I think this would be one of my biggest mistakes, ever. I'm sharing it because its absolutely delicious and I love it, but it does mean than relaxing Friday nights with fish and chips from the local chipper are a thing of the past. Why? because I will never eat fish n chip shop fish again, it's just not a patch on what you can do at home! you have been warned, also don't expect it to be cheap - good fish is pretty pricey.. enjoy xx Ingredients Hand cut wedges 6 - 8 large pot
I've been a bit over baking because of the heat but now that everyone is back at work and school I thought I'd better hop to it. Cookies are always a win in our house and Connor, so very eloquently, let me know of his distaste for fruit where chocolate can be put when discussing hot crossed buns recently, so I set out to make the best choc chip cookies I could muster. This recipe uses the base batter of the hot choc chip cookies recipe with some changes. They are a hit. It ma
Connor turned thirteen over the weekend and requested the most chocolate cake I could make, so I came up with this delicious flourless chocolate cake and added Maltesers to make it more teenager friendly. It is a pretty easy recipe but I had some odd things happen to my version which required a little improvisation. The end result was a super moist and delicious chocolate cake that was a winner with kids and adults alike. This recipe is what I did, not what the original recip
This is a complete tart of a recipe and on your plate. It is soooooooo good that it makes you sick. Best in small doses, but it's hard to stop.. see just like a tart. The caramel is pretty temperamental, I took 3 goes to get it right, but if I'd had a sugar thermometre it might have been simpler. Anyway it was worth the effort if you are looking for a really decadent dessert or you are feeding a genuine sweet tooth. Enjoy xx Ingredients ¼ cup (25g) Dutch cocoa 1½ cups (225g)
I wanted to make something special for dessert this weekend and I came across this delicate chocolate cake recipe by Diana Henry and decided to give it a whirl. It doesn't look amazing as the top has a meringuey feel to it, so it cracks, but, the upside is that when you eat it there is a delicious crunch before you descend into the chocolate heaven below. It's an easy dessert for the result - even if you don't do cakes, you can do this one!

This is one of those simple deserts that everyone loves. I don't make my own pastry and I'm not going to apologise for that the puff is fine and it means this dish is seriously quick. I made it on Saturday afternoon, it took about 15 minutes to prepare and was ready to pop in the oven when we wanted it. There is nothing like a hot apple pie in the middle of a movie on a cold Saturday night! Enjoy. Ingredients I kg apples (I use whatever is in season and cheap) 3 tbs butter Go
Noel's favourite is carrot cake and he had mentioned (on numerous occasions) how much he would love it if I made one... So out came mum's Kenwood mixer (which had been in various garages or sheds for 15 years) and once I tested that it still worked and looked for a good recipe, I committed to it. This is an adaption of Curtis Stone's Carrot Cake. I used olive oil rather than canola and replaced the unsalted butter in the frosting with more cream cheese. It was a big success w
