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

Strawberry & Coconut Cream Tarts

Dry January? I think it should be called Why January?!!! Why is it that we all feel that we should be the best version of ourselves just because it's the first month of the year? Surely we'd be much better off if we simply tried to live healthier and more modestly throughout the year? I have … Continue reading Strawberry & Coconut Cream Tarts

He is the man who has everything, … Continue reading Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies

It’s Tortilla Time!

Some foods simply aren't worth the time, stress and mess to make 'from scratch'. Puff pastry, for instance, has to be the average person's kitchen kryptonite. Who needs to spend two hours kneading, poking, rolling and chilling when you can buy ready-made, roll and bake pastry? I used to think the same of tortillas. It's not like tortillas … Continue reading It’s Tortilla Time!

Totally Nuts About Almond Milk

Those who know me probably consider me to be a fit and healthy person. I go to the gym regularly, run, and I like to eat healthily. But today I have a confession. Behind closed doors, in the dark of the night, I become a crazy, insatiable sugar addict. I do not class a treat to be one piece of … Continue reading Totally Nuts About Almond Milk
