walnut and stem ginger sticky toffee pudding.


One of my favourite desserts, sure to warm your up in the colder months. Although I wouldn't say no sticky toffee pudding any time of year. With a zing of ginger and hints of crushed walnut throughout, this twist on a sticky toffee pudding is the perfect warming dessert. For dinner party success, make the mix ahead and bake at the last minute! Serve with lashings of thick double cream and an extra spike of stem ginger syrup.

b-ready for anything with nutella.


Nutella fan? If you're here, I'm guessing so. That makes the both of us. So, you can join in my excitement for the lip-smacking launch of the Nutella B-ready bars. Delicious signature hazelnut and cocoa spread? Check. Crunchy wafer shell? Check. Perfect with your cuppa? Check. These new Nutella treats are just the ticket for an afternoon pick me up.


These tasty morsels really as a texture sensation too. As well as the smooth spread (love you, Nutella) they have puffed wheat crispies mixed through. Extra bite amongst the mouthwatering chocolate and hazelnut flavours! These kind of confectionary combos really are my favourite - can you tell?


Although they're a treat, they actually only stack up at 115 calories. So they probably come up better than your average chocolate - except did I mention these ones feature Nutella?


Nutella B-ready have been available in all major UK supermarkets since September 2017, priced 59p for a single bar, or £1.99 for a pack of six.

Have you tried them yet? Would you mix up your mid morning snack?

three autumnal yoghurt recipes to try this season.


What are your favourite Autummal breakfasts? Mine really range from warming porridge with almonds, pecans and cinnamon, through to baked eggs when I have a little more time. Desserts too take a different turn - embracing nutty flavours, comforting spices and rich chocolate.

Whilst recently trying out the Hansells yoghurt maker I've been inspired to play with Autumn and Winter flavours. With white chocolate and cranberry, cinnamon and chestnut and salted maple pear and pecan, simply stir though the yoghurt to make for a tasty topper. Plus, the lovely lot at Hansells are offering to give away a yoghurt starter pack (RRP £17.99) to one lucky reader. Scroll on to find out more...
