Iron Chef Shellie turns 7 today!

From humble beginnings, to the present day crazy cakes. What better way to celebrate than with a cake covered in donuts?


Veda is to blame for putting me onto this recipe. The first time I went to her house, she pulled her version of these fresh out of the oven, and they shortly made it to my mouth… 2… or maybe 3 slices down.


Just a reminder that RSPCA Cupcake day is on Monday!

Another year has passed, and I’m apparently a year older according to the universe. Am I any wiser than this time last year? Who knows; let’s take a stab in the dark and say, yes.
I decided to make a stack of pancakes to celebrate, because why have cake when you can have pancakes?!


This quick and easy recipe makes great edible gifts at Christmas.

Christmas treat don’t get anymore simpler than this!

Not only are they super easy to make, they look super cute too.


Another cute culinary gift you can give, are these mini brownies, smothered with ganache and topped with candy canes. You can make them cupcake size, or mini cupcake size I have done here.


Nope, not a typo. These cookies have chickpeas in them.

A WHOLE can of chickpeas.

They are incredibly moreish, and to be honest, I’d prefer a batch of these over normal cookies!


The cake I made for my Dad’s 60th. Checkerboard inside, with a working clock movement on the top. My most insane cake yet!


Why make lots of cookies, when you can make one giant one in a skillet?

Add ice-cream and a chocolate drizzle sauce, and you’ll have the ultimate indulgence!
