Kinda Fudgey Brownies

While brownies are one of my favourite desserts, they are also one I really struggle to bake. I think this is because, while there are a lot of recipes out there, a lot of them aren't very good. To me a good brownie is very fudgey and not super cakey. That is a personal opinion … Continue reading Kinda Fudgey Brownies

Frozen Hot Chocolate

We are getting uncharacteristically warm weather for September in Scotland right now. I was able to walk around all day in a t-shirt without my jacket on!

That all ended when I found Bibi's Bakery in Edinburgh! I think most of my friends can attest to how amazing these are and … Continue reading Vanilla Baileys’ Cup Cakes

Grilled Ciabatta Bread…

So yesterday was just one of those days that went wrong. It started with Max catching a mouse before his vaccinations are finished, which involved a panicked phone call to the vet (he will be ok). But it also included the lovely realisation that my oven had broken since sometime the night before. The grill … Continue reading Grilled Ciabatta Bread…
