Biscoff Marshmallow Crumb Cake

Me again! Just that crazy chick who managed to schedule 2 guest posts on the same day :D

Anyway, this Biscoff Marshmallow Crumb Cake is one you definitely don’t want to miss! It is quite possibly, the softest cake I’ve ever made. Added to that the gooey marshmallows and caramel-y Biscoff flavours and you’re onto a winner!

Head on over to Reasons to Skip the Housework to get the recipe!! Continue reading

This is a post in conjunction with the Sainsbury’s SO Organic Project. I was compensated for the ingredients, but all opinions are my own. This post is very photo heavy, if you just want the recipe, scroll down to the bottom of this post!

You have no idea how excited I am to be bringing you this recipe today!

A few weeks ago I received an email asking if I wanted to participate in a project for Sainsbury’s (If you’re in the US, Sainsbury’s is one of the big 4 supermarkets in the UK). I had to pinch myself a few times, but then I realised it really was real and of course I wanted to participate! Continue reading

Apologies for my lack of post last week, I was sitting on the M25 in solid traffic…

Oh, how I hate that motorway 90% of the time.

It’s been a busy few weeks; all really good stuff and so exciting, but I’m getting to the point where I don’t know if I’m coming or going, I am just sooooo busy all of the time!!

However, I’m a grafter, so I just work my a** off every day, always have done, always will :) I’m a true believer that if you work hard, you’ll get to where you want to be!

Change of subject entirely… I graduate in less than 2 weeks! How did that come around so quick?!?! I’m excited to have a catch up with my friends, but other than that I just want it over, I detest standing up in front of people, even though I don’t have to do anything, but walk and then shake a guy’s hand, it’s the fact all those people will be watching :O :( – I’ll be the bright red, blotchy, anxiously-biting-my-nails one in the queue of people!

I am so glad it will be the last time I EVER have to deal with that place, I’ve blocked most of the crap out now, if I stop and really think I still get cross at how bad it was, but mostly I try and forget and focus on this blog and working hard every day to reach my goals. Continue reading

Homemade cherry jam is layered in moist and tender chocolate muffins to create this sweet and rich mini treat!

Chocolate Cherry Mini Muffins | Annie's Noms

Confession: These were meant to be Chocolate Cherry Mini Doughnut Muffins.

However, in my infinite wisdom, I filled the trays level and they ended up being muffins instead. Although I’m sure you don’t mind… means you get a bigger muffin and more chocolate… ;)

I also made my own jam for the first time and it was phenomenal. You totally need it in your life along with these muffins.

They’re kind of ugly, but ugly things usually taste out of this world – meatloaf, chilli, mac and cheese…. all delicious and comforting and all ugly as heck. Obviously there are some fabulous bloggers who seem to have almost godly talent with a camera, but if I took a picture of mac and cheese, it wouldn’t look like something you’d want to eat!  Continue reading

With just 4 ingredients you could have this delicious Salted Caramel Fudge! Melted chocolate is mixed with condensed milk and chocolate caramels to create a seriously naughty treat. Finished off with some sea salt; this fudge has that sweet and salty contrast that everyone loves!

It’s secret recipe club time again! It still amazes me how quickly it comes round every month!!

This month I was assigned Rhonda’s blog The Kitchen WitchOf course, I headed straight to the recipe page and somehow lost an hour just looking and drooling at Rhonda’s recipes!

I also headed over to read about Rhonda and found her instantly likeable! I felt like I was reading about a myself! Totally comfortable in her own skin and says what she thinks – i.e the exact same as me!

She’s also traveled Europe on a Harley and is an avid motorcycle rider! I would love to travel across Europe by road, none of that flying stuff – I want to see and experience everything!

Wow, this week has been AMAZING!!!

Possibly one of the best weeks ever. It’s been crazy busy and I’ve hardly stopped, but I’ve been so excited I haven’t been able to stop and relax!

I’ve had 3 very exciting blog opportunities this week including some big UK companies! It’s all so exciting and I have lots of recipe developing to do this weekend! I cannot wait to get started :D

I also had my first meeting on Monday for my freelance CAD job and cracked on with the drawing on Tuesday. I hadn’t done CAD for a while, but I definitely hadn’t missed the headaches it gives me haha!

It felt so good to be earning and doing something new! Continue reading
