Cod and chorizo orzo

13 May 2014 / 1

When it comes to fish, I must admit that I’m not particularly adventurous. I basically don’t like eating anything if it can look at me, so that rules out quite a lot (I know that’s ridiculous, but…)! In addition to that, I don’t really like the fact that a lot of fish is just a…

Eastern-spiced shepherd’s pie with Bombay potato topping

03 May 2014 / 0

We made this dish using leftovers from the roast shoulder of lamb with herbs and honey, and both dishes are truly delicious. I must apologise for the photo of this one – I was so hungry when I took it so it’s a bit blurry, oops! But I promise you it is worth making!

Roast shoulder of lamb with herbs and honey served with roast red onions and basil

02 May 2014 / 1

It’s a Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK this weekend – hooray! No Sunday night feeling this weekend 🙂 If you’re planning to cook something a little special, then look no further – we made this amazing lamb dish at Easter and it is my new favourite. It serves 4 people but we served 2 people with…

Pasta with tomatoes, ricotta, parma ham and sage

23 April 2014 / 0

  This recipe takes hardly any time at all to make, so it’s a delicious meal for a weeknight. The combination of flavours is really good (although the first time we made it we were missing the sage because I couldn’t find any at the supermarket!). You could easily make a bigger batch for family…

Mini chocolate and orange hot cross buns

18 April 2014 / 2

  There is still time to make treats for Easter, and these hot cross buns are amazingly good! I know what you’re thinking: “Your buns haven’t got crosses on though…” – and you are (obviously) correct! This was because I don’t have a new piping bag yet, and the mix I made was a bit…

  If you’re looking for a sweet Easter treat, look no further! This delicious citrus and marzipan Bakewell tart is a twist on a classic Bakewell.

Gnocchi with roasted squash and goat’s cheese

10 April 2014 / 0

  I have always wanted to make gnocchi – it has been one of those things on my food bucket list for a long time now. It takes a little while but it well-worth the effort, and I’ll definitely do it again! But you can always just use the ready made gnocchi if you don’t…

Red lentil and chorizo soup

04 April 2014 / 0

Yesterday I posted the recipe for sun dried tomato and parmesan bread, and it was really popular! So I thought that I’d post the soup that we made to go with it in case you’re going to try it out this weekend 🙂 If you’re a veggie, you might want to try my super soup…

Sun dried tomato and parmesan bread

03 April 2014 / 3

I have wanted to make this delicious bread from scratch for some time now, because we usually buy the packet mix (which is super tasty). I always thought it would be more complicated to make than it actually is, and it only takes an extra 5-10 minutes to prepare in comparison to the packet mix.…

Spinach and ricotta enchiladas

28 March 2014 / 0

  This is another recipe from ‘Mexican Food Made Simple‘ by Thomasina Miers, which has quickly become one of my favourite recipe books. You’ll need to make some roast tomato sauce for these enchiladas, which takes a little while but will be worth the effort! We altered the quantities to make this for two, but…
