Rabbit 1st Birthday Cake

  How fast has the last year gone? 12 months ago I was welcoming LB to the blog and wondering how on earth us foodie selves would cope with a little one. Well here we are, we survived… Just. Some people take their little ones to a farm or zoo for their first birthday, we …

Working with Stork – Salted Caramel Paris Brest

Christmas Pudding Krispie Cakes

This Christmas is going to be very different for us.

This year 5-month-old LB will be joining us at the dinner …

Christmas Pudding Rum Truffles

Saturn (tomato & basil) rolls

Cottage cheese purchases are often on a healthy kick whim. It’s opened, spooned on a jacket spud then the rest of the pot risks being forgotten about at the back of the fridge. This recipe uses up this languishing pot and is perfect for a quick lunchtime bread as no yeast is required. As part of …

Carrot and Ginger Cakes

Ginger and Carrot Cakes with Ginger Cheesecake Icing

Don’t be too shocked. This is the first baking recipe I’ve featured on the blog for a while. I thought I owed you one. It took me until I was an adult to appreciate vegetables in cake. Pre 2001 I thought carrot cake was evil stuff. It’s now on the top list of cakes I …
