Moist and cakey, these delicious nut-free cookies contain homemade coconut butter for a rich delicious flavour. Perfect for lunchboxes, & Passover friendly!

This year, Pesach falls during school term. Which means that I have to make KLP packed lunches for Kipper to take in with her. Which is fine, more or less, except that they have a strict NO NUTS rule. Which means that just about every cake, biscuit, treat and sweet …

Fruit and nut breakfast loaf – for Pesach! Grain- gluten- dairy- & sugar-free

Packed with dried fruits & nuts, this naturally gluten-free breakfast loaf is delicious with lashings of butter. Enjoy it on Pesach, or all year round!

Insanely good zingy lemon and berry blondie bars

Squidgy, sweet, tart & studded with delicious berries, these lemon-scented blondie bars are a quick & easy tea-time treat the whole family will enjoy.

Almost a year ago we loaned Kipper’s old car seat and stroller to some friends who were expecting their first baby. When I ran into the Mum and not-so-little Baby at the shops last month, I realised we were VERY overdue for a catch-up, and we invited them round for tea. …
