The Ivy Brasserie, Soho

Living and working in London, it’s so easy to take for granted all of the amazing things this city has to offer. I walk past sights on my daily commute that people travel thousands of miles to come and see and equally there are numerous ‘must-do’ places to visit that I, as a lifelong Londoner…

Prawn & Mango Courgetti Salad with Sweet Chilli Dressing

In recent months I’ve really been trying to pay a lot more attention to what I put into my body and how it responds. Last year, after quite a long period of trying to figure out why I was getting stomach pains, I had my gall bladder removed. It’s a pretty minor operation and very…

Gluten Free Earl Grey Fruit Loaf

Recently my household has become gluten-free. The Boyfriend, who actually needs to go gluten-free, is finding this all rather depressing as the entire bread aisle and biscuit and cake aisle in Sainsbury’s are now off limits to him. I however am seeing it all as an opportunity to get experimenting. I’m definitely more of a…

Cheddar, Bacon & Broccoli Savoury Cupcakes

When you think of baking, usually images of Victoria Sponges, fondant fancies and colourful Battenbergs spring to mind. However, my favourite challenges on The Great British Bake Off are always when they get to make something savoury. I just find it a bit more exciting. I think it takes a little more imagination to come…

Lamb Shanks with Bean Stew

Do you have the in-laws coming over for dinner? Friends coming for a dinner party to see your new place? Whatever the dinner party occasion, this is the perfect dish for it. Lamb shanks always look impressive and the beauty of this dish is that you only have to do around 20 minutes prep work…

Sweet Chilli Chicken with Butternut Squash, Spinach & Quinoa

In recent years health food crazes have gone completely mad. Super foods, clean eating and similar trends are what all the cool kids want to talk about and everyone’s got their own take on it. I’m not knocking it at all, our health is extremely important and it’s great that so many people want to…

Baked Fish with Tomatoes & Beans

Some of my favourite dinners are those that I’ve invented off the cuff due to what I’ve got left in the cupboards and what needs using up as when my options are limited I end up getting more creative! I had intended on making a fish dish with fresh tomatoes all baked in the oven…

Vegetable Soup

This recipe I’m sharing with you is actually one I make on a pretty regular basis. This is mainly because it’s so ridiculously easy and doesn’t involve a ton of fancy ingredients and only takes around 15 minutes to make. In addition to this, it’s also really tasty, especially considering that all the ingredients are…

My Leftover Challenge

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll be aware that last week I set myself a bit of a challenge. Normally I’m the one that travels for work, but this time The Boyfriend was away, so finding myself rattling around at home on my own I decided to set myself a foodie challenge. When he…
