Chocolate Tiramisu

Tiramisu for in the morning – yes, please! I know it’s rich and rather fancy to have tiramisu in the morning but sometimes you need an extra ‘pick-up’ and that’s what tiramisu is all about.  A translation of tiramisu would be along the lines of ‘ pick me up’ or even ‘wake me up’ and […]

Pumpkin Pie French Toast

Sorry to keep going on about pumpkin but having spend this season in the US in the last few years I got  into all things pumpkin and now associate them with autumn. And after making the chewy pumpkin bars the other day I had some pumpkin puree left over. Some of it was put into pumpkin […]

Breakfast Pop-Overs

  When I was in the US recently I came across a pop-over pan in William-Sonoma, which is one of my favourite kitchen shops to browse for inspiration and getting the occasional treats.  I didn’t know what pop-overs were but when I looked up the receipe for them I realized they are pretty much what […]
