And that means that when it comes to dinner time I find myself reaching for my collection of quick recipes for speedy, delicious suppers.

Happy New Year foodies, it is good to be back! The Christmas tree may have been packed away and the holidays all but over, but summer is still in full swing so let’s keep that festive feeling going for a little bit longer shall we?

We are counting down the sleeps until Christmas Day and there’s just time for one more Christmas recipe and my last post for 2018! This festive showstopper looks beautiful on the table and makes a decadent and delicious dessert. What is it exactly? My version is essentially a chocolate swiss roll filled with a walnut and cream cheese filling, smothered in chocolate icing and topped with chocolate curls. And in the mandatory log format! (Apologies in advance to your dentists and personal trainers… #sorrynotsorry.)

We are doubling down on nutty goodness this week with a brand new recipe that I put together recently – peanut butter and walnut fudge bites, yum! This is the kind of quick and easy treat that I love snacking on in the afternoon when I need an energy boost and feel like a little something sweet but guilt-free. They are so good!

As promised last week I have a divine dessert for you today and it is inspired by one of our favourite puddings here in S.A. Milk tart is a South African classic – a pastry shell filled with custard, baked and then topped with cinnamon. The only dessert my kids ever ask for these days though is ice cream, so I decided to play around and combine the two. The result – an easy no-churn ice cream with all the flavour of a milk tart, winning!
