Biscuit Porridge Bowls for a camping adventure!

Biscuit Porridge Bowls for a camping adventure!

Scotland is one of the only places where wild camping (that’s pitching your tent outwith an organised campsite) is allowed. We took a trip to the east coast with some friends earlier on in the year, and got bitten hard by the camping bug (legend has it that there’s no midgies on the east…so there was no danger of any…

Biscuit Wedding

Biscuit Wedding

I was never one of those little girls that dreamed of a fairytale wedding. Whilst going through boxes of old things recently, I found one of my childhood story books: The Tough Princess. It made me smile…and explained a lot! In the story, princess Rosamund alludes betrothal to ride bikes, shoot arrows and pretty much do whatever she damn wants! Michael…

Purple Pansy to Coastal Mist Ombre Shed. Using Cuprinol Garden Shades

Parma Violet Ombre Dream Shed DIY

If you follow my instagram (and instagram stories now, too!) you’ll have seen a preview snap of my ombre dream shed. You’ll also know that I’m pretty partial to a spot of DIY. I have a fairly endless list of things that I’d like to make and do for our home and there’s been a lovely response to the projects…

Inside the Biscuit Tin – Home Tour

Inside the Biscuit Tin – Home Tour

Last year, Mollie Makes magazine got in touch to commission some photos of our home for a feature about my work and I. I’d always wondered about the home tours that you see featured in magazines. I mean- they always look SO good. Surely nobody’s house is that neat all of the time, right? We’ve collected a lot of stuff over the…

Oor Wullie Bucket Trail – Biscuit Break Wullie

Oor Wullie Bucket Trail – Biscuit Break Wullie

Dundee will always have a special place in my heart.  One of the cool things that I noticed about Dundee when I moved there to study at DJCAD way back in 2003, was the public art that inhabits the city centre. It’s primarily bronze, with little nods to Dundee’s cultural history & achievements with a wee bit of fun on…

Recipe: Nikki’s Unicorn Shortbread

I baked these magical little biscuits for a friend visiting last week. They’re super easy to make and quick enough to pop in the oven an hour before your pals knock the door. I made the dough the night before- which took me about 15 minutes- and then popped it in the fridge ready to freshly bake in the morning….

#BiscuitWedding

It’s no secret that I’ve probably been neglecting my blog a bit lately (my last update was in February!) and I thought it was about time that I shared the reason why. In a month’s time, we’re getting married! Mr Biscuit proposed to me back in August last year, and we decided to jump in and start organising our wedding for…

Learning to make Tortellino in Bologna, Italy

Foodie Fun in Bologna – Pasta School!

    We had an early start for our second day of fun in Bologna. Opening the shutters to let in the cool morning air, we got dressed for the slightly cooler (weather-wise) day ahead and left our room to grab some breakfast. The morning spread at Hotel Touring was just what I needed to set me up for the…

Foodie Fun in Bologna – Blue Skies & Gelato

Foodie Fun in Bologna – Blue Skies & Gelato

After visiting Italy for the first time last Autumn, I knew that I had to return. When the Hotel Touring, a small family run hotel in Bologna asked Kat Molesworth (of Blogtacular fame) and I if we would like to visit them in Italy’s foodie capital- I didn’t think twice! Flights from London to Bologna are quite frequent and fairly inexpensive…

Custard Cream Biscuit Freakshake by Nikki McWilliams

Biscuit Freakshakes

Inspired by Australian cafe, Pâtissez‘s totally awesome and rather monstrous milkshakes (quite aptly nicknamed, “Freakshakes” which we’ll be calling them from now) we had a go at making our own. There’s nothing we like more than getting creative with our favourite biscuits- especially when the results are edible! We invented 3 varieties- the first (pictured above and below) is our Custard…
