Lemon and Lime Meringue Pie

This is very similar to a lemon meringue pie but needs half the work and effort. It’s a recipe my mum taught me which is perfect as she learnt it from her Kenwood recipe booklet and I wanted to test a Kenwood Chefette mixer for a review. It’s fairly easy to make even more so […]


Mixed Berry Meringue Nests with Chantilly Cream

Meringue nests can be made well in advance and kept in an air tight container till needed Christmas day. You can also pick them up in most supermarkets though I recommend making your own as they are easy to make and taste way better. You can use fresh or frozen berries, I used frozen to […]


Lemon & Lime Cheesecake

Light and Refreshing are not words you would normally associate with a cheesecake. They well describe this one. It is easy to make and you can do so in 10 minutes then allow it to set. I would make this one the day before if making it for a special day. This will ensure it […]

Everyone loves a pavlova, that lovely gooey center simply delights esp when made just right. If you plan on making this it is really important that you follow the instructions carefully.

Raspberry & Vanilla Tart

I have included a gluten free alternative that gives the exact same results. You need Xanthan gum which is a gluten subsittute used in gluten free cooking.

Vanilla Panna Cotta

Panna Cotta is a very simple Italian dessert. If you can make a cup of tea then you can easily make these. You need something with them as they are a bit plain on their own hence the sauce. You can also change the frozen berries for fresh raspberries or passion fruit.


Simple and Quick Tiramisu

Desserts don’t come much easier than this, you will throw it together in a few minutes then unfortunately have to let it set for a wee bit before you can get stuck in.
