I know I’ve been absent a lot from the blog lately but I am working very hard on my next cookbook. So this recipe came up as I was looking for something quick to feed my family and myself on a very busy August day. It’s so great I had to share it!

Its tender, aromatic, flavourful and as fresh as a summer’s breeze. Continue reading

The white chocolate does the trick for me, but I truly love the colourful combination of berries and pistachios. This is a no-bake cheesecake which will save you so much time. And no one will know that you spent more time setting up the table than making this dessert. Continue reading
