BLUEBERRY AND CINNAMON OVERNIGHT PORRIDGE POTS

Blitzing blueberry, cinnamon and honey through yoghurt turns something quite boring into something very tasty.  We also added a few handfuls of whole blueberries; sliced kiwi fruit and pomegranate seeds for texture. You could even add some granola for an extra crunch. All the ingredients in this pot have fantastic health benefits – so it’s…

BREADED HALLOUMI AND PEPPER STRIPS

One of the sweetest memories my taste buds have had is the first time I enjoyed grilled Halloumi with peppers. It’s just a match that’s meant to be, as if they were soul mates. So really and truly, this could not go wrong. Its a brilliant idea for a vegetarian snack at a party but…

GINGER & CINNAMON SPICED MINI BAKED DOUGHNUTS

Taste-wise, these mini baked treats are not just your average doughnuts and they go perfectly with a cup of tea or coffee. The combination of ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon in this recipe is so comforting and enough to turn anyone into a tea and doughnut addict! These were really fun to make and all you’ll need…

BANANA AND HONEY CREAM CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES

This flavour combination takes me back to being in primary school when we used to make hot chocolate laced with banana and honey. It was always really good and I have remembered the taste of it since growing up. That’s why I decided to make something out of this delicious combination, so I thought who…

GOATS CHEESE WHOLEWHEAT DOUGH BALLS

There’s something quite satisfying about having dough balls as an alternative to garlic bread. For me, it’s the way you get to dip it in that lovely garlic butter yourself, lapping up as little or as much as you like. Like walkers salt and shake crisps, we get the pleasure of adding the salt ourselves then shaking it…

CHEDDAR AND FIG TOASTIES

I devour cheese with fig any time I see it on a cheese board! That mild sweetness goes so well with strong cheeses such as cheddar. I  also love making cheese toasties as a quick snack to enjoy when I’m either in a rush or feeling peckish late in the evening because dinner just wasn’t quite…

GREEN THAI-STYLE TURKEY SALAD

To add some healthier options to my weekly routine, I’ve decided to experiment with some new tasty salads over the next couple of weeks. This is a really simple salad to whip up fast, yet still really enjoyable with its fresh and zesty flavour. There’s no carbs here, but the protein from the turkey steak…

CHARCUTERIE CUPCAKES

  Recently, I have seen a few recipes where ham is used to make mini cups stuffed with fillings such as egg or vegetables; it inspired me to make these delicious charcuterie cups! I used a combination of my two favourite things – cured meat and cheese! You can try using any cured meat to…

SPICED RUM MINCE PIES

Around this time of year, everywhere you look you can find a mince pie. All sorts of shapes and sizes and different varieties too. They wont beat these spiced rum mince pies with a little hint of  dark chocolate! Perfect served hot with cream or even cold as nice bite to eat with a cup…

BAKED CAMEMBERT

When it comes to late night feasts, one of my favourite things to eat is some crusty bread dipped in gooey, baked Camembert! Common Camembert recipes include drizzling the cheese with olive oil and stuffing with rosemary or garlic, but I’ve been experimenting with some different types of ingredients. Firstly, I tried adding some slices…
