Apple Crumble Cake

We have a beautiful apple tree in our garden, and this year seems to be a bumper year for fruit! This means I need to get a bit creative when trying to use it up though, there are only so many apple pies and crumbles you can eat!  I made these yesterday (with Miss D…… Continue reading Apple Crumble Cake


Squash and Spinach Salad

I really feel the need for some healthy food, maybe because we have just booked our summer holiday and the horror of being seen in public in a swimsuit is looming, or I don’t feel like I have been eating particularly well since the over indulgence of Easter, so I am searching for healthy inspiration.

Rocky Road Krispie Cakes

I finished work early today, so I took advantage of having some extra time and collected Miss D from pre-school early, so we could make some Krispie cakes! I find plain Rice Krispie cakes a bit boring, so I thought I’d take some inspiration from Rocky Road, and add a few extra ingredients.  The great…… Continue reading Rocky Road Krispie Cakes
