Banana, Kale, Strawberry, Peanut Butter Smoothie..


My husband brought a big bag of freshly chopped curly kale for us to try. I was a bit worries about trying it at first as we had never had it before. No worries though as we are all loving it. 

We have had it stir fired, boiled and raw in smoothies. Today I am sharing my favourite kale smoothie so far.

Strawberry Sandwich...


Strawberry Sandwich anyone!?!


These fab sandwiches in true Alice in Wonderland style are not all that they seem. 

While they may look like white bread spread with butter and filled with salad they are actually made with thinly sliced white chocolate cake topped with delicious olive oil white chocolate ganache flavoured with just a hint of chamomile tea, a thin layer of chocolate ‘grass’, fresh British strawberries, mint leaves and strawberry jam pepped up with black pepper and orange blossom water.

Dainty Delights Review...


My second born sons birthday is in a fortnights time so our cake making winter fun usually starts then, carries on throughout Christmas and finishes in the New Year, (or at least I try to ease off then!) We always try new recipes which we have found throughout the year. Hoping to perfect them ready for Santa. We love to try out fun recipes, cake topping, new cooking trays or cookie cutters that we have spotted in the shops to see who can come up with the best looking cakes in the party season.
