Soft white cake, with strawberries and cream

It was a little difficult coming up with a name for this cake. The main aspect of it is the soft texture of the cake, the fact you do not use baking powder and rely on mixing the egg whites until they form soft peaks...similar to what you would do when making a meringue. So maybe this can be called a meringue cake, hmm... whatever you want to call it, it is a delicious cake to make... and you have the option to put whatever you like in it and over it :D

Honey & pomegranate glazed lamb chops with sweet potato mash

I have no idea why I felt like making honey glazed lamb chops, so I went out and got the chops, as well as the accompanying sweet potato and vegetables. The glaze is both sweet yet tangy, resulting in a juicy lamb chop, full of flavour. I added chilli powder to the sauce to give it that extra kick. I love sweet potato, so i figured having it as a side mash would go well. Therefore I have added the directions for making both the lamb chops and the sweet potato.
