A little while back Rennie Heartburn kindly asked me to take part in a fun recipe challenge, Cooking Through the Decades.
The idea of the post is to recreate one of my favourite and iconic recipes of a from a decade of my choice.
Two of my all time favourite recipes sprang mind; Prawn Cocktail and The Knickerbocker Glory.
Not in the same dish though, hehe. Both still all time favourite recipes of mine which I discovered in the 80's.
Knowing me and my children well, we would both pick out the sweet recipe first every time. So I pick a special back to school treat for them!

Last week House Of Fraser asked me if I would like to pick something from their Kitchen Accessories range to review.
It just so happens I was in the middle of decorating my kitchen and I was on the lookout for a nice new cake stand. Perfect timing!

Me and my children are not fans of dark chocolate. I think it is the bitter taste of it that make us go errr. I had some as a gift at Christmas that need to be used so I made these double chocolate popcorn rocky roads. We all enjoyed these!

Over on Tots 100 website they have teamed up with Clover and are running a fantastic competition to win £500 in supermarket vouchers. How amazing would this prize be!?! My 2 oldest sons will be home from Uni then and it would be unbelievable. Just before Christmas too. You can read all about the competition and enter it yourself here: Win with Tots 100 and Clover.
Today I am sharing my #NothingArtificial recipe with you and this is my entry into the competition. I have gone for a sweet treat. Most packaged up cakes you buy in the supermarket has something artificial in them to keep them fresh for longer. It amazes me how you can sometimes pick a box of muffins up and they have a sell buy date of 3 months on them. How fresh are these? Also brought a flapjack that had a years best before date of a year. Home made cakes and treats are much better for you.
Over the weekend I made this amazingly yummy Sweet And Sour Satsuma and kiwi Pie. The sweet is in the biscuit base and dark caramel filling and the sour is in the kiwi and lemon juice, they work great all together! Good thing about this recipe is you make it in 3 different stages as you need to wait for the base to set and caramel to cool before adding the cream. So if your short on time, you can make it throughout the day.

Who can resist a slice of warm fruit pie? Don’t stick to the old favourites of apple or apple and blackberry, try this tangy berry mix in a deliciously crumbly rich pastry.
A perfect dessert to follow a family Sunday roast. Any leftovers taste equally good cold too.
