Martha's apple and cherry traybake | Hello! Hooray!
Martha’s apple and cherry traybake

I’m very excited to feature a guest blogger today, with a really delicious recipe! My Mum’s friend Martha (age 7 – nearly 8 🙂 ) loves to bake, and she sent me this recipe to try out. I have heard that she is a big fan of Hello! Hooray! and loved seeing my feature in Craftseller magazine (click here if you missed that) so I know that she’ll be very happy to see her recipe here too.  Read More

Spicy aubergine chips with couscous | Hello! Hooray!
Spicy aubergine chips with couscous

We tried out a delicious new recipe yesterday which I found in the latest international edition of Flow Magazine (issue 9). It is taken from Rachel Khoo’s book, My Little French Kitchen, and there are a few more recipes from the book in the magazine too (all of which look yummy!). The great thing about this recipe is that you can make it to serve 4 as a starter or 2 as a main, so it would be great for all occasions. The recipe says that it takes 30 minutes to prepare and 30 minutes to cook, but it only took us 45 from start to finish so we’ll definitely be having this on a weeknight some time soon! It’s also wonderfully light and fresh, and is a great vegetarian meal. Read More

Caramel Cake | Hello! Hooray!
Caramel cake

Today is World Baking Day and so I had to share a cake recipe with you! I made this caramel cake for my Mum’s birthday last month, and the recipe originally comes from the Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook (it’s a recipe by Nelly Ritchie who is in the Newcastle CCC – yay!). It was the first time I had made it but it was super easy – I just went a bit mad with the milk in the buttercream and it ended up being a little too runny as you can see! But it tasted amazing so nobody was too bothered 🙂  Read More

Chicken fettuccine with mascarpone and Marsala sauce | Hello! Hooray!
Chicken fettuccine with mascarpone and Marsala sauce

One night last week, we had a few ingredients that needed using up – so I googled ‘chicken and mascarpone recipe’ and found this one for chicken fettuccine with mascarpone and marsala sauce. We adapted it from the original recipe (click here to see that) so that it was just enough for two. We didn’t quite have all the original ingredients either, but our adapted version was really delicious! And it hardly took any time at all, so I’m sure we’ll be making this on a weeknight again soon.  Read More
