  1. yummy! normally, when I make chicken salad, I never think of adding pasta - it makes sense, though! Also, the honey mustard idea is a great one, so much more exciting than plain old mayo :D.

  2. This looks to die for. Not too fattening!

  3. I agree. Honey and mustard in a dressing make a wonderful combination.

  4. Yum-what a delicious one dish summer meal. I love the addition of honey and mustard.

  5. Wow, that looks delicious! Great flavors.

  6. Hi Beth

    I saw this in GF and it caught my eye too. I have to say yours looks really delish and I'll be trying this soon!


  7. I totally missrd this in GF - will have to look at my copy again, I am massively into pasta salads at the mom, so I can see this being a packed lunch for me and my boys in the week! C xo

  8. OH Beth...this looks so good! And I am starving and I don't feel like cooking tonight either!

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
