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…

Tried & Tested: Jamie Oliver’s Popeye Bread

This is a slightly different take on my tried and tested series today. I hadn’t actually planned to try out this recipe, but I had a day off and I was watching old episodes of Jamie’s Superfood on All4 while drinking my morning coffee, saw this and realised I actually had most of the ingredients…

The Ivy Brasserie, Soho

Living and working in London, it’s so easy to take for granted all of the amazing things this city has to offer. I walk past sights on my daily commute that people travel thousands of miles to come and see and equally there are numerous ‘must-do’ places to visit that I, as a lifelong Londoner…

Baked Fish with Tomatoes & Beans

Some of my favourite dinners are those that I’ve invented off the cuff due to what I’ve got left in the cupboards and what needs using up as when my options are limited I end up getting more creative! I had intended on making a fish dish with fresh tomatoes all baked in the oven…

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…

Simply Cook Recipe Round-Up

Last month I wrote about how I’d been giving Simply Cook’s recipe kit boxes a go and how pleased I was with the first recipe which was one of my favourites: Jerk Chicken. I promised I’d let you know how I got on with the rest of the box. I’ve only made three out of the…

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. I made club sandwiches, having been inspired by Charlotte’s Ultimate Club Sandwich, just because it made me hungry and I fancied one. My club sandwiches…

Tortilla Pizzas

Do you ever get a bit bored of sandwiches and soup for lunch options? I do. On a rainy Sunday recently I had an array of wraps and rolls that could do with using up, a variety of salad and sandwich fillings and just really didn’t fancy another same old sarnie. It was a bit…

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…

Spaghetti & Meatballs

This recipe is such a classic family friendly dinner. Kids love spaghetti, kids love meatballs, if they’re fussy about veggies you can blend up the sauce to hide them, and the flavours are so delicious we all still love this dish as adults. This is a great recipe to use for midweek dinners as well…
