Potato, Artichoke and Cabbage Curry

For the last month or so we’ve been getting an Oddbox, which is a fortnightly delivery of surplus fruit and veg. As it is surplus food you don’t necessarily get the same stuff each week. I really like this element of the boxes as it means I’m trying something new and different with each delivery…. Read more »

Loaded Potato Skins

Did anyone else go to TGI Friday’s as a child? It was one of my favourite places to eat out. We’d go for a special occasion and it always felt like such a treat. Anyway if you did ever go to there then you probably remember their loaded potato skins. And that’s what I’m here… Read more »

In the Kitchen: Shakshuka

  It’s no secret that I’m a big brunch fan. Whether it’s a plate of homemade eggs or a stack of pancakes from one of London’s finest establishments I’m always here for a brunch extravaganza. And while trying a new brunch place is awesome, sometimes making brunch at home is just as good. Not least… Read more »

In the Kitchen: Homemade Bread

The smell of fresh bread is one of my favourite smells in the whole world, I’m sure I’m not the only person to say that. I can’t walk past a bakery without looking longingly at the bread display and trying to convince myself that I need that loaf or baguette. It really is one of… Read more »

In the Kitchen: Homemade Baked Beans Recipe

Today I’m sharing one of my favourite recipes of the moment; my homemade baked beans recipe. Baked beans are delicious year round, but particularly as we wave goodbye to summer and enter the darker months of autumn, when comfort food is essential. What else screams ‘comfort food’ more than baked beans? They’re ideal with sausage… Read more »
