Strawberry and Vanilla Almond Swirled Yoghurt Cake

Swirls and rainbows and colour await you in today’s post. Yes, I am a unicorn. Okay no not really, but this is a more colourful cake than my usual ones and I’m quite liking the change actually.

Mini Garlic Bread Pita Bites

We have a bit of an obsession in my family. It wouldn’t be that obvious, but it’s there, hiding under the surface. I confess, I’m developing this as well. I love garlic bread.

Basil Tahini and Carrot Couscous Cakes

Our cat had six kittens less than two months ago and so far they’ve been nutcases, running around the living room, attacking each other and everything that moves. Including us. I’ve come to the conclusion that they see us as nothing more than moveable playthings that also look after them. Contrasted with dogs, who see… Continue reading Basil Tahini and Carrot Couscous Cakes
