Salted Caramel Banoffee Tart

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!

Pumpkin & Bacon Pasta

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….

Ginger Earthquake Cookies

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…

Thai Red Curry Pork

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,…

Chicken Roulade

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. Prep time 20 minutes, cook time 30 minutes, Serves 4

Golden Syrup Dumplings

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…

Cider Glazed Pork Cutlets

Pork cutlets are great at the best of times, but add a sticky, sweet cider glaze and you’ll have your guests talking for weeks to come!  Seen here served with a side of sweet potato mash, steamed broccolini and apple and onion jam, you can serve it with whatever sides you like!

Apple & Onion Jam

Credit for the idea behind this recipe goes to a dear friends of ours, Kiara and Adrian, thank you so very kindly for introducing me to the amazingness that is this delectable, incredibly simple and relatively quick condiment that pairs fantastically with any sort of pork, be it roast pork, crispy pork belly or just…

Easy Pork Stir-fry

You know, I’m not going to lie – it happens to the best of us, there’s days where you just really cant be bothered with getting too creative and when you have grumbles coming from all corners of the house because they’re hungry, getting something on the table ASAP is your top priority!  This is…

Spaghetti Carbonara

This would be one of my husband Alex’s favourite pasta dishes, Carbonara!  Who doesn’t love those gorgeous tendrils of carbohydrates, bathed in shiny, creamy eggs and piled high with crispy, salty bacon.  Did someone say bacon? OOOOH BACON. Then there’s the lashing of fresh shaved parmesan, herbs and just to add a little bit more…
