These lovely little treats are packed full of seasonal pumpkin and lightly spiced with a few warming sweet spices. And dotted through out with mini dark (semi-sweet) chocolate...

Homemade Pumpkin Granola

I hadn’t realised it had been so long since I last shared a granola recipe with you guys. I make this stuff all the time in different flavours, but I quite often forget to share. But while I was happily eating a bowl of this Homemade Pumpkin Granola I realised I needed to share this one. 24 hours after making it, my house still smells of pumpkin and cinnamon. Its heavenly! Why buy expensive candles just make this stuff instead.     But before I get to far into the hows and whats of this recipe I just wanted to give a shout out to the...

Accidental Vegan Carrot Muffins

This may seem like a strange title for a recipe ‘Accidental Vegan Carrot Muffins‘ but it really is the truth. These delicious vegan muffins came about by a happy accident. I was happily baking away making regular carrot muffins with eggs, when I was hugely distracted by Michael talking to me in the kitchen and as I was spooning the batter into the muffin pan I realised my mistake. I had forgotten to add the eggs into the batter. Doh!!! Too late to correct them I baked them fully expecting to have to put them in the bin. But to my...

Banana Lavender Muffins

I just wanted to share this recipe before the sun disappears for the year. Summer may be just over but its still sunny and warm…. Just! And I know I have more banana muffin recipes on this blog then is humanly sane but personally I think you can never have enough. Especially if you are bringing something new to the table and these Banana Lavender Muffins certainly do that.     Floral Notes I totally understand floral flavours are not for everyone, some find them too unusual and fragrant and others just find them just plain weird. I have...

Caprese Inspired Three Cheese Macaroni

Everyone has their ultimate comfort food, for me its mac & cheese, but I adore a lovely fresh Caprese salad as well. Not wanting to choose between the two I decided to combine them and come up with this amazing Caprese Inspired Three Cheese Macaroni.     With Summer quickly coming to an end and Autumn creeping up on us, I wanted a new way to enjoy the fresh flavours of a Caprese salad but still enjoy a warm evening meal.
