I am always experimenting with new foods and this is a place where you can find all sorts of recipes to feed your family and friends.
From simple, quick recipes right through to the more complicated ones, you will find them here!
I specialise in meals that are for two people, as we do not all have large families!
This recipe will have everyone coming back for seconds, as it just delectable.
My visitors voted this a hit, and gave it an 11 out of 10, and quickly came back for more! Sadly, there were no left-overs for me for the next day - it is quite rare that visitors ask for another lot of dessert, but this one with it's tart sweet taste is just one of these popular desserts that most people seem to love.
I have made several different versions of a lemon dessert, however I think this one is the best.
The flavour of the lemon mixed with cream, and the runny texture of the middle of the pudding, will make this dish a "stunner" for any visitors, or family. Best make it for family, then you might get more yourself!

This is an unusual recipe, looks great, and tastes absolutely delicious. It is basically chocolate covered sponge fingers, with a cream cheese mixture in the middle, stuck together with the melted chocolate! You could put any fruit on the top and I have eaten it one day with pineapple and nectarine, and the next with just kiwi fruit. Most fruit, and particularly berries, would go very well with this combination.
I generally use Lindt 70% chocolate, or a chocolate called Freys (available in Australia at Woolworths and cheaper than Lindt - just as good!) in cooking, as the finished product is as good as the quality of the chocolate in cooking. I never use a cheaper type of chocolate, as it is like cooking with wine - the better the product, the better the outcome.

CHOCOLATE MOUSSE - what can I say! I have not met anyone who does not like this.
My chocolate mousse recipe is always much in demand as everyone loves it. It has been handed down to me by my late best friend, and we used to make it often many years ago.
Nowadays, I do not add any sugar to it as it does not need it though in the original recipe, it says to add a cup of sugar if using cooking chocolate.
Chocolate is a bit like wine when you cook with it. Use a good one, and your recipe will taste all the better for it. I therefore am always on the lookout for Lindt chocolate at half price. I use the 70% dark chocolate as that is healthier than plain dark chocolate.
I do, in fact have one square of this almost every night as I rarely have cakes or food with added sugar nowadays. That is what happens as we age - things seem to start "wearing out", and sugar levels go up for some odd reason. I used to be able to eat exactly what I wanted, and as much sugar or cake as I wan…
