Vegan pumpkin chocolate chip cookies - easy, chewy cookies that are full of pumpkin spice flavour and totally vegan too!

This weekend I did something that I almost never do – I had the weekend off. No work, no social media, no thinking about the blog (well, that last one is a bit of a lie, it is pretty much impossible to stop thinking about it altogether). Instead we went out for dinner, went to a gig (Eluveitie, an awesome folk metal band, in case you were interested) and did some shopping. I even had time to get stuck in to Book Of Dust by Philip Pullman which I had been eagerly awaiting and am thoroughly enjoying thus far. (more…)

My Favourite Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Easy to make chewy chocolate chip cookies.

I know that the internet really doesn’t need another recipe for chocolate chip cookies; I am sharing this purely so that I have my recipe neatly written up, rather than having to follow my scribbled recipe on a scrap of paper as I had been doing up until now. Nevertheless, they are very good cookies and are definitely worth adding to your repertoire. (more…)

Manuka honey coconut ice cream sandwiches - rich, creamy, dairy-free manuka honey and coconut ice cream sanwiched between dairy-free honey oatmeal raisin cookies.

Can you believe that until I made these manuka honey coconut ice cream sandwiches I hadn’t had an ice cream sandwich since I was about 13 years old?! That’s nearly twenty years – unacceptable! I’m not sure why, I guess they just haven’t really been on my radar; which is a shame because after making these ones I was reminded of just how good they are, and how much fun they are to eat. I promise not to leave it so long this time before I make them again. (more…)

Valentine’s Day Linzer Biscuits (Cookies)

Valentine's Day Linzer biscuits (cookies) - delicious heart shaped almond biscuits filled with raspberry jam.

Even though my fiance and I don’t bother celebrating Valentine’s Day, I will still take the opportunity to do some themed baking and use my neglected set of heart shaped biscuit cutters. Not that these Linzer biscuits should be solely reserved for Valentine’s Day of course, they are far too delicious for that! Obviously you don’t have to use a heart shaped cutter, as long as you have one larger cutter and a small one for the cut-out (it doesn’t even need to be the same shape) then you are sorted so they are suitable for any time of year.

Mini Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookie For Two

Mini nutella stuffed chocolate chunk skillet cookie for two - the perfect indulgent Valentines day dessert.

You wont catch me dead in a restaurant on Valentines day, as much as I enjoy eating out it really has to be the worst day of the year to do so – the overcrowding, the predictable, overpriced set menus, the air of awkward forced romance… No, a delicious meal at home with a bottle of wine (and/or some cocktails) is where it’s at; although what with having not one but two birthday parties to attend the day before Valentines, in all likelihood my partner and I will both be too tired and hungover to want to cook… but if anyone happens to want to come cook for us then this mini nutella stuffed chocolate chunk skillet cookie is what I want for dessert.

Slow Cooker Chocolate Caramel Ginger Cheesecake & A Giveaway

Slow cooker chocolate caramel ginger baked cheesecake - Domestic GothessI have only recently discovered the joys of a slow cooker – the ability to just throw everything into a pot, abandon it and come back hours later to a delicious meal. Slow cookers aren’t just good for meat and stews though, you can cook a lot of things in there that you maybe wouldn’t think to; things like brownies, macaroni cheese, porridge, steamed puddings and cheesecake….

Chocolate Dipped Lime Viennese Finger Biscuits

Chocolate dipped lime viennese finger biscuitsViennese biscuits have to be one of my absolute favourites, they are incredibly delicate and buttery, with an extremely short texture which just melts in the mouth; and dipping them in chocolate just takes them to another level of deliciousness. They can be piped into pretty shapes, and on top of all that they are super quick and easy to make. (more…)
