Chicken fajitas are on the menu here every week because they're so quick and easy to make. We like ours just as they come, but feel free to add grated cheese, soured cream, guacomole according to taste.

This dip is so easy to make and can be flavoured with many different rubs. For a more traditional houmous replace the rub with 1 tsp ground cumin.

Stollen is made in Germany at Christmas time. These stollen bites make great treats over the festive period, but also go down well over the rest of the year as well!
