Pancakes!

So today is pancake day and I expect the blogosphere is already inundated with pancake recipes. I for one am now so full of pancake that I can barely move from my sofa and it’s only Monday (we had pancakes a day early as we’re at a gig tomorrow). However, the combination of raspberry sauce and chocolate in these babies is truly decadent as well … Continue reading Pancakes!

Fig and goats cheese salad with honey and mustard dressing

Plus, as its Valentine’s Day coming up, do you really want to pass up an opportunity to say “This my … Continue reading Pavlova

Coconut frangipane lime tarts (and mini tarte tatin)

As you may have gathered from the limited number of pie recipes on my blog, homemade pastry is really not my strong point. After a food technology lesson when I was about 13 which resulted in pastry that would just not bind together I pledged my allegiance to Jus Roll more or less (except when it comes to baking club and baking with friends).
