A Tale of Two Biscuits: Spiced Christmas Cookies

I tried to make gingerbread, and this is what happened the first time I made it today: So, just like the Boy was when I told him I made gingerbread, you’ll be wondering what the hell that is. I don’t really make biscuits. And I was going half on remembering how I made gingerbread when […]

The Rum ‘n’ Coke Tropical Cake

Last night whilst waiting for the boy to get his butt to bed I was flicking through/salivating over the recipes in Matt Tebbutt’s ‘Guilty Pleasures: Your Favourite Sweet and Savoury Indulgences in 130 Easy Recipes’.  I had been thinking about doing something with a free fridge pack of pineapple I was given in a Morrison’s […]

Inspired by Nigella ‘Chop Chop Earl Grey Muffins’ (Batch Cooking my Work Breakfasts)

I decided to watch Saturday Kitchen Live today on BBC 1, a show I surprisingly don’t normally watch, and my watching it today has absolutely nothing to do with my crush on a certain TV chef. One of the segments of the show featured the widely known Nigella Lawson who was making Chai Breakfast Muffins. […]

Chocolate ‘Weetabix’ Brownies
