Happy 2023 foodies! I hope you had a lovely festive season filled with delicious treats. Let’s kick off the year with an easy and wholesome recipe. This simple seed mix adds flavour and texture… More
It’s been one of those weeks where I’ve been drowning in admin and feeling like I’m being pulled in ten different directions all the time – it’s been hectic! The busy year end season has definitely started and now more than ever I need recipes that I can get on the table fast. Did I mention that they need to deliver on flavour too? A quick pesto pasta is definitely a great option for those crazy days (plus pasta = comfort food = happiness).
My kids get very excited when I take the stand mixer out to make homemade bread, they can’t get enough of it! These kaleidoscopic brioche buns are bright and bold but there’s nothing spooky about the flavour – I mean, is there anything better than enjoying a soft, fresh bread roll that’s still warm from the oven?
Hi foodie friends. Anyone else feeling slightly panicked at how quickly this month is going? The kids have just started their final term of school for the year, and it’s always jam packed so I’m bracing myself for that. Between school, recipe testing and book writing, house guests and two family birthdays (and I haven’t even thought about Halloween) there is a LOT going on right now, and I’m leaning on my repertoire of easy week night suppers more than ever to keep the troops fed and happy.
This easy loaf cake is simple enough to whip up as a last minute tea time treat, and you can have a bit of fun creating a swirled effect with the vanilla and chocolate batters. It’s made with ingredients that I always have on hand, love that! Let’s not forget the simple mocha glaze that goes on top (scroll down for a close up of that drip!), I’m here for all of it.
When I made this pie for the first time a few weeks ago the family really enjoyed it. We love chicken pie, and it’s been a while since I made something with phyllo pastry (I happened to have some in the freezer that needed to be used) so I put the two together in this very easy recipe – yummo!
These clouds of sweet deliciousness have a crisp shell but will melt in your mouth. For a change I tried making these meringues with muscovado sugar instead of castor sugar as I usually do. I love using muscovado sugar in my baking because of the wonderful caramel flavour it adds and so I was keen to see how it would work in a batch of meringues – they turned out great!
Tuesday the 29th of March started off much like any other day. I was the first one up at 6am, and headed straight to the kitchen to put the kettle on and start organising lunchboxes, laundry and the other usual morning chores. That particular morning I also had a tv segment, and after a bit of time with the family I headed off to the Expresso studios to show the viewers how to make a satay sauce (yum!).
Homemade veggie soups are so comforting and warming, and really very easy to prepare. Roasted carrots and butternut, along with the hint of ginger, give this soup it’s delicious flavour. This is a thick and creamy soup which makes it feel quite indulgent. It will definitely satisfy and warm you on a cold winters day!
