It was Half Term here in the UK last week, not to mention the Pancake Day and Valentine’s Day which we have celebrated with my Classic Pancakes and this delicious Perfect Eggless Tiramisu. There was also a bit more time for slightly more labour intensive dishes like these Baked Spinach & Ricotta Stuffed Pasta Shells which went down a treat with the entire family.
I love Tiramisu! It is definitely on the list of my favourite desserts (even though it is quite a long list I must admit). It also happens to be one of my hubby’s favourite so I tend to make it as a special treat for him or as a bribe when I want for something to get done lol. 😉 Occassion isn’t important here at all as this Perfect Eggless Tiramisu definitely doesn’t need one!
Further to my little guide on How to Make Classic Pancakes comes this divine recipe for Pancakes (Crepes) with Mascarpone Cream & Cranberry Compote. It is an easy yet very impressive treat not only for Pancake Day but also sweet breakfast or brunch, Valentine’s Day dessert or simply “just because”!
Cranberry compote recipe in February you ask? Well, yes! I’ve never got round to posting the recipe in a run up to Christmas plus my Cranberry Compote with Rosemary is not only for Christmas, oh no! It is a perfect accompaniment well beyond the festive season and as it happens, it is perfect for not only savoury but also sweet delights!
Today we will talk “Pancakes”! I know, I know, there are hundreds of recipes available online instructing you on how to make them. Not another one! Well, bare with me please. This recipe has been my “go to” for years. It’s foolproof, easy and makes most delicate and light pancakes you could imagine and it’s all down to one secret ingredient. 🙂 So, how to make classic pancakes? Read on.
I’ve shared with you my recipe guide on How to Make Lemon Curd and now it’s finally time to use it in baking. My Baked Lemon Curd Cheesecake is as good as it sounds (if you are a fan of lemon curd and cheesecakes that is) 🙂 It’s quick and easy to make and it is a perfect dessert for any occasion, although personally I don’t need one to bake it!
Lemon Curd is by far one of my favourite breakfast spreads. I love its tangy sweetness on my toast in the morning or as a filling for pancakes – it’s pure heaven. The best thing about it is that it’s super quick and easy to make. All it takes is 4 ingredients and under half an hour of your time. Once you’ve tried this homemade delight you will never go back to shop bought version. Knowing exactly what’s in it has got to be a good thing too! How to make lemon curd you ask? Well, read on!
Today’s recipe is an oldie but definitely a goodie – Spaghetti Bolognese or rather Ragù Bolognese! It is by all means my boys’ favourite dinner EVER and something tells me our family isn’t the only one. 🙂 It might not be 100% authentic Italian recipe, however it’s based on one and the end product taste simply amazing! I’ve also adapted the cooking method for my new Instant Pot hence Instant Pot Ragù Bolognese. You will find the original (on the hob) method here as well.
My first recipe of the year is beautifully warming and comforting pasta dish, it is January after all! 🙂 My One Pot Beans & Meatballs Pasta is simple to make, full of veggie and beans goodness with scrumptious sausage meatballs thrown in for good measure. All you need is a spoon to dive right in!
And here we are in 2018! Happy New Year to all of you my lovely readers! Hope you’ve all had wonderful Christmas and are rested and ready to face 2018!
It’s really good to be back after couple of weeks of festive radio silence which was really badly needed to allow some reflection, self-care and most of all quality family time. But now it’s time for a come back and what a better way than with a little summary of Top 10 Recipes of 2017 on Jo’s Kitchen Larder.
I simply can’t imagine December without mince pie or two (or more like a dozen)! They are my guilty treats responsible for a roll or two added to my midriff by the time the New Year is here full of dietary resolutions. 😉 As much as I love regular mince pies, this year I decided to tinker with the pastry to see whether there is a room for improvement and that resulted in my Melt In Your Mouth Almondy Mince Pies!
