No Knead Seeded Spelt Bread

To be a successful baker we must be mindful, fully focused on the task in hand, ignoring all other distractions. We need to approach the recipe with a ‘beginners mind’ without assuming things will go totally to plan. Many variables can affect the outcome of a recipe, you may be using a new oven therefore…

Tear & Share Garlic & Herb Loaf

It’s bread week on the Great British Bake Off – which just so happens to be my favourite week. In a double twist of fate the stars have aligned for me this week as my husband who won’t watch the bake off, also happens to be out for the evening, so I’ll actually get to…

Bacon, Sausage & Egg Breakfast Rolls

Made with only a handful of ingredients these delicious breakfast rolls are sure to become your new favourite brunch food! I first made these rolls a couple of years ago, I’d been to a restaurant who had the most delicious bread rolls studded with crispy bacon and I’d fallen in love at first bite. I’d…

Roasted Tomato & Basil Soup

You may think it’s strange for me to be posting a recipe for tomato soup in the midst of the current heat wave but the truth is I really love soup! No matter the weather, even when it’s boiling hot, I can still manage a steaming bowl of soup for lunch. Plus now is actually the…

Spiced Indian Chicken & Rainbow Veg Traybake with Creamy Raita 

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll have noticed that I’m rather partial to this traybake style of cooking, especially during the week. Not only does cooking everything together on one tray really cut down on the washing up (of which i’m not a fan, who is) but I love that all the vegetables really…

Big Batch Italian Vegetable & Turkey Stew

Here’s another of my ‘Good Mood Food’ recipes to help you hit your 5-a-day. This recipe makes a big old batch of stew that actually gets tastier as the week commences, it will keep in the fridge for 4-5 days and can be frozen too so it’s a brilliant recipe to keep you in lunches…

Red Velvet & Vanilla Baked Cheesecake Wedding Cake

Lots of people told me I was crazy for making my own wedding cake…but then again lots of people say lots of things, so I ignored them and did it anyway! The reason it was so important to me was not because I am a control freak who wanted to take over everything (although I…

Almond Bakewell Emoji Cupcakes

Feelings of embarrassment stay with you for hours and hours, your feelings are easily hurt and negative comments will go round in your mind for days after they were hastily…

Homemade Burgers & Garlic Butter Buns

Burgers are great when feeding a crowd, you can ask people to customise their burgers as they please, try adding extras like crispy bacon, sliced avocado, sautéed mushrooms or a fried egg. It’s a really fun recipe for a Friday or Saturday night, you can prep all the toppings and the patties then cook to…

Chocolate, Strawberry & Vanilla Drippy Cake

I love making birthday cakes. For me the enjoyment is twofold, firstly the pleasure gained from making the cake, which if you take it slowly and tackle it piece by piece can be also very therapeutic and relaxing. Secondly the gratification that comes from seeing how happy you’ve made someone else. It would take the…
