Courgette, Herb and Rice Filo Pie & Nigella!

Courgette, Herb and Rice Filo Pie




















I've been AWOL - sorry! Its not that I haven't been cooking, I have, but with everyone going back to school/nursery and me going back to work after the holidays I just haven't had any spare time to blog. We are back into the groove now though so I promise to have some new recipes (and competitions) on the blog for you shortly, I suspect with Nigellissima inspiration. Well, I couldn't have an incomplete Nigella cookbook collection could I.....


The recipe here is not a Nigella recipe, but instead has it's origins at River Cottage. I've tinkered as usual and varied the herbs that Hugh used. It's filling, hearty and hubby didn't even notice the lack of flesh!

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.
