It’s easy to make with only 4 ingredients, and there’s no thermometers needed like in a lot of caramel recipes. Swirl it into ice cream, add a spoonful to your hot chocolate, use...

  I have to admit, I wasn't able to illustrate this recipe without drooling a couple of times! As you can see, this week, we have an amazingly scrummy looking chocolate tart from Rosanne at Like Mam Used to Bake.

She gave us a pick of any of her recipes, so we just had to have this one. I mean, who can't pass up chocolate tart eh? Here's a little bit...

We really enjoyed not only creating this illustration, but browsing through...

  This week, we have one of our very own recipes! It's a deliciously simple chorizo and mushroom spaghetti dish. It takes only 10-12 minutes to make (the amount of time it takes to boil the pasta).
