Frosted Orange Cake Recipe

This may be the nicest cake I have ever baked. I don’t know whether it’s because I bothered to ice it and make it look pretty or that the sponge was so moist and full of flavour – it couldn’t have been nicer. This was based on a recipe for ginger cake but any regular readers know I really don’t need any more ginger in my life so I went for…

We have homemade nachos once a week – and the…

Amazingly, there aren’t that many slow cooker fish recipes online and a lot of people don’t really think cooking fish in a slow cooker is something you can do. But, you can definitely cook fish and even seafood in the slow cooker so I thought I’d…


Summer Sides Recipes with Primula

We love Primula and always have it in the fridge but if Hubby had his way he would eat it all in sandwiches. But, I like to experiment and find other ways to use that lovely squeezy cheese and so over the last couple of weeks I’ve been putting together some side dishes, snacks and buffet options using Primula. One thing we love to have as a starter or side…
