Double Chocolate Cheesecake with fresh strawberry sauce and creamy chocolate drizzle

This double chocolate cheesecake with fresh strawberry sauce is such a useful recipe to have. We all need to know desserts that are great for many occasions, such as Valentines day or for when families gather for the holidays. This tastes almost like a mousse cake but is creamier. This is food of the heavens,…

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. This watermelon water with ginger and lime is perfectly refreshing. I’m slightly obsessed by it! No small feat for someone who only…

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

Homemade cocktails are one of life pleasures. Ones with herbary and sugar round the rim, classic ones in Martini glasses, ones that sparkle with bursting Champagne bubbles, but mainly, for me, quick and easy fruity cocktails like this Raspberry and Blackberry Frozen Yogurt Daiquiri. This summer berry cocktail one is delicious, creamy and semi frozen.…

Summer fruit sticks

This is a fun and delicious way to eat more fruit and make a healthy or healthier dessert or an exciting snack. The summer fruit sticks I have prepared are raspberry crumble, apple s’mores and banana brittle. Chocolate and fruit are a brilliant combination and kids always love them. These fruit on sticks recipes will…

Pimm’s Ice-lollies

Adult flavoured ice lollies are a perfect way to chill this summer. These Pimm’s ice-lollies are so refreshing and make a quirky way to start a cool summer gathering. Personally, I like alcohol in pretty much anything! I really do love a Pimm’s but find it is never quite cold enough, not like an icy gin…

Eton Mess Ice-cream Cake

It’s warming up and the strawberries are tasting divine. It’s the season of Eton Mess! My girlie Charlotte is passionate about Eton Mess. So, I’ve mixed it up a bit and come up with a scrumptious Eton Mess Ice-cream cake. Yes, an Eton Mess Cake! Made from ice-cream! It makes a wonderful family summer dessert. As ideas…

Halloumi and Watermelon salad

I had a fantastic Halloumi and Watermelon salad in Sydney on a recent trip. I jotted down what I tasted and changed a few things as I munched up. It’s a quick and easy recipe and healthy lunch idea. There are salty ingredients (like the halloumi and olives) that are balanced by sweet ingredients (such…

Frozen Honey Yogurt with Lemon curd puddles topped with Lemon snow

This Frozen Honey Yogurt is an incredibly refreshing sweet dessert. I’ve added some lemon curd ‘puddles’ and topped with ‘lemon snow’ (essentially a sharp lemon sorbet). It’s a celebration of lemon! Many people search for a cold or no bake lemon dessert and this certainly fits the bill. It’s great for dinner parties because it…

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 lemon curd cheesecake with lavender and white chocolate is possibly my best dessert creation yet. It’s definitely up there in my top 5. The smooth, sweet creaminess of the no-bake topping with the tanginess of the lemon curd swirls. Then you have the snap of the white chocolate on the crumbly buttery biscuit base…

Summer berry Eton Mess with passion fruit cream

How do you make Eton Mess in a new and exciting way? We are huge fans of summer berry dessert recipes and also adore passion fruit cream so the summer berry Eton mess with passion fruit cream was born! It is unbelievably satisfying with summer berries bursting with juice, lots of crunchy and chewy meringue…

Tangy egg sandwich filling

This is my healthy tangy egg sandwich filling recipe. You could use this filling in interesting ways. Some ideas are to add potatoes for a tangy egg potato salad, or use it to fill up Vol Au Vents for an exciting canapé. It’s a really easy and versatile filling recipe! I love eating it with…
