Decadent Chocolate Dessert recipe – Christmas is coming and I’ve given you two for the price of one of deliciously decadent chocolate dessert recipes.
The Proof of the Pudding …… is it in the eating? For new readers to our blog, early this year we left a huge Victorian house, with the most enormous kitchen, a 4-oven Aga and cupboards and worktops galore. Now we live in a 1920s house, quite a bit smaller (thank goodness), but with a tiny […]
This Roquefort & Walnut Rolls recipe is not necessarily one to prepare ahead – although I may try freezing them and see what happens. This bread roll recipe is from Paul Hollywood, taken from Good Food, and just sounded the perfect accompaniment to a big bowl of steaming soup over the Christmas period. Just a bit more […]

Mulled Cranberry Sauce This Mulled Cranberry Sauce recipe is taken from Delicious magazine, and after searching for a recipe that really appealed to me, and was suitable for freezing for up to 6 months, this is the one I have chosen to prepare for our Christmas Dinner. The flavours sound warm and gently spicy, and […]
