Garlic Mushroom, Thyme & Goats Cheese Toast

I could almost always have a cheese and Marmite sandwich for lunch, especially when I’m on my own.  No brain power required.  Fills a hole.  No further thought until supper time.  But when I jolt myself out of my rut and start pulling ingredients out of the fridge in a ‘ready steady cook’ style challengeContinue reading “Garlic Mushroom, Thyme & Goats Cheese Toast”

Pink Potato, Fennel & Leek Soup

The temperature has dropped again and it seems like everyone is poorly… Mine included.  So we’re bundled up with sniffs and snivels and only hot soup and toast will do.  That along with chamomile tea and ginger biscuits!  No problem though, snuggling on the sofa and reading back to back Roald Dahl is a treat…Continue reading “Pink Potato, Fennel & Leek Soup”

Spelt & Honey Split-Tin Loaf

It’s been ages since I’ve made a loaf using commercial yeast, but yesterday was an exceptional day… My boy was home sick, and so was I.  Nursing my sourdough, and getting up to bake it early this morning, was more than I could face.  Plus, being the last week of January we are utterly utterlyContinue reading “Spelt & Honey Split-Tin Loaf”

Papaya & Coconut Porridge

It’s a tropical winter warmer… Sweet & fruity, but wonderfully warming on a cold winter’s morning… Porridge sets me up until lunch, providing there’s enough protein in it.  I definitely couldn’t get by on oats and milk, but the addition of coconut milk, and or nuts and seeds keeps me going.  I absolutely love thatContinue reading “Papaya & Coconut Porridge”
