I love to make these lemon macaroons topped with lemon curd - they don't have any butter so that the macaroons are fresh and tangy! The lemon curd is super easy to make, and these macaroons are simply heavenly.

The flavour combination of chilli and chocolate has been around since the 1600s. If you add just the right amount of chilli to these chocolates, it will enhance the flavour considerably. Try not to be too heavy handed. Start with 1/2 teaspoon chilli, taste and then adjust if required.

These mini meringues are oh-so moreish. Give them a go - they're low in fat and totally delicious. Be sure to use unsweetened cocoa, not sweetened drinking chocolate mix. You could omit the cocoa for plain meringues, studded with chocolate chips.
