Chocolate Fruit n' Nut Flapjacks

Whenever I go abroad I always forget how England are pretty much in a league of its own when it comes to cake. I mean let's be honest afternoon tea anywhere else just doesn't live up to the high standards us Brits like to set. I would say it's not really that hard to create an average victoria sponge or simple layer cake but it seems not even the 4* hotel I went to could pull this off. It was a real puzzler for me and my family because every savoury dish we had tasted amazing. Patisserie skills was perhaps not as matching shall we say.

Glazed BBQ Pork with Cajun-style Pepper Rice

I helped my mum make this the other day for a tasty midweek meal. It was really good so I thought I'd share it with you. We adapted it from a recipe in the book: 'Jamie's 15 minute meals by Jamie Oliver'. I wouldn't say it was exactly that said amount of time, but it was reasonably speedy considering we did have to cook our rice first, whereas Jamie says to use cooked rice which will obviously save yourself a lot of time as your not having to pre-cook it first hand.

Vanilla Yoghurt Bundt Cake With Blueberries

I think sometimes you can just get a bit bored with the same-old same-old layer cakes, cupcakes or muffins, now n' then you fancy a change. That's why I decided on making this bundt cake.
