Recipe: Gin and Lime Truffles

Brace yourselves, you're in for a treat. My hosts for while I'm on work experience have allowed me into their kitchen to bake up some sweet treats, including honeycomb, creme and brûlée and these.

After watching Sweets Made Simple on Friday Night we set out to get the ingredients for the gin and lime truffles the next day - doubling the recipe naturally. And simple it is indeed.

Travel: The Tower, Aylsham

Let me just set the scene. A few weeks ago I was bed-ridden with tonsillitis (hence the lack of posts) and dad asked me whether I fancied a little break in Norfolk the following weekend before my work experience began in London. Obviously I said yes, hoping and praying my tonsillitis would be gone by this point.

Recipe: Butterfly Cupcakes

The simplest of recipes and one that brings a massive dose of nostalgia as I think the last time I made these I was very young. I made them for my friend's little sisters and they went down a treat.

London's Calling: Theatre and Jackson + Rye

After finding some cheap tickets for the National Theatre production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, mum and I decided that was a good enough excuse for his to take a little trip down to London.
I didn't realise how hot it was actually going to be, blimey, I was glad to be moving from one air conditioned place to the next.
Once we'd collected our tickets from the box office we originally set off in search of The Breakfast Club but on the way I saw Jackson & Rye which I believe somebody had recommended to me so I decided we should go there instead. Rightly so, the inside was nicely laid out with the bar area at the forefront so you could see them making the cocktails, something we didn't end up trying.
