I was very excited to be invited to take part in a Virtual Blogger Come Dine With Me organised by Russell Hobbs in which I could use any of their Illumina range of products to make my course. I was allocated the starter and after unpacking all 5 of my new products which included the …

Shepherd’s Pie

You may have spotted the Sainsbury campaign to Make Your Roast Go Further so as I’m always trying to cook economically I jumped at the chance to join in! I bought a lovely joint of beef and with some of the leftovers decided to make a Shepherd’s Pie. This was a bit of brave decision …

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 …

Mixed Tomato Chutney

Nigel Slater, Multi-coloured Tomatoes

I recently had the good fortune to be given 6 packets of “Bistro Tomatoes” from my sister which cost 25p each and not wanting to let any go to waste I knew that most of them would need to be preserved. After a quick web search I came up with Nigel Slater’s Mixed Tomato Chutney …

Tomato, Red Onion & Coriander Salad

Sometimes less is more with food and this salad is certainly testament to that. I’ve not really been feeling the salad vibe recently with the weather being so atrocious but whenever we have curry I always make this salad as an accompaniment . If you can make it in advance all the better to allow …

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 …

Quick Tom Yum Soup with Poached Egg

I had been meaning to post this recipe for a long time as I used to make it so often and then just fell out of the habit. Today I noticed a lonely jar of Tom Yum Soup Paste at the back of the cupboard and remembered I had a few mushrooms that needed using …

Vegetable Dhal Curry

With the credit crunch snapping at our heals I decided to go on “frugal” shopping spree and as well as half price chicken I came home with 5kg of Basmati rice for £4 and 2kg of red lentils for £2 which is a huge saving on the usual smaller packs I buy! My husband is …

Tomato, Carrot and Dill Soup

Tomato, Carrot and Dill Soup

Many moons ago I worked for a few months in a catering firm that was also a delicatessen.  One of the soups we made was Tomato, Carrot and Dill and it is the only flavour I can remember as it was my favourite. More than 2 decades have passed by and I decided it was …

Simple Ratatouille

Ratatouille

I went to the market the other day and there were so many cheap offers that I came home with armfuls of vegetables for a pittance.  Nine peppers cost me only £1 as did 3 aubergines and 2 giant courgettes.  I therefore simply had to make Ratatouille which my children have had a fascination with …
