Gluten Free Earl Grey Fruit Loaf

Recently my household has become gluten-free. The Boyfriend, who actually needs to go gluten-free, is finding this all rather depressing as the entire bread aisle and biscuit and cake aisle in Sainsbury’s are now off limits to him. I however am seeing it all as an opportunity to get experimenting. I’m definitely more of a…

Cheddar, Bacon & Broccoli Savoury Cupcakes

When you think of baking, usually images of Victoria Sponges, fondant fancies and colourful Battenbergs spring to mind. However, my favourite challenges on The Great British Bake Off are always when they get to make something savoury. I just find it a bit more exciting. I think it takes a little more imagination to come…

Lamb Shanks with Bean Stew

Do you have the in-laws coming over for dinner? Friends coming for a dinner party to see your new place? Whatever the dinner party occasion, this is the perfect dish for it. Lamb shanks always look impressive and the beauty of this dish is that you only have to do around 20 minutes prep work…

Sweet Chilli Chicken with Butternut Squash, Spinach & Quinoa

In recent years health food crazes have gone completely mad. Super foods, clean eating and similar trends are what all the cool kids want to talk about and everyone’s got their own take on it. I’m not knocking it at all, our health is extremely important and it’s great that so many people want to…

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…

Vegetable Soup

This recipe I’m sharing with you is actually one I make on a pretty regular basis. This is mainly because it’s so ridiculously easy and doesn’t involve a ton of fancy ingredients and only takes around 15 minutes to make. In addition to this, it’s also really tasty, especially considering that all the ingredients are…

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…

Temper, London

It says on the homepage of Temper’s website: Barbecue, Tacos, Wine, Mezcal, Good Times, and that pretty much sums it up. Temper occupies a corner plot in one of the big new developments on Soho’s Broadwick Street, you’d be forgiven for not really realising it was there as most of the restaurant (and the magic)…

Halloumi, Bean & Chickpea Salad with a Chilli Lime Dressing

Do you ever get stuck in a rut when it comes to lunches? It’s a really important part of the day, we’ve all been working hard all morning and lunch is vital to refuel and get you through the afternoon until dinner time, however it’s often over looked as an interruption. We end up skipping…

Foccacia

One of my favourite things to make at home, but that I rarely get the chance to, is bread. There is something so satisfactory about making your own bread I really wish I did it more. This weekend I sat down and flicked through a few Paul Hollywood books for inspiration and, after considering making…

Roasted Vegetable Lasagne

At long last, a new recipe post from me! I’ve chosen this delectable vegetable lasagne as my ‘comeback recipe’ for several reasons: firstly, and most importantly, because it was seriously good! I wanted to make a vegetarian lasagne and had been browsing through a few recipes but in the end decided to just have a…
