Charred Pineapple Wraps

Black Bean & Charred Pineapple Wraps

20th July 2020

We made this delicious dish at the weekend for lunch, but it would equally make a great dinner option. Instead of using a more common red kidney bean and meat combo, we’ve used black beans and added a touch of sweetness with grilled pineapple. The mix of ingredients and strong flavours, work perfectly together. If […]

Thai Coconut Soup

Thai Coconut Courgetti Soup

10th July 2020

I normally find thinking of a dish for dinner quite stressful, especially when we have very little food in the house. However, sometimes I really enjoy it, particularly if we have a couple of ingredients left over in the fridge that need eating. In this case it was a couple of courgettes. We hadn’t used […]

Mediterranean Salmon

Baked Mediterranean Salmon

5th January 2020

Although I often think of salmon as a summer dish, this beautiful baked salmon fillet is great all year round. It’s the perfect dish to serve when entertaining guests, as it makes a pretty spectacular centre piece! Baked in the oven with a delicious medley of Mediterranean ingredients, it’s packed full of colour and flavour. […]

Sweet Potato & Spinach Dahl

29th December 2019

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll know there’s nothing I like more than whipping up a curry for dinner. Whilst we’ve made many variations over the years (you can find them all here), we haven’t made too many dahls before. And yet we always love to order a dahl when eating out. […]

Pea & Spinach Risotto

10th November 2019

I made this recipe a little while ago, and it was such a hit on Instagram with my followers, and it tasted so good in person, that I’ve since made it again. I originally found a similar recipe whilst browsing Pinterest. Which tends to be where I get most of my recipe inspiration from these […]

Puttanesca Recipe

Puttanesca

18th August 2019

Spaghetti alla Puttanesca (otherwise known as the dish of Italian prostitutes), is an Italian pasta dish, invented in Naples in the 1960s. It’s thought that prostitutes would make this simple dish because it was quick and cheap! It includes many cupboard ingredients, that most Italians would have at home, and can be rustled up in […]

Butternut Squash & Lentil Dahl

Butternut Squash & Lentil Dahl

12th August 2019

We originally made this recipe after receiving one similar in a Gousto box. We had signed up to their subscription service to try new recipes, as we’d found we were often making the same dishes each week. We were lacking culinary inspiration! We have our beloved go-to curry recipe, that we make large batches of […]

Homemade Pesto

Homemade Pesto

8th July 2019

I was very kindly gifted this Kitchenaid food processor by the lovely team at AO.com and the first recipe I decided to make with it, was a homemade pesto. I’ve always knew that a basic pesto recipe was very simple to make, but I’ve never actually tried my hand at it. The Kitchenaid food processor […]
