Candied Peppers With Chilli Recipe


It has been said before that I’m a bit weird and this recipe reinforces my weirdness. Please do trust me, this Candied Peppers With Chilli Recipe is delicious, I beg you to try it.

Easter Egg Pops


These are like cake pops, these are simple enough for you to get the kids involved. If you prepare the eggs in advance then the kids could do the dipping, sprinkling and adding the eggs, the really fun bits.

Blueberry Muffins Recipe


This recipe is one of Erik’s favourites; it is taken from Saint Nigella Of Lawson (paraphrasing Princess Di here… there are more than 3 people in this marriage – Nigella, Delia and a whole host of others!). We have fiddled around with the recipe a bit, we like to use a whole pot of natural yoghurt – so we have…
