Spiced Tomato and Lentil Soup

I drafted this post and scheduled it to publish last week. And then we got a late burst of Summer. So I held off and the temperatures most obliging plunged over the last couple of days. No better time to post a simple recipe for a warming, filling soup.

Squash Pear and Goats’ Cheese Salad with Black Pudding

I just love this time of year. Cosy dark nights, wearing chunky knit jumpers and boots, what’s not to love! Himself thinks I’m a total weirdo. I also love playing with different autumnal flavours such as this squash and pear. I always like to eat a good salad and once we move out of summer, […]

Loaded Smashed Potatoes

From my last post of a light refreshing salad to these Loaded Smashed Potatoes. Well, life is all about balance I guess. I have been playing around with versions of these for a long time. While I am not a big lover of chips or fries, I couldn’t resist the description of dirty fries on […]

Sweetcorn Avocado and Tomato Salad

  I haven’t posted in almost a month which to be honest isn’t all that unusual at this time of year. I had 2 weeks off work and had no intention of turning on a laptop during this time. We didn’t go anywhere but spent really gorgeous days doing walks and playing tourist near home. […]

Tomato and Cheese Tart

I used to be a Come Dine with Me addict. In the early days I could binge watch them all day on a wet Sunday. Back then I saw someone make a simple tart with pastry, a smearing of mustard, sliced tomatoes and gruyere cheese. It was so easy and I loved it when I […]

Coconut and Lime Pulled Chicken with Kimchi Style Slaw

Now there’s a mouthful of a recipe title for you. I have been meaning to post this recipe for Coconut and Lime Pulled Chicken with Kimchi Style Slaw for quite a while now. In fact, ever since I discovered The Reckless Chef in the West Waterford Festival of Food last year. We were strolling among the […]

Charred Broccoli Caesar Salad

During another day of trying to up my veg intake I remembered a starter dish I had in Dockland in Cork. It was a broccoli Caesar salad with toasted hazelnuts and it was delicious. So when I had a pack of tenderstem broccoli, I decided to be healthy and give it a go. And then […]
