Pesto Chicken Crumble

I am always looking for new ways to cook basic ingredients, incorporating my favourite flavours whilst keeping the whole thing healthy and both family and budget friendly. When I was thinking about what I could do with a chicken and pesto dish that would be a little more original, I thought why not make a…

Chocolate & Orange Torta Della Nonna

I love an excuse to bake something a little bit special so when I invited some friends over for dinner last weekend I had a good rummage through the recipe books and hundreds of magazine cuttings Iā€™ve saved to look for some inspiration.

Spinach Stuffed Romano Peppers

Spinach & Feta Tarts

Sunday bakes is back!! I apologise for the lack of yummy weekend treats of late. I don’t quite know how but the last few months have been a whirlwind and I’ve been so busy which hasn’t left much time for baking, but don’t panic I am back in the kitchen and back in the game…
