Creating Festive Cocktails with Aldi

Aldi challenged us to create some festive cocktails using their great range of spirits and I don’t need much of an excuse to have a cocktail, although I haven’t created them myself before! In the end I couldn’t decide between gin or vodka for a cocktail so instead I created two similar cocktails that for me have the flavours of the festive season – orange and cranberry! I had to…

Butterfly Cakes Recipe – Baking with Clover | AD

I absolutely love baking easy fairy cakes and make them quite often since perfecting my never fail cupcake recipe but I have somehow got to 31 years of age without making Butterfly Cakes! So I knew that the time had come to make them. I used that same tried and tested recipe but with the addition of butterflies on top – and the children couldn’t have been more excited at…


Celebrating all things Cornish with GWR – and Cornish Pasty Recipe!

A couple of weeks ago I had a lovely delivery thanks to GWR – a hamper of Cornish produce. This tied in with the Cornish Food Festival and as we’re so far from Cornwall GWR thought that they’d treat us to a little taste of Cornwall – and asked us to cook a cornish pasty too!

Quiche Lorraine Recipe

I’ve been sharing a few recipes that I’ve created using produce from Aldi with summer in mind. Quiche is one of my favourite things to eat over the summer and it’s perfect for dinner with a jacket potato and salad, a light lunch or to take on a picnic. Today I’m sharing one of my favourite quiche recipes, a classic, Quiche Lorraine recipe. Here’s our Quiche Lorraine Recipe: Ingredients 500g…


Baked Orange Cheesecake Recipe

I have been working with Aldi creating a few recipes that you can enjoy over the summer. I have always loved making a low fat Baked Lemon Cheesecake so I thought I’d adapt it to make a Baked Orange Cheesecake instead – a nice alternative that is perfect for the summer and is great served with cream or creme fraiche. Here’s our Baked Orange Cheesecake Recipe: Preparation Time: 20 Minutes  Cooking…
