Can I get a hooray for summer holidays? Sunshine, family time and of course delicious food are all on the menu for the next few weeks, and I can’t wait! Christmas is the perfect excuse to indulge a little, and I was thrilled when Ultra Mel asked me to put together a festive recipe using their vanilla custard.

Coconut, almond and blueberry cake

 

It’s been a while since we had a cake recipe on the blog and this one is such a treat! I made it a few weeks ago for a school picnic and it disappeared in no time. The cake is lovely and moist with a delicious flavour, and is very easy to prepare.

Recipe round up: Fill your cookie jar with these 10 amazing cookie recipes!

 

Earlier this week I posted some photos on social media of a batch of biscuits I was making in the old “roll and fork” style (I was trying to create something that reminded me of the biscuits we enjoyed as kids). The image got a bigger response than anything else I’ve posted recently (you guys sure love your biscuits!) and it inspired me to put together another recipe round up  – and this time it’s allll about cookies.

I first learnt to bake before I learnt to cook, and baking cookies at home takes me straight to my happy place. I hope these recipes do the same for you!

Dukkah and parmesan chicken tray bake

Dukkah chicken and vegetable tray bake

 

Last month I was invited by Sarah Baade over at Slice of Honey to collaborate on a sheet pan dinner project. Sheet pan dinners are right up my alley – as a busy mom with lots on my plate (pardon the pun) I love being able to pop a complete meal on a tray and get on with a few things at home while it bakes in the oven. Such a quick, delicious and wholesome dinner solution! You can also change up your sheet pan dinners (as you’ll see below) by mixing up your choice of protein, using whichever veggies you happen to have in the fridge and adding different spices and/or sauces each time.

Easy dukkah

 

There is something so enticing about this particular blend of nuts, seeds and spices that makes me want to sprinkle Egyptian dukkah on just about everything! Dukkah is one of those things that I just have to have in my pantry, and because it’s so quick and easy to put together there really is no excuse not to make it myself.
