I prefer to make a shortbread base rather than use digestive biscuits - it tastes a little richer. But the choice is yours. Either way, this is a great dessert for a crowd.
This is an alternative to the classic cream cheese frosting recipe, using brown sugar and honey instead of icing sugar. My Husband and I use it on Banana or Carrot Cake.
This is delicious for a party because all you need is apple juice and lemonade or sparkling water, and of course, an ice cube tray :P
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.
Berry Punch used at all my family occasions along with many other punches but this one is my personal favourite. If you like it sweeter you can add sugar or maple syrup, but the sherbet adds the sweetness kick for me, there is never a drop left in our house!
Digestives for the base, then cream, cocoa powder, chocolate, cream cheese and baileys for the top.
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.
This recipe is easy, but fun try choc drops and wine gums in them
Use this recipe for a cheat's garlic aioli as a dipping sauce for fish cakes, or to spread on sandwiches. It's ready in minutes and is full of flavour, and no one will know you've used shop-bought mayo!
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.
White Christmas is an Australian Christmas tradition. It looks like a white chocolate sweet, but is actually made with a combination of powdered milk and copha. Copha is the brand name of a form of solid vegetable fat made from hydrogenated coconut oil. You can find it in specialty shops and online.
A tried and tested seafood sauce. Serve sprinkled with paprika over the sauce, and garnished with a sprig of parsley. This was given to me by a chef back in the 60s when everyone had prawn cocktail as a starter when eating out.
A simple, but refreshing drink that's perfect for the warm summer months. Feel free to use other concentrated fruit flavourings instead of limes, if desired.
A super-easy drink, which is perfect for the warm summer days. Brewed coffee is mixed with light condensed milk, chilled and served with ice cubes.
There's nothing quite like homemade marshmallows. Once you've made your own, you will never buy it again. Toasted coconut is used to top this vanilla-flavoured marshmallow.
A refreshing margarita, made by mixing together water, tequila, limeade and triple sec, then freezing the mixture until a slushy-consistency is reached. Enjoy at your next dinner party.
If you love coffee, you'll love this coffee jelly! Coffee is mixed with gelatine and sugar, then allowed to set. Serve with evaporated milk, whipped cream or ice cream.
A lightly spiced alcoholic drink, with just the right about of creaminess and egginess. Eggs are beaten with sugar, bourbon, rum, single cream, nutmeg and whipped cream. Serve during Christmas time.
A slightly sweet and spicy martini. Ginger liqueur is mixed with vodka and ice, then garnished with crystallised stem ginger. It's the perfect summer drink to be enjoyed all year round.
A fantastic cake to serve at Halloween. You will need a new cat litter box, liner and scoop for the full gruesome effect. The cake is delicious, that is, if you can get over the initial thought of eating from a dirty litter box.
