Spicy aubergine chips with couscous

We tried out a delicious new recipe yesterday which I found in the latest international edition of Flow Magazine (issue 9). It is taken from Rachel Khoo’s book, My Little French Kitchen, and there are a few more recipes from the book in the magazine too (all of which look yummy!). The great thing about…

Caramel cake

17 May 2015 /

Today is World Baking Day and so I had to share a cake recipe with you! I made this caramel cake for my Mum’s birthday last month, and the recipe originally comes from the Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook (it’s a recipe by Nelly Ritchie who is in the Newcastle CCC – yay!). It was the first…

Chicken fettuccine with mascarpone and Marsala sauce

05 May 2015 /

One night last week, we had a few ingredients that needed using up – so I googled ‘chicken and mascarpone recipe’ and found this one for chicken fettuccine with mascarpone and marsala sauce. We adapted it from the original recipe (click here to see that) so that it was just enough for two. We didn’t…

Smiley jammy dodgers

17 April 2015 /

Don’t you just love a jammy dodger? These ones are special: they are smiley jammy dodgers! I spotted the cutters for these biscuits in Lakeland a while back and just had to get them. They are brilliant! You get four shapes in the pack, with the front and back cutters for each one. I love…

Strawberry and banana smoothie

12 April 2015 /

So Easter has been and gone, and it’s back to work tomorrow. I’ve been doing my best to avoid the Sunday blues by keeping super busy all day – I’ve actually done quite well for once, which is really unusual for me! I’m trying not to focus on the negative things about going back, as…

It’s a tradition for us to have hot cross buns on Good Friday, and over the past couple of years I have tested out some hot cross buns with a difference. This year is no exception, and this recipe for cinnamon and apple hot cross buns with marzipan caught my eye. Well, the word ‘marzipan’…

Roast carrot and butternut squash soup

26 March 2015 /

We had a bit of leftover squash from our risotto the other week (I went a bit crazy on the amount that we actually needed!) so Tom said he’d make some soup with it and use up a big batch of carrots that we had too. He’s really good at just making stuff up, whereas…

Banana bread

16 March 2015 /

Some of you will already know that we only eat bananas in cake or bread form! Tom isn’t a fan of fruit, and I can’t get on with the texture of bananas at all. But in a cake, we both agree that they are delicious. This was the first banana bread recipe I ever made, and…

Roasted butternut squash risotto

09 March 2015 /

This recipe is adapted from another recipe that I have already posted, but we wanted to make a veggie version of it.  This roasted butternut squash risotto is so delicious (if I say so myself) – it’s really comfort food. Great for a mid-week meal or for entertaining as it’s so easy to make –…
