Carrot Courgette and Halloumi Fritters

  This is another recipe that has been languishing in my drafts folder for quite a while. Inspired by a recipe I made while working in Roots, I have been playing around with these fritters for quite some time. I finally settled on this recipe here and when catering for a party earlier this year […]

Veggie Chilli

    I’ve been awol again! Life has been so busy these last few weeks but it’s been all nice things happening. Work is busy and I’ve had lots of lovely family days with two communions to go to. At these times my blog has to take a back seat, but I’ve been itching to share […]

Pasta Alla Norma

Hello!! It’s been a while. While I’ve missed blogging I needed to take a break for a bit. Without boring you all too much the last few months have been strange and a bit stressful so I decided to give myself some time off.  But I had a great Christmas and lots of lovely family […]

Brussels Sprouts, Apple and Halloumi Salad

  I know it’s unusual to post a salad recipe at this time of year. Normally I’m sharing recipes for comfort dinners or cake but for some reason I’ve been eating a lot of fresh light meals lately. That’s not a bad thing, there has been plenty of indulgent food on my table too!

Roast Salmon with Asparagus and Hollandaise Sauce

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, […]

Cheesy Vegetable Lasagne

I gave myself a little break from the blog last week. It was only when I logged back in last night that I realised the blog is now five years old! You’ve no idea what an achievement this is for me, I never stick at a hobby for a long time. It was also my […]

Cauliflower and Giant Couscous Salad

At this time of year I love to experiment with hearty salads. I was recently flicking through Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook Cravings for the hundredth time and spotted her recipe for Roasted Cauliflower, Feta and Orzo Salad. I used to make it all the time when I first bought the book. It is a great recipe, […]
