I really liked these lemon tarts because the smooth, creamy, zesty filling was beautifully contrasted with the crisp, crunchy digestive biscuit base. Unlike shop-bought versions of lemon tarts, they're not overly sweet or cloying and the beauty of making them yourself is that you could use different types of flavoured biscuit for the base, such as custard creams, bourbons, Oreos or even gingernuts. However you decide to make your own version, I'd say they're a lovely addition to t...

The slow cooker whole chicken was a triumph. When I went to take the chicken out of the slow cooker the meat was so tender that it simply fell off the bone and it was complemented by the lovely soft new potatoes and sweet carrots.
