Can you stay for dinner?’s cinna minis (mini cinnamon rolls)

Finding (food) love online – Can you stay for dinner? Guuuuuurrrrrgggghhhhhh….! If you don’t know what that sound is meant to be, it’s actually Homer Simpson drooling whenever he thinks about food.

When only banoffee will do… Mario, this one’s for you!

When only banoffee will do… I have a colleague at work who (bless him!) follows my blog avidly, and it is to him that I dedicate today’s post and recipe wholly because as I was sitting at my desk last week, he came up to me and said: “Noodle, I only have one word to … Continue reading

Amuse bouches: ponce or pleasure? Try my milk and cookies before you decide…

Ever since the bigmonster and I returned from a French wine tour this year, I have been singularly obsessed with amuse bouches. I adore them!
