Pumpkin Pie With A Pecan Crust

Pumpkin Pie With A Pecan Crust

It’s that silly time of the year again when I start going a bit nuts for all things pumpkin, which we all know tastes of virtually nothing until we add those lovely spices and a pint of syrup – and we’ll overlook the fact that […]

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 […]

Icelandic ‘Happy Marriage’ Cake | Hjónabandssaela

Icelandic ‘Happy Marriage’ Cake | Hjónabandssaela

I’d been itching to try this recipe for ages. Look at the whimsical name! I was instantly intrigued. It’s a bit of a misnomer really though; it isn’t a cake at all, at least not in the traditional sense. It’s actually the perfect cross between […]

Creamy Coconut Rice Pudding – vegan // slow cooker

Creamy Coconut Rice Pudding – vegan // slow cooker

It’s nearly Christmas! How’s your December going so far? I know I say every year how much I enjoy the festive season but I really do. Twinkling fairy lights and the smell of cinnamon wafting through the air makes me feels so warm and cosy […]

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 […]

Apple Pandowdy

Apple Pandowdy

I know you’re already thinking “pardon?” I love finding a recipe I’ve never heard of before! I found the original version of this in my very old and battered American cookbook and was instantly intrigued, particularly as it’s egg free and therefore easily made vegan. […]

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 […]

Squidgy Margarita Cookie Pots (Vegan)

Squidgy Margarita Cookie Pots (Vegan)

Sometimes, things come together so easily it’s like the ye olde pudding gods are shining down and blessing you with good baking fortune. This was one of those times. I recently had some limes left over from making my husband’s annual birthday key lime pie, […]

Peach & Blueberry Shortbread Crumble

Peach & Blueberry Shortbread Crumble

I love a crumble! It’s such an easy pudding to whip up, and requires no particular forward planning. The fruit fillings vary depending on what’s left in the fridge, but I rarely stray far from my regular crumble topping, full of oats and seeds. (Check […]

Garfield’s Pumpkin Pie

Garfield’s Pumpkin Pie

I’m a winter girl at heart – no doubt something to do with both my birthday and Christmas falling in the same month – but I also love autumn. The turning of the leaves, the chilly morning air and the near-permanent whiff of cinnamon wafting […]

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 […]
