Fruits of the Dark Forest Meringues

Fruits of the Dark Forest Meringues

I call these Fruits of the Dark Forest Meringues because the meringue has some kirsch and cocoa in it – like a Black Forest Gateau. But it’s topped with a different selection of fruit. There’s no  cherries in it.

Mediterranean Veggie Bake

Mediterranean Veggie Bake

What do you get if you combine an Aubergine Gateau with some sweet tapenade, some rice and some puy lentils? You get a Mediterranean Veggie Bake. Very easy, very healthy, very filling – and quite cheesy.

Tarragon, Roasted Peppers and Goat’s Cheese Frittata

Tarragon, Roasted Peppers and Goat’s Cheese Frittata

I love goat’s cheese. And I am craving cheese so much these days. I wanted to try adding some herbs to a roasted peppers and goat’s cheese omelette or quiche.

Summer Fruit Cake

Summer Fruit Cake

This was a bit of an experiment. I liked the Apricot Almond Cake so much I wanted to see what it would be like using yoghurt rather than just butter in the batter.

Apricot and Almond Cake

Apricot and Almond Cake

Gluten free apricot and almond cake. A mix of apricots, ground almonds, eggs, butter and sugar – and of course a little vanilla extract. It’s easy and oh-so-yummy!

Clear Out the Cupboards Turkey Rice and Chickpea Soup

Clear Out the Cupboards Turkey Rice and Chickpea Soup

This Turkey Rice and Chickpea soup is absolutely packed with protein. And you can throw pretty much any veg you want to use up into it. It’s a good make-ahead soup too.
