My sister makes homemade chocolate peanut butter cups every year around Valentine's Day. They are the perfect treat - decadent and sweet. If you make them yours

A very old family friend of ours came to tea recently and brought home made roti. She does this every once in a while and we always love it when she does.

I got hooked on mince pies for the holidays a few years ago and have been making them every since. I usually use a recipe by Tess Ward for Mince Pie Pop Tarts with a few adaptations.

Petworth Pudding. Ever heard of it? Not many people have. My sister and I first came across it in Houston and a little cafe called Te House of Tea.

While the beginning of summer is filled with delicious stone fruit and berries, the end brings tomatoes. Of all the varieties available my favorite are the ones that are dry farmed.

London is my favorite city, hands down.  There is so much to do and see, so much history everywhere you look.  Eating in London, however, can be expensive and not very good.  My sister and I tried a bunch of new restaurants this time in addition to going back to some old favorites.  Our home base was in South Kensington, but many of these are all over the city.  If you have any favorites of your own that you are willing to sha...
