Simply good food to share from a mum who likes to feed her kids well. A guide and a little bit of inspiration for those who'd like to cook a bit more but haven't got the time or the energy to meal plan. I'll post daily/weekly updates of recipes that work for me. Good food doesn't have to involve hours of hard work and preparation.

Nigella's no churn coffee ice cream
I made a trio of desserts last week which I forgot to photograph. My favourite chocolate brownies, meringues and this coffee ice cream. I had some of the ice cream left over for a treat on Mothers Day. It was so easy and incredibly quick to make. I found the espresso instant coffee a little bit synthetic. Next time I might add a real shot of espresso coffee for a truer coffee flavour. Ingredients
300ml double cream
175g condensed milk
2 tbsp instant espresso powder
2 tbsp espresso liqueur (or coffee liqueur - I used Tia Maria)
Method Whisk all the ingredients together until soft peaks form, and you have a gorgeous, caffè-latte-coloured airy mixture, and then fill an airtight container and freeze for six hours or overnight.
