If there was ever a brilliant excuse to do something a little special in lockdown, it has to be Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re baking for your sweetheart at home or want to deliver a lovely treat to your nearest and dearest, I’ve rounded up some ideas to brighten up your weekend. Lemon Basil Almond Drizzle Cake This cake is a firm favourite from East by West (page 95). This is a lighter take on a classic lemon drizzle, with a beautiful freshness from the basil. It’s made using a base of ground almonds and tapioca. Chocolate Raspberry Muffin Volcanoes The ultimate Valentine’s Day recipe, these muffin volcanoes are ooey-gooey and oh so delicious. They are not too sweet but just sweet enough thanks to sticky jam and dark chocolate. I make these using a gluten-free flour mix.

Melissa’s 10 Recipes to use up your leftover Pumpkin

Melissa Hemsley Pumpkin Recipes

Hello, Melissa here!

Every year after Halloween around 12.8 million pumpkins go to waste so let’s embrace the delicious veg & find ways to keep enjoying them all season long (Pumpkins are in season October-February/March). So if you’ve found yourself with lots of squash & pumpkins and aren’t sure what to do with them then here are a few of my favourite Autumnal recipes for loving your leftovers and making your meals and money go further. Feel free to swap all the squash in these recipes for pumpkin!

And if you’re feeling even more inspired to use your Pumpkins then why not try grating them into hearty Lasagnes & delicious Gratins. For seasonal breakfasts, try pumpkin porridge or grate it and simmer with apples and cinnamon for a lovely porridge topping or with yoghurt. Roast it and scoop out the tender flesh when it cools slightly before turning into pumpkin puree which you can then freeze or make pumpkin pies or tarts- delicious! And don’t forget about the seeds- wash & dry them then roast for 15 mins in 200c with lots of salt & vinegar or your favourite spices and eat as a snack or in salads or on top of soups or roasted pumpkin hummus. The possibilities are endless!

I’ve shared a few recipes below from my cookbook Eat Green too, so if you’ve got that then look out for my Pumpkin & Sage Risotto, HasselBack Squash, Roasted Squash with Mojo Verde, Squash & Lentil Curry and my Autumnal Spiced Squash & Kale Salad.
