raspberry and pistachio baked doughnuts with a white chocolate drizzle.


Fluffy and delicious doughnuts with one of my favourite flavour combinations – pistachio, raspberry and white chocolate. I’ll let you into a secret though, these aren’t really doughnuts of the deep fried kind. Essentially, they are a simple sponge mix in my trusty doughnut baking pan. So easy to make – with satisfyingly pretty results. If you saw my pumpkin spiced doughnut recipe, you’ll know I just love to decorate these little delicacies. So I had to make a summer version right away...



the wine list: a wine tasting experience, direct to your door. plus 30% off your first box.


Did you know that wine is the most popular alcoholic drink in the UK? According to The Wine List, half of adults actually drink it every month. From fans of Pinot to lovers of Lambrusco, ask someone who loves wine their favourite, and they'll come straight back to you with an answer. But perhaps they wouldn't be as forward with an opinion. I know I'm like that anyway, I know I love dry white wines and citrus flavours you'd find in a Sauvignon Blanc. I know that New Zealand varieties are said to be better. And if I'm enjoying a steak or cheese board, I'll have a fruity red, please. But like many others, I shy away when it comes to technical tasting notes, knowing all about aromas and the perfect pairings.

That's where The Wine List comes in. And with home-based experiences becoming increasingly popular lately, that's another big tick. The Wine List is essentially a wine course, at home. As well as receiving two premium bottles of wine (worth £16 each) a month and interactive tasting notes for £39. It's totally flexible too, so you can opt in for 12 months or just try it for one, with your first box at 30% off. The team sent me a complimentary first box to review and share my thoughts with you. So without further ado...

easy chocolate brownie recipe.


People often ask my go-to brownie recipe. And I only realised recently that I haven't ever shared the basic one. An accidentally gluten free brownie recipe, I use ground almonds for an extra nutty and rich taste. I have loads of brownie recipes on my blog, but they always feature some kind of chocolate bar, topping or filling. The picture above isn't even mine, because I always add something. But believe me, they always end up looking like that (or even better - because adding chocolate chunks from your favourite bar is always a winner). So I thought I'd share the base recipe, for you to customise as you please.
