sweet or savoury, it’s simply joyous. I love a savoury pie, from the classic chicken and mushroom or my recent vegetarian…

Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls

Happy Halloween everyone! Now although this is not exactly a spooky Halloween post, it’s inspired by the flavours that everyone is enjoying at the moment. Isn’t Autumn just beautiful? Look at these gorgeous leaves we found around our house. I just love the colours. What is Pumpkin Spice? I started to see pumpkin spice everywhere…

Birthday Cake!

Did somebody say cake? It was my daughters 2nd birthday yesterday. Two years have flown past. I know everybody says they grow up quick but gosh I didn’t realise it was this quick. My little one is now the boss of the house. From the moment we wake up it’s all go, hopping from one…

Banana and Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love to bake but sometimes I think my waistline could do without it. There’s nothing wrong with a little cake, but if I can make it a little lighter I will. I’m not a huge fan of over complicated recipes that ask for strange ingredients to make it healthier. Also I’m a little bored…

Coconut, Raspberry and Hazelnut Brownies

I absolutely love to bake. There’s something very special about mixing a few ingredients, popping it in the oven and seeing it transform into something warm and delicious. I used to bake a lot but recently struggle to find the time to do so. I have been attending lots of weddings and have been eating…

Gingerbread Stars

It’s Christmas! I love this time of year because for me it means lots of yummy food, seeing friends and family and ending the year on a high. I love to bake at this time of year (or any time of year to be fair) and this weekend was gingerbread time. After making a huge…

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…
