Divine Dulce de Leche

This recipe is fantastically easy, and the end result is absolutely delicious, so really it’s a win-win! Try adding a few dollops to chocolate brownies before they’re cooked for an extra special treat.

Amazing Mango, Passionfruit and Lime Cheesecake

I’m not even sure there are words to describe how delicious this cheesecake is.. I’m not even going to try, but just… make this! You will not regret it I promise. (Except maybe if you eat the whole thing in one go which is way too easy to do!)

Beautiful Baklava

So I have a ridiculously sweet tooth, and therefore a slight baklava addiction… If you haven’t had it, it’s a wonderful mix of filo pastry, honey and nuts. What’s not to love? (Unless you have a nut allergy or are an infant under the age of 1…. In which case, I recommend cake). I always…

Gorgeous Greek Lamb Kleftiko

Yesterday I decided that it was so sunny that we should eat holiday food, so I made a Lamb Kleftiko, and boy was it good! There’s something really special about opening up the parcel after 2 hours of cooking to incredible smells! Plus, you can do most of it in the morning or the night…

Jamaican Jerk Chicken with Jamie’s Jalapeño Breads

On Bank Holiday Monday the weather was pretty perfect – hot sun, barely a breeze, not a cloud in the sky… So I decided that it was a perfect day for Jerk Chicken! This recipe is enough for 4 if you have it with some peas and rice, although the smells may tempt your neighbours…

Beautiful Boeuf Bourguignon

So I’ve had some beef in the freezer for a while now that I’ve been meaning to make into boeuf bourguignon, but I just haven’t got round to it. Deciding I needed a break from all the hard essay writing (procrastination) I finally got around to it, and I must say it was totally worth…

Cake Makes Me Happy

This evening I was aimlessly looking through my cupboards (a worrying but common occurrence) when it struck me that I had all the ingredients for my favourite chocolate cake recipe.. Okay, I was an egg short, but my housemate had one spare, so it was pretty much fated that I would be making cake. There…

Thai food, anyone?

A little while ago my parents and brother came down to visit me, and we decided to try a Thai restaurant that I didn’t even know existed….and it completely blew me away! If you ever get the chance, I completely recommend Jasmine Thai. It was slightly pricey, but as a special occasion dinner it was…

Platefuls of Paella

I know that I’ve been a little quiet of late – I’ve been rather busy – but I can now share with you the deliciousness I have been making. And first up, (drumroll please!) is paella. I love paella. I’m not sure I can quite express how much I love paella, but it’s up there with…

Fantastic flan de huevo

On Saturday I cooked for my family, and I decided to try a pudding I hadn’t done before, and settled on flan de huevo. It was simple, and absolutely delicious! I recommend it as a show stopper dessert you can make in advance – a win-win!

Love and banana cake

Dear wonderful people, Whether you’re happily with someone, or like me, enjoying a glass on your own (because Saturday, right?!) I want to bestow on you all all the love I can; you deserve it. My day was mainly filled with work (where I work has a 24 hour licence to serve alcohol, and serving…
