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.

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

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

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.

King Prawn & Coconut Fry

Tags: ,

When I thought of this recipe I wanted to borrow flavours from the south of India but then add some of the ingredients I love. So here it is…not exactly as you would have it on the shores of India but not that far off.

You can serve this a starter and it will serve 6 – 8 people depending how hungry you are, or as a main course for 4 people.
