These little nibbles feature cherry tomatoes stuffed with a cool mixture of mayo, bacon and spring onion. They look great arranged on a platter of rocket.
For adults only! These are really quite refreshing to end a meal. Use any sparkling wine or champagne to suit your budget, they will still be fun to make.
Great to knock up quickly at party and doesn't feel alcholic
This is a wonderful recipe I found online and started tinkering with, made a change here and there to get the finished product. I've made it for several parties, and it's always a hit. It makes about 2 1/2 gallons so is wonderful to gift once the weather gets chilly! You can drink it hot or cold, but, watch out - it's pretty strong!
I made these tarts as we had similar ones as a starter at our wedding and everyone loved the combination of flavours. I have added onions in my recipe although they could be done without. Serve hot with rocket and a large glass of dry white wine. They can be reheated easily.
Qaghaq ta’ l-Ghasel or treacle rings as they’re called in English, are by far Malta’s favourite traditional Christmas dessert. Although not excessively difficult to make, they take quite a lot of patience and time to prepare. You can buy these delicious pastries all year round from confectionaries, but they are mostly consumed during the Christmas season.
I adapted this recipe from a traditional vanilla one in an old Harrod's recipe book. I made it for party and it went down a storm!!
This is a sponge cupcake with pink icing on top. It is wonderful and yummy, and this makes 18 cupcakes!
Amazing, Turkish delight flavoured, pink coloured vodka. Takes 2 weeks to make but so-o-o-o worth it!
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.
Great for serving to children or designated drivers at Christmas time, New Year's Eve or parties.
A nice way to deal with leftovers. And it has vegetables and cooking apples in it, so you can call it healthy.
This recipe is originally my mother's, however I've taken my own twist with it, increasing the sugar and adding vanilla - removing the butter to create a perfect tablet every time that's easy for anyone to create. Family and friends and strangers from around the world have tried it themselves and sent me feedback stating that it's turned out perfect and tastes delicious. It melts in your mouth and is bursting with sweetness; the slight hint of vanilla is an added bonus that leaves for a great aftertaste.
Fiery ginger combines with icy vodka, and is then topped with champagne for good measure. Use good quality champagne for best results.
Ready-made vol-au-vent cases make this classy canape easy. Stuffed with garlic butter and escargots, then topped with mushroom caps, they're sure to be a crowd pleaser.
This is a truly gorgeous tasting cheesecake. The texture is so light and creamy, it's shockingly good. I have just included the basic cheesecake recipe - it's up to you which topping you choose. We usually have it with some fruit coulis or cherry topping.
Rum goodness – this is the original Zombie - it removes the ability to walk from the waist down
This is the perfect cosmopolitan drink - very dry, and very smooth.
Maybe it's a bit girly, but I love these when I'm out with my friends.
Peach schnapps and vodka are shaken, then topped off with a splash of champagne, and a few fresh raspberries.
