Pumpkin seed pesto

Have you carved a pumpkin for Halloween? Did you toss away the seeds? I hope not, those babies are delicious roasted and hulled. They’re also a delicious (and cheaper) alternative to pine nuts in pesto. Pesto isn’t just for pasta… Continue Reading →

Cherry and mascarpone pasties

I think this post might be my biggest tribute to my Grandmas baking yet. She was a pretty decent cook, although she mostly stuck to the ‘meat and two veg’ type recipes of her era, but my goodness was she… Continue Reading →

Lemon and eldeflower cupcakes

I haven’t baked cupcakes in forever. I’m not sure if it’s because they went out of style a little bit or because I’m a pretty greedy person and I’d rather bake one big cake that can be cut into generous… Continue Reading →

Spinach and paneer filo pie

I love most Indian food but I think that my absolute favourite dish is a paneer dosa. I love the crisp, delicate crepe and contrasting soft, fluffy spiced potato filling. I am not, however, any good at making them. The… Continue Reading →

Mini Egg cheesecakes

It appears that cheesecake isn’t quite indulgent enough for me, I’ve had to top it with rich chocolate ganache and cute little mini eggs too. I’ve wanted to do a recipe on here using mini eggs but I’ve always struggled… Continue Reading →

Baked smoked salmon parcels

I’m not really a fan of smoked salmon. I’m not really a fan of anything smoked (except maybe chili) and I’ve made these a couple of times but I think that the salmon I used the first time I made… Continue Reading →
