Halloween Baking: Very Berry Sponge Cake – Blogtober 2020

I’m no stranger to Halloween baking, as I do something every year, but this year I thought I would do something a little different, and bake a cake!

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

We don’t need an excuse for cake in our house in all honesty, so I thought it would be fun, to make something tasty, sweet and Halloween themed, basically so I could blog about it this month.

Autumn Fruit Picking – Blogtober 2020

Is there anything more autumnal than visiting a pumpkin patch? While it’s a little early to be picking up a pumpkin; this weekend we headed to a local pick-your-own for some autumn fruit picking!

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

It’s been a while since either of us have been fruit picking, but we thought, why not! A nice excuse for some fresh air, and exercise, and a bit of fun!

*Date Night* March 2019

March! It’s been a fairly quiet month again this month, mostly because we’ve been really  busy with work, though we have had a little down-time here and there, so here’s a bit of a catch up!

Date Night graphic

We’ve not had any events in March, which means it’s been fairly quiet generally, we did enjoy a day out in St Ives (which you can read all about here)! That’s about the extent of our going out this month, the joy of how days off have come up recently, coupled with some rather hit-or-miss weather!

Recipe Book: St Pirans Day – Cornish Pasties

We had a bit of fun this past weekend, something neither of us has done before, and make some Cornish Pasties but we thought we’d have a bit of fun and blog about it!

Recipe Book

It’s St Pirans Day today! A day to celebrate all things Cornwall, and though I’m not Cornish, and many would say Stu isn’t either (you have to be born here apparently!) we thought we’d have a go at making proper cornish pasties!

Blogmas 2018 – Christmas Baking – Mince Pies

I do a little Christmas baking every year, I have shared a couple of my recipes this month, though there’s one essential I haven’t shared yet, and that is of course Mince Pies!!

23

A Christmas classic if ever there was one! You can do this simply and easily, using a jar of mincemeat (not meat), and some premade pastry, or make it entirely from scratch! While I usually go for the first option (still counts!) here you will find how to make everything yourself!

Blogmas 2018 – Festive Shortbread

I love making my own shortbread, and it’s such an easy make, so it’s no surprise that Festive Shortbread makes an appearance each Christmas!

Christmas 11

At this time of year I tend to make either traditional shortbread, or some fun stars with various toppings. Makes approximately 20 stars depending on size… a couple of rounds you can score to snap into triangles if you’re feeling traditional, or of course the classic shortbread fingers.

Recipe Book Autumnal Apple Crumble

Nothing says autumn like good food, and as much as it’s been a while since I’ve shared some recipes on the blog, I thought I’d start it up again with a favourite – Apple Crumble!

Recipe Book

Apple crumble, or any fruit crumble, is just so easy to make, and great with ice cream, clotted cream or custard. Perfect for an autumnal dessert!
