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 […]

Steak Burrito Bowl with Chipotle Dressing

I adore Mexican food with it’s bright colours and flavours. It is not too spicy and suits most palates which makes it a real crowd pleaser. In fact, it is my favourite food the morning after an indulgent night. A plate of Huevos Rancheros and I am good as new again. Well, a bit better […]

Marinated Feta

It’s been over two months since I posted a recipe, I don’t think I’ve ever taken a break this long before. But, you know, life and all that. A few weeks ago I was toying with the idea of signing up to those Masterclass workshops that are heavily promoted at the moment. While looking into […]

Easy Butter Chicken

Happy 2021! It’s been quite the year already, hasn’t it? These photos show why I usually post breakfast recipes at this time of year as the late afternoon light is dreadful for pictures. To be honest, I probably should have held off posting this Easy Butter Chicken until I had better photos, but I have […]

One Pot Cajun Chicken with Chorizo and Rice

I have been making different versions of this over the years but never bothered sharing it here. The reason? I usually make it in the heart of Winter when I just want a quick tasty one pot meal after work and the light is never good enough for photos. However, after 274 months of lockdown, […]

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 […]

Spiced Tomato and Lentil Soup

I drafted this post and scheduled it to publish last week. And then we got a late burst of Summer. So I held off and the temperatures most obliging plunged over the last couple of days. No better time to post a simple recipe for a warming, filling soup.

Squash Pear and Goats’ Cheese Salad with Black Pudding

I just love this time of year. Cosy dark nights, wearing chunky knit jumpers and boots, what’s not to love! Himself thinks I’m a total weirdo. I also love playing with different autumnal flavours such as this squash and pear. I always like to eat a good salad and once we move out of summer, […]
