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...
Cherry pie recipe (tinned cherries)

Cherry pie recipe (tinned cherries)...

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...

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...

Easy Eton mess

Easy Eton mess...

Eton mess Meringue, strawberries and cream are about as good a summer dessert as you will get and this recipe takes so little effort to prepare you will hardly believe it. It is a traditional English dessert recipe that is usually made with raspberries but strawberries work for me. In fact you could use any fresh fruit or berries like gooseberries or peach slices for example, the result is always the same… silence...

Traditional steamed Christmas pudding

Traditional steamed Christmas pudding...

Steamed Christmas pudding This Christmas pudding recipe really needs a scale, I have tried to get it to cups but depending on the size of some of the ingredients, whether they are chopped or not etc… just does not do it justice. Head on over to the appliances section and get one, they are not expensive and once you have one you will wonder how you did without it. You should make your Christmas puddings now for Christmas,...
Apple passion crumble

Apple passion crumble...

Apple passion crumble This is a really great recipe. Hot Apple crumble with whipped cream or ice cream is one of my real favorites but the passion fruit and pear flavour added to the apple is just fantastic.

Mango salsa

Mango salsa...

Mango salsa While the weather is still so warm I thought I would do a real old favorite which is great with fish, chicken or even on the side of a curry. You can quite easily substitute the mango with pawpaw for something a little different. I often add other things like finely chopped pears to it when having with pork chops or a red chili finely sliced when having chicken breasts, so this is a base for you to start from,...
