This step by step guide is how I created my picture book Celia’s Coeliac Story which is now being sold on Amazon Worldwide. I drew my illustrations on a watercolour pad, and used Aquatico watercolour pencils and a brush to colour. I then took pictures of each individual illustration, and edited using Photoshop, In design and Microsoft word.View Post
This banana and raspberry walnut loaf cake gets a big thumbs up from friends and family. I have made lots of versions of banana cake over the years, and love mixing with different ingredients like sultanas, or walnuts or other fruit. This time I made a banana and raspberry walnut loaf cake, and used brown soft sugar instead of demerara sugar which is why it is darker in colour. I love making loaf cakes as they are easy to carry when visiting friends.
Rizogalo, homemade rice pudding can be enjoyed hot or cold! This is a favourite sweet dessert in my family, especially my yiayia! This is nice for little ones too as it is soft and squishy! It is made with rice, mixed with water or milk and other ingredients such as cinnamon and raisins. Cinnamon and vanilla pods can be added to make it sweet. I used Arborio rice for this which is available in many supermarkets.
