Lemon Meringue Cheesecake. I love desserts but they are often complicated to make. When I’m entertaining the last thing I want to do is risk a disaster, and believe me it happens. Cream in France is notoriously tricky and last year I made a Pavlova and watched as the cream just slid out from between […]
This dish of lemon chicken en brochettes is really easy to do. Buying thigh meat is better value, juicier and tastier than boneless chicken breast and leaving the skin on with a lemon marinade means that the chicken just melts in the mouth.
