Almond, peppermint and lemon are all high up on my list, but peaches are really where it’s at right now. Today I’m sharing two peach recipes – a quick and delicious salad and a peach upside-down cake….

The Weekly Report

I can’t believe how long it’s been since I last wrote a proper weekly report. By way of apology this post is extra picture heavy and you can still see what I’ve been up to in my WOMAD report, a review of Phom Tea, a Game of Thrones themed Nom Nom Club, a review of…

The Food Report: A Chocolatey Chocolate Cake

A few weeks ago I made an extra chocolatey chocolate cake for a birthday and it was such a success I thought I would share it here! I have to admit that I am not the hugest chocolate cake fan, so if I’m going to make one it certainly has to be a little decadent.  …

Watching Masterchef, The Office, Black Books, Frozen (yes, again).  Listening to Radio 4’s The Kitchen Cabinet – I was lucky enough to be in the audience for the recording and I got to ask a question!

The Food Report: Triple pudding

A Sunday night meal at my Nanny’s usually means at least two delicious puddings to choose from (or rather say “yes, please” to both). Special occasions, though, call for extra sweet treats, especially with so many of us round the table. For Easter Sunday I found myself faced with three puddings. The first was hidden…
