No-Bake Treats

Speculaas-Spiced Christmas Granola (Oil Free)

Speculaas-Spiced Christmas Granola (Oil Free)

Granola is one of those things you quickly stop buying when you realise how simple and inexpensive it is to make your own. I’ve never been much of a breakfast person (unless it’s a Special Weekend Breakfast when pancakes or waffles play a part) so […]

Snow-Topped Festive Tiffin – A No-Bake Christmas Cake!

Snow-Topped Festive Tiffin – A No-Bake Christmas Cake!

I’m going to jump right in here and declare my new-found love of tiffin. I always thought this traybake treat was something other people made – people who couldn’t bake maybe – and was of the opinion that it was a bit rubbish as every […]

Grasshopper Ice-Cream Pie (Vegan)

Grasshopper Ice-Cream Pie (Vegan)

How’s your summer going? Has it been hot enough for you? I wasn’t around for The Famous Summer Of 1976 so I can’t recall a summer quite like this year’s other than 1995, which I remember reasonably well as my poor mother was very pregnant […]

Instant Vegan Condensed Milk // Vegan Basics

Instant Vegan Condensed Milk // Vegan Basics

Sweetened condensed milk is one of those naff ingredients that is actually pretty handy to have in the cupboard as the key ingredient for all kinds of tooth-rotting deliciousness such as caramel, no-churn ice cream, banoffee pie and fudge. Recipes like salted caramel millionaires – definitely one of […]

Key Lime Pie – Vegan + No Bake

Key Lime Pie – Vegan + No Bake

Ooooh limes! We love you so much. You smell of Mexican summers, gin and tonics and lime-scented shortbread biscuits from Miami (I just so happen to have a recipe for those here). When my husband went vegan back in January, I was fully expecting him […]

Mince Pie Ice Cream

Mince Pie Ice Cream

Ok so this isn’t really a recipe. It’s more of an idea. A really delicious, staggeringly simple idea! For when you’ve forgotten (!) to make a trifle or have simply run out of energy and are struggling to come up with a suitably festive dessert […]

Homemade Vegan Irish Cream

Homemade Vegan Irish Cream

This is an emergency post. I tried this idea out on a whim yesterday – and it is so ludicrously good and easy, I couldn’t wait to share it with you! I love Irish Cream. I really do. But in my quest to gradually eliminate […]

Toffee Apple Cheesecake (No Bake & Vegan)

Toffee Apple Cheesecake (No Bake & Vegan)

I haven’t posted in a while as life has presented us with the full spectrum of surprises recently – good, bad and complicated! Currently however we are simply enjoying lazy mornings and the general I-don’t-know-what-day-it-is-anymore haze of the summer holidays (although I use the term […]

Salted Caramel Millionaires

Salted Caramel Millionaires

There is something so completely perfect about a millionaire, and I’m not just talking about the George Clooney kind. These classic biscuity bars are so chewy, crumbly and chocolatey – everything you’d want in a sweet treat, really – and the perfect partner to a […]

Summer Holidays Week 3: No-Churn Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Summer Holidays Week 3: No-Churn Cookie Dough Ice Cream

It’s a universally accepted fact that children are programmed to love ice cream. Now that summer appears to have returned, this might be just the thing to keep the wee ones busy for a few hours. Prior to this, I last attempted to make ice […]

Summer Holidays Week 1: Cake Pops

Summer Holidays Week 1: Cake Pops

So the summer holidays have started and as we all know, boredom sets in within about a week. My little one misses nursery terribly – so do I for that matter! – and I’ve had to compile a long list of things to do, indoors […]

No-Bake Rice Crispy Marshmallow Cake

No-Bake Rice Crispy Marshmallow Cake

Creating the ridiculously delicious – and, unusually, totally vegetarian – Grasshopper Pie was probably my greatest achievement last summer. Since discovering just how easy it is to replace gelatine-filled marshmallows with vegetarian-friendly Marshmallow Fluff (and a bit of tweaking), I was then keen to replicate […]
