Pistachio, Honey and Banana Muffins (sugar free!!)

It seems to me that everyone is trying to cut down on their sugar intake this year and I'm not surprised after watching the recent 'Jamie's Sugar Rush' programme. It's shocking how much sugar is added to our store bought foods - most of the time without us even knowing! ( Sorry didn't intend to use that much sibilance there, must be the english language student within me.) Anyway, my tastebuds and no doubt yours too are now accustomed to foods that are packed full of sugar and so of course we are naturally going to miss it if it's taken away.

Roll up...roll up: Mango and Passion Fruit Swiss Roll

There's something so tempting about a swiss roll. What you see is not what you get until you are ready to break them and uncase all their hidden treasures within. That's what I like.

Wild Mushroom and Thyme Risotto

Risotto is essentially at the essence of comfort food. Now it's September and getting towards that time of year again when the books are out and pencil cases at the ready for college, it all reminds me that Autumn is well on its way and what better way to eat than with a warm and reassuring bowl-full of all things good with this season to come. Mushrooms!
