Lemon cheesecake ice cream (no-churn)

Doesn’t this just look like the perfect refreshing treat for a sunny day? Rich creamy cheesecake flavoured ice cream muddled with a tangy swirl of zesty lemon curd and studded with crunchy nuggets of biscuit. Who could resist diving straight… Continue Reading →

Jalapeno-cheddar biscuits

Isn’t it funny how certain foods can transport you back to the time and place where you first had them? I’m sure these american biscuits will always remind me of our road trips through the Great Smoky Mountains in our… Continue Reading →

Mini Egg cheesecakes

It appears that cheesecake isn’t quite indulgent enough for me, I’ve had to top it with rich chocolate ganache and cute little mini eggs too. I’ve wanted to do a recipe on here using mini eggs but I’ve always struggled… Continue Reading →

Rum roasted stone fruit

This is such a simple dessert, it really requires very little effort, but it tastes delicious and, if you get the charring right, looks really pretty. Ripe, sweet, stone fruit are rich with natural sugars which caramelise beautifully on a… Continue Reading →

Basic butter biscuits

A simple cut-out biscuit recipe is a really useful thing to master. This one is just plain (but scrumptiously buttery) although you can flavour the dough with citrus, spices, tea, herbs… all manner of things really. A recipe that doesn’t… Continue Reading →
