The Saucepot’s Lunchbox: Tuna & Bean Mix

Continuing with the return of The Saucepot’s lunchbox, this week things have gotten a little more fishy. One of the biggest struggles I have is coming up with new ideas for lunches and not getting bored of it by the end of the week. When you’ve bought a load of tortilla wraps, salad and fillers…

Basil Salmon with New Potato, Corn & Tomato Salad

Do you ever get stuck in a bit of a dinner time inspiration rut? One of the things I’ve struggled with since moving out of my parents house is trying to think of a different, interesting and tasty thing to eat every single day. Sometimes I feel like I’m just cooking more or less the…

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…

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…

Savage Salads

Salads are boring right? Just plain old lettuce, cucumber and tomato, plain old boring rabbit food? Wrong! Stop the press! Salads can be awesome and exciting! You don’t believe me do you? Well get yourselves down to Savage Salads at Berwick Street Market and let me prove you wrong! I’ve been walking past Savage Salads,…

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…

Aubergine, Tomato & Mozzarella Tower

This is a dish I’ve often had different versions of in a variety of different (mostly Italian) restaurants but before now never attempted to make myself. I can’t think why not because it’s a really simple and tasty starter. This is obviously ideal for vegetarian guests and light enough that it’s not going to fill you…

Chicken & Cheese Wrap Lunchbox

Wraps area fantastic way of using up leftovers. I had a big family barbecue the weekend before I made this lunch and therefore had all sorts of odd bits leftover. The sausages went towards a Monday night dinner with salad, the burgers broken up to make meatballs with a tomato sauce and I shredded up…

Tomato & Asparagus Salad

Another really healthy side dish and this one can be thrown together in a matter of minutes with next to no cooking involved. If you’re fed up with leafy salads, this sort of thing is a great alternative to your classic green salad and the sweetness of the tomatoes and the balsamic makes it seem…

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…
