Pecan Pie Coconut Fudge

I reject the idea of seasonal flavours. I get it, I’ve done it myself.  Just the taste of crisp apples reminds me of fall, at Christmas I can’t get enough of peppermint and a red velvet cheesecake or cupcake is the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, but I reject the idea that certain foods can […]

Delicious Kernow Trail

As part of our quest to see the UK this year, Beardy Husband and I really wanted to make sure we saw Cornwall.  We’ve heard from many people, both friends and family, that it’s one of the most beautiful parts of the UK and well worth a visit – in fact, the popularity of holiday […]

Review: Sea Salt Sweet and Ale and Pretzel Soft Caramels

White Chocolate and Lavender Fudge

Unfortunately, it was  rough week in the Beardy household.  When we were over in Ireland, unfortunately, Beardy Fiance’s grandmother passed away.  It was a tough time for him – she had lived with his family while they were growing up and he was quite close to her.  It led to a fairly long and emotional […]

Vanilla Bark

Apparently bark is not a thing in Ireland.  When I made the ice cream bark a couple weeks ago, Beardy Fiance was shocked and delighted that such a thing existed and immediately demanded more.  So I racked my brain as to how I could put a slightly different twist on things.  All I could think […]
