Carrot and courgette veggie fritters recipe

Back at the beginning of April, project garden began. We got the shed delivered, patio laid and then turned our hand to filling our garden with plants. Once we got the first raised bed finished and planted up, I couldn’t wait to turn over even more of our garden to veggies so we got to work expanding our raised bed plot. One of the first things we planted in phase two was a solitary courgette plant. Reading the label it…

Spiced pumpkin cheesecake recipe

Cheesecakes have always been one of my favourite things to make and eat. I remember as a teenager buying my first ever spring-form cake tin from a German supermarket and being pretty impatient to get home and use it! The first thing I made was a Raspberry and White Chocolate Cheesecake, which was my go-to recipe for many years. Since then, through many trips to the US, I’ve tried and tested dozens of cheesecakes (conveniently ignoring their nutritional qualities…). All…

Try this beer flavoured roasted nuts recipe

Oh man, these beer flavoured roasted nuts are GOOD. It’s no surprise I love them; I’m a sucker for a good ale. I especially love a nice smooth bitter or a good pale ale – although a decent lager is pretty good every once in a while too! Over the past 18 months, I’ve taken tours around both the Heineken brewery in Amsterdam and the Carlsberg brewery in Copenhagen (check out some pictures, here) – I’ve also got my eyes…
