Homemade Peanut Butter Granola

Welcome to my new breakfast obsession, peanut butter granola 🙂 I know I am a little obsessed with all things peanut butter, but I wanted to try and crack this heavenly ingredient as a healthy breakfast treat. I love peanut butter pancakes and muffins but I don’t like the guilt or the inches these delights put on my waistline if eaten every day. So I needed to find a healthier way to enjoy it and I think I’ve cracked it! Granola...

Honey Preserved Fruit

I wanted to have a chance to enjoy some of the currant seasonal fruits during the spring and even into summer. I love cranberries, kumquats and physalis in particular and they are only fresh at this time of year. So I decided to preserve some, but I didn’t want to use alcohol. I don’t have a problem with alcohol preserved fruits I just didn’t want to do it this time. After doing some research I discovered that long ago, families would...

Homemade Sweet Mincemeat

With Christmas fast approaching it’s time to get things organised and for me that means making my own sweet mincemeat. Don’t get me wrong it’s not hugely expensive to buy ready made but as always the homemade stuff is always better. You know what’s in the jar because you put it there and it always tastes better. Also as another point for me, I can make mine 100% vegetarian 😀 which is always a good thing. Traditionally mincemeat...

Used Vanilla pods and what to do with them.

This week I’m not bringing you a recipe but hopefully a little something that may be helpful. These last few weeks I have been using a lot of vanilla beans, actually if you’re anything like me then you buy and use vanilla pods quite a lot. And lets face it they are expensive! Really expensive! But nothing beats the flavour they bring to home bakes and it’s always lovely to see those teeny tiny little black seeds running through cake,...
