Dark Chocolate Tiramisu Roll – No bake

If like me, you’re not a fabulous baker (all that precision and patience – ain’t nobody got time for that!), then try this decadent, no bake dessert. Essentially a tiramisu but in a roll – wonderful to present on the table for a special occasion or just because.

Feta -or Chicken, Avocado & Cucumber Noodle Salad

When meat isn’t a requirement but “WOW!” is – this summer salad brings personality and texture. If you’re a meat eater add some cooked shredded chicken or a vegan can skip the feta and sprinkle over chickpeas (roasted chickpeas are divine) instead.

Banging Brussels

Gone are the days when these little green gems were boiled to death before the chicken even hit the oven.  This recipe takes Brussel sprouts to a brand new level of delicious.  Great during the cold winter months when they’re in season, as this recipe punches sunshine, personality and flavour into every mouthful.

Smoked Walnut Dukkah

Every Autumn I have an abundance of walnuts & there’s nothing like a jar of freshly blended dukkah. I sprinkle this mix over soft cheese for platters, salads or hot pasta for flavour & texture.  As a marinade with oil over grilled fish or chicken. When roasting potatoes or veggies a spoonful over 5 minutes before I remove them from the oven. Otherwise, lovely with fresh bread and warm olive oil.

Mussels in a Creamy Guinness Sauce

The delicate, salty flavour and soft juicy flesh of the mussels paired with the earthy Guinness and creamy sauce, is just enough to send you to seafood heaven.  Don’t forget the crusty bread of course.
