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 […]

Review: Franco Manca

Review: Franco Manca

First things first, if you live in London and haven’t been to Franco Manco, what on earth are you playing at?! When I first moved to London 5 years ago there was just one to be found, but now restaurants have now sprung up all […]

Honey & Mustard Chicken 

Honey & Mustard Chicken 

My mum, who is an amazing cook, has always made honey & mustard sausages which I’m obsessed with (she’ll be reading this, hey mum!) and that’s where I got the inspo for this dish. It’s up to you how much glaze you make, just try […]

Foolproof Poached Eggs

Foolproof Poached Eggs

I realised as I was writing that title that this is a pretty big shout but it’s impossible to exaggerate how much this method has revolutionised my breakfast abilities! Previously poached eggs were a traumatic experience that I avoided at all costs. Every time I […]

Quick & Easy Paella

Quick & Easy Paella

Paella is such a dream, especially when eaten on the beach with a really cold glass of wine/beer/anything alcoholic. One of the best meals I ever had was during my first holiday with my boyfriend. We went to Mallorca and ordered paella at a restaurant […]

Pesto Spiral Salad 

Pesto Spiral Salad 

I made this just after I found an old housemate had left a spiraliser in the cupboard and decided I immediately had to spiralise whatever I could get my hands on (which ended up literally being my hands, these things are vicious) Anyway, spiralising an […]

Easy Caramelised Onion and Feta Bagels

Easy Caramelised Onion and Feta Bagels

Caramelised onion chutney is one of those things, like balsamic glaze and sweet chilli sauce, that makes ANYTHING taste better. I just cannot get enough of the stuff. I wanted to learn this delicious secret for myself but when I looked up a few recipes […]

Review: Sushi Cafe

Review: Sushi Cafe

When someone says “all you can eat” I’m transported back to 6th form when we’d go into town and raid the all you could eat Chinese buffet at lunch. At £5.99 it was admittedly a complete bargain, but perhaps in hindsight not the healthiest daily […]
