Blueberry and black pepper corn muffins

Sometimes you want to be able to whip up a homemade sweet treat with the minimum amount of fuss. It’s nice to be able to sling a few ingredients into a bowl, give them a quick mix and be munching… Continue Reading →

Rhurbarb and ginger tart

This is a lovely seasonal twist on my recipe for apricot bourbon tart (you might have seen it in The Guardian). I love anything involving frangipane and I’m always striving to attain pastry perfection. My grandma made the best pastry… Continue Reading →

Caerphilly, honey and thyme scones

The first of March was St David’s Day, the patron saint of Wales. Whilst I will always feel more Cornish than anything else, technically I’m Welsh as that’s the country I was born in. The two places do have quite… Continue Reading →

Raspberry Whisky Sour

I actually created this cocktail to serve before our Burns Night supper but look at how pretty it is! It’s perfect for Valentines day too. I wouldn’t recommend using a really, really, peaty whisky in this but you should still… Continue Reading →

Ginger, gin and rhubarb panna cotta

Hooray for rhubarb season! I love it when these vibrant pink spears start to make an appearance. I’ve even got a couple poking through on the plant in my garden. They’re so cheery amidst all the gloom and grey of… Continue Reading →

Butternut squash and feta frittata

This tasty little vegetarian number makes a fairly regular appearance on our week night dinner menus. It’s a really quick and easy one pan wonder. It’s not limited to dinner time either, this is a great dish for brunch or… Continue Reading →
