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We originally made this recipe after receiving one similar in a Gousto box.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 […]

I made this delicious Moroccan chickpea bowl a little while ago, at the weekend, when I first spotted the recipe on Pinterest. It was super quick and easy to make, and I’ve been promising to share the recipe ever since – better late than never! If you fancy something a little different for lunch, something […]

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 […]

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

7th February 2019

When Durham Gin got in touch, offering me a bottle of their classic gin, it’s safe to say, I didn’t need asking twice. If you’ve been a follower of mine for a while, you’ll knot that a G&T is my go-to tipple. However, Durham Gin asked if I wanted to create a cocktail recipe, and […]

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 […]
