This recipe is from my gran's church cookbook from 1960. Hope you'll enjoy it.
Horchata is a traditional Mexican drink, which the Mayans and Aztecs called this the drink of the gods. Here it is made even more heavenly with the addition of rum.
Liven up your salads! This is a super quick recipe for making a delicious dressing that I learnt whilst studying in France. It'll make fresh leaf salads more exciting and it is easily adaptable to make it your own!
Made this as an experiment and everyone loves it. Very sweet but nice with ice cream. Made the dough in my breadmaker so depending on your setting times depends on the cooking time. Any kind of sweet can be used but don't advise jelly sweets :) just as long as it melts and doesnt go hard and chewy. People turned their noses up when I suggested sweet pizza but people in my work were surprised....
I found this simple recipe for a lovely iced coffee when I was in Rhode Island, a nice pick-me-up without having a hot drink or a Red Bull.
Make this quick fresh tomato salsa and spoon over tortilla chips with cheese for a tasty snack, great party food.
These cheesy balls make an enjoyable starter or canapé. You can also try them with Taleggio or Camembert cut into cubes.
A simple recipe for a delicious snack, hot or cold, for picnics, kiddies' lunches, hometime snacks, etc.
I love this tart. Light yet completely decadent! Great flavour with the raspberries and mascarpone cheese. I've also done this with blueberries, and again it is completely yummy!
A nutmeg muffin batter is baked into mini muffins, then rolled in melted margarine and cinnamon sugar. These taste similar to doughnuts. They are the perfect treat any time of the year.
Great flavour - this'll brighten up any salad. It's basically equal quantities of tahini, olive oil and water, with soy sauce, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, garlic and fresh ginger.
You will need two cake tins. If you do not have two tins you will have to cook the layers separately. If you get it right it is delicious. If you like light cakes then this is the one for you.
This is a sponge cupcake with pink icing on top. It is wonderful and yummy, and this makes 18 cupcakes!
I've tried a couple of different recipes for elderflower cordial, and I've used this recipe a couple of times now and it produces an excellent result. The light flowery taste of elderflower cordial is one of the most refreshing and individual flavours, which transports you to the long days of early summer.
I cooked this for my 2 year old daughter who loved it. You can get the veg in there without them realising. My husband also found this delicious.
I made this as I had bits in the fridge that needed using up. It great as a lunch dish. You can use any bits for the topping, that are left over in the fridge, but this is what I had in. Hope you like it!
I like making desserts with oat bran. I added some other ingredients like muesli, honey and a scoop of whey protein powder, and it turned out both a great dessert and meal replacer. You can rearrange the measures in this recipe to suit your taste.
This is an easy to make refreshing drink made from elderflowers. These start to make an appearance around June. Once made and bottled it can be frozen and used when required. I first made it with my children who helped to pick the flowers and then make the drink. They still enjoy it and is now an early summer ritual. It's nice as a gin mixer, or diluted with soda or sparkling water for a change. Can be made without the oranges and less lemon according to your preference.
It's an astonishingly basic combination of ingredients that brings tantalizing flavour. Great on spare ribs or chicken.
A refreshing summer drink on a hot day! When raspberries are in season, juice a punnet of raspberries and discard the pulp and seeds.
