4 Sunny Bakes

Now that it's officially summer I thought I would share a couple of my favourite recipes for this time of year. I always change what I eat with the seasons and weather, so in the summer rich, heavy foods are a no-go for me, and the same goes for what I bake. So, the following… Continue reading 4 Sunny Bakes

Granola Bars

I don't know about you, but I love to snack. Maybe it's because I'm a serial tea drinker and nothing goes better with a cuppa than a biscuit or a little something-something to quenchย my sweet tooth, but anything sweet, or flapjacky, or a little bitesize sweet-treat, sign me right up! I've tried baking flapjacks, aiming… Continue reading Granola Bars

5 Things I Wish I’d Known Before Getting a Puppy

In just under 2 months our little Honey bun is going to be a year old which is so crazy, the time literally flies and I can't believe she's not going to be a puppy anymore, although in our heart she will always be our little baby (yes, I'm a crazy dog lady and I'm… Continue reading 5 Things I Wish I’d Known Before Getting a Puppy
