Honey and Sea Salt Ice Cream

I’ve always loved the idea of making my own ice cream, but frankly I can’t justify spending over £300 on an ice cream maker, and I don’t have a big enough freezer to use the ones where you put the bowl in the freezer. So I was destined to having to buy ice cream but…

King Prawn and Garlic Linguine

I first tried this dish about 15 years ago when I was on a family holiday in Florida. We went to a pizza place near where we were staying, and I saw this on the menu. They gave us the most enormous serving, it could have probably fed 3 people! This is such a quick…

Watermelon And Feta Salad

Usually i’m not on for mixing sweet and savoury things together, I find it weird. Like pineapple on pizza WTF!!! Anyway, I’ve seen this on multiple Instagram and Pinterest pictures, and thought it looked so summery and pretty, so decided to make it… and do you know what… it’s really good. Perfect for a hot…

Beef Massaman Curry

This fall-apart beef dish is the curry you’ve been missing in your life. No exaggeration, it’s so rich and warming, and frankly my life is better for trying this dish!!! I made this on the hob but you could easily do this in a slow cooker or in the oven, and make the paste ahead of…

Prosecco Ice Lollies

There’s only one thing better than a cold glass of prosecco… and that’s a glass of prosecco in ice lolly form! This is a great adult summer treat, perfect for warm summer evenings sat outside, and they look so pretty, I nearly didn’t want to eat mine… nearly! Ingredients Summer fruits, chopped Prosecco Ice lolly…

Mary Berry’s Double Chocolate Cookies

This recipe is from Mary Berry’s Baking Bible, and quite frankly the book is my Bible. It’s great for new bakers as well as experienced ones. And as it’s Mary you know the recipes will be goooood. These will be soft when they first come out of the oven but will harden up, so don’t…

Bruschetta

Bruschetta, to me is perfect dinner party food. You make them into small canapés, or a starter, or part of a tapas style menu. They are so versatile, you could put practically anything as the topping. As long as you choose good quality bread and olive oil you can’t really go wrong. Below is the…

Summer Ice Cubes

Believe it or not guys, it’s the summer. I know the dark grey clouds and the fact it’s pissing it down don’t make it seem like it’s summer, but apparently it is. Sometimes I wish I lived in a country where you actually got a summer, not 2 weeks of hot weather, and than rain…

Cheesy Leeks and Mushrooms

This is my fave alternative to cauliflower cheese. It’s perfect with a roast dinner and is really easy to make, plus is bloody delicious. If anyone is bored with the usual accompaniments then this is a must to make. Serves: 6 Prep: 10 minutes Cooking time 50-60 minutes Ingredients 1 onion (red or white) finely…

Banoffee Pie

So I have a confession to make, this is really a cheat’s version, no effort is involved in making this… whatsoever. It just so happens this my Father-in-Law’s favourite, so I make it quite regularly. Prep time: 15 minutes Cooking time: 15seconds to melt butter Serves: 10 Ingredients 75g Digestive Biscuits, crushed 25g melted butter…
