Blackberry, Chia And Lemon Sponge Puddings With Blackberry Custard...


Blackberry, chia and lemon sponge puddings with blackberry custard:

Forget about a kitchen full of steam these wonderfully light tangy steamed puds get a modern make over and are cooked in the oven in a roasting tin covered with a large of foil.

Steamed puddings are wonderfully forgiving, so if you get a little delayed eating your main course and the puddings are ready, don’t feel you must rush, turn off the oven and leave for an extra 10 even 15 minutes cooking.


Dairy free, gluten free

Bring On The Cold!


A few weeks ago I received an email to tell me Blacks & Millets are working alongside brands such as The North Face and Berghaus on their new season jackets. Their range include the stylish Thermoball & Stormcloud ranges. Some great brands and lovely warm coats then. Excellent.


They kindly asked me if I would like to pick one of their coats and take part in their new campaign; Bring on the cold!

Squash And Black Bean Chilli...


Squash and black bean chilli.

serves 4

Either stuff a whole squash with the chilli, or dice and roast the squash and add it to the chilli. The latter opens up a whole variety of serving suggestions: eat it with rice or in a baked potato; top it with a dollop of soured cream, some spicy tomato salsa or some guacamole; stuff it in a taco with some grated cheese; or spread it over a tortilla. If you are stuffing the squash you will need to use one that is a suitable size and will hold its shape when cooked, such as onion squash.

Enchanted Forest Scarf...

I love to wear scarfs around this time of year.



Usually something bright and fun to add a bit of colour to my plain Winter coats. Giving you a touch of style, but still warm and cosy.

Autumn Fun...


Me and my daughter making the most of the Autumn leaves.

These pictures were taken on our walk last week. Something fun about kicking the fallen leaves and chucking them around in the air. 

What is not to love about the wonderful colours of Autumn!?!

Autumn 2015 So Far...


A few pictures of Autumn.

We have had a warm Autumn so far, but this week things have changed! The days are getting cooler. The nights are getting darker earlier. Summer is now just a memory away. I have just noticed a few more leaves have blown off the trees. Soon they will be bare and ready for Winter.

Autumn Walks And School Runs..


Having a puppy means I get lot of exercise. 

A running partner whenever I need one and lots of walks daily!!

We have a lovely spot nearby where Mollie can run off the lead. 

{No cars around or she would run after them to try and round them up!}


Mollie can have a run around here and I can take pictures, perfect!

Keds Autumn/Fall 13 Review...


I was super excited to be asked if I would like to review a pair of Keds new arrival autumn 13 canvas shoes.

I am a huge fan of the comfy canvas shoes, as you can dress them up with  dresses and skirts or wear them casual with jeans and shorts. I have taken a look through the fall 13 collection and it is amazing, lots of star, strips, sequins, bright colours and cosmic ones too.
