Charred Broccoli Caesar Salad

During another day of trying to up my veg intake I remembered a starter dish I had in Dockland in Cork. It was a broccoli Caesar salad with toasted hazelnuts and it was delicious. So when I had a pack of tenderstem broccoli, I decided to be healthy and give it a go. And then […]

Baked Orzo with Courgette and Mozzarella

I saw a lot of talk online earlier this year about the Roasting Tin series of cookbooks by Rukmini Iyer. After lifting my self-imposed ban on buying cookbooks I eventually ordered The Quick Roasting Tin. My only regret was that I didn’t order it sooner! It is a fab book and I can’t wait for next one […]

Turkish Eggs with Whipped Feta

Nigella says in her intro to her Turkish Eggs recipe that the idea of eggs on yogurt did not appeal to her. While I adore chilli with eggs, I have to say I agree with her and had to be persuaded to try it for myself. However, when I saw Tieghan’s version on Half Baked […]

Sausage and Bean Casserole

I was recently watching an episode of one of Gordon Ramsay’s cooking shows and he made a delicious looking sausage casserole with gratin potatoes. His was made with ingredients similar to my Bangers and Mash. I realised I hadn’t made mine in ages. Of course, I did decide to make it on one of the […]

Easy Chicken Satay Curry

  I make a curry at least once a week and try to mix it up as much as I can. I already have a recipe up for Beef Satay Skewers and I do love it. The beef becomes tender in the marinade and chars beautifully on the skewer. However, sometimes you just want to keep it […]

Pea Courgette and Fennel Salad

I know it’s still March, I know this is more of a Summer dish so those who cook only with seasonal produce should look away now. I have been cooking with courgettes a lot lately. Given the strange times we are currently living in I find it easy to turn to familiar comfort food. However […]

Nduja Mascarpone and Lemon Pasta

I’m always on the lookout for new pasta recipes. Recently someone on Instagram posted a photo from Padella of a pasta dish with nduja (apologies, I can’t remember who posted it). Well, I became obsessed and started researching recipes. I love nduja and the idea of pairing it with rich mascarpone with sharp lemon cutting […]

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 […]
