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.

Clementine and Grand Marnier Tiramisu
I love tiramisu and was really intrigued with this recipe which uses clementine juice to soak the sponge fingers in rather than the traditional coffee. I wasn't disappointed, and though I didn't buy enough mascarpone, so the cream was not as thick as it should have been, the dessert was still wonderful. Perfect for a festive dessert with the use of these christmassy fruits. I'm sure the grand mariner could be substituted for other alcohol, such as brandy, Cointreau or perhaps a sweet sherry. I found the recipe on a blog I have mentioned previously called 'Mondomulia'. The following link will take you to the recipe, complete with beautiful photographs. The blog is well worth a visit.
