BFF

Regular readers of this blog will know that I am a Nigella Super Fan. I have every book she has ever written (I even have one as an audio book). I have seen every episode of every series and I watch Nigella Christmas every year like it’s Groundhog Day even though I have never cooked…

Banana Bread 

I had a hankering for banana bread the other day. I don’t make it very often and that’s usually because you have to plan ahead. You need to buy bananas and then let them sit there until they go brown before baking your banana loaf. I guess if you’re the sort that always has over…

Cigarillo Celebration Cake 

I’ve made this cake a couple of times and it’s perfect for any kind of celebration and super easy to make! It’s simple but it does take a bit of time so best to make it the day before you need it. Ingredients vegetable oil/oil spray 200g butter, softened 200g caster sugar 4 eggs 140g plain…

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Choc Chip Cookies

When I posted about getting a KitchenAid mixer several people messaged me to say that I had to name it. You won’t be surprised to hear that I’ve named it “Nigella”. My fandom knows no bounds. These cookies were the first thing I made with my new mixer and they really are the easiest thing ever….

Gluten Free Pancakes

I’ve only just realised it’s Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday)! We eat pancakes all the time here at Kimberly Towers and we usually buy a gluten free packet mix for Coeliac Daughter that produces fluffy buttermilk pancakes. I’ve just checked and of course, we’ve run out. So later, I shall be attempting this recipe that I found…

Norwegian Waffles

When we’ve visited my husband’s brother and his wife they’ve been known to make Norwegian Waffles for breakfast. I know, I know. Most of us make do with toast and cereal but these two do all sorts of things that must be a faff yet they make it all look effortless. My sister in-law, Lynn, is great….

Pancakes

A friend recently declared that pancakes were only for Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday). Nonsense. I make pancakes ALL THE TIME. Now some people call this type of pancake a “crepe”. I don’t particularly care, I just know they’re frickin’ delicious! If you want to convert these measurements to cups then click here for a converter calculator….
