Very Nice Veggie Slice

This is another great recipe for using up lots of leftover veggies in the fridge and it's super versatile - it can be eaten hot, warm or cold; as a light meal, afternoon snack and/or lunchbox filler. I love serving this as an easy Saturday lunch with homemade creamy tzatziki  and a classic rocket, pear and parmesan salad.

Stone Fruit and Coconut Cake

This is an easy, but impressive looking cake. It requires no machinery - it's all mixed by hand and it uses up any overripe fruit you have hanging about in the fridge. I used a combination of peaches, nectarines and plums; but this cake would work just as well with chopped apple and/or pear.

Spanish Omelette

This Spanish-style omelette (or tortilla) is delicious eaten hot, at room temp or cold. It's also a fab way to pimp up your grazing boards when entertaining - just cut up in cubes and enjoy with a lovely glass of Rioja. Yum!

No-Fuss, Easy-Mix Butter Cake

This easy butter cake is soft and moist and full of sweet, buttery and vanilla-ry goodness. It's a huge hit with both kiddies and adults.... And the best part? No fussy steps - just all the ingredients in one bowl and whipped on high speed for a few minutes. My kind of baking!

No-Nasties Nuggets

I always keep a stash of homemade chicken nuggets in the freezer for those times when I just can't bear the thought  of battling fussy kidlets at dinnertime. These nuggets are delicious and have the added bonus that you know exactly what is in them.

Just Aperol With It

In the event that I feel like treating myself to a fancy beverage - an Aperol Spritz really does come up trumps. For one thing, I always have a bottle of Aperol stored in the pantry and sparkling mineral water is a staple in our household.
