Mini Cheese and Onion Marmalade Savouries

Don’t you just hate it when you get the half-eaten cheese platter conundrum! Really expensive cheese that you can’t re-serve and don’t want to throw out.

Well this quick and easy recipe will solve all those problems and make you smile from the inside! The great thing is, a small amount of cheese & a spoonful of relish goes a hellova long way. 15 minutes to cheese platter heaven!!!

Fennel, Beetroot & Goat Cheese Salad

Beetroot: one of natures vegetable titans. Low fat, high in vitamins and minerals; loaded with antioxidants and delicious to boot! This salad has depth, texture, flavour and loads of sex appeal! The sweet earthy beetroot, sharp citrus twang of the oranges, soft salty feta and fragrant fennel, a beautiful Spring and Summer dish. Eat hot or cold.

Coconut Slaw

Sometimes all you need is a little bit of this and a little bit of that to create what I consider ‘magic’ in a bowl and this recipe is all that!  It steps up the old and traditional into modern, tasty and moreish.   This is what I’m all about, packs a massive punch with flavour, colourful and goes with everything. Er, no love, not your new shoes!!!

Candy Cane Truffles

Left over candy canes are a thing of the past.  Try these delicious truffles, for a modern take on an old recipe. Creamy white chocolate on the outside, with a surprising crispy peppermint filling.  One is just not an option! Have a cool Yule.
