It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I won’t lie, the last few weeks have probably been the busiest and most stressful of the year and I cannot wait to close my laptop at the end of next week and prepare for Christmas as well as enjoy some down time at home with the family. Bring it on!

This treat is so simple to make that it barely needs a recipe! I absolutely love making chocolate bark, it’s almost like creating a piece of edible art. Swirling the chocolates together and decorating the slab with your favourite toppings is actually quite relaxing, and you have a delicious treat to enjoy at the end of it.

As most children returned to school this week I read a very funny meme posted by a friend that read: “I’m just not sure how my child will survive back at school without 6 breakfasts, 2 lunches and 367 snacks a day!” Snack time is serious business…parents, you can relate right? 😉 And being prepared with a plethora of wholesome options for snack time makes life so much easier. This recipe is perfect for that, and one of our new faves.

A perfect cup of tea with fresh rusks is one of life’s most wonderful simple pleasures, and you can’t beat a batch that has been home made. With lockdown still firmly in place and many of us continuing to work from home there really is no reason not to whip up a batch and pop them in the oven to dry for a few hours while you go about your business around the house (well, if load shedding allows, bah humbug!)

I’ve been on the cookie train since lockdown started in March, and this is just one of the many recipes I’ve been playing around with recently. It’s been a while since I last posted a recipe – the last few weeks have been a blur of school work and moving house (I know, superb timing) whilst keeping on top of my freelance projects. I’m sure many of you are also still finding your way in this new and strange reality. One thing we’ve all been reminded of though is that life is uncertain, so bake cookies with reckless abandon I say!

These cinnamon roll style pull-apart buns are filled with a sweet orange, cranberry and pistachio filling, brushed with a honey glaze and drizzled with cream cheese icing. Great for sharing at brunch or tea time!

Bakers, it is time to dust off those aprons because I have a real treat for you today! This week I am teaming up with Montagu Dried Fruit and Nuts to bring you some Mother’s Day inspired recipes using delicious dried cranberries. Earlier this week I featured a recipe for butternut, brie and cranberry tartlets, but today it is time for something sweet… how does a lemon, cranberry and poppy seed cake with yoghurt icing sound foodies? (Oh, and loads of pictures of cake, it’s happening.)
