Introducing SWOODLES (yes, that’s sweet potato noodles)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, finely sliced
2 cloves garlic, finely sliced
20g dried mushrooms, soaked in 400ml hot water
120g shiitake mushrooms, roughly torn
300g mini portobello mushrooms, thickly sliced
450g closed cup chestnut mushrooms, quartered
2 tbsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
2 tbsp plain flour
100g spinach
2 x 300g sweet potato tagliatelle
30g Sainsbury's Italian hard cheese, grated


1. Heat the oil in a very large frying pan over a medium heat and cook the onion for 5-6 minutes until soft. Add the garlic and continue to cook for a further 1-2 minutes.
2. When the dried mushrooms are soft, remove them from the hot water with a slotted spoon, reserving the liquid. Add them to the pan along with all the other mushrooms and the fresh thyme. Cook for 4-5 minutes until the mushrooms have started to cook down. Sprinkle over the flour and continue to cook for a further 2-3 minutes. Add the reserved mushroom liquid and bring to a simmer. Cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring frequently, until the cooking liquid has reduced to a thick sauce.
3. Add the spinach to the pan. Leave to wilt for a couple of minutes, then stir through. Season with black pepper.
4. Meanwhile, cook the sweet potato tagliatelle according to the instructions on the packet. Serve the tagliatelle with mushroom ragu topped with the Italian hard cheese.

150g medjool dates, pitted
1½ tbsp cocoa powder
2½ tbsp maple syrup
150g dark chocolate, around 70% cocoa solids

2. Place the peanuts for the caramel layer in a food processor and blitz until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the medjool dates and the maple syrup and blend again until a dough is formed.
3. Place a small teaspoonful of the mixture in your hand and flatten out. Place a peanut in the middle and bring the sides up to cover it, then roll into a small ball and lay on a tray. Repeat with the remaining mixture until you have 25 balls. Leave in the fridge to firm up for 15 minutes.
4. Blitz the peanuts for the chocolate layer until they resemble fine breadcrumbs, then add the dates, cocoa powder and maple syrup until it comes together. Place a generous teaspoon of the mixture in your hand and flatten, then place one of the caramel balls in the middle and work the mixture around them. Roll again to make a ball and place back in the fridge to firm up for another 15 minutes.
5. Meanwhile, melt the dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring regularly until completely melted. Leave aside to cool for around 5 minutes. Line a large tray with greaseproof paper.

3. Cover the mixture and chill in the refrigerator overnight or until very cold. Pour into a wide freezable container, then freeze for 45 minutes. Remove from the freezer and give a vigorous stir with a whisk, breaking up any frozen sections.
4. Place back in the freezer and check every 30 minutes, whisking well each time. After 1½-2 hours, it should be quite thick. Carefully fold in most of the Oreo pieces, scattering the remainder over the top. Cover and freeze until solid.

Because it’s always somebody’s birthday somewhere 🎂

225g unsalted butter, softened
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
225g self-raising flour, sifted
½ tsp baking powder
2 tbsp whole milk

250g unsalted butter, softened
350g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp salt
4 tbsp double cream

100g strawberry jam
75g strawberries, hulled
75g raspberries

1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/gas mark 5. Grease and line three 18cm loose bottomed sandwich cake tins.
2. In a stand mixer, add the sugar and butter and beat on a medium speed for 4-5 minutes until light and fluffy. Add the beaten eggs, bit by bit, beating well after each addition and adding a little flour if it starts to curdle.
3. Once all the eggs are incorporated, add the flour, baking powder and milk and beat briefly until just combined. Finish off with a flexible spatula if need be to avoid over-beating in the mixer.
4. Divide the mixture between the tins, gently smoothing the surface so they are even. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and the cake springs back when lightly pressed with a finger. Turn out onto a cooling rack and leave to cool completely.

Close your eyes and pretend it’s summer already 🙈

400g strawberries
3 tbsp elderflower cordial
350g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
1 tsp baking powder
75g cold, unsalted butter, diced
75g caster sugar
175ml buttermilk
1 medium egg, beaten
227g clotted cream, to serve


1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas mark 7 and place a baking sheet in the oven. Finely dice 50g of the strawberries and place into a small bowl along with 1 tbsp of the elderflower cordial and set aside.
2. Combine the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Rub in the butter with your fingers until the mixture resembles fresh breadcrumbs. Stir in 50g of the sugar.
3. Remove the strawberries from the bowl using a slotted spoon to reserve the cordial. Add the strawberries and the buttermilk to the bowl and combine quickly using a butter knife until it comes together to form a rough dough.
4. Tip the dough out on to a lightly floured surface and knead gently once or twice so that it becomes a bit smoother. Pat it out until it’s about 4cm thick. Then, using a 5-6cm cutter, stamp out 5 scones, without twisting or turning the dough. Reform the leftover dough, and stamp out another 5 scones. Brush the tops with beaten egg, then place on the hot baking tray. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden and well-risen.
5. While the scones are baking, tip the reserved elderflower cordial used for soaking into a pan along with the remaining 2 tbsp and the remaining 25g caster sugar. Add 150ml water and bring to the boil. Boil for about 10 minutes, until syrupy.6Once the scones are baked, brush the tops with the syrup. Quarter the remaining strawberries and toss with any remaining syrup. Enjoy the scones warm or cold with the strawberries and clotted cream.
