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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Pea Courgette and Fennel Salad

I know it’s still March, I know this is more of a Summer dish so those who cook only with seasonal produce should look away now. I have been cooking with courgettes a lot lately. Given the strange times we are currently living in I find it easy to turn to familiar comfort food. However […]

Roast Root Vegetable Salad with Goats’ Cheese

I’m always looking for ways to eat more veg and to try to be healthier, I’m not always successful. Recently at work I had lunch from Basil deli, which is fab by the way, and one of the salads was a beautiful roast veg salad. I’m not entirely sure of all the ingredients that were […]

Spiced Sweet Potato and Apple Soup

Look at that orange colour. That bowl represents Autumn to me, warm and comforting. Myself and himself went for lunch recently to the Pepperstack. I ordered soup for starter, forgetting that they always give a little cup of soup while you are waiting for your food, a nice touch. That day it was a delicious […]

Meat Free Meals

I don’t normally post on a Monday but I’ve done a little redesign on the site and part of this was introducing a “Meat Free” section. So what better day than Meat Free Monday to post?!
