Easter Egg Friands

Happy Easter! Sorry to be so tardy with this Easter recipe but I’ve only just come round from a chocolate coma. Plus our Game Of Thrones Season 5 Box Set just arrived so….’nuff said. This isn’t so much a recipe as it is a fabulous decorating hack. For an easy Easter treat simply bake up… [Continue Reading]

Banana Brownies

Hello lovely people! I do hope you’ve had a restful Sunday. We are couch-ridden as we’ve gorged on roast lamb with all the trimmings and these rather splendid Banana Brownies. This feast was shared with some old college friends, Mark and Little Ed ( so-called as Mr Love is known as Big Ed ) –… [Continue Reading]

Blueberry Blondies

As you can see from my ‘picture’ on the blog I am a blonde… not a completely natural one but I do seem to possess quite a lot of the typical blonde personality traits. The other day at work I was taking pictures of samples with my phone when I said to my colleague ”… [Continue Reading]

How to brighten up a miserable ( seriously! this is August FFS ) British morning? With cake of course! preferably dipped in eggy mix and fried. Then slather in maple syrup and adorn with yogurt and berries at your leisure. I always used to hate mornings. I’d shoehorn myself out of bed as late as… [Continue Reading]


Hello! Oh it’s been a while… my last post was waaaaay back in drizzly old February and here we are in…er… drizzly August ( cue Mr Love muttering about the bloody awful crappy British weather ).

Marmelade & Almond Loaf Cake

Hello lovely, how are you? How am I? Well if I’m honest I’m feeling a little out of step. It seems everyone I know is either spiralizing all their veg, making kale smoothies in their shiny new Nutribullet or whipping up some of some Ella’s sweet potato ‘brownies’ ( blurgh…mashed up sweet potato, dates and… [Continue Reading]


Ahhh L’amour, L’amour… Its February already and Valentines Day is upon us! This year I decided to make a luscious Peppermint Chocolate cake for my beloved Mr Love. We have been together for 15 years and unbelievably we still really like each other. It gets considerably harder to be romantic and spontaneous as the years… [Continue Reading]
