Amaretto tiramisu

A traditional favourite but that needn't mean it takes hours to make, this has only a few simple ingredients and takes but 10 minutes to prepare

Baked mushroom risotto

This is seriously warm and comforting, when you're in need of something to wrap up with for the evening

Seared beef salad

A whole lot of flavour with a combination of blue cheese with balsamic vinegar, against the tender beef and crunchy salad leaves

Chocolate, toffee and peanut squares

Chocolate, toffee and peanut squares

One of my guilty pleasures is a tin of boiled condensed milk (dulce du leche). If you want to make your own, boil unopened tins of condensed milk for 2 hours. I like to prepare a few at a time and then keep them in the cupboard where they will store for months!
