Easter Brownies

18th April 2019

Having shared a brownie recipe before, I wasn’t sure whether I should share another. But these Easter inspired brownies came out so well, that I couldn’t not. I made these this week for a charity bake sale at work. Using my classic basic recipe, that I use to make all of my brownies, I added […]

Salmon Tagliatelle

Creamy Salmon Tagliatelle

25th February 2019

Pasta dishes, and Italian cuisine in general, are one of my favourite foods. I’ve tried my hand at making my own pasta, and cooking up a variety of fresh and packet pasta throughout the seasons. Whether it’s a spicy tomato ragu or a light lemon and olive oil dressing, pasta can be so versatile and […]

Cauliflower shawarma

Cauliflower Shawarma Flat Breads

17th February 2019

I made this for lunch a couple of weekend’s ago, after finding the recipe whilst browsing Pinterest. It was so tasty that I had to share it. It’s a super easy dish to make, and is a great vegetarian alternative to a chicken shawarma. The addition of avocado, iceberg lettuce and cucumber, keeps it fresh. […]

Valentine's Cocktail Recipe

The Spicy Valentine Cocktail

Egg Mayo Sandwich

Homemade Egg Mayo Sandwich

2nd February 2019

I’ve never been a huge egg mayo fan. It would never have been my choice of sandwich. However, a colleague had a homemade egg sandwich for lunch last week, and it looked delicious. I’d never thought about making egg mayonnaise myself before. So the following weekend, I bought half a dozen free range eggs, Hellman’s […]

It might look like a long list of ingredients but this tasty sweet potato, chickpea and lentil curry is super easy to make! Whilst spices can be expensive, they’re a fantastic investment.

Banana bread

Chocolate Banana Bread

9th January 2019

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 […]

Fish pie

Fish Pie

30th September 2018

I made this delicious fish pie off the cuff last week, after browsing my Instagram feed and spotting a photo of a fish pie, that a colleague had made at work. Fish pie happens to be one of Stew’s favourite meals, and yet I’ve never made one before! I’ve always thought that a fish pie […]
