Simple yet satisfying banana loaf. A great take on a somewhat classic tea cake. This recipe I make on a regular basis and freeze single serve portions to add as a lunchbox treat. An excellent recipe to use up any really ripe bananas you have on hand.
A walnut torte that is light and fluffy and can be made gluten free. A great way to use up excess walnuts this walnut torte is fantastic alongside a cup of tea. I like mine with just a dusting of icing sugar but feel free to add a dollop of cream and side of berries to fancy up this little treat with a bit of pizazz.
Super simple yet deliciously satisfying these apple turnovers using puff pastry contain a lot of nostalgia for me. Sweet and crisp stewed apples with a dash of cinnamon (or pumpkin spice) and a handful of sultanas make these hand pies easy to make and easy to devour over and over and over again. A fine reason to keep a packet of ready rolled puff pastry in the freezer at all times.
This apple and blackberry slump is a great, quick and easy after dinner treat. Perfect with a quinelle of freshly whipped cream or ice cream, this is a dessert best eaten steaming hot and straight out of the oven. Here I show you how to make one portion for now and a portion for later or as a freezer meal which is great for when you need something sweet to treat any unexpected house guests.
These sourdough rolls are perfectly sized slider rolls but can easily be used as a dinner roll; they taste fantastic with a knob of butter dipped in your favorite soup or used to soak up the last morsels of a delicious curry. A bit of decadence with the addition of a sprinkling of tasty cheese over the top just prior to baking finishes these rolls of nicely and goes well with the tang of fresh sourdough bread. Unsurprisingly, these do not last long in our household.
This is the recipe for my tomato free white lasagne. Made with ground mince just like most lasagne I like to add a can of borlotti beans as well as plenty of cheese. Unlike most lasagne I like to add the cheese sauce or bechamel sauce to the bologna or meat sauce and adding it as a combined layer when assembling the lasagne. Also, the meat sauce is packed full of vegetables as well as tasty condiments like worchester sauce. This lasagne is a firm family favourite and as an added bonus it freezes and reheats (in oven or microwave) really well.
This post is all about how I made three separate greeting cards using the emboss resist technique. I also show you how I made my own custom coloured card stock using alcohol markers. The results have a wow factor to them and are sure to impress whoever I decided to gift them to.
This sourdough discard crackers recipe is another sourdough starter recipe that is quick and easy to whip up and out onto the servery. Demonstrated with a plain salt as well as a Za’atar spice blend topping, these crackers are thin and crispy and perfect for your next cheese platter or even just as a quick appetizer or snack.
This is a shaker card I made because I wanted to make a cute themed card for a baby shower card. I have had a slight obsession with making blended backgrounds for a while so was trying to utilise a sunset background as well as a baby themed stamp set I acquired off Aliexpress. Welcome Little One became the sentiment as I wanted to use up a large format diecut as well as try out a set of new sentiment strip diecuts. Enjoy and let me know if you have a go at making a similar style card.
