Chocolate Pecan Pies
Pecan pie is one of the quickest and simplest bakes, just requiring some melting and mixing in a pan, a pastry case and oven. Dark chocolate adds a dimension of decadence to the mix. There
were thirteen of us around for Boxing Day so I made a couple of 9 i...

Braised Aubergine with Homemade Garlic Chilli Sauce
For fear of getting a cold plate of food, you can probably tell that I rushed taking the photos. There was also a strange angle of daylight in the one spot of the house that isn't shrouded in darkness, so the photos don't do this one justice. Go by faith, t...

Banana and Passionfruit Cake with Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting
This cake was the brainchild of my dad, who, tired and dazed
from a 3am wake-up call as we plotted down the M6 to collect mum from Heathrow,
strung a few words together to formulate an answer to my question of what birthday cake he wanted. He's a man of mor...

One minute salsa
Maybe it's an indication of uneducated tastebuds, but I much prefer sloppy, commercial salsa to the fresh stuff which requires chopping lots of fresh ingredients. Still, shop bought salsa is expensive, so here is a happy medium which takes under a minute to...

Basil and peach panna cotta. Raspberry 'leather' (really just a homemade fruit roll-up) and mini raspberry macaroons. Taken in natural light with a 3.3 mp Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S75. Used Gimp for a bit of adjustment to white balance and BeFunky for a touch up on the glass behind (yes, its actually proved a really useful site!)

Had a bit of an issue with the flexibility of the roll up; it was hard to get a nicely flowing shape.

The rest of the pics are here: http://sugarandtwocents.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/basil-and-peach-panna-cotta.html

Six Healthy, One Minute Snacks
One of the barriers to introducing healthy snacking into our diets is the extra time and effort it takes to make it. So here are six snacks that you can make in a minute. No excuses now! 1.  Spiced chickpeas - Drain a can of chickpeas. Add it to a hot pan, ...

Indonesian Kale (Mallum)
This is my  version of a popular Indonesian dish, Mallum or Mallung which means 'to mix up'. That's what I love about these kind of recipes - there is no right or wrong, and their are a million grandmother's versions. Just mix it up and hit it with flavour ...

Tofu Pad Thai
As a good and honourable citizen of the world is my duty to warn you
that this dish stinks. Treat the cooking of Pad Thai as you would a
paint job - wear clothes you don't mind ruining, and make sure there's a
steady flow of air throughout the process. M...

Basil and Peach Panna Cotta
I
decided to base this creation on something specifically related to
January. A quick search enlightened me to January's special holidays,
one of which is 'national Peach Melba day', which takes place on the
13th.  Today,
on the other hand, is 'male wa...
