Sgroppino

If I can’t get to Venice for New Year then Venice will just have to come to me. And I think Sgroppino is one of the most delicious ways to make that happen.  I came across the drink in Diana Henry’s new book titled Simple – effortless food, big flavours. I love Diana’s recipes and have made a few for the blog, namely Sumac Roast Tomatoes, Lentils and Dukkah Eggs and the delicious Whole Roast Masala Chicken that also appears…

Sylvia’s blog really lives up to its name and it is easy to get lost in the delicious recipes on her site. The photography is absolutely beautiful too and a definite…

Roast Lamb

This Roast Leg of Lamb is the ultimate in hassle free entertaining. A traditional dish for Easter, this recipe makes cooking for family and friends just that more enjoyable and also allows you to spend more time with the people in your life. This is inspired by a Jamie Oliver recipe I came across on drizzleanddip.com about a year ago. I loved the simplicity and total low maintenance of the recipe for such an expensive cut of meat and I…

Frozen Watermelon Lemonade l heinstirred.com

This is such a good idea. And what a fantastic way to hang on to the last few weeks of summer with glasses filled to the brim with some Frozen Watermelon Lemonade. I had quite a bit of watermelon left after another recipe I developed and decided to freeze the leftover chunks. I was thinking of doing a sorbet of some sort but drinks are always fun to create and the idea came to me on a very hot Friday…
