Simple Speedy Mocha Tart

I think it's fair to say that chocolate tart can be a bit blah! And as good as it can be, because yeah of course it's's chocolate for goodness sake, sometimes I just want that little bit of extra something to take it to that next - not so ordinary level. (Cringe...just realised that sounds so cliche soz guys.)

Jamie's Salmon Fishcakes recipe

Fishcakes can make for a tasty tea time meal. Crispy on the outside but soft and fluffy on the inside- they're easy, relatively quick to make and involves getting your hands messy which is always fun! My mum first introduced me to this recipe from Jamie Oliver,  and I have loved them ever since.

Danish Custard Pies (Linser) from Scandinavian Baking

It's embarrassing to have to say how many cookbooks I have on the subject of baking, but let me tell you, I can never have enough! I was recently in that well known bookstore just looking in the cookbook section as you do, and came across Scandinavian Baking by Trine Hahnemann, I was instantly hooked just from reading the title - never mind the beautifully styled berry-spectacular layered cake on the front cover. So of course that's why I put it onto my birthday wishlist immediately.

My 17th Birthday! Strawberry and White Chocolate Cake

In case you didn't pay much attention to the title of today's was my birthday this week. And as per usual - time to make myself a big old cake (well sometimes my friend has made it in the past) That's just not how I roll, so I went with 2 of my favourite things - white chocolate and strawberries.
