Orange Roasted Carrots and Parsnips

Orange Roasted Carrots and Parsnips

Roasted carrots and parsnips are a staple of roast dinners here – but I feel the orange is underrated in the festive period. We have mackerel pate and clementines for Christmas lunch (the roast is in the evening), and Santa often leaves a clementine in […]

Smoked Mackerel Bake with Stuffing Topping

Smoked Mackerel Bake with Stuffing Topping

  This smoked mackerel bake is designed around one of my favourite ingredients. We even eat smoked mackerel on Christmas day in the form of a pate, mixed with cream cheese. It’s got a lovely fishy taste, and comes ready to eat. It’s just perfect  […]

Honey Lemon Chicken Thighs

Honey Lemon Chicken Thighs

These honey lemon chicken thighs are full of flavour and super easy to make. I love cooking, but life never seems to get any less full, does it? The joy of marinading is that the flavour soaks in while you’re busy doing other things.  With […]

Beef and Cheddar Meatballs

Beef and Cheddar Meatballs

Beef and cheddar meatballs are a great way to add flavour to this staple dish. Who doesn’t like meatballs? Minced (ground) meat is just so cheap and convenient, and there are a lot of lower fat versions available now. My first meatball recipe uses lemon and […]

Oven Bacon Chop with Apple and Mushrooms

Oven Bacon Chop with Apple and Mushrooms

This oven bacon chop recipe is so easy – and bacon chops have so much flavour. If you don’t have bacon chops available you could try this recipe with gammon steaks. Bacon chops, though, are one of the yummy reasons I enjoy shopping at my […]

Smoked Haddock Salad with Sour Cream and Chives

Smoked Haddock Salad with Sour Cream and Chives

I love summer salads – not simply a mixture of raw vegetables, whether home made or bought in a packet, but a proper stick-to-your ribs, full flavoured meal of a salad. I never fully appreciated salads until I visited the mediterranean, where a salad is […]

Slow Cooker Butter Beans with Lemon and Thyme

Slow Cooker Butter Beans with Lemon and Thyme

  These slow cooker butter beans are just so melt in the mouth tender, and full of flavour. We eat a lot of chillies and curries, so using fresh herbs and citrus fruit is a good way to ring the changes without sacrificing flavour, or […]

Roast Squash and Lentil Soup

Roast Squash and Lentil Soup

May doesn’t really seem like the time of year for a squash and lentil soup, but I put the heating on for an hour the other day. It’s a lot cooler than it was this time last year – last week, even. And yet the […]

Easy Fish Fingers with Pesto Crumb

Easy Fish Fingers with Pesto Crumb

These easy fish fingers can be rustled up in a flash, and your family will be begging for more. I love fish fingers, but I’ve never made my own because all that egg dipping and breadcrumbing seems like a lot of hassle and mess when […]

Easy Slow Roast Goose in Apple Juice

Easy Slow Roast Goose in Apple Juice

This slow roast goose makes a succulent Christmas roast a breeze. I love eating Christmas dinner, but I have better things to do with the day than spend it in the kitchen fretting over whether the meat is done. I love eating goose at Christmas […]
