Passion Fruit (Granadilla) Slice

You know that playground chant, “my dad’s bigger than your dad!”, “well, my dad’s stronger than your dad!”, “well, my dad’s faster than your dad”… until blows come or the bell rings? That’s how I feel about passion fruit. Where I grew up in South Africa we didn’t have passion fruit, but granadilla, which is family …

Home-Made Lavender Sugar Recipe

Lavender Sugar is one of those things I’ve always looked at and loved the idea of, but never really known what to do with. I’ve always liked crystallised lavender – it’s both pretty and tasty – but aside from medicinal or household use, I’ve never really known how to actually use lavender in food. Partly …

Soybean or Broad Bean Salad

I have a grave and lifelong dislike for beans, especially the tinned variety, but I have developed a love for soybeans, sometimes called soyabeans. Aside from planting some Edamame beans, I’ve discovered that Waitrose sell them in the pods, or anonymous ‘Soybeans’ for £1.50 a bag of 400g! This, in my apparently boring life, has …

One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish – Savoury Crackers

This little One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish project was a labour of love! The resulting savoury crackers were fairly stunning though, we think! If you know Dr Seuss, you know this book title, I think? One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. Bizarrely, despite the yellow colouring of the text on Two Fish …

Chia Mocha Recipe

One of the recipes in this month’s Degustabox was a Chia Mocha, to go with the chia seed samples from The Chia Co. Even though I’m not normally a fan of textured liquids – I don’t even like lumps in my soup – I was keen to try this recipe, because I have a whole …

Chia Raspberry Cacao Nib Peanut Butter Slice

This peanut butter slice is adapted from the original Degustabox The Chia Co recipe. I had to make some changes to it as my kids wouldn’t eat cranberries if they were the last food on earth, and human survival depended on them. So I went for the freeze dried raspberries in the cupboard, and filled …

Hard Boiled Honey Sweets, AKA Honey Balls – Outlander #BookFood

There’s a passage in Dragonfly in Amber that always catches my attention when I read it: “We stayed locked together, not speaking, until my eye suddenly fell on the other small, yellowish lumps that Jamie had removed from his sporran. ‘What on earth are those things, Jamie?’ I asked, letting go of him long enough …

Slowcooked Chicken & Tomato Stuffed Pepper

Temperatures are dropping and the days are becoming shorter, so for us, it means the slow cooker has come out of the dark depths of the cupboard. We’re trying out a variety of savoury dishes for Halloween, a season not normally known for its savoury foods, but I want to have some options available, at …

Amazing Pumpkin Parmesan Dip

Another fantastic centrepiece for a party, a pumpkin filled with Pumpkin Parmesan Dip looks great and is versatile for crackers and veggies alike. You can adjust the amount of parmesan, or even substitute for a cheese you prefer – I can’t imagine there’ll be too much difference to the end result. My kids are particularly antsy about …
