Sumptuous Turkey Pie

I was in a quandary as to what to call this pie as Turkey, Bacon, Leek and Mushroom Pie was too long and Turkey Pie didn’t quite do it justice. So I settled with Sumptuous Turkey Pie as I think this title suits it perfectly. The rich creamy sauce marries so well with the turkey, …

Bacon & Potato Layer Bake

This is another dish that I grew up eating and it’s totally yummy and a great hit with the whole family. Over the years I’ve tweaked the method as the potatoes always had a habit of not cooking and having to spend longer in the oven. To get round this problem I now par boil …

Warm Chicken, Bacon and Tarragon Salad for Fathers Day

My mum seems to be a never ending resource of recipes and one will just pop into my head from time to time and a quick phone call later I have the bones of one of her old dishes which half the time she’s forgotten about herself. As the recipes are all stored in her …

Chilli, Bacon & Chickpea Pasta – a Signature Dish

I was recently invited by Sainsbury’s to share my Signature Dish as they are running a Kitchen Heroes competition where “by Sainsburys” staples come to the rescue. I am the world’s worst meal planner and although I can see 2 or 3 days ahead after that I just tend to wing it; thats when I …

Turkey, Bacon & Leek Pie

British Pie Week

Did you know it’s British Pie Week between 4 – 10 March so in its honour I thought I’d try out the Mermaid Round Pie Dish that was sent to me recently. When I worked in caterers/deli briefly many moons ago we made pies most days but they were always in ceramic with just a …

Bacon Roly Poly

I was recently sent a Mermaid Pudding Sleeve and discovered that there weren’t that many recipes mentioning how to use one. I had never made a roly poly style pudding before and suet never features on my shopping list. This called for some old fashioned British cookery and I knew just the place to look, …

Bacon-wrapped Salmon

Having had it drummed into me during Home Economics lessons that you should eat at least 2 portions of fish a week and one should be oily, I do try to stick to this! Hence I normally cook Salmon or Trout once a week and was running out of new ways to serve it. Then …

Leftover Winter Vegetable Soup

I made this soup just before Christmas as I’d made a glazed gammon joint and therefore had lovely gammon stock and vegetables left over from it. I was also very aware that like most Brits I’d over bought on the sprout front and had a bag I needed to use up before the big day! …

Brunch Quesadillas

Just before Christmas one of our neighbours kindly had another Christmas get together and on the invitation it stated 6-8pm. As my family had got up late that day it was too early to eat before we went out so I decided we were going to have Filipa from Gourmet Mum’s Quesadillas with cheese and …
