Potato Salad

It feels almost disloyal to post this potato salad recipe. This Creamy Potato Salad with Chorizo is my original and favourite potato salad, based on my mother’s recipe. Whenever we have a barbecue I make a big batch of that salad. But it is always nice to try new things and I’ve come around to […]

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 […]

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 […]
