Cheddar and leek soda bread

I know that for the last couple of years (whilst I was living in the USA) I’ve offered you recipes for sweet treats to celebrate St Patrick’s day, but this year I thought that I might go down a more… Continue Reading →

Lime, thyme and elderflower meringue pie

I know what you’re thinking, ‘lemon meringue pie is a classic, you don’t need to mess around with it.’ But I say a change is as good as a rest so why not try something a little bit different? This… 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 →

I’ve said it many times but I’ll say it again…Christmas cake is not for me. Icing belongs in my food hell. I just can’t bear it. And the cake is just too rich for me, I’ll have a token slice… Continue Reading →

Lemongrass and coconut tart

Whilst we were living stateside I developed a tiny obsession with stopping at road-side diners on our numerous road trips for pie. I think I found something satisfyingly clich├ęd about it. One of the best pies I tried was a… Continue Reading →

Welsh rarebit scones

How tempting do these beauties look?! I think you’d have to have some seriously impressive will power to turn them down, especially toasted with a generous smear of butter melting into them. I might have to put writing this post… Continue Reading →
