Bacon and Cabbage soup

This is a hearty and healthy soup perfect for a chilly wintry day. Even better with lots of toasted potato bread slathered in buttered. I came up with this to use up yet more cabbage, along with various odds and ends in the vegetable basket. The base is a simple vegetable soup, and here lies […]


Breakfast Potato Cakes

This is the perfect way to use up leftover mash, heat up some beans whilst you’re frying and maybe poach an egg to sit atop the cakes, a perfect breakfast!
