Recipes // The one with the raspberry and almond cake

Most of the things I am baking and cooking at the moment have been from stuff I’ve grown at the allotment so either courgettes or courgettes 🙂 But we’ve now moved into raspberry season and I’m picking a decent sized bowlful every day. Tom is eating a few with his breakfast every day but thereContinue reading “Recipes // The one with the raspberry and almond cake”

Recipes // The one with the banana and Nutella muffins

I resisted Nutella for years. My sister is hooked on the stuff and has it on bread all the time. I’m not really mad on chocolate so I thought “what’s the point”. Then at Christmas I made the Nutella pastry tree and now all I want to do it make things using the stuff! SoContinue reading “Recipes // The one with the banana and Nutella muffins”

Recipes // The one with the Lemon & Elderflower Cake

I haven’t baked a big cake in the longest time and have been desperate to use these flavours since I saw the Duke & Duchess of Sussex had it for their wedding cake last year. So in celebration of my husband’s last year of his 40s, I decide to make him one as he lovesContinue reading “Recipes // The one with the Lemon & Elderflower Cake”

Travel | 3 nights in Palm Springs (and a bonus night in Joshua Tree National Park)

When we booked to go to South California, I knew I had to visit Palm Springs. From all the photos I’d seen, it was somewhere I just knew we’d love and I wasn’t disappointed. It was one of the coolest, most chill places we’ve ever been and I can understand why anyone who goes thereContinue reading “Travel | 3 nights in Palm Springs (and a bonus night in Joshua Tree National Park)”

Travel // A mini guide to Santa Barbara (via Malibu)

Here’s the next installment from our trip to South California in February/March (installment one can be found here). Unfortunately it’s taken me a while to wake up as I’ve been so busy in the day job, plus I’ve been spending my weekends trying to sort the allotment out – more on that in future posts.Continue reading “Travel // A mini guide to Santa Barbara (via Malibu)”

Makes // The one with the spring wreath

I’ve never made a spring wreath before so when I saw that the lovely Louise (who owns Wild Frost in Ramsey) was running a workshop to make one, I couldn’t sign up quick enough. I’ve done my Christmas wreath with her the last few years so I know how good the sessions are already! AsContinue reading “Makes // The one with the spring wreath”

Travel // The one with the four days in Los Angeles

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know we’ve just come back from the most amazing trip around South California! I’ve had a few people ask me if I’ll write up about the trip but as we visited so many places and did so much, I decided to divide it up into a few posts,Continue reading “Travel // The one with the four days in Los Angeles”

Recipes // The one with the Nutella pastry

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that this year we had our main Christmas dinner this year on Christmas Eve as we went to Geneva on Boxing Day and wanted a relaxed Christmas Day with leftovers to eat. For our main dinner I made Nigella’s fir tree Bundt cake which we had withContinue reading “Recipes // The one with the Nutella pastry”
