Save With Jamie’s Mothership Roast Salmon

If you’ve ever taken the time to have a little browse through the Tried & Tested section of my blog, you may have noticed that I’m a fairly big fan of Jamie Oliver cookbooks. I own a fair few myself but brought Save With Jamie for The Boyfriend lat year and have finally had the…

Mini Minty Roasties

Everybody loves roast potatoes. We all have them with our Sunday lunches and people compete over who can eat the most with their Christmas dinner. They are a great staple of British food. However the perfect roast potato can take time and careful precision. Everyone has their own different way of doing the perfect roast…

Cottage Pie

As much as us foodies all love to experiment and try new things and cook things we’ve never made before, sometimes there is nothing better than making a simple home cooked classic really well. I am aware that a cottage pie may not exactly be the most summery of dinners, but when the rain and…

Potato Salad

I’ve been having rather a lot of barbecues lately and unless you’ve been living in a hole, you probably have too. Even in between the summer showers there have been plenty of opportunities to light up the coals. The classic British barbecue always comes with a classic selection of sides and there’s often a potato…

Breakfast Hash

This may cause some controversy, but I have to confess, I’m really not a fan of a fried English breakfast. I don’t like fried eggs or baked beans and the whole thing just seems really greasy and sloppy to me. I’m not a huge cereal fan and whilst I often have fruit and yoghurt because…

Spanish Tortilla Lunchbox

Leftovers make great packed lunches and often make slightly too much for dinner just to make sure I have some leftover for lunch. When I make a Spanish Tortilla I’m probably looking forward to tomorrow’s lunch even more than dinner! You could also make one of these at the beginning of the week and it’ll…

Traditional Fish Pie

Fish pie is one of my favourite dinners, I make it regularly and in so many different variations but when I decided to share it on the blog I thought I’d go down the traditional route as it’s simple, tasty and can’t be beaten. Everyone loves simple hearty home cooking done properly and this version…

Herby Spanish Tortilla

 I’ve always been a huge fan of Spanish cuisine. Tapas and paella are two of my great foodie loves, but one thing that’ll always have a place in my heart is a Spanish tortilla. I used to eat tons of the stuff on family holidays as a kid. For those of you thinking ‘oh but…

Thai Beef Massaman Curry

Whenever I go to a Thai restaurant, I always find it difficult to choose between my two favourites: Thai Green Curry and a Massaman Curry. I’ve made a green curry a few times now (yet to be blogged about) so I thought it was about time I gave this a go. A Massaman curry is…
