Chewton Glen

It isn’t often you find yourself sleeping in the wilds when you’ve booked into one of the country’s most luxurious hotels. But then this one is a little bit special…     No doubt you’ve heard all about it, nestled at the edge of the New Forest, a luxury retreat to rival the best, but if not, it’s worth getting acquainted.

Shrove Tuesday Pancakes

After a hectic few weeks followed by a special getaway as a family I’m only just catching up on here with a throwback to Shrove Tuesday.   We’ve always made a point of enjoying a traditional pancake feast on Shrove Tuesday to greet Lent, so when I woke up to an empty bed and a scribbled note on the pillow next to me, I wondered where my boy had…

Stow-on-the-Wold & Daylesford

Valentine’s Day can be a strange one.   To single boys and girls it’s probably just another frivolous day full of irritating reminders of what you’re missing. Or maybe not..

For others though it might mean another little date in the diary…

Sticky toffee puddings – with sticky toffee sauce

With two pregnancies behind me I jumped back into my running shoes on New Year’s day and I’m back on a strict paleo regime… well 95% of the time. We all need to break the rules now and then, or it’s just no fun. So I sneaked these sticky toffees in for a supper party while it’s still wintry enough to get away with them.  

Spiderweb shortcakes

We whipped these caramel shortbread spiderwebs up for our Halloween party last night and the little ones adored them. They’re easy to make yet look so effective – a perfect bit of baking to do with the children the night before Halloween. Equipment: 12 cupcake cases – silicone work best, but paper ones will do. Oven: 160 fan/180c/Gas Mark 4 Serves: 10-12 THE…

Pumpkin carving

If you’re planning a Halloween celebration, nothing gets you into the spirit like carving pumpkins. We woke at the crack of dawn this morning to prepare for our annual Halloween haunt that we’re throwing tonight, and amidst the cooking, baking, carving, decorating and looking after babies, our very noisy house was in a state of perfect anarchy. Outside a thick blanket of fog had…
