So, we now have an ice cream maker in the house….
You need to make these biscuits.
They are melt in the mouth delicious (literally). Continue reading
Roast potatoes are life.
They’re the best food in the whole wide world and I cannot even think about having Christmas (or any Sunday lunch or roast dinner) without them. I normally like to allow myself about 10 to eat (just me) so I would usually make a lot! I have to have these babies year round, whatever the weather, whatever the season. I genuinely love them that much. Continue reading
When it comes to Christmas, cranberries are always at the top of my shopping list.
I love fresh ones to make cranberry sauce and dried ones to bake with and, honestly, what better thing to make with them than cookies. Continue reading
The Chilcano is one of Peru’s best loved drinks, alongside the Pisco Sour of course.
Mint and dark chocolate has to be one of my favourite flavour combinations.
Plus, peppermint and chocolate is everyone’s Christmas favourite, right?!
I love to buy chocolate mint creams all year round, but I feel like in December I just doubly love to have them in the house. They make me feel all festive. This recipe came about because I wanted to make my own mint creams, but then I got cravings for tiffin and rocky road, which are pretty biscuit-y, so I thought why not combine them (but in a much simpler way)?

Granola is a great way to start the day. Like a crumbled up cookie for breakfast.
Dessert. Breakfast. Happy times. Continue reading
This is one of the yummiest traybakes of all time.
It’s officially summer and what better way to celebrate than with a cold, fruity glass of Pimm’s & Lemonade.
It’s a real thing. I promise.
I literally cannot go an Easter without eating this beautiful invention. In Peru, you cannot find hot cross buns (along with Cadbury’s creme eggs and mini eggs), which makes me unbelievably sad, so I have my mum either bring them to me in Lima when she comes to visit or freeze them until I go home later in the year. The problem is real. Continue reading
Wow, so this week is a week celebrating the strongest women we know. All of us.
Yes. Today is International Women’s Day, when we as women, alongside continuously campaigning for equality and rights, can be celebrated, in all our walks of life, whatever we choose to do. However, this Sunday in the UK is Mother’s Day, when we say thank you to those specific women in our lives, our amazing mums, for all the work they’ve done for us over the years. And I do think that this Bill Granger recipe lends itself to an amazing Mother’s Day pressie. It’s handmade with love from you to her, plus they’re damn delicious. And who doesn’t like cookies?
I actually cannot flip pancakes.
To be honest though, I haven’t ever really tried. I feel next year I might have to give it a go and hope it doesn’t end up on the floor!
As far as I am aware, Pancake Day was originally a Pagan celebration which then turned into a religious tradition (just like most of the holidays). Shrove Tuesday, or Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday), is the day before the 40 day fasting period known as Lent. On this day people would eat all of the rich foods left in their house. Different countries celebrate this tradition in different ways, some by having carnivals and others by eating certain dishes.
In England we eat pancakes.
