A delicious Cookies and Cream Cake using Oreo cookies!
This post has been prepared in collaboration with Tchibo (Schweiz) AG, but the content and opinions are my own.
I have a weakness for shop-bought biscuits and I fear I may have passed this on to our children. Although I practically grew up in a bakery (my parents ran a busy French-Vietnamese style bakery in Australia during my childhood) and I was spoilt on a daily basis with freshly-baked bread and cakes, the bakery never really produced biscuits or cookies.
A quick and easy Beef Stroganoff with a creamy mushroom and onion sauce.
I have never been a big meat eater, even though there is meat on the table almost every night. If you were to serve me a big bowl of Pho, I’m likely to just eat the noodles; the beef is mostly a distraction.
This Cottage Pie has a rich meat sauce as the base and topped with creamy mashed potatoes.
One of my winter favourites is this Cottage Pie which I have, confusingly, wrongly called a Shepherd’s Pie for most of my life. It appears that a Cottage Pie is made with beef, whilst a Shepherd’s Pie is made with lamb; the latter is also usually (and traditionally) made with leftover roast meat. I’ve had it so wrong all of these years!
A moist and addictive Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Peanut Butter!
I know it sounds cliché, but there really is no better use for over-ripe bananas than to make them into a cake of some sort. I usually reserve such bananas for my Classic Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, but as I was feeling a bit indulgent today, I thought a Chocolate Chip Banana Bread was more fitting. And I should confess that this recipe also contains peanut butter!
