rye cranberry muffins with oat and walnut topping

i decided to make these just a little bit healthier by using less sugar and adding honey, i replaced bleached white flour for organic rye flour.
i added whole fresh cranberries but dried ones would also work.

blackberry madeleines

these madeleines are so light and airy this recipe is from the Laduree cookbook and uses lemon zest and honey. i adapted it and used just one lemon and added a blackberry in each one,
i have made madeleines before but they were made differently and did not taste as nice these are so much better. you will never want to use another Madeleine recipe again.

halloween meringue bones pavlova with raspberry blood

these meringue bones are so easy to make and i think used on a pavlova they look so cool, im sure that it would go down well at a halloween party. i decided to make a hand too,
i made a raspberry sauce but decided to keep the lumps of fruit in for extra gore.
Halloween is one of the holidays that i don't really celebrate, as a child my brothers and i would dress up for trick or treat but i don't think Halloween is as popular here in England then it is in the states.
