Turkey Bolognese

It doesn’t seem that long ago that my family would turn their noses up at minced turkey as if it was somehow inferior to minced beef but now the tide has turned and we rarely have minced beef and I can’t say that any of us miss it. I think the more we use an …

Cream of Leek, Potato & Carrot Soup

As a mum I am always trying to make sure my family gets their 5-a-day of fruit and vegetables and hopefully more. As adults we have no problem eating most fruits and vegetables (ok my husband’s not keen berries because of the seeds) but children can be a bit more picky and difficult to please. …

Courgette Soup

I was recently asked if I had a courgette soup recipe on twitter so after flicking through some old recipes of my mother’s I came up with this recipe. Back in the 70’s my mother went to cookery evening classes as she was a very keen cook and always wanting to learn more. The recipe …

My daughter has been nagging me for a long time to make pasta salad because if we’ve ever had to buy lunch out this is what she chooses over a sandwich. So one night feeling inspired I thought about what flavours would work well together and so my Chilli Prawn and Pasta Salad was born. …

Carrot & Coriander Soup

Today I decided I wanted to give the family a healthy low fat lunch and spotting a large bag of carrots and some leftover coriander in the fridge it didn’t take me long to decide what to make. I’d been out to the dentist and buying last minute school stationery with my daughter this morning …

Houmous with Peanut Butter

Houmous, there seem to be an infinite number of ways of spelling it and many more ways of preparing it! I stumbled across an article in the Huffington Post a while ago about using peanut butter instead of tahini in houmous. It was an idea that struck a chord with me immediately as firstly I’m …

Slow Cooked Chicken Italian

The longer you own a piece of equipment the better your understanding of it grows and that is very true of my slow cooker. For a long time I took it as gospel that I had to follow the manufacturer’s instructions about only ever putting hot liquids and foods in my slow cooker and then …

Roasted Tomato, Red Pepper and Chorizo Soup

Yesterday I found myself with a glut of vine tomatoes, peppers and a pack of chorizo and knowing that I had to go to my son’s school in the evening I decided soup and cold food would be the perfect solution. I have tried making a roasted tomato soup before but without stock and it …
