Roasted carrot and parsnip purée

Roasted carrot and parsnip purée


Vegetable purée's can be bland, so to give them lots of flavor I like to add spices. These roasted carrot and parsnip purées were served with a beautiful rosemary mint rack of lamb using cumin and coriander in the purées, these spices are a great complement to the lamb.

Pancakes for Shrove Tuesday

Pancakes for Shrove Tuesday

In the UK, Australia, Canada and Ireland today is Shrove Tuesday, otherwise known as pancake Tuesday. It's also Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday, but these are not the thick American-style ones, but the thin crêpe-type that I like to serve with golden syrup and lemon.

Valentine's Day trifle for 2

Valentine's Day trifle for 2

Today I have the pleasure of guest posting for my friend Becca on her blog It's Yummi. Becca is a real trained chef (unlike myself who just likes to cook), so it's an honor for her to like my cooking and welcome me to her blog.

Valentines Day is just around the corner and what is more romantic than sharing dessert after a lovely meal. My recipe today is for a trifle for 2. Layers of sponge cake, fruit, cream and chocolate. Wow your partner with this inviting dessert, because love is in the air.
