TWD - Mulled Wine Jammers


This week’s Tuesday with Dorie recipe is Mulled Wine Jammers - a vanilla sable topped with spiced fruit jam and streusel.

Instead of making Dorie’s jam, I used some Christmas jam that I already had. As it was also a spiced jam, I figured it was a viable substitute.

These biscuits are buttery, light and delicious.

WWDH - Spiced Walnut Caramels


 This week’s Wednesday with Donna Hay recipe is Spiced Walnut Caramels. They started life as Spiced Pecan Caramels, but I didn’t have pecans.

The spices are very Christmassy- cloves and nutmeg.

I was able to try these and I think they are delish! I love a caramel- and homemade caramels are even better.

WWDH - Mustard and Fennel Pork


 This week’s Wednesday with Donna Hay recipe is Mustard and Fennel Pork. The recipe is online here.

I took liberties with this recipe. I left out the skewers and chose my own sides, including my own choice of fennel salad that I’d already made.

TWD - Apple Pandowdy


This week’s Tuesday with Dorie recipe is Apple Pandowdy.

This dessert comprises sliced apples topped with pastry. I went off piste and used filo pastry, because it was supposed to use up pastry scraps, so I wasn’t going to make pastry.


My Pandowdy might look dowdy, but it tasted good - in the tradition of apple pie, you can’t go wrong with apples and pastry.

TWD - Pecan Butterscotch Shortbreads - with Walnuts




This week’s Tuesday with Dorie recipe is Peacan Butterscotch Shortbreads. Mine are actually Walnut Butterscotch Shortbreafs.

These biscuits are flavoured with brown sugar, chocolate and nuts.

They are quite delicate, so they made the perfect icecream sandwich:

WWDH - One Pot Ginger Chicken

This week’s Wednesday with Donna Hay recipe is One Pot Ginger Chicken, from Donna’s new book, One Pan Perfect.

Donna was inspired by Hainanese Chicken with the flavours in this dish - ginger, chilli, garlic.



 This is a really tasty and healthy dish, and low fuss to make.
