I have been searching for a really good hot chocolate recipe for a while… one that is rich in flavour and has that wonderful thick texture that reminds me of a the delicious hot chocolate we had at a restaurant in Paris many years ago! This one checks all the boxes and there is nothing like indulgent chocolatey goodness to warm up with on a wintry day!
End of Summer Plum Cake
Nothing can capture the change in seasons quite like a good recipe or good food! This plum cake brings the wonderful flavour of end of summer plums and warms them with a few spices into that perfect fall dessert. The cake is beautifully moist with pockets of magic created by the plums. It is perfect served cold (with a cup of tea, blanket and a book!). Or it makes a lovely dessert, served warm with vanilla ice cream.
Ina Garten’s Lemon Cake
If you have been reading our newsletter for a while now, you might know that I’m a fan of the Barefoot Contessa – I trust her recipes because they’re always delicious and so far, everything I’ve made has turned out! This cake is no exception. A fresh, citrus twist on a classic, old-fashioned pound cake, it’s delightfully tingly with lemon flavor and drizzled with sweet-tart lemon glaze.

Leek and Potato Soup
This soup has a velvety texture and mild flavour that makes it wonderful for warming you up in the depths of Winter – which is especially good because this is when leeks are at their best flavour and price!
Best Ever Buttermilk Cornbread
Cornbread is a simple, comforting and delicious staple, but often it can be dry and flavourless. I have fond childhood memories of eating warm chunks of soft, sweet cornbread, but I have never been able to find that perfect recipe myself… until now!

This fresh, fruity dessert can be whipped up in just a few minutes and is naturally dairy and sugar free! No ice cream machine required!
Turkey & Sweet Potato Soup
The chilly weather has us craving warm, nourishing comfort foods – and these don’t have to be unhealthy. This turkey and sweet potato soup is a hearty, satisfying meal full of fresh veggies, healthy protein and delicious flavours. This is adapted from a Jamie Oliver recipe and I make it anytime I have leftover turkey, but its so good that I might have to start enjoying turkey more often so I can make this soup!
