Fish pie. Was exceedingly good! Although next time I won’t put vegetable stock in my sauce like Rosemary Conley suggests.

My first ever fish pie is in the oven.

I’m using a Rosemary Conley recipe with a couple of tweaks, i.e. using spring onions in the mash.

Pictures later if I can!

My first ever

coffee and walnut sponge has just come out of the oven!

It’s so light! I think I like this recipe. Can’t wait to make the buttercream. Cool, cake, cool!

These Strawberry Cheesecake Bites are simple and so, SO good! A low fat cheesecake filling is stuffed inside of hollowed out strawberries and then dipped into graham cracker crumbs. All the flavor of strawberry cheesecake and just a fraction of the calories. Perfect to fill in that sweet tooth at any time.Ingredients: 
4 oz of low-fat cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons of powdered sugar (depends on how sweet you want the filling)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
10-20 strawberries ( quantity is your choice )
1/4 cup of graham crackers crumbs
Instructions:Rinse strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry. Remove the top and clean out inside with a paring knife if necessary. I found most of the strawberries already had a nice hollow center so that step was not necessary. If you want to stand your strawberries upright ( like in the picture ) slice a bit off the bottom.
Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla with a mixer or by hand. Add cream cheese mix to piping bag ( you can use a Ziploc bag ) and fill strawberries. Once strawberries are filled dip the top in graham cracker crumbs. Devour and fall in love. Enjoy! You could also drizzle or dip strawberries in chocolate if desired.

This is basically the cake we’re having, except we’re having 2 tier and stacked rather than separated.
