my favourite dessert recipes

Now I don’t mean to brag, but I can make a mean dessert.

There is just something so comforting about getting into the kitchen, bringing out my baking supplies and creating something magical. I love when people get excited to try my baking and making people smile when they take a bite. Baking is one of the things I do whenever I am feeling anxious or overwhelmed and it never fails to make me feel better.

While I love experimenting with new recipes and making something different there are a few recipes that I love to make over and over (including the two that Nigel said he married me for).

Disclaimer: Most of these recipes are not healthy (actually I don’t think any of them are), but I am a strong advocate of treating your self every once and while and that life isn’t really life without a little bit of dessert.

  1. Salted Caramel Bars
    Salted Caramel Buttery Crumb Bars - Easy, soft, buttery bars that just melt in your mouth! The salted caramel makes them so irresistible!!!

    Now this is one of those recipes that Nigel married me for, and whenever I need to bring a dessert anywhere this is what he (very loudly) suggests. I also love this recipe for a multitude of reasons including how easy it is but also I have yet to meet anyone who doesn’t like these.

  2. Cookies and Cream Cookies
    Cookie chunks and chocolate are the perfect mix ins to these Chocolate Chip Cookies and Cream Cookies!

    I first made these for Nigel for his birthday many moons ago and since then it has been his favourite cookie. I love how it mixes the things you love about cookies and cream with the wonderfulness of cookies and they are so soft and gooey.

  3. Salted Toffee Cookies
    Chewy Salted Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

    There is not much more I love than Skor bits and these cookies are chock full of them, alongside the delicious chocolate chips and fresh salt crushed on top. Note: The blog that I originally found this recipe on doesn’t seem to work anymore so I found this other blog that copied it and the formatting isn’t the best.

  4. Mini Pavlova’s

    This is such a wonderful spring and summer dessert especially topped with fresh berries. I love the crack that they make when you bring your fork through them and how they then melt in your mouth. I also love that these Pavlova’s are individual which makes it a lot easier to serve.



So there you have it, some of my favourite desserts to make and share with friends and family. What are your go-to recipes? What should I make in the kitchen today?
