Tried & Tested: Jamie Oliver’s Popeye Bread

This is a slightly different take on my tried and tested series today. I hadn’t actually planned to try out this recipe, but I had a day off and I was watching old episodes of Jamie’s Superfood on All4 while drinking my morning coffee, saw this and realised I actually had most of the ingredients…

Masterchef Restaurant 2014

I’ve always been a huge Masterchef fan and when I found out they were putting on a pop-up restaurant in London I knew I just had to go. I then found out it was going to be for the entire month of September which happily coincided with my sister’s 30th birthday and so booked the…

Italian Deli Wrap Lunchbox

There’s nothing better than absolutely jam packing a sandwich or a wrap with lots of yummy things, I absolutely cannot stand those horrible limp sandwiches with one measly slice of ham. This one packs slightly more calories than my usual wraps coming in at 574, but well worth it and a great tasty reward (that’s…

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…

American Style Chopped Salad, Lunchbox

Now we’re well into January, my healthy eating kick is going strong and I’m trying to come up with varied and interesting packed lunches to keep me motivated. I’m getting a bit bored of lots of leafy stuff so I decided to change things up a bit and took a few tips from our friends…

Leftover Roast Gammon & Cheese Salad with Mustard Mayo Lunchbox

All the best packed lunches are made from leftovers, particularly on a Monday after a Sunday roast. This lunch has all the best things about a cheese and ham sandwich (something we all love) but without the stodgy bread, a great healthy alternative. This lunchbox also works whatever your Sunday lunch was, the gammon can…

Ham & Avocado Salad with Pesto Mayonnaise Lunchbox

The Saucepot’s Lunchbox is back! Apologies for the silence of late. My kitchen has been undergoing a complete overhaul and it’s been fairly impossible to cook and/or prepare any food, but we are now back in working order and back to business as usual! Quite frankly I’m relieved, I was getting fed up of takeaways…

Canapés with Carluccio

Earlier this week I was lucky enough to be invited to an evening of prosecco and canapés with Antonio Carluccio at the re-opening of his Putney restaurant. A huge fan of Italian food and regular viewer of Two Greedy Italians I was, of course, extremely excited. This all came about at quite short notice so…
