No bake white chocolate cheesecake

No bake white chocolate cheesecake...

This is such an incredibly easy recipe it is almost hard to believe it tastes so fantastic. I am not a big fan of sweet cheesecake recipes and this one really is an excellent recipe. Next time I make this recipe I think I will add some finely grated citrus rind. I can taste a little lemon or orange zest in it but it is fantastic as it is as well. Because it is not overly sweet, top it with almost anything to sweeten...

As a child I remember having the most delicious Sarah Lee cherry pies (not sure if you can still get them in SA) as a treat and as I have moved recently was keen to try out the new oven and decided to give a cherry pie recipe a try for some friends. Everyone really enjoyed it and I can seriously recommend you try it. The recipe calls for ready made pastry so no messy stuff involved. It’s a pretty simple recipe and...
Chicken Leek and Ham pie

Chicken and Ham pie with Leeks I made these pies along with the Greek Lamb shanks and Lemon Flans for a dinner party of 23 people the other night and it went down a real treat.

Banoffee Pie Recipe

Banoffee Pie Recipe...

Italian Banoffee Pie There are few desserts as simple as making a banoffee pie and few that get the sounds of pure delight than this recipe. It’s of Italian origin I am told and although I love Italian food, have not had so many great desserts out of Italy so far. You may have had one from woolies or a home industry but there is nothing like a home made banoffee and as we know, the act of making it transfers the...

Toad in the hole Don’t let the few ingredients fool you on this Toad in the hole recipe, it is fantastic.

It is well worth making the pastry yourself so take a few minutes extra and you and your family will...
