For those of you who don’t know, one of the societies I’ve joined at university is called Hedgehog Friendly Campus, which is a volunteer group centred around supporting the UK’s favourite mammal – hedgehogs!! For the last two weeks, alongside the FairTrade Fortnight, there’s been a hedgehog themed bake off to try and raise awareness and money for the British Hedgehog Preservation Society. Of course, I had to take part in this – not just because I love hedgehogs, but also because who doesn’t love adorable animal themed baking? Plus I was dying for an excuse to escape my desk and mountains of work and it fit in just perfectly with my eco-friendly wildlife challenge so win-win (win?).
Getting into the holiday season can mean plenty of people to entertain, events or activities to cater for or you just feel like you need the extra sugar to get you through the month of merriment. No matter your reason, the answer usually means that you need to make something (or have something available) for everyone to nibble on, or to keep you going at midnight. I don’t think anything captures that holiday cheer more than a Christmas dessert. Today I’ll be chatting about the best-ever Christmas desserts (at least in my opinion) in case any of you are looking for inspiration, but also what your favourite choice says about you. I hope you enjoy it!!
Hello everyone! Today I’m doing Halloween inspired sweet treats – a step by step recipe for sweet and savoury pumpkin pasties (inspired by Harry Potter) and some spooky gingerbread biscuits! I hope you enjoy it and it puts you in the mood for Halloween this weekend!
It’s official. December is here. And that can only mean one thing …
Come on, be honest with yourself. No matter how healthy you are, or how much you say you don’t have a sweet tooth, I don’t think there is one of us who can resist getting into the holiday season by munching on a Christmas cookie. Let’s face it. We are all Cookie Monsters at this time of year, but who can blame us? There are just so many delicious treats to choose from. There’s gingerbread, sugar cookies, peppermint bark and much much more and the fact that they are in ample supply this time of year is just too much temptation to resist. This is the time of year where cookie lovers (and people in general) everywhere can eat and bake their hearts out. And the best part is that the holidays are a perfect no-judgement period.
