Butternut Squash Galette

Autumn is a great time of year for fresh produce, and I love when squash is everywhere. Butternut squash is a great, diverse vegetable that can be used in so many ways. You’ve already seen me use it in risotto. soup and plainly roasted. You also know how much I love dough and throwing things…

White Chocolate Pistachio Tartlets

So, Bake Off is over, but I still have two GBBO-inspired bakes to share on the blog. Life is always hectic in November, and this year hasn’t been any different. But, I did get there in the end. I’ve done both bakes, and will post the Finale-inspired bake in the next few days. But for…

Tomato Tarte Tatin

I’m a few weeks behind on my Great British Bake Off inspired bakes, thanks to actually getting out on the weekends and doing things, so I do apologise that this post is going up around the same time as the Finale is being aired. First off, don’t bother making your own puff pastry. Honestly, it’s…

Spinach and Feta Puff Pastry

This is a vegetarian-friendly version of the Beef Wellington posted previously. I knew I wanted to make a vegetarian puff pastry so that I could maintain my vegetarian-during-the-week plan. It went down really well with everyone at work, as well as with me. Definitely a great vegetarian meal, especially with a side of grilled asparagus….

Beef Wellington

Beef Wellington was one of my favourite meals growing up. Mum made it for special occasions, and I was always going back for seconds and thirds. It was just so delicious. I’ve made it a few times for myself, but not in a while, and not in my tiny kitchen. I knew as soon as…

Easter Egg Chocolate Pie

You deserve so much more than I’ve been able to give over the past six weeks, and I really appreciate the fact that nobody has messaged me angrily demanding more recipes and blog posts. Most of you know that the hiatus has been to focus on my PGCE work, since weekdays were spent teaching and…

Peppermint Mud Pie

Yes, I know. I blogged about mini Mississippi mud pies just a few days ago. But this is a regular-sized pie and is peppermint (aka Christmas) inspired. I realise that Christmas is now officially over (unfortunately). But that doesn’t mean that we have to deprive ourselves of Christmas-based desserts straight away. I mean, we all…

Mini Mississippi Mud Pies

I have no idea why, but America’s love of pies has always confused and amazed me. I feel like everything gets turned into a pie. I mean, I guess I could say the same thing about the UK and crumbles or puddings, but I don’t have the same weird obsession with them. They don’t appeal…

One Year On – Giving Thanks and Pecan Pie

I can’t believe it’s been a year since starting this blog. My blog is still small, and still only read by (mostly) friends and family, but that doesn’t lessen the reason behind this blog. While I’ve expanded beyond just making recipes from my mum’s magazine clippings, the joy I get from making something that I…
