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.

Fiery Steak Frites

Tags: , , , ,

As you know I love to add spices into all my dishes to create excitement and although I agree that some recipes should be left alone, I do adore spicing up this one. This classic steak and fries has been fired up with chillies and your basic pantry spice staples, and I love it with wedges rather than fries to reduce the hassle of deep frying.
