Rice Krispie Marshmallow Treats

Sticky, chewy, crunchy and luridly coloured, Rice Krispie Marshmallow Treats have no nutritional value and a load of sugar, which makes them perfect for a children's party. I once came across a very sad little boy whose mum had sent him to a kiddies' birthday party with a small plastic...

Brazil Nut and Marshmallow Rocky Roads

There isn't a child alive who doesn't love a Rocky Road. Or a grown-up, for that matter. Unhealthy, I hear you say? Far from it! Dark chocolate is practically the poster child for the antioxidant brigade, brazil nuts are packed with cancer-fighting selenium, marshmallows remind you of the happy...

Cherry Berry Apple Crumble

  You can make this easy crumble with almost any mixture of fruit and berries, but the combination below is one of my all-time favourites. I have to physically restrain myself from eating third, fourth and fifth helpings and sometimes I only stop because my family want some too. You could...

Daily Juice : Mighty Mary with avocado, yoghurt, celery & lemon

Need a pick-me-up after a rough night? Ditch the booze and reward yourself with this refreshing, slushy version of the traditional Bloody Mary instead! It's soothing and nourishing, ideal for a hot summer's day. Perfect for your lazy Sunday breakfast or brunch! Adding yoghurt and ripe avocado amps up the...

Pickled Cherries, Cherry Chutney and Cherries in Brandy or Vodka

Cherry season is all too short and one of the highlights of my cooking year. A few weeks ago, I suddenly realised that I'd seen no cherries around yet, even though October had come and gone. Had I missed the season? Could I really have been that preoccupied? Surely not...

Daily Juice: Cherry Berry Bang

What do you do when you've bought 6 kgs of fresh cherries wholesale? Well, just about everything you can! Last week I picked up a delivery of 3 x 2 kg boxes of the freshest, plumpest, juiciest cherries I've ever come across. I'd ordered them online from local supplier Cherry...

How to Make Tofu Baked with Tomato and Basil Pesto

A lot of people find tofu tricky but I love it. Granted, it doesn't look, smell or taste like much on its own but boy, treated properly with some good flavourings it sure turns into a knock-out meal. Packed with protein, low in fat and easily digested, you'd really...

Eggplant Rolls Baked with Halloumi, Rocket and Red Peppers

My 14 year-old daughter recently decided to be vegetarian. Much as I support her lifestyle choices (hear hear for the plant food lovers), I suddenly find myself thinking a lot more about food and cooking than I usually do. It's so easy to just fling a chop or steak in...

Arroz de Mariscos – Portuguese Seafood Rice

If you find paella a schlep to make, then quick 'n' easy arroz de mariscos is for you. A wonderful, soupy seafood-y rice dish of Portuguese origin, it's comfort food and bowl food at its best. You can glam it up for special occasions by adding prawns, crayfish and...

Daily Juice: BlackBerry Booster

Blackberries have a relatively short season, so I always pounce when they arrive in the shops. The intense colour and flavour means a little goes a long way, so you only need a scant handful of blackberries for this lovely cocktail. Mango juice is quite thick, so I've added the...
