lemon linguine Method When I was on honeymoon, some years ago now, I came across these fantastic Sicilian lemons. Their skin is really fragrant in cooking and they are very juicy too. You can use them roasted with fish, sliced very thinly in salads, and halved and put inside chicken. When roasted they go all jammy. This pasta recipe is great to use them in too, so try and find some – if you can’t find any, use normal lemons instead.

Christmas Tree Meringue Cookies I’m all over the place with desserts lately, aren’t I? But you should know by now that I switch between whimsical and rustic desserts like the Kardashians go in out of the news. These are easy to make and even more fun to receive, because-who doesn’t like a bit of whimsy during the holidays? For shipping, I would suggest finishing the meringue cookies with something less fragile like a red M&M or Sixlet, rather than the piped chocolate stars.

Ham in Coca-Cola Brought to you by Nigella Lawson, this traditional recipe from the Deep South, involves simmering a juicy ham joint in sweet spiky cola This recipe is from How to Eat, with some rejigging (just because it's not in my nature to leave completely alone) and I don't apologise for reproducing, or rather recasting, it because I simply cannot urge you to try this strongly enough. The first time I made it, it was, to be frank, really just out of amused interest. I'd heard, and read, about this culinary tradition from the deep South, but wasn't expecting it, in all honesty, to be any good. The truth is it's magnificent, and makes converts of anyone who eats it. But, if you think about it, it's not surprising it should work: the sweet, spiky drink just infuses it with spirit of barbecue.

Jamie's Home Cooking Skills The classic pastas to serve this with are spaghetti, tagliatelle and penne, but this sauce can also be used for many other things, like filling cannelloni or layering up a lasagne.

Pink Meringue Kiss Cookies Pink Meringue Kisses ~ Light and almost ethereal these meringue kisses have been slightly tinted pink for a Valentine’s dessert touch. Pink Meringue Kiss Cookies I also made one with chocolate as a variation, but left the rest plain since that’s how Matt likes them. As for me, I have to admit, I’m not a meringue fan. I love the way they look and I love to make them, but I don’t like the texture.

How to make Swiss Meringue Buttercream Frosting Baking Basics: How to make Swiss Meringue Buttercream Frosting There are many ways and minor variations to making Swiss meringue frosting.

From there the meringue takes on the addition of having butter creamed into it. It is my favorite out of all the buttercream frosting types.

I hold my hands up to that. Fluffy Italian Meringue Frosting Also known as the “7 Minute Frosting”. It is white and fluffy (like marshmallow fluff!), which makes it a great alternative if you prefer something lighter than the traditional buttercream frosting. Because of its airiness, it definitely works best as a frosting or topping and not as a filling. I used it in between the layers of a coconut cake, but didn’t like how the frosting was deflated by the weight of the top layers. For the bronze swirl effect, cover the cake with a thin crumb coat and spread a thick layer of frosting over the crumb coat with an offset spatula.
