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.

It’s such a celebratory drink with the bubbles exploding round…

Double Chocolate Cheesecake with fresh strawberry sauce and creamy chocolate drizzle

This double chocolate cheesecake with fresh strawberry sauce is such a useful recipe to have. We all need to know desserts that are great for many occasions, such as Valentines day or for when families gather for the holidays. This tastes almost like a mousse cake but is creamier. This is food of the heavens,…

Mango and Passion Fruit Daiquiri

This scrumptious homemade Mango and Passion Fruit Daiquiri is so easy to make. It’s a sweet cocktail, made with mango but it’s well balanced with the sharpness of passion fruit and lime.

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…

This watermelon water with ginger and lime is perfectly refreshing. I’m slightly obsessed by it! No small feat for someone who only…

Chocolate and Clementine Popcorn

Making homemade sweet popcorn is super easy and fun. Holding the lid down as the hard little kernels loudly pop and bash against the sides of the saucepan never gets old. There is an endless amount of spices you could add, but in this recipe I’ve gone for something a little different. My Chocolate and…

Pimm’s Ice-lollies

Adult flavoured ice lollies are a perfect way to chill this summer. These Pimm’s ice-lollies are so refreshing and make a quirky way to start a cool summer gathering. Personally, I like alcohol in pretty much anything! I really do love a Pimm’s but find it is never quite cold enough, not like an icy gin…

How do you make Eton Mess in a new and exciting way?

A healthier brownie? Yes, my lovelies, really! I’ve created this one to be high in antioxidant rich ingredients and high in flavour. I know I’m spoiling you, but I’m spoiling myself too. As a chocoholic I’m loving life!
