    This Scottish favourite is sure to please! This tastes just like the one you had as a child! Butter tablet is creamier crumbly fudge that is absolutely delicious! It may sound as though there is a lot of ingredients and you may think it might be tricky but it’s so easy and so tasty! I hope that you enjoy my recipe as much as I do! It melts in your mouth and is crumbly but not too hard at the same time, TRY IT! It’s lovely!

    'Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face, Great chieftain o' the puddin-race!' Because I am vegetarian - I went in search of a version of haggis that I could eat! This one was passed on to me by some friends from Cape Breton.

    As a new cook at the age of 72 my first attempt at kedgeree would have been better described as "Smoked Haddock Biriani". After much experimentation I evolved my own special version of which my numerous descendants approve.

    This is pure heaven - well I think so anyway! It's sweet, melts in your mouth but is not chewy. This version is flavoured with chocolate and it makes a great gift. I always make some for my daughter's teachers at Christmas.

    My granny's clootie dumpling brought into the 21st century is no longer hours on end cooking, but just ten minutes in microwave! She makes it every year on Hogmanay.

    Stovies are traditionally made with leftover roast beef, potatoes and onions. But by using corned beef - it makes this doable anytime!

    This is the recipe you need if you want to know how to cook haggis, neeps and tatties for a traditional Burns supper. I get my haggis from the butchers but Macsweens do a nice one too.

    A traditional Scottish pudding that is very quick and easy to make. Use good quality honey and a single malt whisky for the best results. A simpler, but richer version can be made by omitting the raspberry.

    A hearty dish for all the family, and a great way to try haggis and add a twist to a traditional dish.

    This shortbread recipe has been a Christmas favourite with my family and friends for years. The shortbread keeps very well in an airtight tin or tightly wrapped in foil.
