Karens Apple Crostata Slices

Karens Apple Crostata Slices

This recipe has been a favorite in my family for over 20 years, and it’s also a great way of getting fussy children to eat something with at least some healthy ingredients! (Ricotta is excellent for growing bones / providing calcium, and of course the apples & lemon provide vitamins and also some fibre). It keeps very well if stored in the refrigerator, too….

Karens Coconut Sultana Cake

Karens Coconut Sultana Cake

This is a brand-new recipe that I recently created by accident, after I found I had no milk in the house during a storm & so I was forced to use a tin of coconut milk instead…… It was such a huge hit that I’ve already made it a number of times since then (it really is delicious, whilst still being quite simple and wholesome). It is an “olde style” cake recipe, and it is delicious either served warm (with fresh cream etc) or cold. It could also be cut into single serves and frozen, too….

Karens Oh-So-Easy Feta-Chilli Salad

Karens Oh-So-Easy Feta-Chilli Salad

The name of this recipe says it all really! – not only is it extremely fast to make and so insanely easy that ANYONE could make it, but it also has to be tasted to be believed! – it is simply divine……It makes a perfect side-salad for any dish, or is delicious served on it’s own or can be used as a filling in a crusty bread roll or sandwich…..

Karens Fried Swiss Potatoes

Karens Fried Swiss Potatoes

This is a great potato side dish that I first tasted during a school trip to Switzerland some 30+ years ago, and it’s still a favourite in my family to this day. It goes perfectly with just about anything that goes well with potatoes! LOL. It is also delicious served in bread or sandwiches, added to green salads, or can even be used as a basis for a potato salad ….

Karens Very Berry Bread n Butter Pudding

Karen’s Very Berry Bread n’ Butter Pudding

As it’s Valentines day, I thought I’d post a suitable recipe, and “KAREN’S VERY BERRY BREAD N’ BUTTER PUDDING” is an ideal recipe for Valentines day. It is reasonably easy & quick to make (…. easy enough that a man could make this for his Valentine!), and is delicious as well as being low in fat & reasonably healthy, and providing you don’t make it too sweet it could even be included in a weight-loss diet occasionally (….speaking from experience here!)….

Karen's French Egg Rice Salad

Karens French Egg Rice Salad

This is another (SUPER-EASY, SUPER QUICK) delicious vegetarian recipe that I adopted on my trip to France many years ago (…. see also my “French Tomato Side Salad” recipe – as these two recipes go together PERFECTLY). This recipe also keeps surprisingly well if stored in the refrigerator in a sealed container (it should keep for at least 3-4 days, if not longer) and goes with just about anything.

Karens Pumpkin and Curry Pasta with Baby Spinach

Karens Pumpkin and Curry Pasta with Baby Spinach

This is a new recipe that I’ve only recently created, but I’ve already cooked it at least 3 times as we enjoy it so much already!. It is SUPER-EASY and quick to make, and makes a really nice change to the usual, boring old pasta sauces normally available to vegetarians (tomato based, or cream based….), and so if you are a fan of curries or spicy food, or if you simply just feel like trying something a little different, then maybe give it a try!….
