BBQ Pineapple Recipe

This BBQ Pineapple recipe goes great after a delicious BBQ. I never really thought about using the BBQ to cook anything other than meat but recently, I’ve started using it to cook pizza and now have started to do love BBQ pineapple soaked in Malibu.

With the summer here, I’ve decided to cook other things on the barbecue other than the regular chicken, steak, fish and sweetcorn. A friend introduced me to pineapple and rum on the BBQ so I gave it a go and haven’t looked back since.

Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream

This peanut butter banana ice cream recipe is vegan friendly and delicious. All my friends who have tried it could not believe that there was no cream used and that it contained only three basic ingredients. Peanut butter, banana and some vanilla extract.

I had friends over for dinner this week and decided to try something a bit different to my regular deserts like chocolate brownie or baileys cheesecake. Not only that, but this recipe is so simple to make, meaning that if you’re cooking a dinner party, you can spend more time focusing on the other courses and less about your desert. I really like this recipe as well as bananas and peanut butter are things I always have at home, so I don’t need to run out to the shop to pick up ingredients if I want to make this. It’s a great conversation topic as well as people are always amazed at how simple and delicious it is if they haven’t tried it before. Continue reading

Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe

So we recently received a gift of a Magimix Ice Cream maker, ‘Le Glacier’. Having tried a few different recipes from the recipe booklet that came with the machine, I decided to experiment with my own vanilla ice cream recipe. I’ve made this a few times and have made some minor tweaks on each occasion to try and get the perfect texture and flavour. This included using double cream (which I found way too thick and heavy), whole eggs vs egg yokes only and vanilla extract vs vanilla pods. I think I’ve settled on the recipe below. Continue reading

This is a very easy recipe and goes down very well at dinner parties or for the odd special occasions.

One of my favourites deserts is this non bake baileys cheesecake recipe that my girlfriend makes occasionally.

Credit goes to the her for making it. I was the assistant who fetched the ingredients, took photos and did the washing up. Continue reading
