Spiced Cranberry Biscuits

From the abundance of California restaurant reviews on this blog over the last month or so you may have realised that I’ve just got back from a little trip Stateside. As you can tell from my reviews I found some great places to eat and enjoyed lots of lovely food, but as lovely as it…

Raspberry Jam Slices

I have borrowed and slightly adapted this recipe from the March issue of Good Food magazine when I was baking up a pretty huge batch of baked goods for a farewell gift for my old office. I usually take in brownies or cookies, so I thought something sweeter, bright and colourful would make a nice…

Cranberry & Almond Rocky Road Crunch Bars

Okay, this one isn’t strictly a bake as it never actually goes in the oven, but it does sort of come under the cakey/biscuity tea time treat category so we’ll stick it on with the Sunday Bakes. This simple recipe is quick to assemble, easy to make and a real crowd pleaser. Simply mix all…

Winter Spiced Biscuits with Fresh Orange Glaze

It seems the weather has taken a dramatic turn for the worse and very suddenly we have been plunged into the cold depths of winter. I’ve been bulk buying wooly jumpers and planning what I’m going to give everyone for Christmas! I’ve also started thinking about all the yummy food that comes with the winter…

Fruity Choc Chip Oat Cookies

Having done a fair few indulgent bakes, this week I’ve decided to do a healthy cookie…. yes that’s right, I said healthy! Woohoo! And even better they’re really yummy and don’t taste like cardboard as a lot of healthy biscuits do. My Dad went mad for these and I had to ban him from the kitchen…

Peanut Butter Cookies

Happy Mothers’ Day! I hope you’re all having a lovely day treating your lovely Mums. I made breakfast and bought flowers for mine and then next week we’re off for afternoon tea with my sister, my Aunt and my cousin for a bit of a delayed celebration. Today’s Sunday Bake is a really easy one…

Chilli Chocolate Cookies

I’m a big fan of unusual flavour combinations, particularly when they work so well. If you’ve not tried chilli chocolate before I urge you to do so, it’s really good. So I’ve taken this idea and done it in cookie form! They’re not too hot they won’t blow your head off at all the chilli…

Ginger Shortbread

For this week’s Sunday Bake I’ve done a ginger shortbread. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like shortbread and I find it’s particularly good for dunking in tea! This one’s got a bit of a ginger twist. Ingredients 200g unsalted butter 100g caster sugar 260g plain flour 40g cornflour 1tsp ground ginger pinch of salt…

Festive Treats

To quote the legendary Slade……It’s CHRISTMAAASSS! It’s my absolute favourite time of year, it’s so magical and everything sparkles and I just love to get creative and cook up lots of indulgent goodies at Christmas time. This year I’ve decided to make cookie decorations to hang in the tree. I’ve seen a few different variations…
