Baked Stuffed Peppers

There is no denying it that living on a diet of empty food cupboard concoctions and quickly grabbed meals from the supermarket while waiting to move house wasn’t the best for the waistline so I’ve banned baking recently. However unpacking all my cookbooks has brought some gems out that had laid in dusty storage for …

Animal Bread

This summer holiday I ran a bread making workshop for children(age 4-11) where we made pizza and shaped rolls. Last year on my summer cookery club we made both focaccia and pizza so most of the pupils attending this year knew the basics of kneading dough. ¬†Bread dough is such a fabulous medium for children …

Jammie Dodgers & Biscuit Tins

Biscuits are wonderful from the spicy speculoo to the melt-in-the-mouth Cherry Bakewell biscuit. I’ll also never say no to gaudy pink wafer.

Shiny Disco Balls (aka Rum Truffles)

On Monday I was left with the quandary of what to do with left over cake trimmings, though to be honest left over cake in this house is a rare sight. As a child I had a fondness for Rum Truffles. The best ones being from a local bakery called Mellors. These rum truffles were …

Baked Jam Doughnuts

Baked jam doughnuts

Next week I’m running a week-long Cookery School for 6-11 year olds and for the last week I’ve been busy finalising arrangements and testing recipes. Each day is themed and one of the days is America. We couldn’t do an American themed day without making doughnuts and the fact I have a slight fear of …

What shall we cook today? Chocolate Salami

Little Helpers

As I don’t have children of my own I’m very lucky to have a couple of Little Helpers that help me road test recipes, ingredients and cookery equipment geared towards children. Back in November they helped me try some ingredients to make cupcakes. A few weeks back they came for a whole day and we …
