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!

Green Olive, Cheddar & Chilli Rolls

Tags: , , , , ,

Baking bread is easier than you think and there’s nothing better than freshly baked bread you’ve made with your own loving hands. This is a tear and share loaf full of green olives, sharp cheddar, and a hint of chilli. It’s a great way to start a meal or have with a warming soup.

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!).

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.

Chickpea Chorizo Fritters

These perfect little snacks are packed full of flavour. The smokiness of the chorizo works wonderfully with the toasted spices.

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.

Sweet Potato Chips with Thyme & Chilli Salt

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.

Chilli Cheese Sablés

Tags: , , ,

Sablé is the French word for ‘sand’ and is a biscuit – almost like shortbread. It has the most delicious, crumbly texture which should only be baked until light golden brown.

I’ve been curing my own salmon for years. It’s easier than you think and is much more impressive and tastier than store bought stuff.
