You know those days when you are really up for a bit of a faff in the kitchen? When you want to enjoy some time gratuitously wasted in tinkering. To decadently fritter away a couple of hours making something wonderful but totally pointless. Well, that was me yesterday.

Who doesn't love to slurp the leftover milk from their favourite cereal in the mornings? I have taken the sweet milk from soaked cereal and turned it into a creamy panna cotta that is both nostalgic and delicious. You can use your favourite cereal for this recipe and the same method will apply.

A brief began to write itself...to sneak nutritionally beneficial ingredients into something bracingly cold and luxuriously smooth - to create trojan horse ice creams, if you will. I set to work.

What To Do With Leftover Christmas Cake

Kathy Slack | Posted 09.01.2017 | UK Lifestyle
Kathy Slack

At least that's what happens in our family. Mum always makes one (complete with teeth-breaking icing which I love - fondant is dirty word in our family), has the odd slice over Christmas and then, come the New Year, she banishes all leftover Christmas cake from the house and foists it onto me

9 Reasons Why People Who Hate Christmas Pudding Are 100% Correct

Naughty Guilt Free Desserts...

Laura Krippner | Posted 21.10.2016 | UK Lifestyle
Laura Krippner

This week is National Baking week, so it's only appropriate to challenge those who are making it their life's mission to promote 'guilt free desserts'. Simply by calling a dessert or treat 'guilt free' necessarily implies that all others are 'guilty'. Clearly this is a load of rubbish.

Little Red Apples

They are an eating apple, crisp, sweet and tart, and I wanted to make something that showcased their lovely red-flushed flesh. You can, though, make this with any good eating apple - it is a version of a classic French apple tart, but using puff in place of sweet dessert pastry.

Farmer's Daughter, Los Angeles

Richard Brownlie-Marshall

When visiting Los Angeles it's hard to decide which area to call home. Are you more Bellini's in Beverley Hills or happy hour in WeHo, the pavements in Downtown or the sand of Long Beach. And if you think area is difficult, the next step is choosing the right hotel. Los Angeles has something for everyone, and on my most recent trip, I discovered that there's no place quite like Farmer's Daughter.

Rhubarb, Marzipan and Orange Blossom Strudel

Kathy Slack

Today I want to quench my rhubarb thirst, but also use up some leftovers. I have half a block of marzipan in the larder and half a box of filo pastry going begging. Also, I've been thinking about baklava a lot lately (it happens that way sometimes) so I feel a plan coming neatly together....

Five Minute No-Bake Brownie Bites

I like to pop these in the freezer for about an hour and then take them out for a few minutes before serving. This recipe doesn't make too many but they're rich and moreish and you could always double the recipe if you're craving more!

Oh my word I've never seen so many herbs in the garden! This spell of warm wet weather has sent everything into a growing frenzy. The rocket is living up to its name - 'wild'. The parsley is going to need mowing if it grows another inch.

Cheesecakes are a fantastic, easy dessert to rustle up when you're entertaining.

There is nothing quite as satisfying as unwrapping a decadent macaron. They are the epitome of luxury, a pure indulgence and largely known as the beloved cookie of Parisian teahouses. But behind their pastel shades and beautiful textures the art of macarons is a technical science with inspiration taken from sweets, sensations, fragrances and encounters.

These clean eating desserts all take minimal time to throw together. They don't contain hundreds of ingredients, and they do have a nutritious value. They should satisfy a sweet urge without you hitting the local dessert bar for a double chocolate chip mega waffle with ice cream, peanut butter cups, syrup, and a side order of pancakes!

Peanut Butter 'Raweos'

Emma Hollingsworth | Posted 03.09.2016 | UK Lifestyle
Emma Hollingsworth

These peanut butter Raweos are, in my humble opinion, a squillion times better than their unhealthy counterparts. They only have SIX ingredients (that's 17 less than the PBOs' 23) and there's nothing genetically modified about them (if you check the back of a PBO packet you'll see that a number of their ingredients are GM - scary).
