Honey and Mustard Roast Ham

Ham. More than just a sandwich filler. I have recently become very conscious about meat quality.  We’ve significantly reduced our meat intake and we aim to eat much less but better quality meat and ham is definitely on that list.  I am often surprised how few pre-packaged hams are NOT pre-formed and or full of…

Bunny Vanilla Butter Biscuits

Crumbly, sweet and buttery. These biscuits are really easy to make and I use them as my basic biscuit recipe and tweak as needed for the different seasons and occasions! You can let the dough rest in the fridge for 30 mins to a couple of days or even make a double batch and freeze…

Roast Pork & Apples, Crackling & Cider Gravy

As the nights draw in and the temperature drops, our little family craves hearty meaty dinners – so they’re extremely pleased that Sunday roasts are back on the menu! This giant juicy roast was just the ticket a few weekends ago; bit windy, bit rainy and bit colder than we have been used to over…

Sweet French Crepes

Proper homemade, fresh, thin and sweet french crepes are unbeatable. So much so, I have been known to eat quite a few in a row and will happily whip some up instead of a dinner! A french crepe, to me, must be freshly made, thin and I like them sweet! My default topping is pretty…

Allotment Veg, Sausage & Feta Tray Bake

It’s that time of the year (July) where allotment keepers really start to reap the rewards of all the hard graft – sometimes, and dare I moan, too many rewards! If like me you have a habit of planting far too many squash and courgette plants you’ll soon learn to incorporate them into every meal……

Coconut & Almond Granola

Crunchy, sweet, vaguely healthy and most importantly currant free!! This granola is easy to make, low in refined sugars and pretty versatile – lets just say this makes it to more meals than just breakfast! If there is anything you need to know about me when it comes to food is that I hate currants…

Lemon Curd Filled Cupcakes

Its no secret that citrus flavours are my favourite, and not too long ago I had a ‘thing’ for lemon curd- in that I HAD to find ways to put it in anything and everything! I was also having a thing for baking… and well voila! These are more like a traditional British fairy cake…

Breakfast Baked Eggs

Eggs are an obvious and pretty good choice for breakfast, but once you’ve fried, poached, scrambled and boiled they can get quite boring! Ideal for a leisurely breakfast or brunch, these smokey bakes eggs will really hit the spot. Serve with your favourite toasted crusty bread dipped into a lovely runny yolk! Because you are…

Proper Zesty Lemon and Lime Loaf

Ahhh lemon drizzle a firm favourite of mine. I LOVE citrus flavours, especially in baking, and over time my lemon drizzle bakes have become zestier and zestier. With the addition of extra lemon zest, lemon juice and lime this treat will really wake you up, so its ideal for elevenses with a lovely cup of…yup…
