Review: Rick Stein’s Cafe, Padstow

Cornwall is one of my favourite places in the world, in particular the North coast around Padstow. I love the beaches, surfing, long walks and (most importantly) the non-stop availability of scones/pasties and the cider. Anyone who visits Padstow will quickly notice a theme amongst […]

Sweet Potato & Lentil Soup

Sweet Potato & Lentil Soup

I made this soup last weekend when we hit September 1st and in my mind it was basically Christmas. I am obsessed with this time of year and everything about it. All the leaves, the cold weather, LAYERS, Halloween, Bonfire Night, being able to eat […]

The 7 Most Bingeable Shows on Netflix…

The 7 Most Bingeable Shows on Netflix…

I could sit here and pretend I don’t watch any TV and instead spend my days going for runs and testing various brands of quinoa but that would (thankfully) be a lie. I watch a lot, usually when I need distracting from something a bit […]

Sweet Potato & Egg Hash

Sweet Potato & Egg Hash

I think hash is the right name for this – from my extensive Pinterest research it looks that way anyway. Either way this recipe has become my new favourite weekend brunch recipe. It falls into my favourite category of food, comfort carbs, and is really […]

Mushroom Risotto

Mushroom Risotto

Risotto is up there with some of my top comfort foods, especially the mushroom variety. It’s a bit of a faff I know but really worth it if you’ve got a bit of time spare in the evening. Over the last couple of years I’ve […]

Top 5 Recipe Books

Top 5 Recipe Books

Over the years I’ve built a pretty impressive collection of recipe books and it’s only over the last year or so (as I’ve gotten more and more into cooking) that I’ve actually started using them rather than just propping them up on various shelves to […]

Chicken and Bacon Tartiflette

Chicken and Bacon Tartiflette

I think you can call this a tartiflette, that was what I had in mind when surveying the contents of our fridge anyway… We had my entire family (6 people plus a baby..!) to stay this weekend and ended up with the sorts of random […]

Mini Veggie Lasagna

Mini Veggie Lasagna

Honestly, I’m still in mild shock that this actually worked and the end result looked like this given what I started out with. Any Italians reading this will, I’m sure, be APPALLED that I am calling this Lasagna so apologies in advance but you’ll have […]
