Chocolate mousse

Few recipes can be as delicious yet so easy to make. If making this with the kids, remember they’ll need supervision while heating the chocolate.

Whilst easy on the pocket, this may not be the quickest dish to prepare; but it’s filling and tasty.


Sweet potato hash

Mother and kids baking.

Hot cross custard roll

Take two British classics custard and hot cross buns and you can’t go wrong, unless you’re on a diet!

Please note that whilst this recipe is suitable for baking with your kids, they must be supervised during the steps involving heating the of the custard, and it is wise to supervise the later stages as well as this is potentially very messy!

Whilst this is a delicious dessert, it is very high in calories, fat, and sugars, so it should be eaten as an occasional treat only.

Stir Fry.

Tasty vegan stir fry

Love a good stir fry but have gone vegan, fear not, this tasty Chinese treat is entirely plant based.

Egg Nog.

Vegan eggnog

Eggnog is a traditional but long overlooked Christmas treat. Here we’ve brought it right up to date, with a dairy-free and egg-free recipe that is suitable for vegans.

Cornish pasty lunch.

Traditional Cornish pasty

The pasty is a much loved traditional warming treat. We don’t recommend eating them all the time, but they can make a warming occasional lunch, or cold on the go snack. Strictly speaking the only people that can make a Cornish pasty are people actually located in the county, as the name has protected status, however using this recipe you can make yourself a perfectly acceptable Yorkshire, Aberdeenshire, Flintshire, or County Down pasty!

Sausage rolls,

Sausage rolls

Looking for a warming snack for winter nights, or a tasty cold treat for picnics? Well the sausage roll might not be the healthiest snack around (we advise them as an occasional treat only), but it’s certainly versatile …and tasty!

Mince pies.

Traditional mince pies

What could be more Christmassy than a traditional mince pie. Having said that they are so lovely hot or cold that there is no reason not to make or eat them at any time of year!

Egg in a hole.

Egg in the Hole (‘V Eggs’)

Whether there is enough to this to consider it a recipe at all is debatable, but it is a really nice snack for when time is short! In the US they call it ‘toad in the hole’ (they don’t have the real thing). In our house, we call them V eggs, because the first time we saw it was in the film ‘V for Vendetta’.

Biscuit cake ingredients.

Marie biscuit cake

This cake would be a fun project to make with the kids, as it doesn’t involve using the oven (though supervision of melting the chocolate in the microwave is required).

Please note however, that this recipe is designed to be a very occasional treat only, and that it is high in sugars and fat.
