The idea of whipping and cooking egg whites used to make me want to lie down in a dark room. They always seemed far too difficult and after a horrific attempt many years ago, my desire to ever work with them were wrapped up, boxed and placed on the never-again shelf.
By chance, I stumbled upon a recipe for Swiss Meringue Buttercream by Whisk Kid and her step-by-step instructions were clear, precise and best of all, helpful. I successfully baked a Rainbow Cake using her famous recipe and I haven't looked back.

I get so excited when I come across a recipe that works very well. It's almost kiddy like. Similar to when a child gets hold of a new toy and spends days walking around with it like it's a security blanket. This recipe for a sticky date loaf worked perfectly for me. I want to scream it from the rooftops or print it on a flyer and drop it into people's mailbox.
I've tried several sticky date pudding recipes before and they have been delicious, but there is something special about this one. It is an easy recipe that can be mixed in one pot. It is soft, moist and isn't overly sweet. The gorgeous flavour of the dates really shines through.
I am an absolute lover of butterscotch syrup on sticky date pudding, it makes it all the more luscious. However this golden syrup butter really compliments the sticky date loaf and lightens it up too.

There are many ways one can show that they care. You can shower your loved one with hugs and kisses, send a lovely bunch of flowers or splash money around like it grows on trees. I can think of nothing more loving than to nurture a batter from mixer to oven and watch it turn to golden magic and then carefully decorate it. It brings me supreme joy.
It also exists in the little things. The small gestures. It makes me happy to make my partner his morning coffee, pick up the mail or iron his shirts. He shows his love by taking out the trash, doing the laundry and cleaning the dishes.
One day he was having a hard time at work and I didn't know how to comfort him. It wasn't enough for me to give him a big hug and a gentle pat on the head. I wasn't brought up to show my love with grand gestures. So, I put the oven on and started to make his favourite shortbread. Whilst I was putting together the recipe I remembered he loved dried strawberries
, so I tipped a small handful of them into the dough... only because I care. These brought a smile to his face and helped wipe away the stresses of the day.
I also made them for his parents when they paid us a visit. They were an absolute hit.
