You need to ensure that your content is pinnable. Dozens of elements go into creating pinworthy content, but in this tutorial, I want to share three quick instant ways to make your content pinnable.

Triple Chocolate & Orange Jaffa Cake No Churn Ice Cream

This ice cream is purely decadent, but you wouldn't expect any less, there's three types of chocolate and three flavors of orange. Chocolate and orange is my husband's favorite dessert flavor combination, so this ice cream got full marks from him. For my non-UK readers, a Jaffa cake is a type of spongy, soft cake-like biscuit with orange jam on top and covered in dark chocolate.

Decadent chocolate ice cream with jaffa cakes by Anyonita Nibbles

These little biscuits are cult classics in the UK. Everybody loves a Jaffa cake. Well, except me. I'm not down with the kids, and I hate dark chocolate. And unless it's in a glass, I don't like oranges either. But, if you're not like me, then you'll love this ice cream!

Jaffa cake ice cream by Anyonita Nibbles

I love making ice cream at home, we don't have an ice cream maker, so this is a no-churn, easy ice cream to whip up. Mine was set in about an hour, but your freezer might take longer, so you'll want to check on it periodically. The star of this ice cream is the flavor and the repetition of the orange and chocolate flavor in different ways. At the base of this ice cream is the decadent Atkins & Potts chocolate orange sauce that inspired this recipe.

If you've never made ice cream before, this is a really easy recipe to get started with. Don't be intimidated, there's nothing to it! Ice cream making is a lot of fun. And once you make your own, you'll think twice about paying those astronomical prices for the shop bought stuff.

Atkins & Potts Triple Chocolate & Orange Jaffa Cake Icae Cream by Anyonita Nibbles

I adapted this recipe from my smoothest, creamiest vanilla ice cream. Neither of those ice creams use milk, so you won't have to worry about the milk crystallizing and effecting your ice cream. By using double or heavy cream, you'll get a smooth, velvety texture every time.

Smooth and creamy chocolate ice cream by Anyonita Nibbles


For the triple chocolate & orange Jaffa cake no churn ice cream
1 teaspoon orange flavoring
2 egg yolks
35 grams sugar
50 grams chocolate
350 milliliters double cream (heavy cream)
mini Jaffa cakes
Atkins & Potts chocolate & orange dessert sauce

Triple Chocolate & Orange Jaffa Cake No Churn Ice Cream


  1. Pour the cream into a saucepan with the sugar, chocolate and chocolate sauce and bring to a gentle boil, stirring with a wooden spoon until all the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Put the egg yolks in a large bowl with the orange flavoring. Whisk together until incorporated.
  3. Slowly whisk a bit of the hot cream into the egg yolks, to temper the mix and to prevent the eggs from cooking.
  4. Pour the mix into a loaf tin, stopping halfway to press down some Jaffa cakes. Pour the remaining custard into the tin, over the existing Jaffa cakes and then top with more Jaffa cakes. Freeze and enjoy!

13 Must-try Artisan Foods for a Late Summer Garden Party

Before autumn comes creeping in, spend one last evening in the garden with friends & stunning artisan food!

Sweet Artisan Foods for a Late Summer Garden Party by Anyonita Nibbles
As summer draws to a close, I find myself spending as much time as possible in the garden, in a last ditch attempt to soak up as much sun as I can. I know that after the refreshing chilly weather of autumn with its mosaic of crimson and amber leaves, the cold will come with a vengeance. Daylight will begin to fade from the sky around 3:30 and within the hour, it will all be a thick blanket of ink.

An inexpensive craft or art project for toddlers using Tiger Feet  Party cookie cutters and potatoes!
Carving potato stamps from cookie cutters from Anyonita NIbbles

It doesn't matter how many toys your kid has, eventually, they'll get bored of them. All of them. And most likely this is going to happen at the most inopportune time. Like during the middle of an unbearable heatwave when it's too hot to be out in the sun at the middle of the day. That happened to us and here's how I dealt with it:

Gluten Free Pan-Fried Sirloin with Creamy Mushroom Tarragon Duxelle

Mushrooms and steak, one of my absolute favorite meals. I love how down to earth this dish is and the flavors work so well together because mushroom, tarragon and steak go together because the flavors of each can be bridged together. A flavor bridge is one of the basic formulas when developing recipes. The flavor bridge dictates that if A goes with B and B goes with C and C goes with D, then A will go with D, too.

So the flavor bridge in this dish is: 
Tarragon goes with mushrooms.
Mushrooms go with cream.
Cream goes with steak.
So, steak goes with tarragon.
