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 […]

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 […]

White Chocolate Raspberry and Lemon Fridge Cake

It has been a while since I posted a sweet recipe. I wouldn’t want to give a false impression here, I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth but still find myself making desserts regularly. My oven is a bit temperamental so I try to not use it too much, even though I am making this […]

Roast Aubergine and Cauliflower Salad

I don’t normally post recipes on a Monday but I did not get a chance to put this up last week. I know what you’re thinking, we are in lockdown, surely I have all the time in the world? Well I suppose that’s true but after a few days with a lot of online work […]

Baked Orzo with Courgette and Mozzarella

I saw a lot of talk online earlier this year about the Roasting Tin series of cookbooks by Rukmini Iyer. After lifting my self-imposed ban on buying cookbooks I eventually ordered The Quick Roasting Tin. My only regret was that I didn’t order it sooner! It is a fab book and I can’t wait for next one […]
