Easy Chilli Roast Potatoes

Easy chilli roast potatoes

I know I havn't posted anything in while, and I do apologise for this. I've been really busy with exams, which are finally over (yay!) So I can now concentrate more on the blog! :)

I have been wanting to post these for a while but just havn't had the chance to. These roast potatoes are super easy to make and are bursting with flavour. I made these as a side dish for our family roast dinner, but to be honest I'd eat these a meal it self, they're that good. The nice part about this recipe is that you can make it as chilli as you want, I added one and half teaspoons of chilli powder, I love chilli food, but you can add more or less depending on how spicy you want it.

Coffee Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

Coffee chocolate chip shortbread cookies
Three exams done three more to go, so what do I decide to do half way through my exams? Bake a batch of shortbread cookies! These shortbread cookies are little different to your regular ones as first of all they have coffee in them and secondly they contain dark muscavado sugar which gives them a really nice treacly taste.

Lime Delight

Lime Delight
First week of 2013! There's just not enough days in a year. For me 2012 went really quickly, I had a few exams during the summer, unfortunately I still have some to do, in fact I have an exam next week. Which I should really be preparing for, but I am an expert procrastinator and usually leave the important things till last minute.

However I have done something useful which is...creating this beautiful zesty dessert. My mother invited a few family friends for New Years day and asked me to make a nice dessert for the guests. Now I love making desserts, especially chocolate ones, however a lot of the elders in my culture do not like chocolate, actually they don't like anything sweet unless it's a traditional sweet dish. After a lot of thinking on what to make, I decided to combine sweet and tang and created this crowd pleasing dessert.
