One Pot Cajun Chicken with Chorizo and Rice

I have been making different versions of this over the years but never bothered sharing it here. The reason? I usually make it in the heart of Winter when I just want a quick tasty one pot meal after work and the light is never good enough for photos. However, after 274 months of lockdown, […]

Vegetable Bake with Mash

I haven’t shared a new recipe in almost a month, which is most unlike me. Despite lockdown and all this *gestures wildly at the whole world*, I have had quite a hectic few weeks. I’ve been lucky to have 2 family weddings in the last week. It has been such a joy to have time […]

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. […]

Beef and Black Bean Enchiladas

Whenever I make food like this I can’t help but think of Billy Connolly’s bit where he is talking about Mexican Food and says it’s all the same, just folded differently! Funny and all as that is, I imagine he is picturing Tex Mex food and hugely offending the people of Mexico.

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 […]
