The Saucepot’s Lunchbox: Chicken, Sweet Potato & Houmous Wrap

I haven’t done lunchbox post in absolutely forever. Many because I’ve been naughty and lazy and started going out to buy lunches while I was at work. This is not so good for the purse strings and depending on where I’m working sometimes the most exciting option is a pretty limp Tesco’s sandwich, whilst some…

Broccoli & Stilton Soup

Let’s face it we all live very busy lives and many of us work long hours and there’s not always time to do loads of cooking in the evenings when you’ve also got washing to sort out, cleaning to do etc. Sometimes you just can’t beat the convenience of a ready meal. However, your ready…

Beetroot, Carrot & Blue Cheese Tart

This recipe has been several attempts in the making as it took me a few goes to get it just right. I originally was going for a deep filled filo tart… but the pastry didn’t really cook properly and therefore wasn’t stable enough to hold the deep filling. I also gave it a go with…

Ham, Avocado & Blue Cheese Wrap Lunchbox

This is a really good tasty ‘store cupboard’ lunch. It just goes to show if you’re going to start making wraps you don’t really need to go and buy loads of fancy things you wouldn’t normally buy to have as fillings, you’ve got plenty of tasty stuff in your fridge already. Okay, so I may…

Ham & Blue Cheese Omelette

It’s always really tempting to have a really nice big fried brekkie at the weekend. Having that extra time to prepare and eat something more substantial instead of shovelling a bowl of blueberry wheats hurriedly down your throat as you’re walking out of the door is a real luxury so why shouldn’t you treat yourself…

Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

Mushrooms absolutely have to be up there near the top of my list of favourite foods. I love a mushroom risotto and mushrooms with pasta especially, but a nice big stuffed portobello mushroom makes a really nice side dish for a great variety of meals. Blue cheese goes perfectly with mushrooms and I’ve used a…

Mushroom, Pepper and Blue Cheese Tart with Walnut Pastry

This week for Sunday Bakes I decided to go down a slightly different route and do something savoury. I was getting a bit bored of all the cakes and biscuits, plus I still have some of last week’s lemon drizzle left so I thought it would be a good idea to go for a savoury…

Byron Hamburgers, Spitalfields

The gourmet burger trend is something that really took off in London in 2012, not being a great burger fanatic I didn’t really get massively involved. My adventures into the burger world went as far as going to GBK (there’s a restaurant directly opposite my office) for a naughty lunch occasionally when they had a…
