White Chocolate and Spiced Pumpkin Blondies for Halloween 🎃
White Chocolate and Spiced Pumpkin Blondies for Halloween 🎃

It’s the final of The Great British Bake Off tonight and what better way to celebrate than with a tray of delicious blondies! Actually I’ve been craving blondies all month – it’s just a happy accident that I’ve finally made them today! Always good to sneak a bit of veg into your bakes too, although…

Cardamom Easter biscuits with blood orange icing
Cardamom Easter biscuits with blood orange icing

I can’t remember the last time I made biscuits at home! When you’re struggling to find enough hours in the day anyway, it doesn’t really seem like an appropriate use of my time. But actually making these last week reminded me that not only are they extremely quick and easy to make, but it’s also…

Mothers Day Pavlova
Mothers Day Pavlova

There aren’t many things that make a mother’s eyes light up more than a great big plate homemade pavlova. (I’m obviously referring to myself here) And this beautiful recipe, with a golden sugar meringue, whipped yoghurt & cream cheese frosting and dripping with pretty pink rhubarb is no exception. The forced English rhubarb we get…

Festive Sugar Plums
Festive Sugar Plums

With the very festive new adaption of The Nutcracker out at the cinema this Christmas, I got thinking about The Sugar Plum Fairy and wondering what sugar plums actually are. It was always one of my favourite stories as a child but it’s only been this year that I’ve actually questioned it. The answer, according…

🎃 Pumpkin soup for Halloween 🎃
🎃 Pumpkin soup for Halloween 🎃

…and other winter days. Let’s assume that between changing nappies and feeding a baby (that seems to be in the midst of a rather serious growth spurt) that I’m not going to carve a pumpkin for Halloween this year. Instead I’m sharing one of my favourite soup recipes with you 🎃 It’s another one of…

Mums Foraged Fruit Crumble
Mums Foraged Fruit Crumble

Mums are great aren’t they. When your bumbling your way through the in a haze of baby sick, dirty laundry and unwashed hair, they just ping you a message reading, “Do you fancy coming over for a roast on Sunday?’ Yes, the answer is yes, thank you. Not only does she then go and cook…

A pretty recipe for Wild Apricity
A pretty recipe for Wild Apricity

I’ve genuinely had a craving for an upside-down cake for months now but lacked the inspiration (and time) to actually get the cake tins out of the cupboard and bake one. It was something to do with eating pineapples towards the end of pregnancy to bring on labour (it didn’t work) and me obviously associating…

Food Tour of New York
Food Tour of New York

When you go to New York for a week you kind of expect to come back carrying a few extra pounds (especially if you have a rapidly growing baby in your tummy), and last week we certainly embraced the New York food scene as best we could. While out there for work and visiting family,…

Easy fruit loaf
Easy fruit loaf

A craving for cake and a distinct lack of butter… Sunday evening at around 4:15 – just late enough for the shops to be shut and just early enough for me know that the sudden urge to bake that I’ve just had is not going away in a hurry. What cakes can I bake without…

English Winter Minestrone Soup
English Winter Minestrone Soup

Minestrone soup is one of those glorious dishes that can be completely different depending on what time of year you make it and so which vegetables are in season. Along with carrots, pretty much a given whatever the season, this version includes English potatoes, leeks and onions, beautiful Fenland celery which has a short season…

Pear and Blackberry pie
Pear and Blackberry pie

As winter arrives with its faithful companions; grey skies, muddy fields and icy windscreens, I find myself turning to the comfort of cosy food to get the feeling of warmth that I miss so much outside of summer. There’s nothing ground-breaking about this recipe (apart from the super easy pastry from Call-me-Cupcake), it’s more just a…

Birthday Parties and Cauliflower salads
Birthday Parties and Cauliflower salads

Cooking is still proving somewhat tricky in our current state of non-kitcheness. We’ve now been without basic household appliances such as a kitchen sink, oven, hob, washing machine and worktops for 5 months and a full year has passed since we saw most of our kitchenware. Our favourite bowls, our pour-over coffee maker, our spiralizer,…

Strawberry Sandwiches
Strawberry Sandwiches

You know that thing that people say about tomatoes in England. You know, that we get all the crappy tomatoes – that Italians keep all the best, most delicious tomatoes for themselves and that if we ever want to experience the taste of a proper tomato than we have to go to Italy and tussle…

Pimm’s and an Ode to Wimbledon
Pimm’s and an Ode to Wimbledon

Can you believe it’s almost July? Mid-summer really is my favourite time of year; festival season, BBQ season, pretty dresses and no socks season. I’d take all the wasps in Lincolnshire over the cold and wet winter months any day of the year. July also means another one of my favorite summer events – Wimbledon.…

Berry Full Smoothie
Berry Full Smoothie

I know we’re supposed to be stuffing our smoothies with as much spinach, kale and spirulina powder as possible these days, and I do usually opt for a greener smoothie when I make them. But, let’s be honest; no matter how much we try to convince ourselves that they “taste quite nice actually” they are…

Boozy banana and salt chocolate pancakes
Boozy banana and salt chocolate pancakes

Boozy poached banana and salted chocolate pancakes Some grown up pancakes for Shrove Tuesday. These are especially good if you’re giving up either alcohol or chocolate for lent. Or if your not giving anything up but just really like chocolate and banana pancakes. And rum. I’d never really thought about poaching a banana before until…

Pink Rhubarb, Pink Everything
Pink Rhubarb, Pink Everything

Pink Rhubarb, Pink Everything My current obsession with pink shows no sign of slowing down; if anything, it’s got mildly worse. And while I try to come up with new ways to convince Matt that it’s a good idea to paint at least one of the walls in the kitchen a rosy hue, I’ve had…

Homemade hot chocolate and spiced banana bread

Cheering up the chills of winter It’s November 29th. The winter sun is trying it’s damned hardest to warm us all up but there’s only so high a sun can reach during these months and it seems it’s barely lifted a leg over the gate post before it’s time to climb back down to the…

Pumpkin bread
Pumpkin bread

I think I can speak for most amatuer bakers when I say that pulling a beautiful loaf of homemade bread out the oven is one of the most satisfying feelings in baking life. Seeing that welcome crack of the crust along the top, then tapping its floury bottom and hearing the hollow thud of a…

Halloween cake
Halloween cake

It has been so long since I last baked a cake. So, so long. I guess it’s something to do with trying to eat healthy as I’m definitely one of those bakers that needs multiple tasters throughout the whole cooking process – raw eggs do not intimidate me as much as they perhaps should. And…
