Whilst watching The Food Network I came across this ‘supposedly’ easy recipeĀ using puff pastry and I knew I had to give it a go. Believe me the end result was without a doubt, damn tasty but they lacked a whole … Continue reading »

Forgive, Forget and Feast your Face off.

Now then. What a bugger I have been completely neglecting my blossoming wee blog. I have enough excuses to fill up my wine glasses but I’ll leave you with the most important one- at this time of year it’s imperative you focus on those closest to you and that’s how my last few weeks have … Continue reading »

Bringing Home The Dough….

I recently read in a magazine that men are attracted to women who smell like (wait for it…) doughnuts. Now to clarify, I’m not one to be taken in by articles in magazines, I generally buy them for fashion purposes but that struck me as something fairly interesting.

Order Some Oreos?

I’m particularly interested in trying to configure desserts to make ultimate delights. After being lucky enough to stumble on my new go-to brownie recipe, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to inject some new and equally exciting flavour to the mix. A quick poke around the cupboard reduced me to just one option. Not for lack … Continue reading »

Brilliant Beyond Belief Brownies

Glitter and Guy Fawkes’

While the days get colder and the nights get darker it makes so much sense to huddle around a blazing inferno while admiring a spectrum of explosions light up the sky. What better way to celebrate than with toasted marshmallows, lashings of glitter and rainbow sprinkles? So that’s exactly what I did. Chocolate cupcakes topped … Continue reading »

All Hallow’s Eve

Winter is my most favoured of the seasons. Not exclusively due to the ease of hiding the extra layer that comes with cooking treats all year long. It’s mostly because it comes complete with all my most loved of the vacays: Halloween, Bonfire Night, Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Each allow me the excuse to … Continue reading »

My Baking Adventure…

I’ve decided to embark upon a food journey. I’m fairly aware it’s going to take time, money, energy and a whole lot of exercise to keep me from stepping up some 4 or 5 sizes.
