My brother L lives overseas (you can read about last time he visited here). This time, he arrived at 6.30am on a Saturday morning for a one week visit. Mum & dad offered to do the airport pick up and while I wasn’t really up for a 6am start, I offered to host a quick […]

A while ago, I blogged about some 36 hour chocolate chip cookies that I considered to be the best  I’d ever made. It was therefore quite surprising to come across a comment from David Lebovitz in his book Ready for dessert where he mentioned the 36 hour cookie and that he thought his recipe for chocolate chip cookies was superior.

     It’s fair to say that I am easily led. Particularly when it comes to sweet treats. After reading about chocolate and peanut delights on wheres the beef? and cake mistress, it was inevitable I would make a batch for myself. I decided to make these for my friend M and her little boy, J […]

At the moment, it seems like a huge number of my friends are getting engaged and married. In this vein, two weekends in a row I was asked by friends to make cupcakes for their wedding related festivities, firstly, for the kitchen tea of Z and secondly, for A’s engagement party. My friend B came […]

  I understand that not everyone likes banana. I encourage those people to stop reading now (yes, I mean you S & P). For the banana lovers, this recipe is so easy and tasty that it is absolutely ridiculous. I read about it ages ago on ‘where’s the beef’ (here for the regular version,  here […]

      So last week, Mr M and I babysat our niece and nephew, H & L. We live in a pretty small house so we find that we need activities to keep the kids interested and prevent them from climbing the walls. A small courtyard only holds fascination for so long! Once again, we turned to cooking […]

So last weekend we had (another!) family birthday, this time, my nephew L’s 4th birthday. It seems I have spent a bit of time lately baking cakes for family (see Dad’s chocolate raspberry layer cake and H’s butterfly cake) but I was still very excited to make L’s cake. I think the absolutely key feature […]
