No Bake Rocky Road Fridge Cake Recipe

I have such a weakness for this rocky road. It’s ridiculously sweet and it’s fairly adaptable and it’s so, so delicious! Starbucks used to do a rocky road that was like this, and smothered in icing sugar, but they don’t seem to do it anymore. I’ve tried many other rocky roads, but they all use …

Barbecued Fruit Skewers With A Healthy Chocolate Sauce

We use coconut oil a lot, so much so that I buy it in large jars in bulk, but we’re always happy to try new and different brands. Some are in fact better than others.  I saw a competition from Foodies100/Vita Coco Coconut Oil, where we had to use the coconut oil in a barbecue recipe …

Passion Fruit (Granadilla) Slice

You know that playground chant, “my dad’s bigger than your dad!”, “well, my dad’s stronger than your dad!”, “well, my dad’s faster than your dad”… until blows come or the bell rings? That’s how I feel about passion fruit. Where I grew up in South Africa we didn’t have passion fruit, but granadilla, which is family …

If you Google Pig’s Ears, you’ll find a variety of different recipes for a variety of different end results, but when I think of Pig’s Ears, what comes to mind is otherwise known as Palmiers.  Or Elephant Ears or Pig’s Ears – just depends on what you know them as, I guess! Palmiers are a …

Home-Made Lavender Sugar Recipe

Lavender Sugar is one of those things I’ve always looked at and loved the idea of, but never really known what to do with. I’ve always liked crystallised lavender – it’s both pretty and tasty – but aside from medicinal or household use, I’ve never really known how to actually use lavender in food. Partly …

Soybean or Broad Bean Salad

I have a grave and lifelong dislike for beans, especially the tinned variety, but I have developed a love for soybeans, sometimes called soyabeans. Aside from planting some Edamame beans, I’ve discovered that Waitrose sell them in the pods, or anonymous ‘Soybeans’ for £1.50 a bag of 400g! This, in my apparently boring life, has …

Introducing the ‘Life Cycle’ Series For Growing Your Own {With Kids}

Over my years of growing food, I have learnt two things about the planting/seedling phases: You won’t remember what you planted, and need to write durable labels. If you’re planting with kids, what comes out of the ground might not be what you thought you were putting in. Last year I spent a lot of time trying …
