Banoffee trifle

We always seem to buy more bananas than we actually eat, so to save them going to waste, I made a banoffee trifle. The first time I made this, I made a blended banana layer as well as the toffee layer, but they just melded together when spooned on top of each other, so I... Continue Reading →

Sweet potato nori bowls

My partner wanted to have nori in different ways to sushi so we made a nori bowl. (For my serving I replaced the nori sheet with 4 roughly chopped kale leaves.) I had cashew cheese sauce with mine, as I love it with rice. But my partner didn't think it would go with his nori.... Continue Reading →

Rhubarb mousse (kinda)

I attempted to make rhubarb jam a little while back just using citric acid to thicken it. It wasn't a total failure as it tasted good, but it wasn't very jammy. For one of the jars I decided to blend it, and it became an airy, kinda mousse-y texture, so here we are with a... Continue Reading →
