Saffron Shortbread

Tags: ,

I think the name of this recipe says everything. Shortbread is truly delicious and if you make it yourself you can really play around with the flavourings. I love to use the delicate aroma and flavour of saffron, but you can use cinnamon, ginger and even lemon. Anything goes!

Masala Chai

Chai is world renowned for being sweet and spicy.  The masala is usually kept secret and is passed down from mother to daughter.  Here is one of my favourite recipes for creating your very own homemade chai — ssshhh don’t tell my mum I shared it with you!

Cranberry Peanut Butter Oaties

These cookies have everything a cookie needs. It’s chewy and crumbly at the same time, buttery and sweet, with just the right amount of oats to make you feel like you’re eating something healthy (when of course you aren’t!).

Beetroot, Orange & Ginger Chutney

Beetroot is a great vegetable to make into a chutney or relish. The ruby red colour looks fantastic and when paired with the flavours of orange and ginger, you just know it’s going to taste great.

Smoked Paprika Thyme Mixed Grill

It’s no secret I love smoked paprika and this recipe is one of my go-to recipes when I’m pushed for time and want to eat something delicious for dinner. I love to add chicken to my skewers but you can skip this and add whatever veggies you like.

This recipe borrows flavours from Thailand and is the perfect spicy curry full of creamy goodness. You can pack it full of veggies if you like, and it tastes great with any meat and seafood.

Chocolate Chip Ginger Cookies

You can’t beat a good cookie recipe. Baking fresh cookies are easy and always taste better than the ones you can buy.

Melting Creamy Camembert

Camembert tastes great when its been baked and the inside oozes out. Perfect on its own but even better when a few extra ingredients are added to liven up the flavour.

Shakshuka

Ideal for brunch, this North African dish has all the flavours you need – poached eggs in an aromatic sweet tomato sauce full of cumin, paprika and suitably herby. I’ve added a few twists of my own to add some extra zing.

Chips or crisps, whatever you call them, are yummy when fried but much better for you when baked. These sweet potatoes are given a touch of flavour from heady thyme and fiery chilli.
