Cheesy Corn Fritters

Cheesy Corn Fritters

Corn fritters are an easy meal that perfect at any time of the day! These fritters are very popular in New Zealand and can be truly called a "Kiwi classics".  Corn is rich in insoluble fibre that feeds the good bacteria in the gut, which aids in digestion. Throw in a healthy amount of vitamin A, B, E, plus iron and potassium, and you have got one sweet package.  You can use either fresh sweetcorn (in season) or frozen kernels from the supermarket (during winter). Both will work well.  These particular corn fritters are loaded up with green onion, smoked paprika, and...

Perfect Yorkshire Pudding

Perfect Yorkshire Pudding

Perfect, fluffy Yorkshires are so quick and easy to make, no wonder everybody loves them! The secret to getting gloriously puffed-up Yorkshires is to have the fat sizzling hot and don't open the oven door.

They also make perfect finger food and are a real crowd pleaser!   BE AWARE, the fluffy and airy texture of Yorkshires plus their delicious taste makes it very easy to lose count of...

Double CH Mousse

Double CH Mousse

The marriage made in heaven: CHocolate & CHia (double CH). Not only does one complement the others taste profile, but also they both contain antioxidants and are just super nutritious. I love adding chia seeds in my recipes. They are a fantastic source of fibre and protein, contribute to good digestive health and are full of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are vital for healthy brain functioning.  This delicious mousse is an easy way to whack an impressive breakfast or mid-day snack up in no time. You can't go wrong either way! It lasts for a couple of days in the fridge (not in mine though). ...
