Perfect Roast Pork & Crackling

A roast pork, for those who enjoy it, its a holy grail of Sunday dinners. Apple sauce, crispy crackling, salty meat, all joined by roast vegetables and some crusty bread. The thing is, most people have trouble with this relatively simple dish. I hope my tips will improve your Sunday meals.


Hamburger Rolls

There is nothing like a nice flat hamburger bun when having a BBQ, a soft chewy "plate" to put your meat and salad on before hoeing into it in the back yard (so the sauce can fertilise the lawn). Enjoy these easy to make rolls at home and save some money instead of having to pay a premium for them.


Choc Chip Hot Cross Bread and Butter Pudding

Woah, even the title is a mouthful. This decadent dessert is definately not for the faint hearted, or those with a cholesterol problem. Those who are willing to take the plunge however will be rewarded with one of the richest, most flavourful puddings they have ever had.


Choc Chip Hot Cross Buns

These Easter treats are a breeze to make at home, they require very little effort once you have the main ingredients. Some of these may be difficult to find, but persevere and you will be rewarded with better buns than you can find at any bakery.


Brave New World

After many years of cooking, its time to finally share some of my recipes. Many of these have been found online and in books and adapted over time to suit my own style.

I hope you will be able to find something that suits you, and I hope that you too can enjoy cooking them as much as I have.
