Dairy-free Banana & Peanut Ice Cream

Imagine smooth, velvety creaminess. This indulgent dairy-free ice cream leaves you drooling for more. Or maybe that's just me! 

No need for an ice cream maker and once you have the ingredients inhouse then it's a joy to make. 

 
 

Crunchy Cornflake Buns

Remember as a child making rice crispy buns? Here's a play on the "throwing" nearly a packetful of rice krispies into the warmed and melted chocolate. Use cornflakes instead for, what I think is, a far crispier texture than rice krispies. 

Healthy Mixed Seed & Hazelnut Butter

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!!!

Raw Cacao, Almond & Cranberry Snowballs

Truffles always impress don't they? These are healthy and so easy to prepare, have no nasty "non-food" ingredients and a perfect treat to share when friends drop in for a cuppa and chat at any time of the year.

Mulled Apple Juice

Well the winter surely hit in the last few days, so cold in Ireland isn't it? I usually have mulled wine, cider or apple juice nearer to Christmas but caved in over the weekend. Whether it does or not I convinced myself that it warms me up. mugful but it is certainly not like the sweeter versions that are my norm. Hope you like it.

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.

Blueberry, Redcurrant & Avocado Smoothie

When I saw the blueberries and redcurrants on special offer yesterday in my local shop I grabbed a few packs. Happy thoughts of smoothies and possibly a berry crumble to be made were making me hungry on the drive back home .

Broccoli & Basil Soup

Do you prefer making a soup out of broccoli than having it as a side vegetable, or is it just me? I do as you can add so many wonderful vegetables and nuts to it for a more interesting flavour.

Having it as a side vegetable, unless smothered in a 'creamy' sauce, just doesn't really light my fire. Since I know it's so healthy for me I try to eat it regularly so when I'm in a hurry I tend to just make up this easy soup below. Also as a snack afterwards I chew on a roasted walnuts with the cuppa of herbal tea.

Satisfying Butternut Squash & Chestnut Soup

A satisfying Butternut Squash and Chestnut soup, sure to warm the "cockles of your heart" on a wintery day like today. Also ideal for putting those hunger pangs at bay, especially when served with a baked potato or sweet potato fries, which are great for dipping into the soup.
