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 […]

Loaded Smashed Potatoes

From my last post of a light refreshing salad to these Loaded Smashed Potatoes. Well, life is all about balance I guess. I have been playing around with versions of these for a long time. While I am not a big lover of chips or fries, I couldn’t resist the description of dirty fries on […]

Potato Hash

Now that it’s the 63rd of January (seriously, can you believe it’s still January?!), it’s time for me to get organised and start posting recipes again. Given that it’s the middle of Winter and particularly cold I’m still filling up on comforting carbs, as you can probably tell I’m not one for Dry January, resolutions […]

Potato and Leek Gratin

Cottage Pie

  I recently posed a question on my Instagram stories to ask what were peoples favourite comfort food dishes. There were a lot of the usual suspects there – curries, spag bol, and fish pies. One answer that popped up a couple of times was Shepherds Pie. I replied that I love it too but never […]

Chorizo Potato Cakes

Hello! It’s been too long. The last while has been fairly hectic for me with both good and bad things happening. That’s life I suppose. As a result I took a break from blogging, I just didn’t have the energy or time to write up posts. But I’m back now, with my favourite type of […]

Loaded Twice Baked Potatoes

Last week Elizabeth from Life on Hushabye Farm posted a pic on Instagram of her baked potatoes and I realised I hadn’t made them in ages. So at the weekend I made a blast of my Loaded Twice Baked Potatoes. I was glad to have them when I came home dejected from watching Munster crash […]
