Cherry and Coconut Hot Cross Buns

While tradition states Hot Cross Buns should be eaten on Good Friday, many shops now sell these fruit studded buns all year round. I try to resist temptation and only buy/make them during the Easter period. Hot Cross Buns use one of my favourite types of dough – enriched dough. It’s silky texture is a pleasure to work …

London 2016 – The Foodie Tourist Edition

At Christmas it has been a bit of a tradition for Hubs & I to exchange foodie experiences as gifts. Previous ones include River Cottage, Seasoned and Northcote. Christmas 2015 I was rather shocked to open my gift from Hubs to find a reservation for Le Gavroche. Michel Roux Jr’s restaurant been on my hit …

Festive Afternoon Tea at Panoramic 34

I finally finished maternity leave in September to return to work part-time. To say life has been chaotic is an understatement.

Little Baker Picks – December ’15

  Big changes have happened since last time I wrote one of these types of posts. LB is now running and climbing everywhere, eating us out of house and home (unless it’s broccoli) and loves anything that is edible and or outdoors. Pop-in Coverall Bibs Since weaning we’ve been using the brilliant bargain Aldi bibs …

Review: Pool Green Kitchen meal box

Since LB arrived it has turned our life on its head. I remember as newlyweds not being phased by getting home at 5, 6ish then starting cooking dinner from scratch. Something like a lasagna. How. on. earth… We’re back in the swing of cooking from scratch but on weekdays gone are the long-winded recipes, in …

Make Eat Get Read Go – July ’15

July is a busy birthday month for us so unsurprisingly all of this month’s MEGRG centres around birthday celebrations. Make Sugarpaste rabbits When it comes to a first birthday cake you can’t go wrong with rabbits. The original plan was to fashion some out of marshmallows but last-minute ended up making them from good old …
