Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies

It’s a Sunday which means one of two things; a day in the local enjoying a roast dinner and a couple of cheeky pints or a day with the oven mitts on baking some tasty delights. After failing to find my all-time favorite cookie, the chocolate chip Hobknob, in the shop this morning, I decided […]

Soft Pretzel Twists

Now here in sunny old England we aren’t quite the soft pretzel aficionados that our American cousins are. In fact, I only found out what a soft pretzel was as an adult! Prior to that, I only knew pretzels as the little crunchy things you get in chip-type packets. So discovering these beautiful chewy treats […]

Onion, mushroom and gruyere tartlets

Some days I wake up filled with this mad energy that gets fuelled into baking anything and everything – perfecting new recipes, whipping up tried and tested favorites and generally covering myself and the whole house in flour. Today is not one of those days. Today is one of those days where I want snacks. […]

Chocolate Cupcake Nests

Chocolate Cupcake Nests

Easter is here, and with it comes multi-coloured eggs, lickle fluffy chicks and bunnies, and of course the obligatory mountain of chocolate.

Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate Truffles

Chocolate truffles are, in my eyes, the ultimate in decadence. Rich, silky smooth, velvety, melt-in-your-mouth, almost sickly if it wasn’t for the hint of bitterness from the dark dark chocolate. You eat one and think you won’t be able to eat another they are just that intense but then oh! Suddenly you found room! Maybe […]

Spicy Prosciutto, Mozzarella and Basil Pizza

Considering pizza is one of the world’s favorite foods we felt that it was about time we posted a pizza recipe. I absolutely love pizza, a classic homemade thin curst with a rich tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese is my favourite but I also have no shame in admitting a particular fondness for a Dominos […]

Cheese and Ham Straws

Cheese and Ham Straws

If there is one food I could never give up then that has got to be cheese. It’s the reason I could never be vegan. Well, that and the fact that also loving meat, fish and dairy ultimately rules it out.  But cheese is on another level, whether on its own, with a cracker or […]

Chocolate Caramel Cookies

Chocolate Caramel Cookies

We recently shared an M&M cookie recipe which proved to be hugely popular, and this got the brainiacs here at BrightSpring HQ to thinking: which other candy nibbles would step a cookie up from being just tasty to truly sublime? “Caramel!” Burst out Mr BrightSpring, overcome with excitement. It doesn’t take much. Great idea though, […]
