Finally, January is over! Like most people, I jumped on the health bandwagon after eating my bodyweight over Christmas. Unfortunately, that did mean putting a pause on my hobby and blog for a while whilst I threw myself into healthy eating. But, you’ve got to treat yourself sometimes! What better way to kick start the year than with chocolate! In keeping with the wellbeing theme too, these Chocolate Mousse pots are still reasonable in terms of calories and sugar- it’s a win, win! Perfect for a weekend treat or Valentines!
As always Christmas day requires an alternative dessert to Christmas Pudding. It’s not for everyone and it’s always nice to have a choice of pudding, especially when it involves chocolate! This Mousse cake is light but delicious chocolate dessert cake which can be easily decorated to suit any occasion, not just Christmas!
It’s been a while since I’ve done a review as nowhere has really stood out to me recently. That was until something very new and unique came to the small town of Stony Stratford, in Milton Keynes. French Affaire is a recent addition to Stony tucked away in O’Dells Yard. Although it is slightly hidden away, this French Restaurant/Creperie is not to missed!
Mince pies have to be my favourite festive food to come out at Christmas. They’re so easy to make and go down a treat. I love their versatility and that is exactly what this blog post shows. This post has 3 different ways to make your mince pies this Christmas- Traditionally with a close pastry top or with a frangipane topping or, with a streusel crumble. Whether you prefer the traditional closed pie or want to try something a little different this year- give this a read! There is plenty of room to get creative, impress a crowd, and get in the festive mood!
It’s Christmas time! My favourite time of the year. The tree is up, the house is decorating, I’m now just waiting to finish work and enjoy the relaxation! One of the best things about Christmas is not just the excuse to drink an extra gin but also to eat yummy food which only comes around this time of year! I wanted to get baking some festive foods and try something different from what I’ve done before. Stollen Muffins sounded like a delicious, easy, weekend bake to get into the Christmas mood!
Recently I’ve really enjoyed making cupcakes and with little to do this weekend, I thought I’d bake again. I’ve always wanted to give biscuit themed cupcakes a go. I always think they look aesthetically god every time! I chose Bourbon biscuit as I have a full proof chocolate cupcakes recipe and I know my team at work love a Bourbon!
This weekend I celebrated my best friend’s 23rd Birthday in Birmingham. It’s something we do pretty much every year in Bham without fail, and it’s always a great night. Instead of bringing a bottle I thought I would bake something instead. This is something which I think is a really good idea/thought if you ever had an event or Birthday. It’s something a little bit different and is fun to make as well!
