Homemade Strawberry Poptarts

Homemade Strawberry Poptarts

These are such a cute way of using up pie dough or even the scraps of dough left over from when you are making and trimming a pie. The filling is just simple, it's premade jam, I used strawberry- but you can use any flavour that you love. I tinted the glaze a dusty rose [...]

Jumble Berry Pie

Jumble Berry Pie

Jumble berry is just a pie, with a whole jumble of berries as the filling. I really just thought the name was cute. This pie has strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and cranberries. So many sweet, tart, delicious flavours all happening at once and served with vanilla ice cream- how could anything be wrong with that? [...]

Pink Peppercorn, Lemon, Pistachio and Earl Grey White Chocolate Bark

Pink Peppercorn, Lemon, Pistachio and Earl Grey White Chocolate Bark

If I'm being honest, I usually am not a fan of white chocolate. There is nothing I like more than dark, bitter chocolate. However, this white chocolate bark is so well balanced and isn't too sweet. Pink peppercorns have a floral spiciness to them that really lend well to desserts. I had never really used [...]

The preservation process does take time, but it is worth it I promise. What can you use preserved lemons for?You [...]
