Lemon meringue ice cream pie

Tuesday, 27 March 2018|Sweet tooth|Tags: , |

People often write me, asking for a specific recipe or more of a particular kind of recipe. I always adore hearing from readers, but sadly I simply cannot get to everything I am asked for. Nothing is discarded though, as all requests dutifully go into my ‘one day’ file. This recipe for lemon meringue ice cream pie has its roots […]

Wednesday, 10 January 2018|Baking, Sweet tooth|Tags: |

Chocolate cake is hardly in tune with the January zeitgeist of post-Christmas-indulgence detox.

Made all the better because I get paid for it. Of course with money changing hands clients have expectations, so this is pretty serious stuff most of the […]

My silence the last 2-3 weeks has been thunderous to say the least. I apologise for this and can offer as an excuse only that I have been working my little heart out. Developing recipes, making food pretty and taking piccies. A girl’s gotta live after all. And then I had the cheek to go and look for some well-deserved […]
