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 […]

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 […]

Leek and pea risotto

Leek & Pea Risotto

4th September 2018

A risotto isn’t something I often make, largely due to the fact that I’ve always thought it takes forever to make, painstakingly stirring for hours on end. However, I was surprised and thrilled to find this quick and simple leek and pea risotto recipe on HelloFresh. From start to finish, this risotto was made in 30 […]

Mushroom, Olive & Sundried Tomato Lasagne

31st July 2018

Although I’ve previously posted a vegetarian lasagne recipe, I couldn’t resist sharing this one, as it’s very different to the first, but equally as delicious. I first found inspiration for this recipe because we had two tubs of mushrooms that desperately needed using up, so I first searched for a mushrooms lasagne recipe, and then […]

Recently I had the pleasure of joining Marks & Spencer for a cookery class, rustling up a delicious beef burger and steak salad at Atelier des Chefs in Marylebone. Not only did we get to help prepare cook and prepare wonderful dishes with M&S ingredients, we were also able to hear from M&S head chefs […]
