The Great British Bake Off with Stork



Summer holidays is always bedlam in our house, but it does always mean the start of a new series of The Great British Bake Off – and that’s definitely a reason to be happy!

This year I’m joining in (although without the stress and eagle eyes of Paul and Mary watching over me) and baking along to the Bake Off in partnership with Stork.

Cheese & Onion Pie


Cheese & Onion Pie 030


This has to be one of the very best things to come out of my kitchen – you may have to save me from a Cheese & Onion pie addiction!

I have a great friend, Dor who shared a Cheese & Onion pie with a great group of ladies recently and I have dreamt about it ever since, plus with Father’s Day approaching and knowing my Dad loves this pie as much as I do I knew I had to give it a go.

Just a little dose of Valentines inspiration for this quick and easy starter or treat to share with a loved one (or indeed if they don’t like cheese aka Mr C, just to eat on your own!)

You will need:

1 x Camembert cheese, either small or large.
