Salted Caramel Flapjack Sensations

These sensational flapjacks really do taste great.  Be careful not to eat too many. I recently received a promotional email from Costco which included something called Salted Caramel Sensations which looked very good indeed.  But rather than buy them I thought I could make something similar using two of my existing recipes, one for a […]


Banana & Coconut Muffins

Banana and coconut, a match made in heaven.  These muffins attest to that. I do like a good muffin and the combination of banana and coconut was just crying out to satisfy my craving.

I do like biscotti and am always up for trying something new, in terms of flavour combinations.  So hazelnut and date seemed like it was worth trying.  I saw it on Paul Hollywood’s site.  Biscotti are quite easy to make and don’t take long. But they are very rewarding, since they not only taste great […]
