Camp Bestival Planning

Mojitos for tomorrow night and in an ideal world all we would need is three things: Tequila, salt and limes, we wouldn't need anything else to get us through the weekend as no food would be required or remembered. However, we have children so that's not going to happen *sighs wistfully*.

Squash with wild rice

Traditionally squash are roasted or made into soup, this is a tasty alternative. I've used butternut squash which is around all year but when they're in season try different squash and give the wild rice a go, it's black with a nutty flavour. Great for Halloween or Bonfire Night

Rhubarb and Apple Oaty Crumble

This is a classic crumble with a flapjack twist, delicious with rhubarb and apple or any other fruit combination that fancy trying, gooseberries work really well so do pears and blackberries.

Sticky Toffee Cupcakes

Sticky Toffee Cupcakes are delicious served warm with ice cream and lashings of butterscotch sauce on the side on bonfire night or for a Halloween party

Great Pink Bake Off

Breakthrough Breast Cancer's first ever Great Pink Bake Off is Friday 18 October, so get baking, get your friends involved, eat, bake, share and raise money for this amazing charity.

Mini Victoria Sponge Cakes

A Victoria sponge is a sponge cake filled with jam and buttercream or fresh cream and then drenched in icing sugar.


Mushrooms, loads of them, different shapes, sizes and colours all over the woods.
