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 …

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 …

Honey Dough Balls Recipe

It’s a Winnie the Pooh time of year again, which means pretty much any time is the time for a little something, so long as that something includes some honey! Knowing this, I made sure to stock up on honey this week, because come Winnie the Pooh Day, we’ll be having honey everything. For human children …

Hard Boiled Honey Sweets, AKA Honey Balls – Outlander #BookFood

There’s a passage in Dragonfly in Amber that always catches my attention when I read it: “We stayed locked together, not speaking, until my eye suddenly fell on the other small, yellowish lumps that Jamie had removed from his sporran. ‘What on earth are those things, Jamie?’ I asked, letting go of him long enough …

White Chocolate & Rosemary Biscotti

I love the unusual white chocolate and rosemary flavour combination. I actually don’t like white chocolate at all, so recommending this is high praise. I have loads of rosemary from my summer on the allotment, so I’m glad for something extra to use it on too. The sugar in this recipe is flexible. I normally make …

Rhubarb Lemonade

The weather is hot hot hot and there’s more of it to come – and there’s just a little bit of rhubarb season left, so still enough time to make this quick and very refreshing drink. It was from a Rhubarb Iced Tea recipe, but since I don’t have much affinity for tea, I changed …

Jellybean Fudge

Sometimes a reader will get in touch with a question about a recipe that didn’t work for them, and it always makes me really nervous, so much so that I have to make the recipe as soon as I can to just check it again, to make sure I didn’t leave anything out.  That happened …

Honey Cookies

It’s national Winnie The Pooh day on Monday the 18th of January and we love Winnie the Pooh in this house. We’ve visited the real 100 Acre Woods and we’ve had a Winnie The Pooh birthday party and my kids have been playing Pooh Sticks since they could stand up straight, so really it’s only obvious …

Six Minute Chocolate Puddings

In a life before my children, I used to host regular dinner parties, and Six Minute Chocolate Puddings were a go-to standard pudding for a number of reasons. First, it’s so easy to make. You mix all the ingredients together and set it aside, popping it in the oven for 6 minutes when you’re ready for …

Almond Biscuits With Fondant Icing

Cookies, or biscuits, if you will, are so synonymous with Christmas to me. My mom used to do a huge bake i the beginning of December somewhere, and I remember a lot of cookies through the month, always stored in old fashioned cake tins. That was always fun. I love this recipe because it’s a …
