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

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

The Best Cookie Recipe!

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

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 quench 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

Blender Pancakes

My favourite meal of the day is undeniably breakfast, and one of my favourite breakfasts is undeniably pancakes. One of the reasons I love America as much as I do is because I feel as though they are one of the only countries that give pancakes the credit they are due, by them being a… Continue reading Blender Pancakes
