An incredibly easy way to round off a dinner party - but only if they aren't driving! I like to serve two small scoops in tiny dishes with shortbread, biscotti or amaretti. You can vary this any way you like - try Cointreau or Drambuie (my favourite), or add a few drops of real vanilla extract or some of the vanilla seeds.
A classic treacle tart recipe.
A gorgeous chocolatey crunchy biscuit-like treat which kids will love as well as adults.
These are a great for a children's Halloween party! Chocolate cake mix is an easy option when you are making so many. Use liquorice laces for the legs and mini jelly beans or Smarties for the eyes.
Polenta should be served straight from the pot or chilled and then pan fried. Wild mushrooms, cheese, fresh herbs and olives are good additions to this delicious comfort food. Quinoa adds a nice nutty flavour to this vegetarian dish.
Quorn fillets make a great, low-fat vegetarian alternative to chicken or meat in a simple stir-fry. Marinate ahead to add flavour, then quickly cook with vitamin-rich vegetables, just before serving. If liked, serve with sesame breadsticks.
My mum, Faye Grant, has been making this apple cake for her Seders for years. It's the best apple cake recipe you'll ever taste!!
WONDERFUL!!! A wonderful punch made with white wine, mango and orange slices. Peach schnapps, cognac and ginger ale round out this summer party drink.
A fun retro party drink.
I found a good sangria recipe and headed to the off license to purchase the alcohol. In the queue, ahead of me, was a man who said he has been a bartender for 20 years now, and that my recipe needed a few touch-ups if I wanted to make it like the Pros. So, here is what he professed to me, muchos thanks to the other submitters for their delicious versions.
