Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Pie

Hi friends! You’re probably wondering what’s going on right now, seeing as we’re right in the middle of an apple fest & this pumpkin pie has exactly 0 apples in it. Well, I thought we needed a break from the apple fest, just this once. 

The Rainbow Cake That Never Was

The Rainbow Cake That Never Was

You guys, I tried. I tried so damn hard to make a nice rainbow cake for us. I got up early on my day off, I bought all the ingredients, I bought a new candy thermometer for the perfect meringue frosting, I (somehow) remained patient 

The Art of Rambling

The Art of Rambling

So it turns out that I’ve been a little all over the place for the last few months. You know when you’re up one second & down the next? Yep, that’s me, a whole bowl full of crazy. It’s kind of unfortunate. & it pretty 

Ham & Gruyère Breakfast Rolls

Ham & Gruyère Breakfast Rolls

Why are we always drawn to the things that are wrong for us? Or why do we always do the exact thing someone has just told us not to do? It’s like when you tell little children not to play with super-glue because it’s dangerous.

So, did everyone enjoy Banana Week while I was away? I did, & I’ll be enjoying it for a good while longer, seeing as most of the things I baked are sitting patiently in the freezer for their time to shine. Seeing as the last week 

Banana, Pecan & Nutella Swirled Cake Bars

Banana, Pecan & Nutella Swirled Cake Bars

Don’t you just love pecans? Pecans are by far one of the most better tasting nuts. Which is good, but in some ways it’s also a pain. For example, have you ever noticed that supermarkets are almost always out of bags of pecans? Seriously, finding

Welcome to Day 3 of Banana Week! Before we begin I feel I have to inform you, this one’s a good one. In order to keep things interesting this week, I had to make sure I had some variety, right? So on Day 1 we 

Lemon & Lime Curd

Lemon & Lime Curd

You know those days when things just work out? For instance: when Julie Powell magically had all the ingredients for Julia Child’s ‘Potage Parmentier’ & thus started her baking blog. Well, I happened to have lemons that needed to be used up, as well as 

Blueberry & White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Blueberry & White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

The last few days have been pretty awesome for me: I got my first exam over & done with (only three more left until summer starts!), the weather here has been amazing, & don’t get me started about the amazing deal that I got on 

Chicken Taquitos

Chicken Taquitos

Part two of my Mexican feast comes in the form of these delicious Chicken Taquitos. They’re packed full of shredded chicken, cheesy goodness, pineapple chunks, & BBQ sauce. Okay, so the BBQ sauce makes it kind of more Tex-Mex than Mexican, but I doubt you’ll 

Homemade Cinnamon Bread

Homemade Cinnamon Bread

Okay, so I have a cinnamon obsession. I never really noticed how much cinnamon I use every single day until I started blogging. Not a day goes by that I don’t have cinnamon, I just add it to everything! This Homemade Cinnamon Bread is slightly 

Wine & Cheese Grilled Cheese

Wine & Cheese Grilled Cheese

I’m a big fan of toasted cheese sandwiches, so much so that some of my friends just expect to be fed them when they come to visit. What’s not to love? They’re oozing with cheese, they’re warm & comforting, they’re just the perfect go to 

Banana & Chocolate Chip Baked French Toast

Banana & Chocolate Chip Baked French Toast

Sometimes, very rarely, there are things that I feel are worth sacrificing sleep for. Actually, I only really feel that way about travel. Well not anymore. This morning when my alarm went off at 6am I was beginning to question my sanity. Is it really 

Zucchini Spice Bread

Zucchini Spice Bread

I know what you’re thinking. Zucchini (or courgette) in bread!? Why would someone ruin a perfectly good bread by adding green vegetables into it? Until only a few hours ago, I used to think the same. This whole baking excursion came about when I found 

Passion Fruit Cordial

Passion Fruit Cordial

I’ve always had a kind of love-hate relationship with passion fruit. The slimy insides with crunchy pips were too much for my younger self to handle. Now that I’m a mature grown-up things have changed. I love passion fruit. I love the colour of the 

Nutella Stuffed Banana Cookies

Nutella Stuffed Banana Cookies

Can we all just take a moment to admire that title? Possibly have a moment of silence while we imagine the pure perfection of the chocolatey Nutella stuffing bursting out of the cookie & coating your entire mouth. Well, you guys have to imagine, but 

Banana Orange Bread

Banana Orange Bread

Apparently we buy too much bananas in my house. There always seems to be bananas that get too icky & black to be eaten. The result? New experiments with banana bread! I enjoy it (obviously), but I think my family wish I’d just start making 

Raspberry Spiced Muffins with a Crumb Topping

Raspberry Spiced Muffins with a Crumb Topping

Simply put, I love cinnamon. I’ll try cinnamon in practically anything – porridge, banana bread, bolognese, rice, you name it. So the other day when I was browsing around Damn Delicious & found the recipe for these Raspberry Spiced Muffins, I just couldn’t let it go. I had to
