Super Simple Pork Stew

Super Simple Pork Stew

I love a stew. They are so easy and last for days. While I like trying new flavours and different ingredients in my stews and casseroles, sometimes, you just want something really basic that you can throw in a pan and leave for a few […]

Pan Fried Salmon with Garlic and Lemon Butter

Pan Fried Salmon with Garlic and Lemon Butter

I love fish it. Everything from fish and chips from the chippy to sushi and fresh seafood from a beachside stall. Except for perhaps oysters. Which are absolutely vile. But, I’m awful at cooking it myself. If we go out and there’s a tasty fish […]

Healthy Spinach and Mushroom Linguine in a Mild Chilli Sauce

Healthy Spinach and Mushroom Linguine in a Mild Chilli Sauce

I’ve eaten so much spinach this week. Honestly, I’ll be surprised if I don’t develop a greenish hue. I like spinach, but it comes in such huge bags (because of the rather unbelievable shrink perhaps?). So, I often buy it for something specific, then find […]

Roasted Red Pepper and Halloumi Flatbreads with Sweet Chilli and Ginger Sauce

Roasted Red Pepper and Halloumi Flatbreads with Sweet Chilli and Ginger Sauce

I love Halloumi. Sometimes, I just fry a whole block and eat it on its own. It’s beautiful. I put it on burgers, in one pot bakes, and on these gorgeous homemade flatbreads. Husband is the biggest meat eater ever, but will indulge my halloumi […]

Easy Sticky Chicken

Easy Sticky Chicken

We recently had sweet and sticky pork, which was a huge hit! So, we obviously thought we’d have to try some Sticky Chicken! My favourite thing about making your own sauces like this Sticky Chicken is that once you’ve got the bits in the make sauces, […]

Pork and Chorizo Casserole

Pork and Chorizo Casserole

I’m in such a casserole phase at the moment. The day I made this we had horrible snow forecast forever. My phone weather forecast was basically 100% snow for 24 hours. We’d just been to see Santa, which Bobsy absolutely hated, and we were huddled […]

Easy Beef Goulash Recipe

Easy Beef Goulash Recipe

I love stews and casseroles. I’m not entirely sure what the difference is. But I love them. Warming, easy, packed with flavour and nutrients and the meat is always so beautifully tender. Meals like this Beef Goulash are absolutely perfect on a cold winters night […]

One Pot Chicken Tikka Masala

One Pot Chicken Tikka Masala

This started off as a Madhur Jaffrey recipe. Which I’m sure would have been wonderful, but I made a few changes. The first because I didn’t have any chilli powder, somehow! But I did have some gorgeously fresh green chillies I wanted to use. Madhur […]

Sweet and Sticky Pork

Sweet and Sticky Pork

I really fancied something different the other day. I love making my own sauces; we’ve got such a little store of different kinds of vinegar and spices now and just like when I make curries, I love putting them together to try and create something […]

Brie and Mushroom Soup

Brie and Mushroom Soup

We’re having a snow day today. Husband is at work; The Boy is at his Dad’s, and The Bobsy hates snow. She’s very “slippery!! Cold!! Don’t like it” and refuses to set foot on it. I’m fine with this! I don’t mind playing out in […]
