Red Velvet Cookies

Red Velvet Cookies B

I sure do love red velvet. So when I recently tried red velvet cookies, I couldn’t resist making my own! For those who don’t know, red velvet cake has a light cocoa and vanilla taste made famous by the deep red colour. But be ye not deceived for true red velvet should not be electric red but warm, rich, deep red. Enjoy!

Almond & Rose Marble Loaf

Almond & Rose Marble Loaf A

It took a while for me like the flavour of rose. When too strong it becomes overpowering and waxy, rather than delicate and floral as it should be. Here I’ve used it with almond to create a perfumed loaf that both looks and tastes marvellous.

A quick note: not all food colours are bake-stable so be sure to use one that is, such as Wilton Icing Colour Concentrated Gel

Cheese & Chive Squares

Cheese & Chive Squares BI came up with this recipe one night – quite literally! When I should have been drawing zzzs, I was rolling pastry and then tucking into these in the midnight hours.  Whatever time of day you find yourself making these I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
