Lower-fat Capirotada (Mexican Bread Pudding)

Those of you who read my blog regularly know my love of puddings. Very English, but I have no shame.   Sweet or savoury, everything is fair game. Especially bread pudding. When I discover a new recipe for bread pudding that’s different enough, I try it. It prevents people from thinking I’m obsessed or something.  … Continue reading Lower-fat Capirotada (Mexican Bread Pudding)

Sour Cream, Chive and Chicken Scones (or Biscuits!)

Biscuit, scone, scone or biscuit. The same thing, but different words depending on whether you live in North America or Britain. And the pronunciation of scone can vary based on where in the UK you live!   Language is a complicated thing, isn’t it? I don’t claim that English is the most complex language, but… Continue reading Sour Cream, Chive and Chicken Scones (or Biscuits!)

This is not the first time or the last that my love for… Continue reading Honey Cinnamon Pear Cheesecake

My nan has been over and we’ve been going around to different places and seeing things. Lots of shopping as well. We went to the Titanic Museum in Belfast which was very fun. We… Continue reading Wholewheat Blueberry Muffins

Muesli Oatmeal Pie/ Mini Pies

A little change from some of the recipes that I post. Not as modern as most of them, but just as good. Not the prettiest either,  but delicious. I have a thing for history and historical recipes. The Great Depression is one area that I love. It appeals to my desire to waste less of… Continue reading Muesli Oatmeal Pie/ Mini Pies
