Chewy Gooey Hot Tamales Brownies

I love the change in season. Not for the change in weather, but for the ever changing seasons of food. But rather than harping on about the latest ancient grain or root vegetable that has just been hand pulled from a small batch, organic farm - YAWN! - my wanton desires are driven by the candy aisles and my local coffee store, which … Continue reading Chewy Gooey Hot Tamales Brownies

Matcha Green Tea & Rose Donuts

If you want people to understand you, speak their language... ...this is a lesson that my husband and I have learnt during our cross-Atlantic relationship, even though both of our native languages are "English". There was that time in the car (A.K.A. the "argument factory") when we completely missed our turning due to me giving the instruction "turn right in … Continue reading Matcha Green Tea & Rose Donuts

Stars & Stripes Cake for July 4th

"Independence" is a dirty word and one that is impossible to escape right now. I hate to be a "Debbie Downer" but I am SO fed up with the EU Referendum and the impending economic gloom we are all to suffer until the eventual signing of Article 50 and the UK officially leaves Europe. So god bless America, July 4th and Independence … Continue reading Stars & Stripes Cake for July 4th

Gone in a Zucchini (Courgette) Bread

My mom (technically my mother-in-law, but I like to call her mom) is always taking pity on us newly-weds (even though we are fully grown adults) inviting us over for wonderful home-cooked dinners and donating bags of food as we head for home. My husband can never hide his enthusiasm to go "home" for dinner and I have to admit, I … Continue reading Gone in a Zucchini (Courgette) Bread
