Loving…Rachelle’s Beautiful Bespoke Cakes

Oh my goodness.  I’m not sure how one can eat something that is so beautiful.  Last night I stumbled across the Rachelle’s website, and I was immediately smitten with the beautiful and delicate baked goods.  They do a range of cakes for weddings and other celebrations, but I was captivated by the intricate detail in the cupcakes and cookies.  If you’re looking for some inspiration for your Valentine’s day baking, look no further! (Sorry SA ladies, Rachelle’s is in the UK).

Loving…lemonade & popsicles

Oh my goodness, it’s been a long time since my last post!  I’ve been missing it so much, but unfortunately things have just got really busy (typical for the end of the year).  I’m glad to say that I have a couple of sneaky treats up my sleeve, so keep an eye out!

In the meantime, I’ve been thinking about experimenting with some summer drinks (sorry for you folks in the Northern hemisphere, but at least you get to think about lovely soups).  There’s nothing better than sitting on the patio on a warm summer afternoon, drinking a wonderful cool and fresh drink, or even having a popsicle (it’s been ages since I’ve made my own popsicles, but I think it’s time to re-start).  Here are some of the recipes that I’m thinking of trying, let me know if you give any of them a go!

Lemonade from Iloveeco

Coconut popsicles from Aunt Clara’s Kitchen

Pink Lemonade Popsicles from Somewhere Splendid

Red Berry Popsicles from La Tartine Gourmande

Loving…Nomu recipe cards

Ok, here’s something to add to your to-do list for today:

Sign up for Nomu’s monthly recipe cards.

You’ve probably seen Nomu‘s amazing range of spices in the shops (I’m a huge fan of their rubs), but you may not know that every month they send out a set of amazing recipe cards.  Each set has a specific theme, and they are beautifully photographed and presented, and equally mouth-watering!  Previous themes have included “Milky Way”, “Easy as pie” and “Couched potato”.  Here are some recipes from this month’s mailer, titled “Empire of the yum”, with Asian-inspired dishes.  Make sure to head on over to their website to subscribe to the monthly mailer (you also stand the chance of winning a Jamie Oliver cookbook).  You can also check out all the previous recipes cards here.  In the meantime, you can drool over the dishes below!
