Vanilla Custard Sauce (British)

Vanilla Custard Sauce (British) by Marlin Rinehart

This sauce is served over steamed puddings, fruit crisps (crumbles), and any dessert that would be enhanced by a creamy vanilla sauce. It's the perfect homemade replacement for Byrd's Custard powder. One warning, however: 1) use a small, "thick-bottom" saucepan, and 2) cook over low heat and don't allow the mixture to boil or it will…

Scottish Shortbread

Healthy Fruit and Nut bars

Healthy Fruit and Nut bars by Angie Wilkes

Homemade version of Nak'd bars. Easy to make, very versatile. If you love the taste of Nak’d bars, but you’re not so keen on the price, try making your own – you won’t believe how easy these are to make. This is the basic recipe for the bars, but you can add whatever flavourings you want. I’ve used vanilla, but I suggest…

Orange Chicken and Mango Salad by Hungry Jenny

This is an easy, speedy salad to make if you’re looking for a light dish. I like to make this as a small dinner if I plan to go to an exercise class later that evening – because it’s also packed with the high protein, fast-digesting food you’d need for a good workout!
