Baked Baby Figs with Dark Chocolate Sauce

Do you like figs? Up until now I never really got a handle on why people raved about figs. Once I came up with this recipe I fell in love, so thought it an apt dish to serve on Valentine's Day.

Wild Garlic & Kale Hummus

Up to last week I'd never tasted wild garlic. As a child I remember traipsing around back roads between Waterford city and the seaside village of Tramore searching for gooseberries, blackberries and all those wonders. I wouldn't count it as one of my favourite pastimes but the sweet smell of blackberry pies or gooseberry fool were the rare delights of my childhood that I do miss from those excursions.

When you want to pack more seeds and nuts this is s satisfying snack lasting longer than chewing on a small handful of seeds and nuts. It's one of my go-to recipes. Lots of goodness here folks so get it into ya!!!

Dairy-free Choc & Vanilla Ice Cream Torte

Now here's one you'll thank me for when you get that call from one of your guests to say they are intolerant to dairy, gluten or is a vegan. This dairy-free chocolate and vanilla ice cream torte looks like you went to an awful lot of effort. Who's to know, unless you tell them, that it's from shop bought ingredients.

Here's a quick and easy one to have at the ready which is easy to adjust depending on dietary needs.
