One Pot Chicken with Creamy Pasta

This blog was 10 years old last month and it completely passed me by! Stunned I’ve managed to keep it going this long to be honest. I don’t think people even read food blogs anymore and a lot of my favourite bloggers have stopped publishing new recipes. But as I’m not a video type person […]

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.

Asparagus Cheese and Ham Tart

We are well into asparagus season now and I was scrolling through these recipes from Ottolenghi for inspiration. I spotted the tart and thought about the tart I like to make myself. It was only then I realised that I have never published it here! The reason for that is probably because it is so […]

I know technically we are at the end of asparagus season but I have noticed that there are still some bunches of Irish asparagus in the shops so I feel ok to post this. As you can probably tell from reading this blog, I am not the biggest fan of seafood. I do eat it, […]

Spring Vegetable Pasta Salad

However, my last two posts for this and my Chocolate Truffle Cake and all the comments etc. disappeared. So I have recovered them and am […]

Pea and Broccoli Soup

Nigella has a recipe in Simply Nigella for a nice Pea and Broccoli Soup. It looks very fresh and very healthy. This recipe is not quite as healthy. It’s not bad for you or anything, I’ve just used stock and a little dairy. And then I stuck cheesy croutons on top.

Asparagus Fennel and Orange Salad

I recently saw a post for a shaved asparagus recipe and I thought it looked so elegant I’d have to give it a go. My efforts don’t look quite as elegant!
