Last year I compiled a round-up of my top recipes for 2014 and it was a fabulous way to relive and share what I thought were the stand-out dishes on DrizzleandDip.com, and I’m doing it again. 2015 was another outstanding year for me and I got to eat some of the most incredible food of my life at Vegas Uncork’d. I munched my way through too many burgers in New York and I ate so many outstanding local restaurants. These are the recipes that I found most delicious and have made again or plan to at some stage. These are also obviously highly recommended for you to try.
I can’t imagine a more delicious way to eat pumpkin. The end.
This is a divinely simply and utterly delicious salad which I adapted from Polpo (now also one of my all-time favourite cook books).
These are all kinds of decadent with sweet and salty flavours.
This simple breakfast or brunch dish is packed with so much umami which is probably why I like it so much.
I literally make this light and healthy salad ALL the time and love it with chicken or fish
I adore beetroot and I adore falafel so this is an all round winner for me.
I put the stake in the ground and end my search for the perfect hot cross bun. These are it. I will make these every Easter from now on.
I found the perfect marshmallow recipe. Pillowy soft and delicious.
2015 was extra exciting because I launched my second cookbook called ‘Sweet’. Its filled with delicious sweet desserts and treats and would make a fabulous Christmas gift #justsaying. I love this orange cake with orange buttercream icing.
This is Neill Anthony’s recipe. Its inspired and completely delicious. It’s a show stopper of a breakfast dish.
I loved all the flavours and crunch in this recipe and so did a few of my friends who tasted it. This is now my go-to recipe for granola.
I have made this recipe so many times I can’t even count. People go mad for it. It’s also a recipe I did at two of my book launch demos and definitely one of my favourites from my book.
This variation of a classic crumble was one of the stand out desserts of the year for me. Served with warm home-made creme anglaise its my new favourite.
if you are ever looking for a cake to eat at breakfast, this is the perfect one. Served with ricotta, fresh stone fruit and a drizzle of honey it is exceptional.
My favourite fudge recipe but this time with vanilla and chocolate malt balls or Maltesers.
I loved this variation of a classic with drippy egg and on sourdough of course.
This is by far the biggest recipe of 2015 and attracts a massive amount of traffic. It’s also very delicious and a few of my friends say they make it all the time now.
I have loved working with the Ball brand as they launched their iconic preserving jars into South Africa and this salsa recipe is one I’ve made and shared a lot. Its packed with flavour and I love it in my favourite salad nachos. I’m so pleased I have a few jars on my shelf for this summer.
This is my grans never-fail easy fruit cake which I’ve adapted with chocolate stout.
This recipe turns the humble chicken breast into something dinner-party-worthy and is also pretty festive.
I made this the other day again when I had the winners of this competition over for a private cooking class in my house. They loved it.
In this recipe I include three textures of corn to create the cornflake cereal milk infusion, and the caramel popcorn and cornflake clusters.
I hope you all have a fabulous holiday if you are taking time off and thanks for stopping by DrizzleandDip.
