Dark Chocolate Star Anise and Pear Spring Rolls

I wanted to try another ingredient from my 2014 Food Trends article. This time I wanted to use Asian influence in my baking. My spice cupboard is overflowing but they are usually used is savoury dishes, not sweet ones. To change that I came up with this lovely dish of Dark Chocolate Star Anise and Pear Spring Rolls I have an abundance of Star Anise at the moment due to the fact on my last visit out to Dubai I spent a lot of time in...

Rose Meringue Kisses

With Valentines Day around the corner I wanted to share another lovely meringue recipe, which was specifically designed as a dessert for the day of lovers! This recipe is the same as my pink chocolate eton mess meringue recipe but with the addition of rose water to give them that lovely rose scented flavour. Rose as a flavour? Middle Eastern flavours are apparently going to be very in vogue this year according to my 2014 food trends...

Pink Chocolate Eton Mess

With Valentines Day fast approaching I wanted to take a traditional dessert and put a modern twist on it. Eton mess is traditionally made with strawberries and is lovely but I wanted to make it with chocolate, and hey why not it is Valentines Day after all and we all know it’s a free licence to eat chocolate! From Scratch Meringues Because this is a romantic dessert I wanted to make everything from scratch. If you are feeling the...

Winter Exotic Fruit Pie

After researching and writing my 2014 food trends article, I wanted to try as many things off the list as possible and when I first found out exotic fruit was going to be on the list I knew I had to do something with that. I love all fruit especially mangos and passion fruit but I didn’t want to forget what lovely fruits winter has to offer.   Fruit I have used a lot of these fruits in recent recipes but they are so tasty and...

Honey Baked Apples

This is a very old fashioned British dessert. Some serve it with ice cream but more traditionally you will see it served with custard, while I am a fan of both of these things I wanted to tweak mine a little so I would have enough juices without having to add anything to it in the end. By doing this I have made this a far more healthier option for you and me 😀 and a healthy dessert is always a good thing. The beauty of this dessert is...

Apple and Cranberry Pie

Some flavours are classic and timeless like orange and lemon, banana and caramel, cheese and onion the list goes on, one of my favourites especially this time of year when the ingredients are in season is apple and cranberry. Pie Pie is a great food; it can be enjoyed hot or cold, sweet or savoury. I love a good fruit pie fresh, sweet and actually not all that bad for you, especially the pies I make. I never have the pastry crust very...

No Churn Ice-Cream

Wouldn’t it be great if you could have an easy homemade ice cream that requires no churning and so easy that you could have any flavour you desired? Can such a no churn ice cream exist? Well, now you can! Honestly this is true. I thought it was to good to be true. But it works, its simple, quick to make and the results are a rich creamy ice cream. And the base ice cream only has 3 ingredients. Yep you heard right 3 ingredients. Double...

Chocolate Mousse

I love this dessert; strangely I am not a huge fan of chocolate desserts. Any other time of the day, yep that’s fine I’m well up for that but I find chocolate dessert after a meal just too filling but this chocolate mousse is the exception. It’s light and fluffy and just rich enough to feel like you are being a bit naughty by having dessert but light enough that you aren’t desperately trying to loosen your clothing while hoping no one...
