Peach Melba Ice Cream – An All-In-One Frozen Take on a Classic Dessert

Peach Melba Ice Cream

This summer has been so hot and dry, we’ve been eating a lot of ice cream. As is often the case, there’s nothing quite so good as homemade. This peach melba ice cream is quite simple to make. It only requires six ingredients and it uses the no churn method. The base is made with peaches and cream and then swirled with fresh raspberry sauce. It’s surprisingly sophisticated, perfect for summer and quite delicious.

Raspberry Granola Parfait and Fibre – Are You Getting Enough?

Raspberry Granola Parfait

As a wholefood blogger, I’m well aware of the importance of fibre in our diet, both soluble and insoluble. However, Public Health England have recently come up with a recommendation that adults should consume at least 30g of fibre daily. It turns out, apparently, that the average intake is only 18g. Oh dear! Arla Fibre to the rescue and a quick but effective breakfast ‘recipe’ from me for raspberry granola parfait.

Who wants to be stuck in the kitchen slaving over a hot stove in the summer? Not me. But I do like a summery bake or two. These raspberry rose friands are a good compromise. They’re full of summer flavour, quick to prepare and only take twenty minutes in the oven.

How to Make Kombucha – a Healthy Sparkling Fermented Beverage

How to Make Kombucha

When I first met CT, I was intrigued by the bowls of bubbling brown liquid lying around his flat. They had a pleasant fruity tangy aroma emanating from them and were covered with what looked to be some kind of large flat mushroom. This was my introduction to kombucha.

Almond and Cardamom Rye Shortbread with Whisky Raspberry Cream

Last week, CT and I were somewhat shocked to find we’d been together for twenty years. How did that happen? To celebrate we both took the day off and went clambering around the Cornish coast. We also called in at the Canteen at Maker Heights. How could we resist the best food in those parts? There, sitting on the counter was a round of almond rye shortbread. Completely intrigued, I had to recreate it.

Raspberry and White Chocolate Flapjacks – Fast to Make and Easy to Eat

Raspberry and White Chocolate Flapjacks

As I was buying some bananas in the Co-op the other day, I noticed a pack of reduced price raspberries. I couldn’t resist. They were fine, but not quite enticing enough to eat as they were; they looked as though they needed to be used quickly. The fastest thing I know how to bake are flapjacks. In next to no time, I had a plate of warm raspberry and white chocolate flapjacks.

Red Berry and Coconut Smoothie Bowl

Berry Coconut Smoothie Bowl

As some of you will know, smoothies are a regular breakfast item in the Tin and Thyme household. They are a tasty way of packing in a lot of healthy nutrients and generally keep us going for hours. It was not until I had a conversation with some fellow food bloggers yesterday, however, that I heard about the smoothie bowl. As soon as the concept was explained, I realised that smoothies in a bowl were quite a different thing to smoothies in a glass.

Raspberry Syllabub with Chardonnay Vanilla Biscuits – Summer in a Glass

Raspberry Syllabub with Chardonnay Vanilla Biscuits

Yesterday, I made the most delicious dessert I’ve ever eaten. Well that may be a slight exaggeration, but this raspberry syllabub with Chardonnay vanilla biscuits was up there with the best. It was cool and creamy, but warming at the same time with bursts of intense summery tartness and accompanied by crisp vanilla biscuits with fruity tones.  And it was all thanks to Lindeman’s.

Raspberry and White Chocolate Blondies

Brownies & Blondies | 14th August 2014 | By

Tart juicy raspberries work exceedingly well when combined with sweet vanillary white chocolate I’ve found and this combination has become a particular favourite. When I was tasked recently with finding a recipe to make from Baking Mad, I was looking for a picnic recipe for a little jaunt to the beach. As soon as I saw the recipe for white chocolate and raspberry brownies, I had to look no further.
