Shepard’s Pie

I have always assumed that Shepard’s Pie and Cottage Pie are the same thing, merely referred to differently depending on which side of the Atlantic you are from, similar to aubergine and eggplant or courgette and zucchini.

Dried Cherry & Macadamia Cookies

Developing cookie recipes is always a struggle for me. Chocolate is the primary ingredient in 99% of my favourite cookies, so coming up with delicious variations that don’t leave the chocoholic in me feeling deprived is a pretty big challenge.

Roasted Pepper Sauce

All of the pasta sauce recipes I currently have on rotation take between 2 and 4 hours to make. They are hearty and full of delicious slow cooked meat, but unless I have a container frozen in the freezer, it’s not a meal I can quickly throw together for a midweek dinner. This pasta sauce…
