Apron making and cake testing.

There’s a group on Facebook, Food Feed, where people who like to take pictures of their food and share ideas and things with others, can do so without irritating everyone else. I’m a member, and another member Miss South, of the North/South food blog, was looking for some recipe testers. I volunteered, and the first […]

Rhubarb and Ginger Cake

I bought some Rhubarb the other day. It has since then been in the fridge. Staring at me. I was walking home from work yesterday though, and a sudden thought occurred to me, a previous well loved recipe is for apple cake, and surely rhubarb is pretty similar to apples when it comes to moisture content? […]

Bake Sale Bakes: Rhubarb and Apple Softies

Here is recipe number 2 from my bake sale goodies. I always try and make at least one vegan friendly thing when we have a bake sale, as one of my coworkers is vegan and so I like to make sure everyone can have some goodies… and of course donate to charity! So I made […]

Bake Sale Bakes: Almond and Chocolate Cupcakes

We love a good bake sale at my workplace, quite often it’s for the hospital charity, but this time around we had one for a charity that one of my colleagues was involved with while she did VSO in Indonesia. I made some “Rolo” Cupcakes like I have made before, and also some individual Bakewell […]

Chocolate Coconut “Fudge”

News: it’s still summer. It’s still hot. I still can’t really be bothered to cook anything. Still requiring appropriate summerwear, so I made another Sorbetto crossover variation, and updated the blog post with a bit more info on how I did it. It got positive comments! Both at work and at the pub: Successful I […]

A quick post about Cake.

Just a little wee post today. I had a little get together for my birthday yesterday, made a couple of quiches, had the obligatory cheese and pineapple on sticks, all that jazz. Mr M fired up the BBQ, so he could stand around it with other men and cook meat. The sun shone, the blue […]

Mocha Tarts

Man this week has been a busy one! So busy in fact that I have had no time to write this little post about something I made for last weekend! (The cushion post I scheduled a while back, but didn’t want to post it until after we had given them away!) It was Mr M’s […]

Ginger and Chocolate Chunk Brownies

Ok, I admit it. This is a bit of a cheat, and just a variation of the Chocolate Cherry Brownies I made the other week. But, a) they were awesome, b) I didn’t have any dried cherries, and c)….. we were having a bake sale at work again and I fancied making them again. Oh […]

Chocolate Cherry Brownies

Sometimes you crave chocolate. Or something more specific. Chocolate Brownies. I have tried a few recipes over the years, Ben and Jerry’s, random ones involving the use of golden syrup cake, I actually even have quite the soft spot for those Green’s box mixes (shhhh though, it’s a secret!) This one however, is the best. […]

Chocolate and Lime Meringue Pie

I re-discovered my jar of Sherbert Lemons this week. I bought them from the Warner Bros Studio Tour in May(!) and they have been sat in the spare room, forgotten and abandoned. Thankfully, the poor weather means they didn’t get too sticky, and so I have now almost finished them off! But they got me […]
