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. You will find it in most supermarkets and health food stores though I haven’t seeen it in Aldi or Lidl. You do not need it if using regular […]


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 […]


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.

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 […]


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.
