Chicken and potato traybake

I am a HUGE fan of single cook tray bakes. Less washing up, less mess and easy step by step cooking. You can make a try bake with almost any ingredients. Fish, meat and vegetables. You can make any quantity of food but I usually cook enough for two meals (for myself and small child)….

The simple Italian meats and fruit grazing board

Build the perfect grazing board in just a few simple steps. Whether you are entertaining a large gathering of friends and family or feeding just the closest of loved ones at home, builing grazing boards is oh so simple and rewarding. When I feel a little overwhelmed by the week just had, and don’t wish…

Mixed Herb And Zesty Lemon Gremolata

Gremolata is completely new to me (I know, I’m very late to the game on this one) and recently I have been dressing almost everything with my new mixed herb and zesty lemon gremolata. I can put together a meal for both myself and my son (usually as bland as sand to accommodate a 5…

Mixed Berry and White Chocolate Cookies

These are one of my favourite cookies. Naturally dyed by the mixed fruits and with hints of extra sweetness from the white chocolate chips and on the top a light caramelisation of the fruit and white chocolate peeping through. I also just love that they are pink cookies! There seem to be a lot of…

Rich Beef Bolognese

How is everyone keeping? I am guessing most likely you are all bored, fed up and feeling like this is groundhog year? I know I am. I have quite literally no news. I talk to my family every day, and to be totally honest, I don’t know what we talk about other than which vitamin…

Easy Fried Gnocchi

Gnocchi is one of those things that everyone makes a little differently. I am no expert on making it and I’m pretty sure a lot of people would say this isn’t gnocchi. I don’t make traditional little knuckles of potato dumplings; instead I make slightly larger pieces and fry them in butter and oil. My…

Chocolate Baileys Cake

This chocolate Baileys cake is super rich and totally not dry and crumbly. It is divine! The How to videos are in my highlights on Instagram ‘ChocBaileys cake’ so be sure to check that out. You can make it in any tin. I just wanted to use my Bundt tin for a change. I love…

Rainbow Spaghetti

I really love playing with food and colours and compositions. This rainbow spaghetti is just so cute. It is really important to try to get kids to eat the rainbow. Every different food holds different nutrients and benefits and even if your child won’t eat everything, exposure is important. As a parent, I have been…

Raspberry Oatmeal Cookies

These are really great little cookies. In my mind they are not biscuits as they aren’t crispy and crunchy, but they have a slightly crisp outer edge and a chewy center. I don’t think cookies in general can be healthy if they taste good, but these at least don’t have refined sugar so in my…

Hot Cross Buns

Gently spiced hot cross buns with chai, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla, these buns are fluffy, light and lovely for breakfast or snacks all week. I haven’t always been a fan of hot cross buns, and I don’t think I have bought one in many many years so I kind of forget what they ought to…
