The Perfect Easter Bake!

Easter Lemon & White Chocolate Slices from the Dairy Diary

Easter Lemon & White Chocolate Slices

ANY excuse to get me in the kitchen baking, and as you can imagine I have been waiting for Easter to come around this year so that I can make the perfect Easter bake – Easter Lemon & White Chocolate Slices from the 2021 Dairy Diary – delicious.

I first fell in love with this recipe when we were on location at the photography shoot – lemon curd, white chocolate, shortbread and coconut all in a cheesecake… what’s not to like?!

I think I almost ate the whole lot as Emily
isn’t a huge fan of cheesecake… madness!

It’s not often we show the ‘behind the scenes’ of what we do at Dairy Diary, to be honest we often forget to take a quick snap of what’s going on due to how busy we are year-round (we’re not complaining, thank you for keeping us busy!)

Here is a photograph, mid-shoot at the wonderful Steve Lee’s studio in London, we were so disappointed not to be able to visit last year, though our waistlines certainly weren’t too sad about it.

Hopefully, we can visit again soon and make the most of all the delicious food cooked for us very soon for the 2023 diary photography!

5 Restaurant-Style Recipes for Valentine’s Day at Home

5 Restaurant-Style Recipes for Two

No, I can’t believe its Valentine’s Day tomorrow either…

However, if anything, this past year has brought my partner and me closer than ever, and I am grateful for the endless cups of tea and the support he showed when things were difficult.

To express my appreciation, I am going to prepare a lovely restaurant-style meal for two, using delicious recipes from the cookbook Just For One Or Two.

Neither of us are starter-people, so for the main: Griddled Lamb with Fresh Pesto, served with soft and creamy celeriac mash, and wholesome ratatouille. Then for dessert: Lemon Posset topped with fresh juicy berries, one of his absolute favourites!

For more inspiration on how you can treat your loved one – which is not limited to Valentine’s Day! – take a look at our recipe collection, Restaurant-Style Meals for 2.

Win a copy of Just For One or Two

Of course, Valentine’s Day could not be celebrated properly without showing the love we have for our customers, so we are giving away a copy of the popular Just For One Or Two, which is full of perfect recipes for a restaurant-style dinner, at home.

Enter below by telling us how many recipes are found within the book. You can find the answer on Just For One Or Two’s page here.

Brand new and beautiful Dairy Diary Notecards

Dairy Diary Notecards

The joy of receiving real post


When was the last time you received a hand-written letter? I can’t even remember.

Nowadays, most correspondence is via text or social media, which can be speedy and easy for quick catch-ups and for making arrangements, but receiving a real letter brings far more joy.

A hand-written letter, or a message just to show that you care, can really lift someone’s day. This year, in particular, most people have had difficult situations to deal with and a simple piece of post is a welcome distraction.


Dairy Diary Notecards

We have produced a beautiful set of notecards – brand new for this year.

There are four different designs, each with a calm and uplifting image on the front, and cute matching stickers to stick on the back of the envelope.

These 20 notecards, envelopes and sticker sheet all come in a lovely box that also matches your Dairy Diary.
