Tomorrow is the big day – exam time! I have been off on Thursday and Friday on study leave and in between reading my notes, I have been watching a lot of cooking programmes. I am always fascinated by Jamie Oliver’s 30 minute meals programme and I have been able to enjoy the delights of 15 minute meals over the last few days as well. I saw him make Asian burgers with salad and noodles. […]

Breakfasts / Dinners / Lunches

This was one of those dishes that was made by just shoving everything in a pan and ended up being a delicious weekend brunch. Although we had this as brunch, you could easily have it for lunch or an evening meal. The ingredients list below may look quite big but just do as I did and throw in what you have at home. That way you don’t need to buy lots of ingredients and you will […]

I’m back. Tanned, full of beautiful Spanish food and more than just a little depressed at the thought of going back to work tomorrow. I have spent the whole day washing clothes, cleaning and getting even more depressed as my tan seems to be fading before my eyes. So to ease the pain, I thought I would share some foodie delights from my holiday. Hopefully, the lovely

Classic American burger with caramelised bacon, cheese and relish

Burgers / Dinners / Pub food

I can’t take credit for these incredible burgers. This was all my boyfriend’s work. In case you haven’t noticed from the many burgers on the blog, he is a big fan of burgers. These ones are humungous (hence the American title) and taste delicious. For me, these are classic American burgers. The pattie is a massive hunk of beef with a few bits and pieces to bring out the flavour but nothing too overpowering. The burger is topped with melted […]

Salmon fishcakes with tartar sauce

Dinners / Pub food

These fishcakes are so tasty and really easy to make. They are quickly becoming a classic pub food dish so are an ideal addition to the Sunday pub food section especially since they are fairly healthy which is great if, like me, you are on your beach body diet at the moment. Although the weather isn’t too great today, this is a perfect quick and summery dish to have after the Wimbledon final washed down with an ice-cold […]

Flatbreads with proscuitto, fig and goats cheese

Bread / Dinners / Savoury treats

This is the simplest recipe for making flatbreads. I have seen lots of recipes recently with yeast involved. This one doesn’t have any. Flatbreads as the name suggests are flat so there is no pressing need to include yeast when these work just as well and this way you have one less thing to buy at the supermarket. As you know if you read the blog, I love planning what food I want to make at […]

Bread / Dinners

Now that I have had my first go at bread, I am becoming well and truly addicted. By the time the weekend comes around, I have planned my next bake. As I was searching for a recipe this week, I read this in Leith’s Baking Bible: “Frequently, making a successful loaf ignites a passion for bread-making and it becomes part of the pattern of life, if only to recapture the unequalled smell and intense pleasure […]

This is an ideal recipe for a sunny bank holiday weekend. I know plenty of people have been having barbecues this weekend and this would be the perfect dish to share. The colours are so inviting and the flavours are fresh and delicious. The idea for this dish came from my friend, Linda. She recently posted a picture on instagram of a fig and halloumi salad which she had made and it looked amazing. Figs and […]
