Grilled Peach & Duck Breast Salad

I have to confess I’ve always been sceptical of putting fruit into savoury dishes, in very few cases does it actually work, apricots in a Moroccan tagine for example, but if you want to start chucking strawberries in a salad I really can’t get on board with that. I will, however, admit that I can…

The Boyfriend’s Homemade Fakeaways: Donner Kebab

When I first met my boyfriend he’d barely ever cooked a thing, having served 5 years in the army, he’d been fed three times a day and never had to. However being a big food lover and knowing how big a foodie I was, he won me over when we were first dating by cooking…

The Ulimate Club Sandwich Debate

Now this is not something I originally intended to blog about, it was just a lunch I made that ended up sparking a bit of a debate at my dining table.

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…
