easter mini egg and malteaster bunny brownies.


An indulgent Easter brownie recipe, with melt-in-the-mouth Malteaster bunnies, crunchy Mini Eggs and sweet hits of white chocolate. This is my go-to (accidentally gluten free) brownie recipe, with an April twist. The secret is adding the bunnies to the top of the brownies right at the end, so they slightly melt whilst still keeping that signature crunch. Hoppy Easter!



five dishes I’d love to try... if I was a millionaire.

 


Have you ever dreamed of what you’d buy if you came into big money? Personally, my mind instantly goes to all the crazy expensive food I could try, along with the luxurious service that comes with it. Forget new car or moving house - think of all the incredible food you could afford and not even bother looking at the bill. From flourishes of gold leaf to rare caviar, here are a few of my millionaire must-eats. All I need to do now is buy a lottery ticket…


easter bunny rabbit macarons.


A cute, bunny shaped treat for Easter. I just couldn't resist creating some rabbit shaped macarons for the occasion, filled with moreish Nutella chocolate spread. I actually made these for a bunny mad bride to be last year and have waited until the run up to Easter to share these little sweeties with you. I may just be tempted to make them again myself...

3 sandwich recipes to inspire your lunch and brunch.

 


Classic ham, timeless tuna mayonnaise, beans on toast. All excellent and easy choices, but are you looking for something different come lunch time? I was challenged to create three inspiring sandwich recipes using the delicious Hovis Best of Both, found at Morrisons. A tasty mix of specially white and wholemeal flour, the softy and springy bread is a great source of fibre and Vitamin D, whilst lending itself to both sweet and savoury sandwich recipes. From a posh and chunky fish finger sandwich to a layered up pastrami combination, not forgetting Biscoff French toast, here are a few ideas for some lunchtime variation.


5 easy vegan recipes that I love

 



This year was the first year I tried Veganuary. Not only did it mean we reduced our meat intake for a month, we also found so many new recipes and meal inspiration that we still try weeks later. It was interesting to say the least to try out the dairy free cheese, with varying success. The meat substitutes were much better and I found a new love for oat milk and vegan chocolate However bringing more vegetables to our dishes was the best bit. 

If you're looking to try a month of being vegan, I really recommend The Vegan Kind supermarket and trusty BBC Good Food as well as these Olive Magazine favourites or pick yourself up some bargain vegan recipe books from The Works. Here are a few of my favourite vegan recipes, which all bring out a rainbow of vegetables and pulses, with no meat alternatives in sight.

Just in time for Easter... Creme Egg macarons! Made with two tone yellow and chocolate macaron shells, I've well and truly jumped on the Cadbury Creme Egg baking recipe train with these tempting treats. They're then filled with a classic Creme Egg buttercream to make an Easter inspired delight.

Happy (almost) Easter! I have made these Easter egg inspired macarons for my friend's birthday. it falls on Easter Sunday so we have decided to do a homemade Easter afternoon tea (I'm sure there will be Instagram pics to follow...) Any excuse to make macarons really! These are good for gluten free gifts as well as people who aren't fans of chocolate. Have a lovely Bank Holiday everyone!
