A VERY SIMPLE SWEET MOROCCAN SLAW

F O O D / R E C I P E S / Uncategorized

    It is still cold outside. It’s miserable, it’s wet & I’m done. Just get here already, Spring! This super simple sweet slaw (I get double dollar for alliteration) should help cheer up even the gloomiest of days though, so it’s fine. Eat this, put some sunglasses on your face & enjoy the fact that it’s March, and pretty soon we’re going to be eating food like this all the time – maybe even al […]

Last weekend I had a couple of friends over for the evening. One of them I haven’t seen for well over a year so there was a lot of catching up to do! Rather than going out to a fancy restaurant, I thought that it would be really nice to stay at home, all relaxed & cosy and cook a big Italian feast that would see us through the evening. Even though I wanted it […]

Toast 6/52: toasted sourdough, red pepper hummus, sauteed chestnut mushrooms, coriander, sweet chilli sauce. Toast: A weekly project from Tangerine Canteen, where I share some of my favourite toppings on one of my favourite things ever – TOAST! Psst: Did anyone noticed that this is week 7 of 2015?! I don’t exactly know how that happened, but it does kind of explain the maths GCSE result of 1996.

What’s that? Fish? But I thought you were a vegan? No, no, no people, keep up – that was last week! I’m only kind of joking. I haven’t eaten meat for what feels like forever, but I still like myself the odd piece of fish and I think I’ll always be a huge lover of seafood. I consider oily fish a vital part of my diet actually so I was practically giddy when I found […]

OLD BAY STYLE SPICE MIX

Today I’m sharing with you my recipe for one of my favourite spice mixes – Old Bay. It’s not something that we can get over here in the supermarkets, so when I ran out of the stash that I’d been sent from my sister-in-law, I thought I’d better make my own. I use this mix so much, on everything & whilst it was originally created for seafood, I use it all over the place. It’s great in non-mayo […]

I said I was going to make these over the weekend and I kept my word (well, kind of as I made them this morning…) & although I knew that they were bound to be good, because salt & vinegar is one of the best flavour combinations out there, I just didn’t realise that they would be this good. If you like salt & vinegar crisps, then you need to make these! They are a really healthy, yet delicious alternative […]
