I've Moved!...and some Oat and Choc Chip Cookies

Oat and Choc Chip Cookies

Those of you who follow me on Twitter know that we have been trying to move house for AGES (like on and off for 6 years!)....and it has finally happened WHOOPIE. We have bought a house in the same village in North Cornwall that has acres more space for the kids and a fab kitchen (all important for a food blogger). It has been a long drawn out process that has been going on since last summer....but we got there in the end!

Now that the house move is all done and dusted I really hope to get my blogging mojo back. I have some long overdue reviews pending (including a fab new Phillips Juicer) and lots of recipe ideas whizzing around in my head! I can't wait to get creating in my new kitchen.



The house, although only built 5 years ago needs a lot of finishing off work and the gardens need landscaping...plenty to keep hubby busy. We are also thinking about doing a bit of bed and breakfast when it is all finished, but thats a few years off at the moment.

The week before we moved I had a mammoth baking session using up part used packets of this and that. These cookies were one of the creations and kept us going while we were packing, moving (thankfully only a 2 minute drive from our old house) and unpacking.

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.
