Low-carb bread rolls

Low-carb bread rolls

“Your home smells like I’ve just walked in to a bakery” were the words of the plumber this morning as he walked through the hallway and he was right, it did. I could have kissed him. It felt like a huge compliment and even though […]

Simple one pan sandwich

Simple one pan sandwich

Monday and Friday are my child free mornings to get work done. Florence is in nursery and so I spend most of my time writing or recipe testing. The first few times she went she utterly hysterical at me leaving her. Seeing her so upset […]

Cauliflower cheesy bites

Cauliflower cheesy bites

Because who doesn’t love cauliflower cheese? Well, my mum for one, but trust me, these are divine. A perfect addition to a salad, Sunday roast, home cooked feast, barbecue, picnic, or just finger food to hand around at a party. Easy to prepare with hardly […]

Lemon and sesame kale crisps

Lemon and sesame kale crisps

A simple and incredibly health friendly recipe for those trying to avoid crisps (chips)! Obviously these aren’t the real thing, but neither are they full of a bucket load of unhealthy ingredients. They are crispy, flavour packed and take next to no time to make. Perfect […]

Pork, Apple and Sage Savoury Bites

Pork, Apple and Sage Savoury Bites

With the Festive / party season fast approaching, wood burners being lit and the heating cranked up, these mini sage and apple savoury bites are the perfect taste tantaliser. They are easy to make and delicious eaten hot or cold. I usually make around 12-14 per batch, […]

Pesto Muffin Frittatas

Pesto Muffin Frittatas

Every time I make these muffins I do so with the intention of having them in the fridge for the week so that if any one’s hungry there’s something delicious to hand. However, no sooner are these made, they are eaten. They are probably one […]

Sweet Potato, Leek and Lime Fritters

Sweet Potato, Leek and Lime Fritters

Whether you have a health condition or not, we should all want to look after our bodies and nourish them with as much nutritional goodness as we can get. I am not a preacher and I certainly would never force how I eat / or […]

Chilli and Lemon Roasted Almonds

Chilli and Lemon Roasted Almonds

One of my favourite snacks of the moment is flavoured almonds. Not shop bought ones I must first add- as these can be coated in lots of unsavoury additions that make the simple almond a bit of a health hazard. Available all year round, almonds are […]

English Breakfast Mini Frittatas

English Breakfast Mini Frittatas

Every weekday morning I walk through the tube station and pass a McDonald’s. It’s the one place that always, no matter what time of day or night, has a queue running outside the door with people piled into it. Lots of teenagers appear there daily to get their 7:30am […]

Spinach and Onion Quiche (Gluten free, Dairy free)

Spinach and Onion Quiche (Gluten free, Dairy free)

Last week on my way home from work, whilst sat on the bus,  I watched in complete disbelief as a mother (laden with shopping bags filled with boxes of cereals, fruit juice and pizza) handed her young son a family sized bag of crisps, a large […]

Kale, Garlic and Avocado Dip

Kale, Garlic and Avocado Dip

Kale is one of the most used vegetables in our household. Each week I go along to our local farmers market and I buy three huge bunches of it for £1 to have with various meals throughout the week. Baked, wok’d, steamed or raw, Kale is […]
