white chocolate & pecan cookies.

There's nothing quite like freshly baked cookies, all chewy, warm and ever so slightly crunchy. These white chocolate and pecan cookies are no different. Taking on sugary candied pecans, creamy white chocolate and a hit of sea salt on a classic cookie recipe base, these are a real winner for anyone with a sweet tooth. And they don't take long to make either...

goat's cheese, aubergine & spinach lasagne.

A super cheesy vegetarian lasagne featuring the lovely goat's products from St. Helen's Farm. Goat's cheese lovers will enjoy the combination with roasted aubergine and wilted spinach. Diners who avoid cow dairy will be a fan because - there's none of that here! Layers of roasted vegetables, a creamy goat's cheese sauce and extra cheese on top for good measure make this a weekend treat or make-ahead meal.

triple chocolate macarons.

Chocolate. Triple chocolate, at that. Could there be anything finer than that first bite into your favourite chocolate bar? Personally, I love a really good milk chocolate or anything with almonds, hazelnuts or pistachios. And so, in teaming up with Expedia and their 2017 calender of foodie experience and events, I was inspired by this month's celebration of all things cocoa at York Chocolate Festival.

This triple chocolate macaron recipe is made up of cocoa infused macaron shells, a Nutella spread filling and a final drizzle of white chocolate. Macarons and chocolate? Yes please!
