Peach, Pea & Halloumi Salad

What did the cheese say when it looked in the mirror?  “Hallou-mi!” This salad though, it’s no joke.  In fact it’s seriously lovely… It’s about as easy as dinner comes too, so when you’re ready for a super summer supper and a glass of cold white wine this is for you… Full of allotment bountyContinue reading “Peach, Pea & Halloumi Salad”

An Hawaiian Poke Bowl meets an English Autumn

Traditional Hawaiian Ahi Poke recipes call for raw tuna, which, try as I might I’m just not keen on.  But in this poke bowl recipe you could absolutely switch out the tofu for tuna, or salmon.  The recipe is filled with warming spice and rich toasted sesame flavours, and the good old English Autumn’s stapleContinue reading “An Hawaiian Poke Bowl meets an English Autumn”

Mango, Coconut & Chia Cream

It’s officially the first day of the school holidays for us… Amid various melt-downs there were moments of loveliness.  Breakfast was one of them.  I think we all thoroughly appreciated the slow morning we had.  The sun was shining and we sat in the garden eating and planning our day… With extra time comes aContinue reading “Mango, Coconut & Chia Cream”

It’s Make or Break – Fast…

This post comes late to the party… mainly because the party was late… and blogging the breakfast was far more than I could handle!  So after a weekend of celebrations, a birthday dinner at ‘The Giggling Squid‘ Esher on Thursday night, Hersham Beer Festival on Friday night, a 40th at Weybridge Vandals on Saturday night,Continue reading “It’s Make or Break – Fast…”

Reasons to be healthy, 1…2…3…or Bending over backwards for health!

This is Lupa the Immortal.  Well, technically speaking this is an offspring of Lupa the Immortal, my sourdough starter which came in to being in the very early days of writing this blog (read more in ‘Sourdough, the worlds slowest bread‘).   Lupa spends most of her time in the fridge, slowly fermenting… sometimes she’sContinue reading “Reasons to be healthy, 1…2…3…or Bending over backwards for health!”

Retro Rhubarb and Ginger Compote

When I think of rhubarb I think of ‘Roobarb and Custard’ the 1970’s kids TV show, or Rhubarb and Custard penny sweets, or endless Rhubarb crumbles every Sunday through the summer…  I’m never very sure whether Rhubarb is a vegetable or a fruit and I’m always slightly panicked as to what to do with it. Continue reading “Retro Rhubarb and Ginger Compote”

Salted Caramel Pistachio Oat Pudding (or porridge if you like?)

I knew it’d take a cracking dish to get me back to the blog… and this is most definitely it.  Life has been multi-dimentional and so full lately, in the best possible way… But here’s some blog love.  If you’re a pudding for breakfast lover then this should satiate you’re sweet yearnings.  It’s sweet, salty,Continue reading “Salted Caramel Pistachio Oat Pudding (or porridge if you like?)”
