    I make this houmous all the time. It only takes a few minutes to prepare, and it's healthier than shop-bought without the oil. Increase or decrease the ingredients as desired, especially the chillies! Serve with tortilla crisps, pitta triangles or fresh vegetables. Add more of the reserved chickpea liquid for a smoother dip.

    Surprisingly easy chicken chunks coated in a crispy batter with a 'can't believe it's that easy' sweet and sour sauce. Serve with my Easy fried rice.

    These cheesy and buttery cheese straws come with a kick thanks to a touch of cayenne. If desired, omit the cayenne for a simple cheese straw recipe.

    Light and flaky, these tarts are easy to make and easy to reheat. Just wrap loosely in foil and heat at 180 C for 10 to 15 minutes, or until warm.
