Chocolate Paradise Slice

This has got to be one of the best bakes….EVER! I can’t get enough of these. I remember my mum baking some when I was about 6 or 7 when I had a birthday tea party. The recipe came from an old Ladybird cookbook. I still have it somewhere. There’s nothing quite like the combination…

Fat Rascals

When you hear of Fat Rascals you immediately think of Betty’s the world famous tearooms. As I live in North Yorkshire, a visit to Betty’s is a lovely treat even though I hate the queues outside the York and Harrogate cafes.

Last week my Dad and step mum gave me a bag of beautiful looking apples from the tree in their garden. I was delighted with them as the apples on my own tree in my front garden aren’t quire ready yet. The apples are a bit small and hard at the moment. To top all…
