Spring ‘Green’ soup recipe

Spring ‘Green’ soup recipe

I am trying to have soup once a week to help keep the food budget down. It is also a good excuse to come up with different soup recipes. With Spring here and the lovely spring greens in the shop I thought I would mix them with other goodies and fresh herbs to make a rather lovely fresh tasting Spring soup recipe. As with all soups this is the basic recipe. Nice swaps or additions would … Read entire article »

Blueberry and lemon drizzle cake

Blueberry and lemon drizzle cake

Lemon drizzle cake and blueberry muffins are both things that go down very well here. With lemon and blueberry being perfect partners I thought the mix of the two would be perfect and dare I say it, it was! This makes a good-sized loaf using a 2lb tin but it also freezes nicely so you can cut into slices and wrap in greaseproof paper then store either in a freezer bag or my preferred option in … Read entire article »

Coconut macaroon Squares

Coconut macaroon Squares

Coconut macaroon squares Any coconut fan will love these and I think they have a real retro feel about them. With Comic relief coming soon on March 15th, I thought this recipe would be perfect for you to make to sell.  Cherries and Comic relief go hand in hand when it comes to cake raising funds and I think the squares look so temping that asking for a £1 donation would be a bargain don’t you? To … Read entire article »

Blackberry & Apple Muffin Cake

Blackberry & Apple Muffin Cake

Blackberry and apple muffin cake with streusel topping This year blackberries here have been a bit of a wash out so what better way to use a couple of handfuls in, than in a cake. I quite often make muffins instead of cakes as being gluten free they are a bit more forgiving! For a change and extra treat I added a streusel topping which I have to confess sent this cake to another level!  This … Read entire article »

Oscar’s sandwich with Allinson bread and herbs

I am always up for a challenge so when Gemma asked if like to come up with a recipe using Allinson Bread and the herbs from the great herb garden offer I couldn’t say no. Firstly the herb garden kit arrived. I rather liked the box which is waterproofed so you don’t get a soggy kitchen window sill. It came with the compost, and three packets of seeds. Parsley, chives and basil. Good choice of seeds … Read entire article »

Nutella Cupcakes

Nutella Cupcakes

I am never really sure whether to call things cupcakes, muffins or fairy cakes. Cupcakes sounds a bit more fancy, fairy cakes a bit twee and muffins well they are just different aren’t they? I came up with this recipe at the weekend. Usually when adding cocoa to cake you minus that amount  from the flour. As you can see in the recipe I didn’t and it made with the addition of ground almonds a … Read entire article »
