Bake With Me – Pumpkin Pie

Hi everyone! I actually started this post on Friday but then something came up and then something else came up and before I knew it, it was too late to bake anything. So here I am giving it another go. I guess I better get to it! I have had this specific type of post…

Halloween Cupcakes

HelloooOOOOooooo everyone! I hope that was sufficiently spooky. Halloween is right around the corner now so I thought it’s very appropriate to write about something suitably themed. Cupcakes! But not just your ordinary everyday cupcakes. SPOOKY ones. Well, mostly just silly actually. I have made two lots of Halloween themed cupcakes this year. Hmm, I…

Super Simple Salted Caramel Bread

Hi everyone! Hope you’ve all had a great weekend so far, doing something that you enjoy – maybe some of you have even been baking? No? Just me? Nah, I don’t believe that for a minute. I know that some of you reading this enjoy baking as much as I do (and more) so I’d…

Coconut + Cranberry Cookies

It’s been aaaaages since I last shared any of my recipes with you, so I thought it’s about time I do just that. Last night I baked some cookies and just on the off chance that they may turn out delicious, I did my best to document the process. It wasn’t without a few bumps along the…

Rice Krispies Easter Eggs

As Easter’s only around the corner now I’d love to share one of my little Easter treats recipe with you lovely people. I don’t actually really celebrate it myself, it’s more just about the cute bunnies, decorating eggs and having egg tapping contests. Eggs. What a weird word. Anyway, for some reason I have a couple of…

Festive Baking – Gingerbreads

There’s no way around gingerbreads during Christmas time. The smell of freshly baked spicy biscuits wafting through the house is enough to make anyone feel festive. I love baking my own gingerbreads and then decorating them with royal icing. It is a bit more work than my previous recipe, so I’ve divided it into three…

Festive Baking – Xmas Tree Brownies

Is that title too long? I want there to be no mistake what this post is about – re-organising wardrobes! Just kidding. Today I finally made the Xmas tree brownies that I’ve been wanting to make for so long now. I used as many shortcuts as I could, to make this easier. Nobody’s got time…

This is the day of wonders

I finished a craft project! I actually finished one. Today. I accomplished the improbable, defeated all the odds, seized the day, peed in the wind… well maybe not the latter. But I did finish my crochet top. It’s quite lovely as well. I’ll see if I can maybe take some pictures in the daylight tomorrow. I…

Or not

Sometimes I open my laptop and ideas just come flooding in and it’s near enough impossible to pick one to write about. At other times however… well. At other times I write about how it’s been raining and how I’ve been working and am now enjoying my one day off before going back to work…

Spicy Coconut Soup

Yesterday I made soup. And I can say without a doubt it’s one of the nicest soups I’ve had. Ever. In addition to tasting absolutely lovely, it’s also really easy to make. And I’m talking like, the only thing you’ll need to put any effort into is chopping up the mushrooms. The rest is just…
