Easy Flatbread Pizza

These pizzas are a great last minute dinner. So easy to make and a great (healthier) alternative to takeout pizza. You need to start with flatbreads rather than tortillas (try a turkish corner shop for the best) as they are sturdier and will hold up to the toppings better. I often make an absurdly quick […]


Chickpea Fritters

This is part of my resolution to actually cook something from the various food magazines I buy every month. These little chickpea fritters are from Olive. I made them as a starter when some friends came over, but they are pretty filling so would make a good lunch. I layered them with chargrilled aubergine and […]


A New Ready Meal…

I can’t remember the last time I bought a ready meal. Seriously. I’d rather eat a boiled egg and soldiers or beans on toast or a bowl of ice cream for my tea. Not only are they expensive, but they are generally pretty unappetising affairs. But now, Innocent have gone and brought out their veg […]


Cauliflower Cheese

Most things are improved by the addition of cheese sauce. I remember eating a sunday dinner at a friend’s house once; the usual roast potatoes, carrots, parsnips and greens.

Pasta with blue cheese and walnuts

This is a seriously easy pasta sauce. Basically just stir some blue cheese, a little chopped garlic and some chopped walnuts into (hot) cooked pasta. The cheese melts and forms a silky sauce for the pasta. This is amazing if you REALLY love blue cheese otherwise, it can be a bit strong, in which case, […]


My Favourite Cheese Sandwich

This is the ultimate Saturday afternoon snack. Well actually its a pretty good snack any time, I just always end up having it on a Saturday afternoon. This is no ordinary cheese sandwich. Its grilled cheese, and the cheese should be very strong cheddar (try Montgomery cheddar)topped with slowly cooked onions, some chopped gherkins and […]


Macaroni Cheese

Macaroni Cheese is without doubt, my all time favourite food. By macaroni cheese, I only mean my mum’s version, unadulterated with anything but unhealthy amounts of cheese. What could be better? Its like a hug in a bowl. As with all the best food, its steeped in memory for me, we always have macaroni cheese […]
