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 […]
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 […]
I think what I’ll miss most about working from home when we return to the office is lunch.

I adore Mexican food with it’s bright colours and flavours. It is not too spicy and suits most palates which makes it a real crowd pleaser. In fact, it is my favourite food the morning after an indulgent night. A plate of Huevos Rancheros and I am good as new again. Well, a bit better […]
Himself recently brought home a treat of mini chocolate cheesecakes with salted caramel from Bitesize. They were divine. I’m at home eating salads all day and he waltzes in, undoing all my smugness! It wasn’t enough to have a one off treat, I had to go making my own version.
