Rice pudding is such a fantastic winter comfort food and this almond milk version is perfect for me as I have been limiting my diary intake over the past couple of years. Quick to make but seriously indulgent with delicious cherries soaked in kirsch - the perfect lazy Boxing Day pud!
Christmas is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than with a festive punch recipe. This recipe from award winning blended rum The Duppy Share has Christmas written all over it - when else do you garnish your cocktails with a cinnamon stick I ask you?

One of the wonderful elements of Autumn is the abundant squashes and pumpkins. Roasted to perfection these vegetables live and breathe warm, cosy nights wrapped up with furry slippers on. This Butternut Squash Hummus is the perfect accompaniment for Moroccan and Persian dishes or served as a starter or snack with fine crackers. For this recipe it is preferable to roast your squash for a deep, rich flavour.

The kids and I have been enjoying this year’s series of The Great British Bake Off. E in particular is absorbing so much cooking knowledge and really becoming interested in what’s going on in our kitchen. But this week’s episode has left me concerned with the direction the series is going.

Nothing pleases my kids more than pasta. Except maybe muffins. Hang on, what if we could combine the two... This recipe from Mr Organic is certainly a crowd pleaser and is super easy to make for snacks, lunchboxes and parties. Plus, don't tell the kids, it is packed with hidden veggies!

Last week I was challenged to feed my family of 4 for £50 for the week. I accepted the challenge but instead of going to a low cost supermarket like Lidl or Aldi I attempted to try the challenge using my usual Tesco home delivery service. For me food shopping is a chore I hate so having it delivered to my door (in fact right into my kitchen) is brilliant, plus i am able to keep track of how much I am spending rather than chucking it all in the basket and hoping for the best at the till.
So how did I do...
