When you’re in the mood for a serious piece of chocolate biscuit nothing fits the bill better than a slice of chocolate traybake. This chocolate peppermint slice recipe came about because my Mum had given me a pack of three Fry’s Peppermint Creams that she wasn’t going to use and I figured I’d be able to make something tasty with them.
I love parsnips. I particularly like their inherent sweetness which works so well when they’re roasted. In fact, parsnips are so sweet that they were used to sweeten recipes in Europe long before cane sugar was ever introduced to our shores. However, the sweetness of parsnips also works really well in savoury soup, such as this cream of parsnip soup.
For all that I love chocolate, biscuits and cakes and the likes, sometimes I fancy a dessert that’s not quite as heavy as a torte or a fudge cake. That’s where this orange and passionfruit jelly comes in. I love the taste of passionfruit, but it’s quite an expensive fruit, so when I saw a pack of 3 reduced in my local supermarket I knew I had to jump at the chance to make something delicious with them.
I was recently sent a bottle of low FODMAP ranch dressing by the American company LiveFree Foods to test and I decided to make a salmon fillet salad with it. I’ve got to be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of salad dressings because a lot of the time I find them too vinegary, but I was willing to give the lactose-free LiveFree ranch dressing a go because I was curious to taste what it would be like without any onion or garlic in the ingredient list.
