The Classic Victoria Sponge

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I absolutely LOVE cake. I could quite happily live without chocolate, but there is no way I could cope without the odd bit of cake and a cuppa!

Jamie Oliver’s chicken pie

Jamie Oliver 30 minute Chicken Pie | Hello! Hooray!

Low-fat Tomato Pasta Sauce

Before I met Tom, I couldn’t really cook. I could make something that vaguely resembled a stir-fry and I was also good at omelettes, but that was pretty much it. I didn’t have much confidence in the kitchen, and before moving away from home I also didn’t have a lot of time for cooking – I spent most of my time…

Yorkshire Parkin

For me, Yorkshire parkin is the true taste of Autumn. I’m a proud Yorkshire lass and there is nothing better on a chilly evening than drinking a cup of tea and munching on a slab of this wonderful treat. This is a really great recipe that was published in the Waitrose Weekend magazine on 13th September…
