Jalapeno-cheddar biscuits

Isn’t it funny how certain foods can transport you back to the time and place where you first had them? I’m sure these american biscuits will always remind me of our road trips through the Great Smoky Mountains in our… Continue Reading →

Rhubarb and green tea loaf

  I couldn’t help myself. I have to squeeze in another rhubarb recipe before the season is over. The plant in my garden still seems to be building up its strength after a few years of neglect whilst we were… Continue Reading →

Mixed fruit pie

After so many years away I’d forgotten how erratic the weather during British springtime can be. It actually snowed on my birthday last week. Snow in April. In the (almost) South West of England. Crazy. Admittedly it was quite sleety… Continue Reading →

Beetroot and halloumi rosti

Elderflower Tom Collins

The other day I came across something new (to me) and exciting called a tiger lemon. If you’ve never seen one then it’s got green and yellow striped skin and it should have pale pink flesh. (The ones I bought… Continue Reading →

Coconut & cherry scones

Like all good Westcountry folk I certainly appreciate a good cream tea. A light, fluffy freshly baked scone, crisp on the outside and perhaps just a little warm on the inside is key. These cherry and coconut scones fit the… Continue Reading →

Rhubarb and rose fool

I love the simplicity of a fool. If you’ve got some cream in your fridge and almost any kind of fruit then you’re pretty much there as far as ingredients go. It’s very much a fuss-free dessert. But just because… Continue Reading →
