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!

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?!

Aubergine Chickpea and Tomato Curry

People think food bloggers are constantly whipping up exotic meals in 10 minutes for dinner. Not true. Well, not in my case anyway. I’m fairly predictable, particularly midweek when I usually make some sort of a pasta dinner, a chicken salad, something with steak and a curry.
