It seems I keep reading about chocolate chip cookies – David Lebovitz had a recipe for salted butter chocolate chip cookies and Tartelette had one for 36 hour gluten-free cookies. A few clicks later and I was suddenly reading an article from The New York Times on the quest for the perfect chocolate chip cookie. According […]

July is a time full of family birthdays, with Mr M, my mother then my sister-in-law, C all having birthdays in a row, with a week separating each. When we got together for my mum’s birthday, I naturally offered to do the cake baking, particularly as I was itching to test out my brand new […]

Up until recently, I had never heard of whoopie pies. However, suddenly the damned things were everywhere on the blog front and even the New York Times explained that whoopie pies are ‘having their moment‘. So what is it?

So I have been intrigued about red velvet cake for a little while now. In my online trawling I kept coming across artful photographs of this bright red layer cake with white frosting. Some mid afternoon browsing of Sugadeux’s website turned my mild interest into a fully fledged craving. As always, the issue for me is the wheat-free factor, […]

We recently had a query from Caz, asking about our favourite recipes for quinoa (pronounced keen-wah). As I am wheat-free, I eat a bit of quinoa as an alternative to other grains. However, quinoa actually isn’t a grain, rather it is a seed originally from the Andes in South America. Quinoa is one of those […]

On the weekend I went to a first birthday party (Happy Birthday Harry!!) and thought I would make something for the kids to enjoy. These muffins are an old standby from Nigella Lawson’s How to Be a Domestic Goddess, improved (in my opinion) by the addition of chocolate chips and made with spelt flour. I […]

A month or so ago I had an irrational and intense craving for dolce de leche, the sweet, thick, Spanish caramel. My googling informed me that dolce de leche can be made by heating a can of sweetened condensed milk in boiling water. The instructions seemed to vary – prick the can, don’t prick the […]
