Peppermint Chocolate 2 Ways

Out of all the glorious festive drinks that come out this time of year, there's one which is my reining favourite, and that I ask for on the down low all year round - Mint Hot Chocolate (Starbucks is the best for the syrup, but Costa has the better Chocolate mix). So, a couples of… Continue reading Peppermint Chocolate 2 Ways

Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Unfortunately in England we don't really celebrate Thanksgiving, however I love the whole tradition behind it of being with your family, celebrating what you're thankful for, and eating a whole lot of food! Through TV and films, notably Gossip Girl (which is amazing if you haven't watched it before), it's clear that Pumpkin Pie is… Continue reading Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Christmas Planning

Yeah, yeah, I said the C word. It's November now though so I feel absolutely no shame. That's what this post is all about really, getting over the 'shame' that grinches and bah-humbugs make you feel about thinking, planning or talking about Christmas before the festive month itself. Little do they realise that whilst they… Continue reading Christmas Planning

Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate

I'd be completely lying if I said that I didn't love a Starbucks PSL, as 'basic' as it may be . I feel like Halloween is becoming bigger and more americanised every year, so maybe in a few we will have some many more options and pumpkin spiced everything. But until that time heres a simple… Continue reading Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate

Planning Ahead – Spring Bulb Planting

We've been living in our house for over a year now, and during that year one of the greatest discoveries I've found is my love for gardening. It was sparked during the summer really (hence the two garden renovations in one year!), but I've really enjoyed learning about flowers, planting, seasons and gardening in general,… Continue reading Planning Ahead – Spring Bulb Planting

On my baking quest to find 'the best ever *insert baked good here*', I'm most excited to share with you all the cookie! My favourite type of cookie are the ones that you can buy from supermarket bakeries in the paper bag of fives.

Chocolate Chip Scones

I know it hasn't been that long since my last baking post, but recently when I was flicking through one of my cook books I came across a recipe for chocolate chip scones and literally had a 'duh!!' moment to myself. I love to bake for other people so when Toby doesn't like something, I… Continue reading Chocolate Chip Scones
