Ratatouille, now there’s a blast from the past! My mother used to make this regularly in the 80s when it was fashionable and I thought it was so fancy. She used a recipe from a huge Marguerite Patten cookbook that she got as a wedding present.
A nice rich meat ragu is very popular in my house and I make sure to always have some in the freezer for a quick dinner. As I have cut back on meat for several reasons, I wanted to master a vegetarian version to rival my Bolognese Sauce for flavour. I realise the very phrase […]
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 […]

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 […]
