An age old classic, gooey caramel, sweet fresh banana, whipped cream and the crunch of a biscuit shell. Banoffee is hard to beat normally, add a sneaky sprinkle of salt flakes and it goes from yummy, to amazing!
Forgive me, its been a little while since I’ve managed to get a post up – but never fear, I *have* still been creating yummy dishes to share with you all. A change of jobs has kept me crazy busy. But this pasta was so quick, simple and YUM I couldn’t wait to share it.
Prep time – 5 mins, cook time – 20 minutes, serves 4.
What better way to spend your Sunday afternoon than whipping up a batch of these yummy, gingery, creative looking cookies. The “earthquake” look comes from rolling the balls of chilled dough in icing sugar before baking them. The crucial part comes with making sure that dough is super cold before you roll the cookies, or you end up with ginger earthquake pancakes!
These cookies are so more-ish, you better make sure you bake a few, once your friends catch on to these, they’ll be begging for more!
Prep Time ~ 2 hours (including chilling time) Cooking time ~ 15 mins a tray
Makes approx 100 cookies (you can very easily halve this recipe if you dont want as many!)
I’m a sucker for a good red curry – my absolute favourite would have to be a red curry duck, but this red curry pork comes a very close second, loaded with red curry and creamy coconut milk, a nice crunch of fresh vegetables and sprinkle of chopped peanuts and chilli to top it off, and if you want to add a few more healthy bits, there’s even a scoop of nutty brown rice hiding under the gorgeous spicy coconut broth. Incredibly simple, quick and easy, its certainly one to keep the hungry crowds from rioting for a few hours at least! This recipe is structured to be a bulk cook, but by all means, scale it back by half if you only have a small crowd.

It looks a bit fancy, and a bit complex, but looks can be very deceiving! This simple chicken rollup is a winner, seen here served with a simple garden salad, crunchy butter grilled asparagus and a bed of creamy polenta, it’s a good hearty meal.

When I think of Golden Syrup Dumplings, I think old school classic favourite, skip the healthy and go for downright yum. Naughty and nice, that sweetness from the brown sugar, cut through by the slightly bitter golden syrup flavour. Topped with a dash of cream and a scoop of vanilla icecream turns this into a perfect dessert, but one that you definately need to leave plenty of room for! Can anyone say sugar coma?
