Mini Egg Blondies

Easter Blondies

18th March 2021

A couple of years ago I made some pretty impressive (if I do say so myself) Easter brownies. No brownie recipe I’ve made since has topped it, but this year I fancied making something different. Having never made blondies before, I decide to give them a whirl. Using my tried and tested brownie recipe as […]

Broccoli and Stilton Soup

Broccoli & Stilton Soup

28th December 2020

There’s nothing I like more than to use up left over broccoli and stilton from Christmas and make a delicious soup. This has got to be my favourite flavour of soup. It’s perfect for this time of year. Not only is it great to use up left overs, but it’s hearty and warming. Just what […]

Black Eyed Bean & Kale Stew

4th December 2020

This is another Anna Jones recipe that I’ve taken inspiration from. You may remember a friend of ours bought us her book ‘A Modern Way to Cook’.

Banana Bread Recipe

Chocolate Banana Bread

28th November 2020

Is there anything better than coming home to the smell of freshly baked banana bread filling the kitchen? I absolutely love to make a banana loaf, not least because they’re super quick and easy to make, but because they smell and taste so good. Whenever we have bananas browning in our fruit bowl, I instantly […]

Sweet Roasted Courgette with Crispy Chickpeas

27th November 2020

During lockdown 2.0 a good friend of ours sent us Anna Jones’ recipe book ‘A Modern Way to Cook’. A collection of healthy and easy to cook vegetarian dishes, the book has already become a favourite of ours. We’ve made a few recipes from it and loved every one of them. This one in particular […]

Salmon and Herb Parcels

Salmon & Couscous Parcels

23rd September 2020

We often bake salmon in the oven, normally wrapped in foil with lemon, butter and vegetabes. I love steamed salmon cooked in this way, but I’ve never thought to add couscous before. This clever recipe brings all of the dishes ingredients together into one parchment paper parcel. Simply baked in the oven, it’s quick, it’s […]

5 Bean Chilli

Five Bean Chilli Recipe

18th September 2020

An oldie but a goodie. Our five bean chilli recipe is one that we come back to time and time again. In fact, in winter months, it’s a regular on our meal rotation. We always make big batches so that we can divide it up and freeze it for a later date. There’s nothing better than […]

Thai Green Curry

Thai Green Curry

1st August 2020

We hadn’t made a Thai Green Curry for ages. I’m not sure where the inspiration came from when we were in the supermarket, but we both fancied something relatively healthy, with lots of colourful veggies. (Standard procedure for us!). We decided to make a Vegetable Thai Green Curry, and rather than opt for tofu, we […]
