Homemade Onion Bhaji Recipe

Homemade Onion Bhaji Recipe

I love an onion bhaji. Whenever we get a takeaway, eat at an Indian restaurant or get a curry from a supermarket, I have to have an onion bhaji. It’s my favourite bit of the meal. There is a butcher in town that sells 3 for […]

Red Onion Jam

Red Onion Jam

I’ve previously shared our blue cheese and red onion jam burgers and our focaccia topped with red onion jam and cheddar but seen as we use this recipe for lots of things I thought it was a good idea to have it written up separately. […]

Wonky Vegetable Soup

Wonky Vegetable Soup

About Wonky Veg Some of the larger Asda stores now sell large boxes of wonky vegetables. Basically, these are vegetables that don’t look perfect and would have normally been thrown away. There’s nothing wrong with them, they still taste exactly the same, there’s no actual […]

Homemade Tomato Pizza Sauce

Homemade Tomato Pizza Sauce

I’ve used this recipe for pizza sauce before, in my homemade pizza recipe. But, I was just about write up my stuffed crust recipe, and thought it would be easier, in terms of future pizza recipes, if I had this separate somewhere. It also makes […]

Broccoli and Stilton Soup

Broccoli and Stilton Soup

Broccoli and stilton soup is my absolute favourite. I love cheese, I love soup, and I love blue cheese sauces generally. So, this is fantastic. It’s not something I normally get to have because Hunky Husband doesn’t like it. But, we thought if he made […]

Leek and Potato Soup

Leek and Potato Soup

I’ve mentioned my love of soup before. It’s great. Especially when it’s cold. I also love potato. So potato soup is a definite win. We went to Elsecar Heritage centre today. It was absolutely freezing. This probably isn’t true. I’m usually cold, so I was […]

Gorgeous Sweet Potato Soup

Gorgeous Sweet Potato Soup

I’ve never made soup. I’m not sure why, because I love eating it. It’s always just seemed like a bit too much trouble. There’s a blender involved, it must be difficult. This has been silly of me, as, on a cold winters day, there’s not […]

Homemade Salsa

Homemade Salsa

I love salsa. Both on a burger, or as a dip. It’s amazing how much flavour it holds, and how much you can do by making a few small changes. This one I made to top a halloumi and red pepper burger, so it’s nice […]

Tzatziki Recipe

Tzatziki Recipe

I hate cucumber. It’s one of the few things I don’t like. Right up there with celery, which is just absolutely vile. However, I don’t mind it as an ingredient, and I love Greek food, so Tzatziki is one of the few acceptable cucumber based […]
