Pork and apple are a traditional pairing and these cider braised cheeks are a great example. Pork cheeks lend themselves well to long slow cooking and this is a great winter comfort dish.

I don't have a sweet tooth, but the idea of these chocolate truffles really appealed to me. The recipe was inspired by a fellow foodblogger Hanneke de Jonge​ with whom I did a blog swap recently. These are simple to make and I used a silicone mould to give these a polished look which you can pick up in any good kitchen shop.

Taking fondue to a new luxury level with the addition of black truffle. I was lucky enough to pick up some truffle on a recent trip to Beaune. Not everyone will have access to fresh truffles, so you can always use a small amount of truffle oil in the fondue. Fondue is always a go-to comfort dish especially in winter, it may be retro but it still stands the test of time.

Back from my holiday and thought I'd get off to a light start with these humous and baba ganoush dishes. We're just on the edge of the holiday season and these dips make a great evening or party snack or a good side dish.

Simple flavours that make for an excellent snack. I love to serve this potted shrimp with old school melba toast but it works just as well on crackers.

We've all heard of bacon and maple syrup pancakes but why not the same combination in cookie format. This is a great marriage of salt and sweet.

It's Halloween weekend and you're probably wondering what to do with all that pumpkin flesh from all the carved pumpkins that you've made. Rather than throw it out, you can make this delicious soup instead. This recipe also works well with butternut squash which is bang on in season now.

I have a soft spot for mushrooms and this recipe certainly showcases that. Wild mushrooms are in season this time of year and a dish like this always says Autumn to me. This is one of my comfort foods, it's simple, indulgent and very tasty!

This is certainly a good soup for this time of year. Rich, earthy and warming and also a good way of using up those broccoli stalks that you would usually throw in the bin. The stalks have a good flavour to them and it means you get more use than just the florets when buying broccoli.

This chicken and paprika recipe always cheers me up as the colours are so vibrant.
We all need some colour with the evenings now closing in and it getting darker earlier.
I've always had a soft spot for this recipe as it was something I cooked many years ago and still do. It's not complicated to make but is delicious. I would recommend that you use a good quality paprika as it makes a lot of difference to the flavour and as you will notice from the picture the colour too! (No filters needed at all!).
