Black and Blueberry Friands

Traditionally they're oval-shaped but as few of us have special friand tins, small bun tins work perfectly well. The cakes are very quick and easy to make and although they're best eaten on the day they're made, they freeze well.

Six Ingredient Chocolate Hazelnut Balls

These are so easy to make and require only six ingredients. As if that wasn't enough, they have heaps of healthy benefits too! Hazelnuts contain heaps of protein and good fats, and cacao is packed with antioxidants, so they're pretty good for you, even if they don't look it!

Rhubarb and Raspberry Crumble

I like the flavour combination of the raspberries with the rhubarb, though of course you can mix and match using whatever you have handy, or be a purist and just stick to rhubarb alone (no pun intended).

Matzo Tiramisu

Tiramisu is one of those dishes that benefits greatly from being allowed to rest so the flavours can really mingle together. The Coffee mix liquid moistens the matzo right through although you don't even have to tell anyone that there's matzo in it. And of course you don't even have to tell them you used gluten-free matzo.

Raw Carrot Cake

Keep in the freezer so you can always have a healthy treat on hand when unexpected guests descend on you! Once set in the freezer, I like to cut into slices, so its ready to serve when needed. If you don't like sultanas you could add dried pineapple pieces.

Rockin' Raw Raspberry Pie

There's absolutely nothing wrong with having a sweet tooth or looking forward to a delicious dessert to complete a healthy meal but with science now telling us sugar may actually be worse than salt for raising blood pressure, it makes good sense to try and find recipes that deliver healthier but still delicious desserts, some of which may even be completely sugar-free.

Rose Rice Pudding Recipe

I know how to clear a room. All I need is a can, a tin opener and a spoon. My guilty secret is Ambrosia Devon Creamed Rice straight from the can or if I can be bothered, heated in a saucepan. I LOVE rice pudding.

Amaretti Berry Crumbles

Adding Amaretti biscuits to the crumble mix gives it a lovely lift of almondy flavour that marries so well with fruit, especially blackberries and raspberries. I pinched the idea from the excellent Mark Hix but went a step further this time and added a slug of Amaretti liqueur to the fruit.

Easy Cherry and Banana No Churn Ice-Cream Recipe

I'm not a Mum who treats sugar as the devil. I have a very sensible (well I think so) theory that by saying something's off limits you create all kinds of both negative and exciting connotations. Dieting, giving up smoking, stopping dating unsuitable men... by saying it's off limits all of a sudden we all want it more. So this recipe is a welcome surprise.

I am reaching the terrified stage. I've done the hypno birthing course. I've re read all my birthing books. I'm trying to keep my feet up. But there's no getting away from the fact I'm basically scared. I don't especially like giving birth. For me, it hurts that bit too much. Admittedly my second son's birth was a positive experience overall. But it still bloody hurt.

Raspberry Syllabub Trifle

Syllabub - a sort of boozy sweetened cream - is one of those old English desserts that's mostly fallen out of favour but deserves a renaissance. It makes a wonderfully light cloudy topping for this almost equally old-fashioned pud, the sherry trifle.
