Turkish Chicken Salad

I’ll give you two guesses where we were on holidays this month! I’d never been to Turkey before and spent a week there with friends in a gorgeous town where there were very few tourists. This meant plenty of beautiful local restaurants serving the most amazing traditional food. Heaven. 

Spaghetti Carbonara

Apologies in advance to any Italians who stumble across my blog, this is not a traditional carbonara. I’ve been making different versions of Spaghetti Carbonara for over 20 years. When I first met himself, it was his favourite dinner. Being keen to impress I used to make it fairly regularly. But that version of carbonara […]

Smoky Aubergine Dip

I know, another aubergine recipe again so quickly. It’s such a versatile vegetable though and I do love it. In the last year on holidays I had an absolutely gorgeous dish of aubergine carpaccio in a restaurant in Ibiza, called Aubergine, funnily enough. If you’re ever there I highly recommend it for a really special […]

Mushroom and Aubergine Bolognese

A nice rich meat ragu is very popular in my house and I make sure to always have some in the freezer for a quick dinner. As I have cut back on meat for several reasons, I wanted to master a vegetarian version to rival my Bolognese Sauce for flavour. I realise the very phrase […]

Baked Eggs with Beans

While I don’t wan’t to talk about bloody c*v*d, we started the new year in isolation. Not the best start to 2022 but thankfully we were both fine, bored but fine. As part of the endless cooking that happened for the week, I made this Baked Eggs with Beans again. We were lucky to get […]

One Pot Moroccan Chicken with Couscous

  Ever since I bought a book from the Rukmini Iyer Roasting Tin series I have been playing around more with one pot dishes. Her books are fabulous and full of inspiration, I highly recommend them. To be honest during the week I am slow to turn on the oven and just want food I […]

Nduja Fried Eggs with Asparagus Wrapped in Bacon

I think what I’ll miss most about working from home when we return to the office is lunch. Soup and reheated leftovers are great and all, but I have really enjoyed experimenting with tasty quick lunches. Apart from Things on Toast, eggs have featured heavily. I have been making Nduja Fried Eggs regularly after seeing […]

Beef Tagliata Salad

It feels a bit off to be posting a recipe for steak salad on a week where we are all being encouraged to cut our meat consumption. Personally I eat red meat at most once a week and have several meat free days each week. My real meat weakness is bacon, I have to stop […]
