Orange & Cinnamon Brioche

Tags: , , ,

Brioche is an enriched sweet bread often eaten at special occasions in France. This is a recipe for a 1kg loaf but you can make these into small individual brioches if you like, and add any sweet spices such as nutmeg, cloves and even saffron.

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.

Sweetly Spiced Plum Muffins

Tags: ,

Muffins are great for breakfast or even as a treat, and the scents of sweet spices fill the air whilst they are baking. Easy to make and perfect to get the kids helping in the kitchen.

Deliciously Rich Fruit Cake

Tags: , , , ,

Everyone needs a good tried and tested rich fruit cake recipe up their sleeve. Whether you ‘feed’ it with brandy, marsala or alcohol of your choice is upto you, but make sure you make it a few weeks before you plan on eating it. It tastes much better if you let the cake mature, and if you are going to ice it then leave it to dry out around 1 week before so the icing sticks!

Slow Cooked Spiced Lamb

Slow cooking is a great way to extract as much flavour as possible, and spices will only get better the longer you have to infuse them.

Melting Creamy Camembert

Tags: , ,

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.

Mustard Greens

Tags:

I love green veggies. Spinach, kale, broccoli, you name it, I love it! This recipe uses spinach, watercress and rocket but you can add any greens you fancy. Toasted pine nuts stirred through after wilting is a great addition too.

Coffee Nutty Pecan Cake

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Having a slice of cake with a coffee is a real treat and almost a must in my home. This coffee and pecan cake covers both bases, and you can add a splash of Marsala or Tia Maria if you fancy making it boozy.

Miso Chilli Wings

Tags: , , , , , ,

These chicken wings pack a punch. I’m using my favourite chilli sauce, Sriracha, to add some heat, but use whatever you can get your hands on. Anything fiery will work amazingly.

Roast Salmon with Fennel, Orange & Thyme

Tags: , , ,

This recipe couldn’t be simpler. The delicate flavour of salmon gets a baste with sweet fennel, zesty orange and fiery ginger. Throw in a little soy and some earthy thyme and you’ve got yourself one delicious meal.
