Creamy Tomato and Caper Spaghetti

Creamy Tomato and Caper Spaghetti

Apologies for my absence over the last couple of months, things have been a bit hectic (read 'stressful') but normality is finally returning (for now anyway!). The camera is being charged as I type, I have a stack of new cookbooks on my counter for inspiration and I'm looking forward to a long hot summer full of picnics, BBQ's and parties

This is a lovely light pasta dish for a summers day, perfect with a glass of white wine. If you don't like capers then just omit them. Some chopped crispy bacon on top would make a nice addition too.

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 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.
