This tuscan pasta salad makes a perfect hearty dinner, side salad or lunch – or take along to your next barbecue or potluck. I love a hearty salad – I’m not saying your diet’s done for if you eat this, but it is a full […]

Poached Salmon with Miso Sauce

Poached Salmon with Miso Sauce

Why poached salmon with miso sauce? Well, we try to eat fish every Friday because it’s tasty, easy to cook and so good for you. I love poaching it because it doesn’t dry out so much that way. If you overcook it just flake it […]

Couscous Salad with Feta and Chickpeas

Couscous Salad with Feta and Chickpeas

This couscous salad with feta is an easy to make mouthful of summer. It’s Easter Monday today, and it’s rained so much one of our flower beds has developed a small lake. We can’t complain, though, it’s been snowing in some areas, and we’ve had […]

Halloumi Salad with Bulghur Wheat

Cauliflower and Lentil Curry with Coconut Milk

Cauliflower and Lentil Curry with Coconut Milk

This cauliflower and lentil curry is the perfect winter warmer, and great for introducing children to curry. I can say this with certainty as my 3 year old, who gobbled up curry when he was a baby, is going through a fussy patch. I can’t […]

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 […]

Baked Yogurt Marinated Salmon

Baked Yogurt Marinated Salmon

Marinated salmon is the perfect Friday tea – easy and full of flavour. This recipe is inspired by tandoori fish – but I smother it in yogurt and bake it, for moistness and convenience. If you forget about it in the oven it will forgive […]

Tinned Mackerel Salad with Lime and Coriander

Tinned Mackerel Salad with Lime and Coriander

This tinned mackerel salad with coriander (cilantro) and lime is a hint of Mexican inspired freshness for the summer – and packed with nutrition. We sometimes eat tinned fish in sandwiches (check out my tinned mackerel sandwiches post). We often buy more than we need, however, […]
