Both my children adore french toast whether it be a sweet or savoury version and PB & J is super popular here in the US so I thought combining the two would be a definite hit, and it was!
In England I only ever really baked round or square cakes or cupcakes but on arrival here in the USA, I quickly leaned that the sheet cake was the most popular form of cake. It is so versatile, I soon realised why. This strawberry shortcake sheet cake is a nod to the American sheet pan cake but maintaining a little of my english heritage with the strawberries and cream (think afternoon tea, scones with jam and cream or Victoria sponge with jam and cream) and it is totally delicious.
Pie is huge here in the USA but not as we know it in the uk. Pie here is sweet and delicious. I was so excited at thanksgiving when I made my first sweet potato pie and pumpkin pie. But here in Miami, a super popular pie is coconut cream pie. Give this recipe a try and you will soon understand why!
So the Americans call biscuits what we would be more likely to call a scone in the UK or if placed into a stew of some-kind, maybe a dumpling. As with scones, they can be both sweet or savoury – but they are super popular here. This cheddar scone is wonderful served with manchego cheese and prosciutto or my favourite of brie and caramelised red onions.
This rich decadent chocolate cake smothered in a chocolate hazelnut ganache is heaven in a bite. Decorate with chocolate eggs to make it an easter cake, candles for a birthday…..It is so good that it is perfect for any special occasion.
Chocolate, peanuts, peanut butter……..Need I say anymore??? You might not know that peanuts are not nuts but legumes, despite their name.
So porridge often has a bad reputation for being plain and boring – these delicious baked oats will dispel any of those previous thoughts – and super easy to make too. Start your day the baked oat way!
My love for artichokes first blossomed when we lived in Valencia in Spain and I ate them every single day. Now we have moved to Miami, I am reigniting that love as they are so readily available and so so delicious. This is a great dish to place in the centre of the dinner table and let everyone share.
So here in Miami the sun shines most days, the beach is almost always in view, the sound of the waves hitting the sand……okay, okay you get it – it is a beach holiday vibe all year round, and beaches and holidays almost always include a cocktail of some kind so I thought it fitting to add in this bright and fresh cocktail to my Miami theme. Enjoy!
Who doesn’t love mac n cheese? Well this is a no mac version using cauliflower instead so low carb and getting those veggies in!
