Easy Choc Chip Banana Bread Recipe

Dietry modifications can make baking a bit of a challenge! Cake may not come under 'whole' food, but it sure counts as 'soul food' and that is important too. Eating in a way that benefits your body and the planet needn't mean that you don't get to have your cake and eat it! Being able … Continue reading Easy Choc Chip Banana Bread Recipe

CBA Cookery: Tomato & Ginger Soup Recipe

The weather has been pretty cold and grim for the past week here in Cheshire. (Although I'm not really complaining, I hated that heatwave last summer!)

Rhubarb and Ginger Chia Jam Recipe

I'm LOVING experimenting with chia jam at the moment. The flavour combos are endless and you don't have to worry about pectin content!

CBA Cookery: Vegan Tagine Recipe

This is just soooo good! I wasn't really sure whether I could call it a 'tagine' since I don't actually have one of those fancy pots, I just chucked it all in the slow cooker, but it certainly has Moroccan vibes and flavours so I'm going with it!  This recipe is super easy and versatile, … Continue reading CBA Cookery: Vegan Tagine Recipe

There has been so much going on 'behind the scenes' here that I've not had much chance to dabble in any delicious recipes lately!

One thing I absolutely love about the festive season is the appearance of lebkuchen in the shops!

Gluten Free Yorkshire Parkin Recipe

Parkin is traditional Autumn fodder in the North of England. There's the biscuit-y kind and the sponge-cake-y kind and many different variations of the recipe for it.

This … Continue reading Gluten Free Yorkshire Parkin Recipe

Carrot Cake Traybake Recipe (gf, df)

I absolutely love carrot cake, it is my favourite!
