I love autumn, I can’t imagine there are many people that don’t love it! But as I sit here and write this post, ready to gush about how wonderful this season is, it’s pouring down with rain and has been all day – that’s the reality of British fall! The leaves may turn beautiful colours, but they’re soggy piles of mulch on the ground! And you can get cosy in your oversized sweater, but you’re gonna ruin the wool as soon as you step outside! On the plus side, the miserable weather is the perfect excuse to stay indoors and fill your house with wonderful autumn baking aromas – and these apple and blackberry cream turnovers are a great start!

You can used canned peaches, so you can enjoy these amazing cupcakes all year round!I don’t think cupcakes are as trendy as they once were. Not so long ago you’d blink and a dozen new cupcake businesses had popped up, cupcakes were the in thing! Personally, I love a good trend, especially when it’s something as awesome as cupcakes! The trend may have died down now, but my love for cupcakes definitely hasn’t. I mean, what’s not to love? It’s basically an excuse to eat an entire cake and not have your family look at you like you’re dishonouring their name. And they’re so versatile too, with limitless designs and flavour combinations, you’re spoilt for choice! I think cupcakes get a bit of a bad rep to be honest, but I think people who look down on cupcakes just don’t know how to appreciate joy 😉

It’s that time of year –  summer is ending, autumn is getting so close you can smell the pumpkin spice and kids are heading back to school! I love summer for all it’s wonderful flavours, all my favourite fruits are in season and tasting amazing, plus it’s the perfect time to enjoy a refreshing cocktail or Pimms cup n the garden. But autumn is definitely my favourite time of year, the weather isn’t great in the UK usually – we just have a lot of rain – but it’s cool out during Autumn and that makes me happy, even if it is wet too! It’s such a cozy time too; snuggly sweaters, hot drinks and warm spices – is there anything more comforting than Autumn?

British summer time means a lot of different things to different people; it can mean day trips to the park, splashing around in rivers; complaining about the heat as soon as it goes over 25C  (That’s 77F in American money); complaining about the lack of heat when it starts to rain; Wimbledon; Wasps; Festivals and so much more! One thing that I think we can all agree that makes the British summer fantastic is Strawberries, we grow amazingly delicious Strawberries – and nothing says British summer like dipping a big, juicy strawberry in some cream as you watch tennis played on grass! I had intended to make and share this recipe to celebrate Wimbledon, but here we are, weeks after it’s finished! Oops! It doesn’t make these Roasted Strawberry Scones any less tasty or any less British though!

Happy Friday guys! It’s been a while since I posted a new recipe, I’m sorry about that – it’s just been a bit of a crazy couple weeks! But I came back with an awesome one for you, so I hope you’ll forgive me! I was at the market buying strawberries to make jam with and they had a big box of peaches for £1.50, so I had to buy them! All I had to do then was decide what to do with the peaches, and peach pie it was – great decision! This pie is amazing – it has juicy, flavourful peaches that just have the taste of summer in every bite, which are complimented beautifully by the warm cinnamon and caramelly brown sugar. I did a double crust using my absolute favourite pie crust recipe – it’s so easy to make, so buttery and absolutely delicious! Serve your warm slice of peach pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you’re in heaven!
