Green Soup with Sea Spaghetti & my 1p bargains!

Last Sunday I popped out for some sugar to make some Gooseberry Jam as my dad, ever the fruit magnet, had been invited to pick gooseberries at a local allotment and kindly delivered a carrier bag full to me. I thought I’d time my visit to my local Tesco to be about an hour and …

Egg, Leek and Potato Curry

Last night I went to cook some pork chops but inspired by Jacqueline of Tinned Tomatoes, hubby said he wanted to have a Meat Free Monday. Well, only too happy to oblige I went to the fridge for some veggie inspiration. There were lots of leeks in the fridge as well as eggs and potatoes …

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. …

Slow Cooked Beef & Vegetable Casserole

I don’t know about you but I really couldn’t live without a bottle of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce in my cupboard as it seems to have so many culinary uses. Whether it’s pepping up a Marie Rose Sauce or adding to a dish such as my Minced Beef and Onions. I remember my dad …

Sumptuous Turkey Pie

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, Leek & Pine Nut Pasta

The other day I’d taken some bacon out of the freezer for the evening meal thinking I’d do a pasta dish. That evening I realised that I also had a packet of leeks begging to be used so rummaged through my cupboards looking for some inspiration. There I found some pine nuts that also needed …
