Jennifer along with her chefs and nutritional experts have spent time creating some loved dishes here at Balance Box. Here are some below that you can try yourself at home.

Boozey oranges in chocolate sauce

Chocolate sauce and fruit is my fool-proof fallback for dessert;  it really is the ultimate in simplicity, while at the same time being utterly indulgent!

Most fans of chocolate sauce will have their own favorite recipe; mine relies on nothing more than chocolate and a splash of milk.  The trick, I find, is to use the best chocolate you can get, as there are no other ingredients involved which can compensate for any lack of taste or quality.

Garlic mushrooms on toast with Goats Curd

This dish is a childhood favourite, reminding me always of damp afternoons spent picking mushrooms in the woods near my family home.  As a special treat, a steaming plate of sautéed mushrooms was sometimes topped off with a luxurious dollop of goats curd, and that’s how I love to eat them today, with toast to mop up all the delicious juices.

Bubble & Squeak with Poached Eggs

A delicious, heartwarming bubble and squeak is a great way to start the day, particularly if you’ve over indulged the night before!  I can’t resist the sound of it bubbling and squeaking as you fry it up in the pan. Usually I make this with left over vegetables from the day before, so there is minimal cooking involved, but if you don’t have left over veggies, then start from scratch and use whatever veg is in season.

Aromatic Chicken and Corn Noodle Soup

For this recipe I wanted to take what I think is a classic in comfort food – chicken and corn noodle soup – and give it a twist. For me, the fundamental flavours of South East Asian cuisine – ginger, lime, fish sauce – are a perfect match for the bland warmth of a wholesome noodle soup. Try it and you’ll agree that it’s definitely one to curl up with on the sofa!
