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.

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.

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.

These savoury biscuits are so easy to prepare and call for just three ingredients. You can prepare the dough and then refrigerate until ready to bake. Serve with wine as a nibble, or as part of a canape spread.

This Greek meze is perfect for entertaining, and the pastry could not be easier to make. Serve as a nibble or starter, and enjoy the leftovers for weeks to come - they freeze well after they're baked. Just defrost and pop them in a warm oven, and you'll think they're freshly baked.
