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 …

Curried Pumpkin Soup

As usual we had a pumpkin on the doorstep this Halloween and whereas years ago I never thought to do anything with the scraped out flesh, these days I am very aware of food waste! Last year’s pumpkin was turned into my mother in law’s 80th birthday Pumpkin Fruit Cake but this year I fancied …

Mediterranean Roasted Vegetables – as a main or side dish!

This is a dish I have been making for years and it’s one I make when I just don’t really feel like cooking but want the family to still have something healthy to eat. It’s not an exact recipe set in stone but an idea to use up whatever vegetables you have lurking in your …

Broccoli & Tomato Quiche

When I visited my grandparents as a child there was always an abundance of home cooked food but for some reason the savoury offerings have vanished from my memory (apart from the huge roast turkey dinners at Christmas). I do remember my grandmother’s pie bird though so we must have had some sort of pie! …

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 …

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 …

Slow Cooked Pulled Lamb with White Wine & Root Vegetables

One of our favourite dishes (from a supermarket) is lamb shanks which I have never made at home but really ought to! With this in mind my husband suggested that rather than roasting the leg of lamb we had, why didn’t I slow cook it to replicate the lamb shanks we both love. As I’m …

Monday Pie

I recently came across Monday Pie (a pie you make after your Sunday roast) when searching for ideas to use up left over roast beef. I have come up with my own version which is very simple to make and to avoid raw potato slices I par-boil them as they never really seem to want …

Chinese New Year falls on 31 January this year and marks the start of 15 days of celebration. This year is the year of the horse which is said to bring prosperity and wealth (well I think we could all do with some of that)! We have been lucky enough to be invited to be …

Ham, Cheese and Sweetcorn Turnovers

I love making my own joint of glazed gammon as it’s such an economic way of making several meals and this week I found a new way to use some of the leftovers. I decided to make some turnovers after researching different pies and pasties. For the decoration I was inspired by Michel Roux Jr …
