The fast, easy way to get a sticky label off a jar
Have you ever struggled to get the label off a jar? Me too. In fact, I think there is some inverse relationship between the attractiveness of a jar and the stickiness of its label. That's to say, the more likely you are to want to keep a jar for repurposing...

Chocolate cakes with citrus cheesecake centres
Cupcakes - so 2007, right? Depends who you ask. Personally, I've made about 50 in the last month, so I think they're quite 2015 too. They're brilliant if you're doing any kind of baking for charity  because they're so easy to portion and transport. And chil...

It's cold, and grey and the news everywhere is bleak. But before you rip open a chocolate bar and sob into your screen, there is a ray of light on the horizon. And you can get involved! This month sees the start of a series of fun workshops, demonstrations ...

Miso-roasted pumpkin
It's funny the things that stick in your head. For example, the sole thing I remember from the Queen's last visit to New Zealand (don't ask me when it was, I'm not that much of a royalist) is that she requested pumpkin to be served at a dinner at Huka Lodge...

Coconut, chocolate and vanilla cake
When I rule the world, I'm going to introduce a law banning vanilla-flavoured perfumes and all forms of fake vanilla extract. Real vanilla has such a beautiful, delicate scent, but it's been ruined by the synthetic variants wafting through a home near you. ...

Last Sunday my sister-in-law turned up on my doorstep with a huge chocolate cake, a tub of Zany Zeus creme fraiche and a jar of Fix and Fogg chocolate peanut butter . We anointed the cake with dollops of both - such a good activity on a winter Sunday aftern...

How to knit an egg cosy (and make fork pompoms)
One of the happiest winters of my life was spent in Whanganui, where my lovely friend Anna and I amused ourselves with sewing, cooking, art projects and soaking in the fire bath in our garden. If it sounds all a bit Little House On The Prairie, that's becau...

Five essential kitchen gadgets for less than $5
Have you seen Rhik Samadder's hilarious food gadgets testing series in The Guardian ? It's very good, not least because it confirms my prejudices that these fancy bits of kit are mostly bought by people who are afraid of cooking. I like ogling fancy kitchen...

Old-fashioned vegetable soup
Did you know that in some places they're not making journalism interns learn shorthand any more? I know, I'm shocked too. Instead of giving them a good grounding in Teeline, they're giving them magic recording pens that download interviews straight to a com...
