Soft melt-in-the-mouth, tangy, delicious, pretty and fun biscuits! I’m not vegan but love to play around with lighter plant-based and healthier ingredients. And love these cute cookies, as my friends did. Just their delighted ‘Oh wow!’ reactions were great when they saw then tasted them […]
This is where I ask you to look past appearances and trust me that this sourdough bread pudding is absolutely delicious. The proof of the pudding (ho ho) came when I gave a slice to a sadly unimpressed friend who took it home for teatime. […]

Strawberries and blackcurrants may not be the most well-known combo but they’re amazing together!
