Raw Chocolate Mousse

Raw Chocolate Mousse

‘Raw chocolate mousse!’ they exclaimed…’Well, what in God’s name is that?…what is that?’ What is it indeed! It would seem that there is an ‘on trend’ fashion right now, with foods that are ‘as they come,’ from the ground, fresh and unhampered with. Fresh foods are something that I think a lot of us steer well clear...
Pancake Day

Pancake Day

More often than not, do you get back home from work, thinking  ’Same shit, different day!’? Well, I do..but sometimes it just takes a bit of positive thinking and creativity to relaise that work doesn’t have to rule our lives and that, despite the fact many of us might be running around all day, or alternatively going...

  Sticky Toffee Coffee Cupcakes…well, if that ain’t your cup o’ tea, then at least you must admit, it rolls off the tongue pretty well?! I thought of these as I reminisced over the sticky toffee pudding that I used to frequently make, until I reaslised that it was so good that I could never...
Brownies

Brownies

Brownies brownies BROWNIES! Oh, where do I begin? Aren’t they wonderful? The crunchy outside, the gooey inside – the lightness offset by the denseness…they are good for elevensies, awesome for tea, a delight for pudding and…dare I say it? Quite edible for the morning after too! They are scrumptious and they never grow boring. Well,...

Chocolate Orange Tart with Twist

This is a combination of a chcolate tart recipe I have known for sometime, and a twist of my own imagination! I feel that it is one that some might shun, for the flavours are kinda out there….but they are flavours that go well together and I must say, I am a great advocate for...
Easy Yoghurt Cake

Easy Yoghurt Cake

Last year I did a ski season, and I was told, in no uncertain terms, that a cake at altitude ain’t gonna work if it isn’t a yoghurt cake! Let’s not get technical, but it’s all to do with how high up you are and the way this alters the rising factor of your cake…Needless...

Raspberry, Rhubarb and Ginger Ice Cream

This ice cream is completely delicious! No, really. I made it and no sooner had it frozen, and the spoons were gathered for testing, than the entire tub was gone…and we followed suit the next day. Though Rhubarb and raspberries are not in season all year round, they can still be found in markets and...
