Nduja Fried Eggs with Asparagus Wrapped in Bacon

I think what I’ll miss most about working from home when we return to the office is lunch. Soup and reheated leftovers are great and all, but I have really enjoyed experimenting with tasty quick lunches. Apart from Things on Toast, eggs have featured heavily. I have been making Nduja Fried Eggs regularly after seeing […]

Beef Tagliata Salad

It feels a bit off to be posting a recipe for steak salad on a week where we are all being encouraged to cut our meat consumption. Personally I eat red meat at most once a week and have several meat free days each week. My real meat weakness is bacon, I have to stop […]

Cheese Courgette and Spinach Filo Pie

I’ve been intrigued by Greek Spanakopita for a long time. Well, any excuse to eat more cheese! I’ve never loved any of the versions that I’ve tried though. I then saw Georgina Hayden make this Cheese Courgette and Honey Pie on Saturday Kitchen and I thought it looked delicious. I’ve been playing around with variations since […]

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, […]
