All Things Green Pizza

July 8, 2011


I was so impressed with the flatbread dough from my last post (Middle Eastern Mince Flatbread), that I decided to make it again and go with a vegetarian topping instead! So, hot on the heels of the last dough-based delight come this, All Things Green pizza. So called, because I threw on it whatever green […]

Middle Eastern Pomegranate Mince Flatbread

July 4, 2011


I always find myself drawn to recipes with flavours from the Middle East. I think it’s something to do with the clever mix of spices and sweetness in the dishes and the pungent aromas and evocative nature of the recipes. From tagines, to dips, to amazing baked vegetable dishes. The flavours pack-a-punch that just work […]

Coco-Berry Bake Bars

June 26, 2011


I’ve been experimenting lately with cake bars. A slightly more solid version of cakey-lovelyness, which seem popular in a lot of my American and Australian cookbooks. The traditional sponge in all it’s forms still reigns supreme in tea shops and kitchens in the UK, but I think there may also be a place for these […]

Raspberry & Almond Bake Bars

June 18, 2011


I do very, very much love the combination of raspberry and almond. In nowhere can it’s deliciousness be beaten than in the perfect Bakewell Tart. Pastry, frangipane, tart raspberries and smooth almonds combine to create mouthfuls of heaven. Perfection!! This I should point out though is not a bakewell tart! It’s a bit of everything really…. A […]

Chocolate and Cherry Brownies (butter & flour free!)

May 21, 2011


The chocolate brownie was created to torment sweet-toothed individuals everywhere! The absolute deliciousness of biting through a slightly crunchy top, to a dense, moist and moreish chocolate centre is enough to weaken the willpower of even the strongest! When served warm drizzled with cream or cold, cold ice cream the chocolate brownie reaches what I can only imagine are […]

Cherry & Ricotta Muffins

March 27, 2011


As my recent posts (Almond & Pear Tart) will attest, I’ve been having a bit of a cupboard clear out. Among other delights, I was faced with a tin of black pitted cherries in juice. I pondered my options….cherry pie maybe, cherry cobbler, cherry sauce for game perhaps?? However, the problem with tinned cherries is […]

Fruity Spelt & Brazil Nut Loaf

March 24, 2011


Ever since I was little, I’ve loved a slice of fruit bread. My mum used to buy Soreen, a dense, malty fruit bread that was almost mouldable. Spread with jam or warmed slightly and eaten on it’s own, it was the perfect afternoon snack. Over the years, I’ve experimented regularly with my own fruit-breads from […]
