You could easily be fooled into thinking that all I ever make are empire biscuits. I wouldn’t blame you for having that belief. I love empire biscuits. I think they are a great alternative to cupcakes as a centrepiece and as you probably know, I have made them for Father’s Day, the Scottish referendum and even made Queen Bey biscuits for my sister’s birthday. They taste so delicious and they  Read More

This is my last Spain related post I promise! It is a really good one though.

To my delight, this post is all about my favourite thing…chocolate. If you read the “Long for a chocolate brownie” post then you will know all about my pre-holiday chocolate embargo. Well all that sacrificing Read More

This was one of those dishes that was made by just shoving everything in a pan and ended up being a delicious weekend brunch. Although we had this as brunch, you could easily have it for lunch or an evening meal.

Swiss rolls are, admittedly, a little retro. My memories of them are based solely on the ones you find in the supermarket which have a fake tasting cardboard sponge, cheap jam and lots of sugar. However, as I have delved into the swiss roll world, there is actually a lot more to it than that and surprisingly Read More

Out and about: Restaurants / Pub food


This is a different Sunday pub food post. There are no recipes. I just have the absolute joy of sharing the best Sunday roast I have ever had with you.

The Harwood Arms is a michelin star pub in Fulham. We went for lunch last year and I didn’t think it could get any better but it most certainly did. It is one of my favourite restaurants in London. The food is incredible as are the drinks. You only need to look at the picture above to get a sense of just how great it is.

This time we went on a Sunday and to our delight they were serving Read More
