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…

Lemon & Herb Spatchcock Chicken with Spring Greens

Sometimes the best dinners are the simplest. We can be quick to dismiss chicken as boring and plain but it’s one of those things that when cooked well can be truly absolutely delicious. A good roast chicken reminds us all of Sunday dinners cooked by our Mum/Nan and you forget how much you love it…

Super Quick Sausage & Tomato Casserole

Alongside stir fries, sausage casserole has to be one of the most frequently made mid week dinners in my house. It’s super quick and easy to do, mega tasty and is the sort of recipe you can literally throw anything you’ve got in the fridge into. Not only do we make it so often because…

Ozeri Elite Chef Ceramic Knives

One of the most important things about being a good home cook is making sure that you have the right tools for the job. You wouldn’t try to dice an onion with a butter knife and there’s equally as little point trying to hack through veg with blunt old knives, it won’t do the job…

Beetroot, Carrot & Blue Cheese Tart

This recipe has been several attempts in the making as it took me a few goes to get it just right. I originally was going for a deep filled filo tart… but the pastry didn’t really cook properly and therefore wasn’t stable enough to hold the deep filling. I also gave it a go with…

Spicy Tomato Soup

I was inspired to invent this recipe after Tyron cooked me a three course meal a few weeks ago and did an absolutely delicious tomato soup for our starter. So naturally I pinched his recipe and made a few adaptations. One of my favourite things about soups is how healthy they can be, this one…

Oxford’s Covered Market

 A few weeks ago I had a lovely weekend away in Oxfordshire. There were lots of things I was looking forward to seeing and doing in the historic city of Oxford, but top of my list was The Covered Market. Housed in a building dating back to the 1700s and having been operating for more…

Super Veggie Breakfast Omelette

I’m sure it hasn’t escaped your notice that the entire UK is currently covered in a blanket of snow and everyone’s been out tobogganing and building snowmen. Joy! I however, have been stuck indoors with the flu… not so joyous. Unable to go outside and battle the elements I am at home on a rare sick day…

Vegetarian Curry

So this week I’ve had my friend Alex come to visit for a few days, which was really lovely and great to have a catch up as we don’t get together that often. However, this did pose one problem… she’s a veggie! Now for me, this isn’t really a problem, I really love vegetables and…
