Fusilli with chestnut mushrooms, leeks and mascarpone cheese

We love pasta, and have recently been trying out lots of new recipes πŸ™‚ You may have guessed from the picture that we didn’t use fusilli here, but instead went for some elk-shaped pasta that I found in Ikea (we love novelty pasta too, haha!). This is a simple but delicious dish that is perfect for a week night – if you’re making it veggie then make sure you use a veggie substitute for the Parmesan.

Lemon posset is one of those things that I’ve seen on loads of cookery shows, but have never got around to making – until now! It’s surprisingly easy to make and tastes delicious, so if you’re looking for something to make for friends I’d highly recommend it. The amounts here serve 2 people, but you could easily double up the quantities. Serve in some small glasses or ramekins (my UK followers might recognise these ones if you’ve ever eaten a Gu dessert – we’ve recycled the ramekins they came in!).

This is another project that I’ve made for my business, Less Grafting More Crafting – sorry for another cross-post, but I’m just so chuffed with this! 😊

We’ve been posting about this summer’s nautical trends on our blog and decided to design a project that you can make at the weekend. We were keen to do some fabric painting, and this is the result! It’s a DIY tutorial post so we take you through each step, and you can download the PDF template too. To see the full tutorial, click here. I’d love to hear what you think!
