Edible Sparklers

Yesterday we went to see a fireworks display to celebrate Bonfire Night (which is actually today), so I made some fireworks themed snacks to take with us. These edible sparklers went down a treat! My boys absolutely loved them, and it made the wait for the fireworks display to start go quicker. These would also […] Read more…

Happy Hallowe’en! If you want to give your kids a little bit of a spooky treat for dinner tonight, why not serve them up some monster burgers? We had these the other weekend, as part of our Hallowe’en festivities. They are super easy to put together! For each monster burger just layer up the following […] Read more…

Salted Caramel Tart (GF)

So, usually I make pumpkin pie for our Hallowe’en party every year, but after seeing a great cake decor idea on the front cover of Tesco magazine last week, I decided to break with tradition and make a salted caramel tart instead. I used my own caramel recipe, rather than the Tesco one, because it’s […] Read more…

Chocolate Apples

We are having a wee Hallowe’en gathering this weekend, so Oskar and I have been busy planning what treats to serve up. He suggested toffee apples, but I’m not so keen on toffee or caramel apples as they are so terribly sticky and not great on the teeth. So we have compromised on chocolate apples, […] Read more…

Roast Sweet Potato & Carrot Soup

Have I mentioned before how much we love soup season? I just can’t stop blitzing any vegetables in sight in to soup. It’s cheap and it’s simple. The most easy and straight forward way is to just chop the veg and boil it straight away with some stock until soft, but for some extra flavour […] Read more…

All you need is some bread, afore mentioned peanut butter, a banana and some raisins. Slather a slice […] Read more…

Tropical Summer Porridge

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you may know we’re porridge addicts in our family. We love ourself a nice bowl of porridge all year round and with the unusually hot weather we’ve been having in Scotland, I’ve found myself returning to a porridge recipe I devised a couple of years ago […] Read more…

Sweet Treat: Peach-Quark Casserole (GF)

It’s Father’s Day this weekend, so I thought I would share a sweet treat recipe with you, perfect for either afternoon tea or as a dessert for dinner. The main ingredient is Quark – I remember when you couldn’t get this in the UK at all, then just the German discount supermarket sold it, now […] Read more…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

A wee while ago I shared a recipe for sugar free banana bread sweetened with coconut, perfect for an ‘in between’ healthy snack and a popular bake in our house. But some days, you just want something a little more decadent, so for those afternoon tea kind of moments there’s my chocolate chip banana bread. More of […] Read more…

Easy Salmon Kedgeree

I love eating fish and seafood. My husband and kids on the other hand aren’t too keen, unless it’s tinned tuna, though they do love salmon! So I thought I would try a salmon variation of kedgeree, which is a dish I really like but is traditionally made with smoked haddock that my three men wouldn’t […] Read more…
