    Chocolate and Greek Yoghurt Cake

    This chocolatey treat is really moist and satisfying. It’s healthier as well- so ticks all the boxes. The ingredients for this cake were originally supplied by Bakedin, but this recipe works equally as well. Once baked, you can decorate in any you like- it was Easter, so I decorated with chocolate swirls and mini Easter eggs.

    Easy Chicken Curry

The takeaways near me aren’t up to much, so I thought I’d try to create my own Indian feast at the weekends. This chicken curry is yummy and easy to make- a pretty good substitute for a takeaway I think. Ingredients Method Recipe courtesy of BBC Good Food

    I made this absolutely yummy pear and frangipane tart a little while ago. I’m not usually a fan of fruit-based puddings, but this was wonderfully sweet, with just the right amount of sharpness. It was the ideal Autumn/ Winter sweet treat. I froze some of mine to make it last longer.
