Easy Chorizo and King Prawn Paella






















This is not an authentic paella by any stretch of the imagination but it is very quick and easy and most importantly tastes absolutely amazing.

I've made a similar dish before, which I posted a few years ago but I've tweaked the recipe somewhat from the original version. It's now ram-packed with flavour and a squeeze of lemon juice at the end of cooking lifts it even further. A dish like this eaten on a cold, crisp January day really starts reminding me that the longer and warmer days of Spring and Summer are just around the corner...and they can't come soon enough. Roll on the clocks changing I say and surely we are due a hot one this year?!

What dishes do you turn to in the Winter to remind yourself of long hot summer days.

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.
