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…

Afternoon Tea

I love Afternoon Tea. I love the weeny crustless sandwiches and the scones with clotted cream and jam. I like the dinky pastries and miniature cakes. I like that I can drink an entire teapot’s worth of tea and nobody lectures you about caffeine. They positively encourage it! So I was delighted to skip off…

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 Choc Chip Cookies

I’m always in two minds about whether I should put “Gluten Free” in the title of my gf recipe posts. I find that people who don’t adhere to a gluten free diet avoid them which is silly because I’d never post anything that wasn’t delicious. *This recipe is adapted from Nigella’s ‘Triple Chocolate Cookies’ (Simply…

KitchenAid 

Today my husband was very naughty. He bought me a KitchenAid mixer… and I LOVE IT. OMG I LOVE IT SO MUCH. We were ambling down the high street taking in the gorgeous Spring sunshine when we passed Steamer Trading – my favourite kitchen shop. I can never walk past one. They have an entire wall…

Honeybuns

Honeybuns was first set up in 1998 by a nice lady called Emma who used to cycle around delivering her own homebaked gluten free creations to nearby cafes and delis. 18 years later, having won a whole host of taste awards, Honeybuns is thriving. All of their baked goods are gluten and wheat free and some are dairy free…

Simply Nigella Bowl

I have a massive girl crush on Nigella. I’ve watched every episode of every series. I have all her books. I read them in bed, like porn. Sometimes she glances up at the camera with this crazed look in her eyes. Occasionally, when I’m cooking – Hah! COOKING! – I will give my husband my Crazy Nigella…
