I had one of those days at the weekend where you just don’t know what you are doing with yourself. I didn’t want to do any of the things that needed to be done round the house so instead I was just faffing about doing nothing at all. To pull myself out of the mood I decided to bake some cookies; and that ended up turning into a testing session to perfect my vegan chocolate chip cookies recipe. (more…)

These chocolate orange mousse pots are an insanely delicious dessert that doesn’t leave you feeling overly full as they are so light and airy. They would make a great dessert for something like a dinner party as they look as well as taste good, and they are make-ahead and can be kept in the fridge for a couple of days before you serve them.

I can’t believe that we are only a week away from Christmas; I still have so much work left to do and so many things that I want to bake and not enough time to do it all in! I made these chocolate gingerbread biscuits a while ago but haven’t had time to share them; seeing as we are so close to Christmas though I thought that I had better get them posted quick! (more…)

I’ve been having a lot of fun making and decorating Christmas biscuits this week. The decorating part is quite time consuming if you are trying to do it really neatly and you have a lot of biscuits to get through, but I find it quite relaxing and it is a nice way to while away a cold, wet afternoon.

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…)

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.
