Chai-Spiced Pound Cake

This isn’t a receipe I initially planned to post in the summer. Chai spices with the warming cinnamon and ginger are usually my go to comforter in colder months – but we’ve had some really rainy and grey days and a chai spice mix that my friend Anne gave me recently was waiting to be used, […]

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 […]

Poached Apricots on Greek Yoghurt

Apricots… if you ask me, so much better than peaches! I mean, I enjoy the taste of peaches but the skin just freaks me out. I know that apricots have a skin not too dissimilar but for some reason they feel totally different to me and my tongue.  And they’re prettier than peaches too. Their super bright […]
