Maple Cinnamon Glazed Plum & Blackberry Sticky Buns

If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter or my blog’s Facebook page you’ll have noticed that I visited Canada recently, taking in Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto and the region around Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Roasted Banana & Cream | Ice Lollies | Paletas | Ice Pops

Eton Mess Ice Lollies | Strawberries, Cream & Meringue On A Stick

Summer means strawberries!

This month, Kavey Eats has joined forces with Belleau Kitchen for a Bloggers Scream For Ice Cream – Random Recipes mashup.

Home Made White Cherry Rum Liqueur

White cherries aren’t really white; they’re gorgeous pale yellow blushed with rose.    Fortunately for me, the small fruit stall just outside the office where I currently work has had them on sale recently and I’ve purchased so many the stall holder probably assumes I’m a weird cherry addict. When I told him this bag ... Read more »
