300g white chocolate
250ml double cream
3 egg whites
Put the chocolate in a heat proof bowl …

This is one of two puddings served last week at the rationing dinner. It is so comforting that I long for it on winter days or when I deserve a treat which we all do most days! I probably should have posted this a month ago now that the days are brighter, but as it …
I briefly gave cookery demonstrations in 2012 and in searching for my Florentine recipe, found I had not put them on this blog. So here they are. As delicious as we all know they are but with a twist of roasted almonds. This happened by a mistake because I meant to skin them, found that …

My daughter had a stall outside of the house at the weekend selling fresh lemonade and lemon tarts. One friend said she would give her £20 for the tarts so my seven year old is richer than she has ever been! These are the tarts, with added meringue if you wish.
