Oreo Cookie Brownies

This week I am back in the UK - my god, how cold is it here?!!! I've been as busy as a bee catching up with family and friends. I was also fortunate to celebrate my dear friend Tracey's 40th birthday at The Crazy Bear restaurant in Beaconsfield. If you haven't been to this decadent restaurant before, you … Continue reading Oreo Cookie Brownies

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

Snickerdoodle Cookies

Today's recipe is based on an American classic - Snickerdoodle cookies. A Snickerdoodle is a fantastically scrumptious, soft and chewy cookie that is coated in cinnamon sugar (nom, nom, nom)! I have to say that I love a good English biscuit. There is nothing quite like the crisp, crunch bite of a Rich Tea, a round of Shortbread, or a Chocolate Digestive. So … Continue reading Snickerdoodle Cookies

Christmas Countdown: Festive Peppermint Fudge

Today I am congratulating myself with a huge pat on the back and TWO squares of peppermint fudge, because I succeeded in resisting all temptation! I cannot say it was easy and I definitely cannot deny that I wasn't sorely tempted to give in - but I did it, I ignored all festive urges until the month of December! Don't get me … Continue reading Christmas Countdown: Festive Peppermint Fudge

Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies

Today is always one of the hardest days of the year for me, because today is my husband's birthday. That's not to say it isn't a day of happiness and celebration, because it most definitely is, but like many other men, my husband is insanely difficult to buy a gift for. He is the man who has everything, … Continue reading Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies

Halloween Fright Night Fudge

Why do the weekends always go too quickly? Especially when they are great weekends like the one I just had. It was typically cold, wet and grey outside, but I spent most of it inside, cosy and warm, huddled up on the sofa with my hubby. I didn't even have to cook as our Mom … Continue reading Halloween Fright Night Fudge

Three Ingredient Pumpkin Oreo Chocolate Brownies

We 'Millennials' are often criticised for falling victim to the law of instant gratification. Instant gratification is basically the desire to have what you want and to have it now.  Imagine the scene... ...I'm having a fantastically successful girls night in when the unthinkable happens - we run out of wine. Do we go without??? Do we stop … Continue reading Three Ingredient Pumpkin Oreo Chocolate Brownies

A Pumpkin Bread Affair

My husband has another love. He has been very open about his love affair and I have known about his "weakness" for a few years now. But who am I to complain? Especially as I also share in this particular love fantasy. So when he returned from a business trip away this week, I thought we could both be there to welcome … Continue reading A Pumpkin Bread Affair

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
