No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

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.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie


  1. Try using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.
  2. For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.
  3. 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!
  4. You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great make ahead dessert.


  1. Blackcurrant Cheesecake Trifles from Lavender and Lovage
  2. Caramel Amaretti Cheesecake Cups from Jam and Clotted Cream
  3. Chocolate Honeycomb Salted Caramel Cheesecake from Jam and Clotted Cream
  4. Strawberry Honeycomb Cheesecake Sundae from Jam and Clotted Cream
  5. No Bake Easy Cookie Dough Cheesecake from Kerry Cooks

This April my favourite TV cook Mary Berry has just launched a brand new range of homewares and I've got a really easy Easter inspired competition for you to enter to be in with a chance of winning the range (which includes a cake stand, cake plates, cake forks and a set of two mugs).

Carrot & Zingy Lime Cupcakes

More about the competition below but first I want to tell you about these fab Carrot and Zingy Lime Cupcakes with a Cream Cheese Frosting which I've made for the long Easter weekend.

Carrot & Zingy Lime Cupcakes

The cupcakes use a melting method, so it's as easy as putting the butter, sugar and syrup in a pan, melting it over a low heat and stirring in the rest of the ingredients. The frosting is my super simple cream cheese frosting with some shop bought sugar carrots to decorate on top - of course you can make your own if you want to. The lime zest really makes these cupcakes and you could always sprinkle some extra zest on top of the icing for extra zing! Read on for the recipe and how to enter the competition....

    Chocolate Easter Eggs & Bunnies from M&S

    Easter Eggs from Marks and Spencers

    M&S recently asked us if we'd like to try some of their Easter Eggs from the 2017 range. Err...yes please, it's a hard job but somebody has to do it! 😋😋😋

    As you can imagine the kids were delighted when the delivery man arrived on our doorstop with this lot and they wasted no time in ripping open the packaging and tucking in.

    Here's what we thought....

    Bennet Bunny (£16)

    Easter Eggs from Marks and Spencers

    A HUGE life size Swiss Chocolate Bunny weighing in at a whopping 900g. This would easily be enough chocolate for 2 or 3 kids! The chocolate is lovely and creamy and I'm afraid to say Mr Bennet Bunny lasted less than 24 hours in this house, thanks to the kids and their friends from around the village (they seemed to descend on my house once word had got around we had a giant chocolate bunny in residence).

    It really is very big so it's perfect to give as a family present, or alternatively you could just sit in a corner eating it's body parts one by one. I thought the ears tasted the best.
    Mr Bennett Bunny

    Fruit and Nut Milk Chocolate Lattice Egg (£12)

    Easter Eggs from Marks and Spencers

    This beautiful lattice egg was my particular favourite and at £12 seemed quite reasonable for it's size and contents. There were pistachio's, hazelnuts and almonds, as well as golden raisins and sour cherries  - it felt like I wasn't being too naughty eating it. This one got a big thumbs up from me!

    Dark Chocolate Quirky Bunny (£10)

    Dark Chocolate Quirky Bunny

    This Dark Chocolate Quirky Bunny is one for the adults! I LOVE dark chocolate and I particularly love the gold lustre this bunny is covered in. We devoured this after a meal with friends whilst the kids were safely tucked up in would have been wasted on them!

    Thank you to Marks and Spencer's for sending these over!

    Disclosure: I received 3 chocolate eggs/bunnies in return for a review. All thoughts are my own.

    Shake Up UK Coffee Week with Kahlua Espresso Martini

    Shake Up UK Coffee Week with Kahlua Espresso Martini
    The Espresso Martini is one of the UK’s best-selling cocktails and with UK Coffee Week just around the corner (10th-16th April), Kahlua is giving you the perfect excuse to indulge in your favourite cocktail.

    As an official sponsor of UK Coffee Week, Kahlua will be donating 10p from every Espresso Martini sold in participating bars to Project Waterfall throughout the week. So swap your usual latte for a Kahlua Expresso Martini and help donate to a fantastic cause at the same time. Now in its 7th year, UK Coffee Week is a nationwide fundraising campaign that takes place in thousands of coffee shops and bars across the country with 100% of the donations going to Project Waterfall, an initiative dedicated to bringing clean water facilities to coffee growing communities.

    Kahlua, the original coffee liqueur and official spirit sponsor of UK Coffee Week, is extremely proud of its heritage and is delighted to be involved in the initiative which helps give back to the coffee-growing communities which help to make Kahlua what it is today.

    Adam Boita, Head of Marketing at Pernod Ricard UK explains: “It can take up to 6 years to get the perfect coffee beans for Kahlua’s coffee liqueur – that’s a long time and a lot of hard work and devotion from the growers in Veracruz, Mexico. That’s why we’re thrilled to be working with UK Coffee Week to support the coffee growing community”

    You can order a Kahlua Espresso Martini at any of the following participating bars: Las Iguanas, Be at One and Giraffe. Don’t forget to share photos of your cocktail on social media using #CocktailYourCoffee

    Creamy Cider Braised Sausages

    Creamy Cider Braised Sausages

    Whether sizzling away in a spitting hot pan or served freshly charred from a summer barbeque, sausages are a comforting staple of many homes up and down the country. We certainly love sausages in this house, so when MOR contacted us to see if we’d like to try out their new range of lower fat sausages of course we said yes!

    MOR have been carefully crafted to be just as succulent, juicy, and utterly delicious as everyone's favourite pork sausages, while also introducing exciting new flavours that bring something just a little bit different to the dinner table. Each of the four unique MOR recipes blend high-quality British meat with nutritious vegetables, fragrant herbs, and delicate spices, creating lower-fat sausages that taste absolutely fantastic.

    With flavours such as Mediterranean Chicken, Moroccan Spiced Pork, Pork & Lentil and Pork, Beetroot &  Bramley Apple, MOR can be served with everything from mashed potato to pasta and rice

    In this Creamy Braised Cider Sausage recipe I used the Pork, Beetroot and Bramley Apple Sausages, which are a blend of British pork, beetroot, Bramley apples, spinach, brown rice, caraway seeds, onion, black pepper and basil. As well as being very yummy they are also a great way of sneaking  those extra veggies into the kids too! The creamy cider sauce worked really well with the sausages but if you wanted to lower the fat even more just omit the double cream.

    MOR sausages


    1. If you can't get hold of MOR sausages (they are launching in Tesco today, 3rd April 2017), then use another good quality pork and apple sausage.
    2. Add some fresh spinach or frozen peas to the cider sauce 10 minutes before serving to up the veggie content.
    3. This recipe is easily doubled and leftovers can be frozen.
    4. Serve with Sweet Potato Mash with extra veggies on the side.


    1. Slow Cooker Sausage Casserole from Jam and Clotted Cream
    2. Fruity Sausage Curry from Jam and Clotted Cream
    3. Sausage Noodle Stir Fry from Jam and Clotted Cream
