Peanut butter and Jelly Scones

Peanut butter and Jelly Scones is a paid collaborative post with SKIPPY® peanut butter to celebrate summer. So when I think of afternoons in the garden or picnics in the park, I always think of scones. They are a summer favourite and an English classic, so I decided to combine the classic American flavours of Peanut Butter and Jelly and create some delicious peanut butter scones to be served with seedless raspberry jam (or jelly as it is called in the US) using my boys favourite SKIPPY® peanut butter which is creamy and delicious.


The Ultimate Kinder Bueno Brownies

My teen has been begging to make Kinder Bueno Brownies since seeing them on Tik Tok, but he forgot to save the recipe, so we adapted our favourite brownie recipe and a week, a lot of chocolate and taste testing later we have perfected our recipe for Kinder Bueno Brownies.


Christmas Baking With The Family: Our Favourite Sugar Cookies Recipe 2

Christmas Baking With The Family: Our Favourite Sugar Cookies Recipe is a paid collaboration with Funky Pigeon. I am a BIG fan of Christmas traditions and Christmas Cooking. Over the years I hope these traditions cement by boys’ memories of our times together. I for one have always loved it when we are all in the kitchen and some of our best conversations happen when we are baking up a storm.


Easy Vanilla Cupcakes and Icing 157

Easy Vanilla cupcakes and icing is a paid collaborative post with limited edition HARIBO Starmix “Hunt the Double Yolker” #HuntTheDoubleYolker. What I love about this recipe for easy vanilla cupcakes and icing is that you use one 250g block of butter to make both the cakes and the icing, so no need to open a second block to make the icing.


Lemon and Ginger Scones

Lemon and Ginger Scones is a paid collaboration with Opies as part of their #FreetheGinger campaign.  These lemon and ginger scones are just perfect for afternoon tea and remind me of summers with my Mum and a nice big pot of fresh tea. The combination of lemon and ginger is refreshing and slightly fiery at the same time. They are brilliant serviced with butter, but also equally delicious with either clotted cream and lemon curd.


Red, White and Blue Layer Cake 3

Not only is it The Royal Wedding this Saturday it is also the final of the FA Cup and our patriotic Red, White and Blue Layer Cake is a super simple make perfect for any celebratory occasion. The secret to making a great Red, White and Blue Layer Cake is to use gel food colouring. that way you get a fabulous colour but also a light sponge with great taste.  I am going to admit that this is a very rough and ready cake and it would also look fab with less icing as a naked cake. Red, White and Blue Layer Cake Ingredients for the cake 375g/13oz butter or margarine softened to room temperature 375g/13oz more »
