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 […]
It’s been a while since I posted a dessert recipe so here you go. Rhubarb and custard is a classic combination and I love cooking with rhubarb when it is in season. Himself is not a fan so I usually make these things and have to find someone to offload them on or I’d […]
Jaffa Cakes have always been a particular weakness of mine. When I was younger I could easily eat a whole packet in one go. Of course back then I could eat whatever I wanted and still be a size 8. How I wish I’d appreciated my teenage metabolism, now I just have to think of […]
