Easy Garlic and Chive Cashew Cheese

wp-1485693719198.jpg

It would be fair to say I’ve become rather obsessed with making my own cashew cheese.

I’m a sucker for cute looking confectionary and when you add the Christmas element to the mix these little puddings are hitting all the baking bases for me in one! The idea for these was born out of buying the little holly and ivy decorations that you see adorning the tops, I thought how sweet […]

  I’ve always liked houmous. I’ve been mindlessly dipping carrot sticks and crisps into it for years without thinking there was any more joy to be eked out from this humble dip. I certainly never considered making it myself. The little pots from the supermarket are tasty enough – why trouble yourself with the hassle […]
