Nice and Spicy Chicken Curry

Spicy Chicken Curry

It's a bit on the chilly side isn't it? I know Cornwall usually gets away with the worse of the cold weather but it's pretty darn freezing here at the moment. Hubby and I are playing the thermostat game on a fairly regular basis. I turn them up, hubby turns them down, I turn them up again....and so it goes on. It's not just us is it?

Anyway, this cold weather definitely calls for hot and spicy food to warm you up and my spicy chicken curry is just about perfect. It's a bit on the hot side for small kids though so this one's probably best reserved for the adults.

For this recipe you need to make the curry sauce the night before so the flavours have 24 hours to develop - it really does make a difference to the finished dish. You can also make the curry sauce and freeze it until needed. Feel free to try different meats too, leftover roast beef would work well I think.

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.
