Watermelon water with ginger and lime

It’s time to rehydrate. I need it. My liver has been through an endurance test through the festivities and my skin has been lightly smoked by our living room fire for weeks now.

Cobb Salad Pizza

Every now and then, it absolutely has to be a homemade pizza. When I’m craving a delicious pizza it also means I’m craving sociable meal time. Social, because we all sit around the table rolling out our own bases and loading our individual pizzas with a whole range of delicious toppings. But a Cobb Salad…

Strawberry and Pistachio cupcakes

My love affair with cupcakes lives on. Even tho’ fashion has changed. After cupcake mania, I think cake pops were followed by flavoured meringues which have made way to free-from bakes. 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…

Raspberry and Blackberry Frozen Yogurt Daiquiri

This summer berry cocktail one is delicious, creamy and semi frozen.…

Frozen Honey Yogurt with Lemon curd puddles topped with Lemon snow

It’s this time of year in England when you may be warmed in springlike sunshine, or equally it could snow. Either is possible in the space of a week. My frozen honey yogurt dessert represents the weather in March. Honey sweetened yogurt looks towards the summer, sharp lemon snow suggests winter still lingers.

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…

lemon curd cheesecake with lavender and white chocolate

This is possibly my favourite dessert creation yet. Definitely up there in my top 5. The smooth sweet creaminess of the topping with the tanginess of the lemon curd. Then you have the bite of the white chocolate on the crumbly buttery biscuit base and that elegant hint of lavender…
