Bakewell Cake

Bakewell Cake

Following on from my last cake recipe, I am sticking with the marzipan theme!

Easter Simnel Cake

Easter Simnel Cake

  For around the past 8 years I have made an Easter Simnel Cake for Easter weekend. I’m not a huge fan of fruit cake but if there’s marzipan involved it’s a different matter completely. This recipe isn’t my own, it’s from The Guardian. I’ve […]

Mexican Loaded Peppers

Mexican Loaded Peppers

  Right… I have a bit of a problem with stuffed peppers. I understand they are a firm veggie/vegan option favourite but in my experience they’re usually small, not filling and often bland. Here is my alternative – mexican loaded peppers! It’s an easy mid week […]

Celery Pesto

Celery Pesto

  Recently I went on holiday to Fuerteventura where a couple of veggie/vegan cafes had celery pesto on the menu. After having it with pasta, I worked out it was celery leaves and parsley. It’s quite different to your standard basil so I wanted to […]

Classic Hummus

Classic Hummus

Vegan Paella

Vegan Paella

  Another recipe from my recent holiday to Fuerteventura. I had never had paella until this time as I had always thought it was a fish only kind of thing. I really liked the sharing of a big dish in the middle of the table. […]

Leek & Potato Soup

Leek & Potato Soup

  I love leek and potato soup (or any soup really). It’s so warming on a cold evening after a long day. There is a risk that leek and potato soup can be quite bland, the ingredients in this recipe ensure it’s full of flavour. […]

Rosewater & Pistachio Biscuits

Rosewater & Pistachio Biscuits

  I love baking for an occasion, even if it is the novelty of Valentine’s day. Instead of a chocolate heavy recipe, I have opted for a very light and floral combination of rosewater and pistachios. The rosewater I used was not massively strong so […]

My Larder Essentials

My Larder Essentials

  I am completely obsessed with putting things in jars in my kitchen. Despite being compact, it’s organised in my own way. Although a large space is taken up by various teas I seem to collect…   I thought it would be a good idea […]
