Himself recently brought home a treat of mini chocolate cheesecakes with salted caramel from Bitesize. They were divine. I’m at home eating salads all day and he waltzes in, undoing all my smugness! It wasn’t enough to have a one off treat, I had to go making my own version.
It has been a while since I posted a sweet recipe. I wouldn’t want to give a false impression here, I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth but still find myself making desserts regularly. My oven is a bit temperamental so I try to not use it too much, even though I am making this […]

Strawberry season is in full swing here and I can’t get enough. I have them for breakfast, as a snack, even in salads, but where they really shine is in a good dessert with cream. At this time of year you don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen baking so a quick make […]
