Edible Christmas gifts

Cookie mix in a jar by Katie Bryson for the Good Food Channel Website

I cooked, baked and styled for a massive 21 recipe festive photoshoot for the Good Food Channel website last week. It was a HUGE job that involved a lot of list making, shopping, recipe developing, and intense baking sessions. Anna, Sharron and I had a huge amount of fun on shoot days though, so all […]

Bramble jelly

Bramble jelly on feedingboys.co.uk

Our good friends have just moved to a new place with a truly magical garden, filled with apple trees and blackberry bushes. The children had a smashing Enid Blytonesque time running around the garden, climbing trees, duelling with sticks and picking the fruit that went into this beautiful clear jam. Bramble jelly is one of my […]

Christmas reindeer marshmallow pops

Christmas reindeer marshmallow pops

If you make one fun thing this Christmas, please let it be these reindeer marshmallow pops! They might look like they’d be hard to make, but they’re SO not! I once had a go at making cake pops, and I stress the word once there. Never. Again. So instead i’ve used marshmallows for the reindeers. […]

Spiced Apple and Quince Jelly

Sponsored Post To keep spiralling Christmas costs down I decided to make home made gifts for the boys’ teachers this year.

Review: Lakeland Easter kits

Easter chocolate making project

If you’re looking for a fun Easter cooking project in the kitchen over the holidays, I’ve got a cracker for you. Those fine people at Lakeland sent me a box of Easter themed chocolate moulds and kit so Sam and I took advantage of the teachers’ strike, rolled up our sleeves and got stuck in. […]

Seville Orange Marmalade

Sun-lit jars of seville orange marmalade

I’d never really understood the fuss about Seville Oranges… why would they taste any different from the marmalade i’d made before? Well i’d clearly been missing the point. My fab mum kept a bagful of Sevilles aside  in her freezer for me to take back with me after half term. And so when Vivien Lloyd […]
