Rocky Road

So Rocky Road. I’ve never made it before. It’s basically just the American name for Tiffin with added marshmallows. Unless I’ve done it horribly wrong. But, you know what? If I have, I’m going to do it again because it ...

Milk Chocolate and Cherry Brownies

These are my new favourites. I could eat them forever and thanks to the discovery of boxing on the Wii, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t gain a pound! Honestly, it’s killing me. You wouldn’t think 10 minutes of hitting a ...

Hunky Husband’s Lemon Tart

Hunky husband makes two different versions of the Lemon Tart. The first one he ever made me used a million egg yolks. This meant we also had to make meringue. Because no one likes waste. This version is a little ...

Moist Banana Bread

I make banana bread all the time. Partly because I’m one of those people that can’t eat a banana if it’s a bit green but can’t have a spot of brown on it either. Meaning they’re good for about 3 ...

Chocolate Fudge Loaf Cake

I can’t bake cakes. I’ve always been very clear about this. That is until I made the lemon drizzle cake. The lemon drizzle cake is so amazingly good. Several have been consumed since that first one. When I posted a ...

Chocolate and Cherry Tiffin

I’d sort of forgotten tiffin existed until recently. I had a friend at school that made gorgeous tiffin for us all and I loved it. Then I left school and somehow didn’t come across it for 10 years. I mean ...

The Best Ever Lemon Drizzle Cake

I can’t do cake. I’m not sure why but they just don’t seem to work. I’m good at bread and desserts. I like to think that I’m generally a very good cook. But I cannot make a cake. I’m told ...

Double Chocolate Mini Egg Cookies

Mini eggs are wonderful, aren’t they? I possibly like them even more than crème eggs. Maybe. I’m not sure. The Boy definitely does, they’re one of his absolute favourites. As with the crème egg, they’re not around for long so ...

Bakewell Flapjack Recipe

Today, when I was looking for something to bake, I was met with a few problems. No eggs for a start. We’ve been to a soft play (not as bad as it could have been) this morning, so could have ...

Awesome Creme Egg Brownies

Firstly, let me say, this post does contain affiliate links, but, it's all truth, and I really do use these products to make my creme egg brownies. I love a creme egg. I sort of hate how early they appear ...

Perfect Homemade Millionaire Shortbread

I’m generally not too fussed about shortbread. Jo brought me a tin of those little dog ones (an affiliate link) once, which were, frankly, incredible. But, normal, plain shortbread biscuits, don’t appeal to me. So, what can you do to make ...

Homemade Jammy Dodgers

For years, The Boy has claimed not to like jam. I do not know where he got this from. Then, for some reason, a few weeks ago he had a jammy dodger at school. We now have to buy them ...

Perfect American Pancakes

I love pancakes. The Boy didn’t when he was little, but does now. The girl is confused by them, she enjoys stabbing them with her fork but doesn't seem to want to put them in her mouth. So, basically, I've ...

Vanilla and Blueberry Cheesecake

We love cheesecake. I’ve never made a “baked” one. To be honest, I’m not entirely sure if I’ve eaten one either, how is It different? I mean I know it’s been baked but in terms of taste? What happens to ...

Ginger and Lime Cheesecake Recipe

The Smell of lime reminds me of cocktails. Which is always nice, but generally it’s not a flavour I love. I wanted to buy a lime, to make some salsa later in the week, to go with some halloumi and ...

Homemade Jammy Flapjacks

Flapjacks are one of those things that I absolutely love, but won’t have for years. Then I’ll for some reason have one, and end up eating 900 that week! In my humble opinion, the jam flapjack is the best. With ...
