Crunchy Fish Tacos

This is a recipe that has been languishing in my drafts folder for quite some time. I’m not really sure why, it is an ideal Summer dish but I have been stressing about getting it right for some time. That is daft really, you can’t get it wrong! Sweet, spicy, fresh, creamy and zesty, these […]

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, […]

Zaalouk or Moroccan Aubergine and Tomato Salad

I had never heard of Zaalouk until John Gregory Smith made it on Sunday Brunch a few months ago. It is a Moroccan salad of cooked aubergines, or eggplant, and tomatoes often served at room temperature as a dip or a side dish. And it is absolutely delicious! You can see his original recipe here.

DIY Pot Noodle – Take 2

There has been a lot of discussion lately about the amount of processed foods we as a nation eat. Anytime these types of discussions pop up it makes me slightly uncomfortable. I love to research recipes and cook from scratch, I find it relaxing. However, I realise that I am very lucky in that I […]

Deep Fried Brie with Raspberry Sauce

I know Brie parcels and fried Camembert have been done to death and are considered to be ‘old school’ but sometimes there’s nothing more comforting than cutting into a crispy parcel to find the soft cheese oozing out. Honestly, I actually restrain myself when it comes to cheese posts, I could put one up every […]

Potato and Onion Rosti

Fried potatoes have always been synonymous with comfort food for me. That is probably obvious given my range of potato recipes already on the blog! I’m doing a great job fighting the Irish stereotype here. One of my favourite things to eat growing up was a big fried potato cake that my Mam used to […]
