Strawberry Honeycomb 'Cheesecake' Sundae

Strawberry Honeycomb Cheesecake Sundae

Kelly's of Cornwall, makers of yummy Cornish ice cream got in touch recently to see if I'd like to get involved with their Summer Scooping Challenge...er yes! The aim of the challenge was to create an Ice Cream Sundae recipe using some of their products, that would act as the perfect summer dessert.

If you know me, you will know my absolute favourite summer dessert is cheesecake - I could it eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner given the chance....and I did once! So with cheesecake firmly in mind I set about making a Strawberry 'Cheesecake' Ice Cream Sundae and ended up creating something truly amazing. They were so good I ate both myself - the kids didn't get a look in.

I used a Honeycomb Crunch ice cream for this recipe to give it some added crunchiness but a normal vanilla or strawberry would work well too. I also wanted the ice cream to be quite soft, to try and emulate the texture of a traditional cheesecake, so I took the ice cream out of the freezer about 10 minutes before scooping. However, if you wanted a firmer texture, take the ice cream out of the freezer at the time you need it and follow Kelly's top tips to get that elusive perfect scoop...
  • 1. Dip your ice cream scoop in some very hot water, then dry off with a paper towel before inserting into the ice cream.
  • 2. Use metal ice cream scoop if possible as it ensures a strong scooping action.
  • 3. Pull the scoop towards you and the ice cream should curl into a perfect scoop.

Microwave Jambalaya

Microwave meals are back and this is a fab bung it in the microwave recipe that's a real lifesaver when time is short...or when you don't have the use of an oven! People don't tend to use their microwaves for actually making meals but I've found I can do quite a lot in mine...veggie chilli, risotto's, as well as this really flavourful jambalaya with chorizo and red pepper.

I'll be posting more easy microwave meals in the coming weeks so keep an eye out on the blog.

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.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…
