Bonfire Night No Bake Smores Cheesecake

Cheesecake might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re thinking of something to have next to the bonfire, while Smores are definitely something I – and my kids – consider fire-side snacks. I wanted to make something that says ‘smores’, aka chocolate, marshmallows and crackers, but without having to depend on …

Winter Vegetable Medley Soup

There’s something very comforting about a good medley of winter vegetables. The potato, parsnip, carrot, pumpkin mix all scream cozy days, pending Christmas and roast dinners. But while I really like the medley of winter vegetables, I don’t always feel like a roast dinner or even just like eating roast vegetables, so I decided to …

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 …

Cheesy Straws

These cheesy straws are a lovely snack for lunch boxes and last minute visitors. They can be prepared whenever you have time, and the pastry frozen – then just pop out a handful and bake when you need them.  I was setting an Autumn scene for some photos I had to do, so we broke …

Easter Egg Macaroons {DF, GF, EF, RSF}

This is not a new recipe for me – we make chocolate macaroons frequently – but I decided to make it into Easter Eggs for the children to decorate, so we’re sharing it again, all seasonal like. I used egg moulds to make these Easter egg halves, but you could make whole eggs by hand …

Thick Chocolate Mousse & Basil Cream

I love Basil. It’s such a sensory herb, with the ability to transport you to just about anywhere – usually in Italy. I also love chocolate, and one of my favourite memories is from my honeymoon, some 10 and a bit years ago, where we spent time backpacking through Italy, from Sorento through to Bergamo. …

Self-Saucing Steamed Pear Pudding With Orange Butter Sauce

I bought pears a few weeks ago thinking my girls would eat them, but they were hard, and stayed hard, till they started looking beyond their best, so I decided to make a baked pudding with them. I have been trying to use my Varoma more, so thought a steamed pudding would be nice too, …
