Raspberry Sorbet Prosecco Float

This Raspberry Sorbet Prosecco Float makes a perfect celebration cocktail. It’s embarrassingly easy but utterly delicious and looks super special and fun. Make this rather girly cocktail when bridesmaids get together, when your daughter turns 18 or 21, when you celebrate an engagement, or Valentine’s. It’s such a celebratory drink with the bubbles exploding round…

Blackberry and Raspberry Rum Smash

Raspberry cocktails might be considered a girly cocktail. And, yes, it is. But, for you men I’ve added some butch blackberries. It’s sweetened only with the fruit itself and a little maple syrup. Along with a handful of mint it is a healthier version of a rum smash. Strain out the seeds if you want…

Watermelon water with ginger and lime

It’s time to rehydrate. I need it. My liver has been through an endurance test through the festivities and my skin has been lightly smoked by our living room fire for weeks now. This watermelon water with ginger and lime is perfectly refreshing. I’m slightly obsessed by it! No small feat for someone who only…

Bonfire Brownies

These deeply chocolatey bonfire brownies are delicious wrapped in a sweet, soft coat of toasted marshmallow. You even get some fireworks in your mouth with a topping of popping candy. They are a perfect Autumn dessert. Rather simply toasting marshmallows (nice, but yawn) by the inescapable bonfire this season, it’s all got rather exciting.

Cobb Salad Pizza

Every now and then, it absolutely has to be a homemade pizza. When I’m craving a delicious pizza it also means I’m craving sociable meal time. Social, because we all sit around the table rolling out our own bases and loading our individual pizzas with a whole range of delicious toppings. But a Cobb Salad…

Sticky Toffee Ice-cream Blocks (on sticks!)

These Sticky Toffee Ice Cream Blocks are an incredible flavour made with soft dates, sticky toffee pudding, toffee fudge sauce and salted almonds AND they are on individual sticks. Eeeeee! They are a favourite of Matthew but it really is a crowd pleasing dessert! These really do taste of Sticky Toffee Pudding but they are…

Raspberry and Blackberry Frozen Yogurt Daiquiri

Homemade cocktails are one of life pleasures. Ones with herbary and sugar round the rim, classic ones in Martini glasses, ones that sparkle with bursting Champagne bubbles, but mainly, for me, quick and easy fruity cocktails like this Raspberry and Blackberry Frozen Yogurt Daiquiri. This summer berry cocktail one is delicious, creamy and semi frozen.…

Summer fruit sticks

This is a fun and delicious way to eat more fruit and make a healthy or healthier dessert or an exciting snack. The summer fruit sticks I have prepared are raspberry crumble, apple s’mores and banana brittle. Chocolate and fruit are a brilliant combination and kids always love them. These fruit on sticks recipes will…

Eton Mess Ice-cream Cake

It’s warming up and the strawberries are tasting divine. It’s the season of Eton Mess! My girlie Charlotte is passionate about Eton Mess. So, I’ve mixed it up a bit and come up with a scrumptious Eton Mess Ice-cream cake. Yes, an Eton Mess Cake! Made from ice-cream! It makes a wonderful family summer dessert. As ideas…

Frozen Honey Yogurt with Lemon curd puddles topped with Lemon snow

It’s this time of year in England when you may be warmed in springlike sunshine, or equally it could snow. Either is possible in the space of a week. My frozen honey yogurt dessert represents the weather in March. Honey sweetened yogurt looks towards the summer, sharp lemon snow suggests winter still lingers.
