My Favourite Easter Recipes

To me, Easter is a special time of year. I always feel the transition of seasons strongly in April. Summer is transitioning into shorter, cooler autumn days. Mangoes and peaches are out, but apples and pears are now in season. This new season coziness just makes me want to get in the kitchen and bake. I have a crazy urge … Read More

Fruit Mince Blondies

It’s that time of year again! If you’ve been following for a while, you’ll know that I’m fruit mince pie obsessed.

Apple Crumble Filo Pie

The idea for this Apple Crumble Filo Pie was kicking around in my brain for literally months before I decided to make it for a weekend girls lunch.

If you’ve been reading for a while, you’ll know that there’s nothing I love more than a baked fruit dessert. I could never get sick of this kind of thing!

Mulled Wine Cherry Cheesecake Bars

Here we go! It’s finally December and I am torn between “OMG already?!” and “OMG finally!” after this crazy year. When we went into lockdown in June, it felt like we hit the pause button on life.

Pear and Pistachio Crumble with White Chocolate

I’ve made a lot of desserts over the years – from simple to more technical and complex. Many of them you can see over in my recipe index.

French Earl Grey Lemon Delicious Pudding

I love desserts – that much is common knowledge around here. But I especially love desserts that have evocative and descriptive names, that really make you feel something. Red Velvet.
