Lemon Poppy Seed Biscuits {Recipe}

I often crave baking biscuits but its normally when I'm feeling a bit lazy and don't have any softened butter to hand.

At times like these a quick mix bickie recipe is a life saver, especially when all you need is a food processor to do all the hard work for you.

I found this Lemon and Poppy Seed biscuit recipe in the delightful Alice in Bakingland cookbook by Alice Arndell.  Alice, a finalist in New Zealand's Hottest Home Baker show, is a champion of real home baking as well as her local community. I found the book at the library and was instantly jealous of the gorgeous vintage styling and delicious sounding recipes. Alice also has a blog Alice in Bakingland where you'll find more of her recipes. It's definitely worth checking out.

Mum and dad had dropped off a big bag of home grown lemons last week and up until now they'd been serving as a charming still life arrangement on the dining table. 
It felt good to put them to use.  The finished biscuit is delight…

Back in the saddle of blogging

I'm back....with a new look, a new name and a new blog address.

I've been Di-licious Cupcakes, Life is Di-licious. I moonlighted for a while as Little Teapot. But now it's just simply Di-licious.
My new web home is
On Facebook you can find me at (some addresses are still hard to change).
I'll update all my other contact details over the coming weeks.
So why the break in transmission? Well, after accidentally blowing up my blog Life is Di-licious 12 months ago, I felt all at sea. Creatively, personally and emotionally.
I'll share more in the coming weeks but just really needed to get this announcement post out (before racing off to do school pick up).
It feels good to be back.
