  1. Beth, the salad looks great. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I'm afraid I bought the peanut butter chips in the US on my last visit. I can't find them in the UK either. You can order them from though, but they are not cheap on there as they charge quite a bit for delivery as far as I know unless you do a big order.

  2. Thanks Sylvie. Perhaps I'll do some searching on the internet! I want some!!

  3. Looks yummy, and personally I thought the photo was great :)

  4. I love rice salads, I will have to try this after I make a pilgrimage to the store tomorrow.

    Oklahomans are as bad as the Brits for moaning about the weather. Here it's always too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry, too windy, or too something else. Right now it's too bloody hot!

    If you want some of those peanut butter chips, if you e-mail me your address I'll send you some in the post.

    Much as I love the Lake District, any info I could give you would be way out of date now.

  5. Oooh the Lake District. I stayed there a bazillion years ago--with my mom, that's how long! ;) But it was lovely.

    This salad sounds great. I love fruit and curry flavors.

  6. That looks fab, great for lunchbox inspiration

  7. Thanks Jan. I'll email you tonight. Ive tried everywhere over here and can't find them. Can you think of anything you would perticularly like - and I'll send to you in return!! Shame I can't send clotted cream through the post very easily. Salad Cream? Marmite?

  8. I always think salads like that taste better the next day...the flavors just come together. We've had awful weather here humid. Today it's raining buckets-I think that means a baking day.

  9. Let me think on that one, Beth, and I'll get back to you. You're right though, it is a shame about the clotted cream. :-(

  10. I'd love that salad by virtue of the cashews. I love anything with cashews-just made homemade blackberry ice cream with cashews last night. Yum!

  11. Looks yummy and would make a great BBQ side! Hope yu're out enjoying this glorious weather we're having.

  12. Sounds great, Beth. Like the sound of using mango chutney in the dressing. Can imagine that would be really tasty.

  13. What a fun way to spice up rice! I like the idea of making sweet and savory rice, the combo of ingredients sounds really heavenly :). What a fun recipe find!

  14. hey, maybe i could help you, this time! :) btw, we had a fabulous time in cornwall! you live in an amazing place! will tell you more next time, but this time it's the lake district!

    we went to the lake district a couple of years ago and stayed at a gorgeously charming and very friendly B&B near Beatrix Potter's house. I think it was called Buckleyeat. big open fire in the living room, friendly and welcoming owners, charming old house. They also had fantastic breakkie - 4 courses, if i can remember. and there are choices, too. it went sth like croissants, fruit salad, fry-up, toast and jam. and next door was a great pub with a lovely game pie and fruit beers! do check it out. i recommend it warmly.

    we had a car, but walked to places. there is an easy walk to lake windermere, and i think we also went to 2 or 3 wordsworth's houses (my poor husband was sick and tired of daffodils by the end of it all...).

  15. Thanks for your great suggestions Maninas - I will look up the B and B! Glad you had a good time in Cornwall!

  16. Great rice salad recipe and would be perfect with a bbq - very soon hopefully.

  17. This looks lovely, packed with flavour!

  18. This rice looks and sounds really yummy!

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
