It is my dream that one day we will live in the countryside and I will have a vegetable patch where I can grow an abundance of fruits, herbs and vegetables. Living in the city its not quite so easy. We have a lovely little garden, but […]

Chilli and lemongrass scallops: mid week feast!

Late this week we stumbled upon a rare treat, it was pouring with rain outside and neither my husband nor I could decide what to have for supper. I’d been given a voucher for Waitrose for my birthday so we decided to pop along to see how quickly […]
