Carrot Cake Cupcakes

These are gorgeous and so simple. I recently made a batch for a friend’s birthday at work which fell on the day following Easter.

Super Simple Chicken Caesar

This is so simple and tasty and will stop you popping across the road to get a fancy, stupidly priced salad… that was my inspiration anyway. Great for a work lunch too! You will need – (serves two) 6 chicken drumsticks/thighs (depending how hungry you are) – they’re cheaper and more flavoursome than breast meat 1…

Rocky Road! A Must Make.

This recipe is barely a recipe because, let’s be honest, you can’t go far wrong when making Rocky Road. It’s more a reminder to make it. It’s so easy and really great to do with kids – you need very few ingredients, few utensils and you won’t get precious about the whisking not being done…

Roasted Butternut Squash and Feta Salad

I admit it, I’m not a salad eater. In fact, it’s taken me almost 24 years to not extract lettuce from a burger or a sandwich and now, today, I have made a gorgeous, leafy salad that is simple, tasty, healthy and doesn’t make me feel like I’m feeding on rabbit food. You will need –…

Most Scrumptious Brownies!

This is my go-to, fool proof recipe for indulgent, squidgy brownies! You can have them as they are, simple and delicious, with a cup of tea or milk on the side. Or, you can gently heat them up again and have warm brownies with ice cream. It’s so good that it ended up being my…
