Brownies & Bars, Desserts, Recipes / 22.10.2020

It's not hard to see why S'mores are so popular. The combination of crunchy biscuits, melted chocolate and gooey toasted marshmallow is all kinds of wonderful! I took inspiration from these glorious treats to come up with a Halloween-inspired dessert. With a buttery biscuit crumb base, rich chocolate mousse layer and ghoulish marshmallow ghost topping, these Spooky Chocolate Mousse Bars have all the S'mores flavour with an extra touch of scary! I used an easy, egg-free chocolate mousse recipe which contains marshmallows to help the mousse set so that the bars can be sliced easily. Of course, making the little...

Let me tell you a little bit about Zola Nene. Not only is she an extremely talented chef, TV show host and cookbook author, she is also one of the friendliest and bubbliest people I have ever met!

It is absolutely packed with a wide range of delicious, approachable recipes. The chapter that really caught my eye (apart from the desserts, of course)...

Nine times out of ten I will use shop-bought puff pastry, but when I have a bit of time on my hands, I find making my own really rewarding! So I have included both options here for you. Rough puff pastry is very similar to puff pastry in flavour and texture, but instead of using slabs of butter when folding, grated butter is used which...

Recipes, Sweets & Treats / 09.09.2020

I had some pomegranates leftover from a shoot recently and instead of a dessert, I decided to make something a little different - a cocktail! If you haven't tasted a pomegranate before, they have a sweet, slightly tart flavour similar to cranberries or even cherries. Although buying pomegranate juice will certainly save you some time, juicing a fresh pomegranate means you can reserve a few of the seeds/arils to garnish your drink (they look like little gems!). And that you get to enjoy the beautiful bold pink colour at its best.! When combined with rum, ginger ale and a...
