Large Shortbread Wreath with White Chocolate, Cranberries and Pistachio

Shortbread makes a great edible gift for foodies at Christmas time. I’ve made this large shortbread wreath with white chocolate, cranberries and pistachio.

I’d like to think these delightful strawberry and pistachio cupcakes are a bit like the French bob. Super fashionable from time to time but still…

Kicking Chicken Lickin’ Salad

Think of this as the best spicy healthy Coronation Chicken Salad recipe. It is an easy recipe and makes a delicious and healthy lunch, picnic salad or alfresco supper. It’s a great recipe to use leftovers, whether it’s chicken or turkey. The textures are wonderful with soft chicken, bites of juicy peppers and sweetcorn snuggling…
