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 …

#cutfoodwaste, Meat Free Monday, healthy, Love Food Hate Waste, Vegetarian, winter

After a run of baking and eating things that just aren’t healthy I decided to make a warming winter vegetable soup for dinner and added some curry spices to it. I’d bought one of those stew packs which included a swede, carrots, onions and parsnips to which I added some potato and garlic. I have …

Croquiches

Picnic food, Cross between Croque Monsieur and Quiche Lorraine

Did you know it’s National Picnic Week between 17 – 23 June? Well nor did I until I was invited to take part in a Picnic challenge by Unilever Kitchen. I received a lovely hamper full of products from Hellmans, Colmans, Maille, Knorr, Flora and Bertolli and all I had to do was come up …

Coleslaw

I really wasn’t sure about blogging this as perhaps everyone knows how to make coleslaw. So maybe this post is more about reminding you how easy and cheap it is to make and far tastier than the stuff you can buy in the supermarket. There seem to be two types available, the one where the …

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! …
