I just adore this very simple to make pizza dough. It has a gorgeous slightly different taste, thanks to the addition of a little flat beer. You can add any herbs and spices to enhance the flavour.

A sweet tomato pasta sauce with herbs and honey. This is a very simple student food- I made it with ingredients I had in the kitchen because I was hungry. It's also quite inexpensive, so it would work perfectly for low budget meals and for special occasions. The rum and honey work together to create a sweet taste, while the herbs balance the sweet with savoury.

This vegetable and pasta dish uses a variation on the classic bechamel sauce. Some wholemeal flour, garlic and spices are sauteed in the coconut oil and then the rest of the coconut milk is added instead of dairy milk, plus herbs, pepper and juice from the cooked vegetables. In common with all my recipes, no salt or sugar is added, but this is optional.
This delightfully creamy dish is so simple and quick to make and is great for a romantic meal for two. Serve with a fruity red wine to complement the flavours.
An extremely indulgent dessert, perfect for special occasions! Chocolate banana ganache is layered with brownies, chocolate mousse and whipped cream.
