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”

Spaghetti Puttanesca for One…

There’s something quite wonderful about being home alone, just myself to please and my own whims and fancies to indulge… It means strong salty flavours, preserved fish, anchovies, smoked mackerel, salmon and carbs.  There’s a whole lot of love wrapped up in a dish for one, and this spaghetti puttanesca sums it up for me…Continue reading “Spaghetti Puttanesca for One…”

Mighty Minestrone & Other Winter Warmers

In the thick of this cold snap, bundled up in chunky knitwear and just as I was gloating that I haven’t been ill since I can’t remember, it hit me.  The worst cold virus I’ve had since I can’t remember… hot & cold, aching all over, 3 days on the sofa and counting and mostContinue reading “Mighty Minestrone & Other Winter Warmers”

Chicken Pasanda With Cauliflower, Coconut & Almond ‘Rice’

This isn’t a fad.  Don’t mistake this one for a carb-avoiding gluten-free fashion supper… Although it happens to be those things!  For me it’s an alternative, I just didn’t fancy rice, and I do love cauliflower, and it does happen to be delicious!  Have you tried my vegetarian Mushroom Pasanda recipe by the way?  ThisContinue reading “Chicken Pasanda With Cauliflower, Coconut & Almond ‘Rice’”

Tomato & Basil Risotto meets Harissa Chicken Bone Broth…

The bone broth from the Harissa Roast Chicken is beautifully warming, without being hot!  It was sitting in my fridge in all its jellified wibbly wobbly gloriousness with a lovely warm red colour… I definitely prefer using broth for risotto than soup, although I’m sure this would have made a lovely tomato based soup… But,Continue reading “Tomato & Basil Risotto meets Harissa Chicken Bone Broth…”

Holy Guacamole…! The Recipe for immortality…

It’s a Classic… Macaroni Cheese Meets Dijon Mustard and #NotInOurBread

If you read the Flourless Chocolate Brownies post you’ll know it’s been a slow day here… It’s cold & misty outside, so we’ll snuggle down, bake and snuggle some more.  We are all feeling a little worse for wear, following an over indulgent (be it sweets or bloody mary’s) night last night.  So by lunchContinue reading “It’s a Classic… Macaroni Cheese Meets Dijon Mustard and #NotInOurBread”
