Wholewheat Fusilli Rapid Ragù – Our Favourite Speedy Supper

Wholewheat Fusilli Rapid Ragù – Our Favourite Speedy Supper

How’s your week going? I have spent most of it dressed in multiple layers of knitwear whilst clutching hot water bottles, slouching around the house like some frost bitten sloth. I don’t tolerate the cold particularly well (my most-used winter phrase is “I’ve got poor […]

Pea, Mint & Asparagus Quiche (Vegan)

Pea, Mint & Asparagus Quiche (Vegan)

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the last throes of summer – the unusually warm September afternoons have seen my little girl and I still skipping around in summer frocks and enjoying pink sunsets from our little south London balcony. This week however has started off pretty […]

Tofu Thai Green Curry

Tofu Thai Green Curry

With summer fast approaching, I suspect this will be the last of the posts utilising the slow cooker before it is tucked away until autumn. But what a scrumptious dish for a season finale! This Thai curry is super easy and packed with veggies and […]

10-Minute Peanut & Sweet Chilli Noodles

10-Minute Peanut & Sweet Chilli Noodles

This quantity makes a good solo adult lunch, or two portions for my five year old daughter. This is her favourite lunch, and has been for a long time. I don’t mind at all – it’s super easy to make and packed with protein from […]

Southwestern Black Bean “Cowboy” Chilli (Slow Cooker)

Southwestern Black Bean “Cowboy” Chilli (Slow Cooker)

As promised, here is another slow-cooker recipe, and definitely my current favourite – it tastes brilliant, and is incredibly easy to make! Slow cookers are FANTASTIC. Did I already mention that? Well it’s worth repeating. I am in love with my slow cooker, and this […]

Chickpea Curry (Chana Masala)

Chickpea Curry (Chana Masala)

I love this recipe – it was the first curry I ever made! I have no doubt it’s not quite ‘authentic’, but who cares when it’s got so much going for it. It’s super healthy, naturally vegan and I’ve been making it for about a […]

Caribbean Biryani

Caribbean Biryani

I know this tongue-in-cheek dish sounds like a bit of a weird culture clash, but hear me out. I’ve been a fan of chucking rice, peppers and mixed beans together for as long as I can remember. Soon after I started working in London, I […]

Easy Focaccia

Easy Focaccia

I put this recipe together this afternoon, when I realised we had no garlic bread to go with our pasta supper – and was also wondering what to do with the left over sun dried tomatoes lurking in the fridge! It turned out so amazingly […]

Family Four-Cheese Macaroni (with hidden veg)

Family Four-Cheese Macaroni (with hidden veg)

There are few things lovelier than a plate of creamy macaroni cheese for dinner. I made up this version when my daughter was just starting to join in with eating meals at the table, and it quickly became a favourite. Despite her willingness to eat […]

Flaky Tofu Thai Pie

Flaky Tofu Thai Pie

Now that autumn is upon us and the evenings are becoming a little bit more chilly, I thought it was time to post another comforting pie recipe! I’m mad about coconut and if I can find a way of incorporating into my cooking and baking, […]

Sweetcorn Cakes / Tamales (Cheesecake Factory-style)

Sweetcorn Cakes / Tamales (Cheesecake Factory-style)

This is the ultimate recipe for those of you who, like me, tasted heaven when scoffing the sweet corn cakes at the Cheesecake Factory, a popular American chain of restaurants with a dessert menu (unsurprisingly) focusing on cheesecakes. And delicious ones at that. But they […]

Butter Butter Pie

Butter Butter Pie

This is like a hug in pie form. It’s a chunky vegetable double-crust pie, the focus being on butternut squash –  and butter beans, hence the name – with a creamy cheese and onion savoury sauce. It’s mild and soft enough to be liked by […]
