Strawberry Danish braid


I’m back! I am inspired, re-adjusted an very excited to get back into blogging because I sure have missed it. I’ll tell you all about what I’ve been up to later in the week but for now I am here to share something that as I bit into it I thought ‘it’s like biting into […]

Baked beignets


Last week I got to do something I had wanted to do for a very very long time. Ever since I started Claire K Creations back in 2010, I have wanted to attend a ProBlogger conference and meet Darren Rowse, the man behind the book ProBlogger which started me off all those years ago. I’m […]

Triple chocolate brownies with pecans


Would you laugh at me or think me a little nuts if I said that until recently I still had a stash of Easter eggs? It’s not a lie. You see I received my usual haul of eggs this year but as I was breastfeeding and Ollie doesn’t like chocolate (that better change – can’t […]

Caramelised onion focaccia with olives


Will and I were driving home from the city on the weekend and I was happily singing along ‘so don’t act like it’s a bad thing to fall in love…’ to Justin Timberlake’s latest song when I had a thought. I turned to Will and said ‘how do they keep coming up with new songs?’ […]

Blue skies and cheeky babies

Blue skies

This is pretty much how the sky has been every day in the last week. On this particular morning I finally dragged myself out of bed before the boys and went for a solo walk before Will left for work. Last weekend we celebrated the pending wedding of my friend Doc with a bridal shower […]

Strawberry and basil muffins


Please don’t worry. I haven’t gone totally stark raving mad I promise. It all started when I thought I’d challenge myself to try something a little different for this month’s Secret Recipe Club post. I was going to make a dinner-type meal but then time got away from me. It was then I spotted lemon […]

Chocolate gingerbread muffins

Chocolate gingerbread muffins

Mother’s group has meant so many things to me. Meeting new friends is number one along with the support and encouragement we give each other which is just priceless. We meet once a week at one of our houses and it is one of the highlights of my week. Yet another reason I love Mother’s […]

Passionfruit Madeleines

Passionfruit Madeleines

Will is not all that happy about my collection of goodies in the kitchen. It has gotten to the stage that I sneak in cake tins and bowls and all manner of utensils and stash them away in the cupboards and draws. When they do make it out it’s ‘oh this no, mum gave it […]

Cinnamon pound cake


Mother’s Day has always been a special day but this year was the most special of all – my first as a mother. I had a wonderful day. Will was on baby duty the night before so I could wake well rested and would you believe Mr Ollie didn’t wake up all night (cheeky man!). […]

Paleo almond and dulce de leche thumbprints


My name is Claire and I love chocolate. Over the years my tastes have become more refined and mature (I’m making fun of myself in case you didn’t read the sarcasm) and I find the bitter, dark stuff tempting me more and more. Unfortunately, eating chocolate at the moment, has painful consequences for little Ollie. […]

Sourdough English muffins


I am lucky to have travelled as much as I have. I’ve covered quite a few continents in my 29 years but one place I have never visited is the Middle East. But, after being assigned to Chef in Disguise for this month’s Secret Recipe Club, I can at least say that I’ve had a […]

Orange passionfruit and blueberry muffins


Before I launch into today’s post I have to say… Happy Birthday to my little Sis! xx Did you have a hot cross bun for breakfast yesterday? I’m writing this post a couple of days ahead of time but I can probably say with no offence to my wonderful mother, that I had a slightly-burned […]
