Plenty of indulgent blow outs and healthy everyday treats to keep you on track.
I try my best to make desserts as healthy as possible so that they can be enjoyed more often without sacrificing texture or flavour. I have been experimenting a lot with vegan desserts so there are plenty of those.
Today is the second part of my interview with KitchenAid’s home economist Jo Richardson. If you missed the first part yesterday then click here to read it.
Jo is particularly passionate about gluten free baking and many of my readers are looking for gluten free recipes and cooking tips, so I thought it would be a good idea to pick her brains all about it! Not to mention my mother-in-law is following a gluten free diet, so she had some great questions for me to ask Jo too. (more…)
Last week I was sent some Josephine pears and even though they were perfectly ripe and juicy, I needed a little inspiration to get into the kitchen.
So what did I do? I quickly took a snap on my iphone and uploaded it to my Facebook page and crowd sourced it! You guys are really great when it comes to responding on Facebook, so I of course got some great feedback (in fact, almost instantly!). (more…)

This is such an amazing combination for muffins! If you’re a Turkish delight lover then you are in for a treat and a half, let me tell you.
I am so glad that I have had the opportunity to work with Vitasoy this year and even more so when it involves cooking up gorgeous muffins like these.
This fabulous flavour combo is the brainchild of one very clever Vitasoy fan who submitted it as part of competition. There were hundreds of entries, but only eight lucky little muffin flavours were handed over to yours truly, to develop into full-blown recipes. (more…)
Warning: Lots of muffin recipes will be appearing on Fig & Cherry over the next month or so.
Will that be a problem with you? No, I didn’t think so!
I am currently working on creating eight different muffin flavour combinations for Vitasoy and will be revealing them all to you in the coming weeks. My neighbours absolutely love me right now because they get to be my tasters – but don’t get too jealous, they have to eat the stuff-ups too!
These rich coffee muffins, however, were one of the good batches. Flavoured with freshly brewed coffee, moistened with ground almonds and topped with a creamy mascarpone and boozy marsala icing (that’s frosting, for you lovely American readers), they are totally irresistible. (more…)
