Hello,  I'm Emma

and I am the food and flavour lover that created this Blog. I'm so pleased you're here!

 

Have a nosey around for some recipes that I find delicious (even if I do say so myself) and some meal inspiration. Or feel free to look at photos of food and drool. I do that a lot, probably too much.

 

I like to think that this is a balanced mixture of health and indulgence. That's how life should be, right?

Lime and Coconut Cupcakes

2020 has been the year that I have found my obsession with margaritas at home. Like most people, I am missing sitting in a restaurant, ordering cocktails and food. Wahaca was always the place that we would eat delicious Mexican food and try every marg on the cocktail menu. Now, making them at home is the only way to enjoy that life.


So, having said that. We always have plenty of limes in the fruit bowl, and i figured it was time to make something with limes that didn't contain tequila.


Introducing, lime and coconut cupcakes. Light, fluffy and fruity.

Makes 12
