I'm fully in the opinion if you're going to be a wee bit bad, go all right naughty with something so rich and delectable, the Grinch himself will be sweetened.

Southern Peach Cobbler

Southern Peach Cobbler

A blatant pregnancy craving, I'm not even sure if I have eaten Peach Cobbler before, at least not that I can recollect, but nonetheless the baby wants what the baby wants! So on a cool Autumn evening, I created a scrumptious pudding that completely hit the spot. This is my take on Southern Peach Cobbler - peaches are nearing out of season, and let's face it, canned are way cheaper! And just as good ;)

Also, I used whole wheat flour to make it give it a bit more nutrition, but you could easily swap this out for plain white. 

Raspberry and White Chocolate Caramel Tarts

Raspberry and White Chocolate Caramel Tarts

It's not very often that I manage to bake something that looks as pretty as it tastes, but these adorable Raspberry and White Chocolate Caramel Tarts are finally fitting of that category!

This was a recipe I developed over Christmas time when I was feeling notably festive and wanted something that is easily shared between family and friends. With a gooey caramel filling, encased in a gorgeous shortbread base, and then topped with white chocolate and a single raspberry, you'll definitely get a few comments for delivering these to the table!

Peanut Butter Sticky Toffee Pudding

Peanut Butter Sticky Toffee Pudding

My love of peanut butter continues into the world of puddings and this particular recipe combines one of my faves, Sticky Date/Toffee Pudding, with the wonderfulness that is peanut butter!

Dubbed my Peanut Butter Sticky Toffee Pudding, this is rich, decadent and oh so delicious on a cold winter's night with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side! (Thanks to Felicity Cloake for the inspiration from her Sticky Toffee Pudding recipe!).

Cookies and Cream Cheesecake
  • Time: 40 mins (plus 4 hours refrigeration time!)
  • Complexity: easy

Cookies and Cream Cheesecake

Cookies and Cream is one of, if not my favourite ice cream flavour so when I am dreaming up desserts (which happens very frequently), thoughts of cookies and cream often float through my mind. This cheesecake is oh so delish and is a total cookies and cream indulgence!

Shaz's Christmas Pud and Brandy Custard
  • Time: 40 mins prep (plus 24 hours soaking time and 8 hours steaming time!)

Shaz's Christmas Pud and Brandy Custard

I am a huge fan of Christmas, in fact... I would go as far to say that it is my favourite time of year. I love absolutely everything about it, the festive cheer, the decorations, spending time with friends and family, and of course, the food! So it might surprise you that as of up until quite recently I had never made my own Christmas pudding before.

In my own signature style, I decided to develop my own Christmas pudding recipe and I must admit, that for a first attempt I am pretty happy with the outcome! This pudding is rich, decadent and moist, and with every bite I hope to bring as much Christmas cheer as I feel during the festive season.
