Parsnip and Potato Hash

I’m really getting into winter cooking and my current love affair is with parsnips, so sweet and tasty, roasted up with some paprika and chilli to balance the sweetness, there’s not much better. I made this hash for breakfast the other day, the parsnips were my effort to sneak in a few more vegetables but […]


Mexican Breakfast

As with most things I make, this isn’t exactly authentic, but who cares when it tastes this good. And it did, believe me. This is a kind melding together of all things vaguely Mexican that I know of, initially inspired by this recipe from BBC Good Food, I made the spicy bean mixture, topped with […]


Swiss chard and Onion Tart

I know I’ve not been posting regularly recently. Its mostly because I’ve been eating fairly mediocre food that certainly isn’t getting me excited, so I figured not many people would be either. Its amazing how quickly it is to fall into the habit of not cooking and eating rubbish food, and I’m obsessed with food! […]

Easy Peasy Pizza

With a little inspiration from BBC Good Food and driven by hunger, wine and the lack of food in Tesco Metro, we came up with these little babies when my friends Brid and Jenny came to visit from oxford. Possibly the easiest pizzas ever (apart from the ones that get delivered to your door) We […]

Huevos Rancheros

Huevos rancheros is the perfect brunch, something a bit more special than your average fry up. Its basically eggs fried/poached in a spicy tomato salsa. I’ve seen recipes where you fry the eggs separately and add the salsa on top, but I prefer cooking the eggs in the sauce. If you were being authentic, you […]


Potato, Onion and Goat’s Cheese Tart

Mmmm this tart was delicious. In a bid to use my new heart shaped tin,we found this recipe on the BBC Good Food website, which I think is a lot better than the BBC food website, there’s still the mine of recipes but you get great pictures, new and innovative recipes without the rubbish Ready […]
