Lucy Loves… Chocolate Beer Loaf Cake

Father’s Day is on the horizon again and for me, it means buying 3 bloody cards, even though I only actually have one Father of my own. The boys are perfectly capable of getting a card for Clyde, as is Clyde for own Father, but left to their own devices, no cards would be purchased….

Lucy Loves… Tiny Picnic Pies

Blimey it’s been warm this weekend and lucky me, I’ve predominantly spent it in my kitchen or sorting out our eldest’s bedroom ready for his triumphant return from Uni next weekend. The latter involved me removing all my Lucy Loves plates, glasses, cutlery and trays from his room which had fashioned itself into some sort…

Lucy Loves… A Classic Victoria Sponge

Goodness me I’ve been writing Lucy Loves and rambling away for 5 years now and never featured a Victoria Sponge. I’m not quite sure how that’s happened as I must make this classic cake at least once a fortnight. Not only is this evergreen recipe my favourite, it seems to be a top 5 for…

Lucy Loves…Easter Simnel Cake

Easter can’t come soon enough for me. I am excited to spend some time with the family, to enjoy some food, drink too much and to put my feet up for an hour or two. You can keep all your cheap chocolate, give me a bloody great big slice of Simnel Cake and I will…

Lucy Loves… Cherry White Chocolate Florentines

This recipe will feature on Lucy Loves later this week. Mother’s Day can be a difficult time as well as a special day for Mother figures. It brings sadness for some and celebration for others. Mother’s of all nature will be cherished this coming weekend, whoever they are to you in your lives; Mothers, Fathers,…

Lucy Loves… Sticky Golden Syrup Cake

Sometimes the need for cake is strong but the will is weak. That’s the kind of mood I’m in a the moment. Motivation is low and I am just not in the mood for eating anything remotely healthy. I have had a cold for two weeks, the wind has whipped my hair into a tatty…

Lucy Loves… Salted Nutella Krispie Squares

I am feeling slightly bereft as we speak. We are a man down at home as George has gone on a GCSE Drama trip to New York *lucky lucky boy* and Ben has just gone back to uni having popped home for the weekend to eat, drink and go out on the lash. So, it’s…

Lucy Loves… Tiny Pink Eclairs

A batch of these would make a most delicious Valentine’s treat. This year, for the first time in 33 years, Clyde and I have decided not to bother buying Valentine’s cards. We have never gone down the flowers or dinner out path, but we have always exchanged cards. But this year, we have finally come…

Banana-breakfast-cookies-recipe-

Lucy Loves…Banana Breakfast Cookies

Cookies for breakfast, yes please. Another week rolls round and I have more bananas going brown in my fruit bowl. I only eat them when they’re green-ish, the minute they soften and turn remotely yellow/brown I am not interested. This leads to a glut of frozen bananas filling my freezer or, God forbid, I have…

Lucy Loves…Sesame Tahini Cookies

If you’re craving something gluten free and refined sugar free then look no further. Once again, as I sit here with my jeans feeling really rather snug, I search for what I should be eating over the coming week. I have an awful penchant for sweet things at the moment having not denied myself a…
