Vegan Courgetti Pad Thai

As regular readers of this blog will know, I am an avid lover of vegetables, and always have been. I was the strange child that asked for a second helping of brussel sprouts at Sunday dinner. There’s a huge movement towards veganism and plant based eating in today’s society and whilst I can’t see myself…

Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper Tart

As recipes go, I almost feel like this is a bit of a cop out because there’s absolutely zero skill involved but the result is absolutely scrumptious so I’m sharing it with you anyway. Puff pastry tarts make such a great midweek meal as you can buy the ready-rolled sheet, plonk a few things on…

Baked Chicken Legs with Tomato & Borlotti Bean Stew

Sometimes a great dinner is more than the sum of it’s parts, a great dish can be put together from simple cheap ingredients and turned into something special. All of the ingredients in this dish are pretty basic and inexpensive and you can always swap out the veg for whatever you have floating around in…

Mediterranean Platter with Halloumi & Lamb Koftas

In my family, all things Mediterranean are the ultimate when it comes to food. When I lived at home lamb koftas were a regular in my Mum’s kitchen and they’re a recipe I’ve taken with me to mine. Whilst they are one of my favourites, I realised a few weeks ago that I actually hadn’t…

My Leftover Challenge

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll be aware that last week I set myself a bit of a challenge. Normally I’m the one that travels for work, but this time The Boyfriend was away, so finding myself rattling around at home on my own I decided to set myself a foodie challenge. When he…

Spanish Chorizo & Potato Hash

Sometimes dinners need to come together super quick and require minimum fuss and minimum washing up. One pot dishes are ideal for during the week when time, and probably also your patience, is at a premium. This super quick spanish style potato hash is thrown together in a matter of minutes and packs plenty of…

Grilled Mackerel with Butterbean Mash & Vegetables

I’ve recently purchased a grill for my worktop (similar to this Tefal one) and it is absolutely my new favourite toy. Having recently moved into a flat, and therefore not being able to have a barbecue, it has definitely been fulfilling my open grill needs.. despite the lack of flame or coals. It’s just so easy to…

Mediterranean Pepper & Feta Salad

I’m a firm believer that salads are massively underrated in this country. We tend to stick to lettuce, cucumber and tomato, don’t bother to dress it and that’s it. Boring. No wonder people dismiss it as rabbit food. I’ve spent quite a bit of time over in California over the past year and my whole…

Courgette, Pepper & Halloumi Puff Tart

I’m actually really excited to be posting this recipe as the very first meal to be cooked in my lovely new flat! I moved into my new place with it’s beautiful shiny kitchen on Saturday and I’ll be cooking up lots and lots of tasty treats in it, all to be featured on this little…

Pan Fried Sea Bass with Mediterranean Roasted Vegetables

Lately, unintentionally, I have found myself more and more often skipping the meat and choosing vegetarian or fish dishes instead. I haven’t really made a conscious decision about this, but I think it’s just because sometimes the amount of meat we consume as a society just feels a bit heavy. I’m nowhere near close to…
