Bailey’s chocolate cheesecake

Bailey’s liqueur, I’m sure you’ll agree, is delicious! My Aunt wonderfully gave me a bottle recently, but rather than just drinking it (highly probable) I thought I would try and experiment a bit and make a dessert. The end result is this lovely Bailey’s chocolate cheesecake. This is a no bake cheesecake recipe, which is…

Zesty lime and coconut slice

Our lime tree has flourished over the last few years, so much so, that I need to use my limes for something other than just gin and tonics…not that there’s anything wrong with that! This coconut and lime slice is a beautiful blend of sour and sweet but if you can’t get hold of limes;…
