But another thing that really makes me know its summer is lavender. I love to fuse the two of them, and today I want to share two things with you, lavender lemonade plus lavender sugar. First The Lavender Lemonade Nothing beats the heat better than homemade lemonade on a hot summer’s day and as I mentioned I love to add lavender to mine.

Grilled Nectarine Quinoa Salad with Wild Rocket Pesto and Goats Cheese

It’s summer so that means its salad season! Yeah I love salad season, being vegetarian I look forward to all the yummy veggies available. I eat so many salads that if I was to share them all with you this would really be a salad blog and not a baking blog. But this grilled nectarine quinoa salad with wild rocket pesto and goats cheese was just too good not to share. Decedent and Healthy! Can such a thing exist? Yes it can, there is very little added fat in here just a little olive oil which is cooked off and a little is used for the...

Homemade Strawberry Banana Ice Cream

With the weather really starting to hot up now I am putting my ice cream maker into overdrive! I made this recipe and it was devoured so quickly I had to make it again so I could grab a few shots before we tucked into the next batch of this rich and creamy fresh homemade strawberry banana ice cream. Fruity Madness I originally set out to make a fresh strawberry ice cream. But I had a couple of overly ripe banana’s staring at me from the fruit bowl begging to be used. And lets face it I have never hidden the fact that I am a little...

Butterfly Cakes

Before we get started I want to wish a happy 4th July to all my American friends, I hope you have a great day 😀 Now back to todays post, nothing screams British summer more to me then the humble and rather simple butterfly cakes, pretty, effective and really tasty 😀 Lovely Vanilla There is no hard and fast rule stating these should be vanilla. I have seen chocolate ones in the past but traditionally they are vanilla because they have a jammy little secret in the middle that tastes better with vanilla. That’s what always makes these...

Strawberries and Cream White Chocolate Bark

I have just cheered Andy Murray into the second week of Wimbledon while snacking on this delightful chocolaty snack. I took my inspiration from the famous Wimbledon treat of strawberries and cream.   White chocolate sprinkled with freeze dried strawberries, Wimbledon-luscious 😀 A little time away I must say it is good to be back and posting again these last few months for me have been both horrible and fantastic all at the same time. My Nan took a stroke and I have had to return back down South to England to help my Mum out while my Nan was...

Chocolate Chip Scones

I have always had a bit of an issue with scones, I love to eat them and so does Michael they are his favourite treat but I have never really been able to make them 🙁 I have successfully made blueberry buttermilk scones before, check them out here but I was seriously getting bored with the same recipe.
