Salmon with Pak Choi Rice

You don't need an ingredient list as long as your arm to get a tasty meal, in this case it's just 7 ingredients. I like putting together things that are simple to make and that might encourage folks to try, especially for those who aren't perhaps as confident as me in the kitchen. That's part of my reason for starting this blog.... to help people get in the kitchen and try new things. We can all cook, if we're given the right guidance and inspiration. I think you'll enjoy thi

Keema Curry

As you have probably gathered, I'm drawn to food with a bit of flavour, so here is another tasty curry recipe. Something different to do with your minced beef other than chilli and bolognese. It's mild so suitable for everyone and very easy to make. This recipe makes enough for 4 so I cook this amount and pop a few portions in the freezer. The Recipe Ingredients 1 tbsp vegetable oil 1 onion finely chopped 1 clove garlic finely chopped 1 inch piece fresh ginger peeled and fine

Roast Butternut Squash Risotto

Using butternut squash in a risotto was a first for me but it really worked. Funny that when I make a risotto, it nearly always seems to be vegetarian ..... not sure why!

Spicy Potato Wedges with Sprouts & Bacon

It's a perfect dish to share with friends or to watch a favourite film with. I really enjoyed it and I hope you will to ..... please feel free to comment if you try it, I'd love to hear from you!

Coconut Fish Curry

I do love a curry and all different varieties, although I rarely have a fish curry, it's usually chicken or beef for me but every now and then I will try something new.

The recipe Ingredients 2 tbsp vegetable oil 1 medium onion finely chopped 1 yellow pepper finely chopped 1 garlic clove, crushed 1 tsbp mild curry paste (I used balti) 1 inch of peeled fresh ginger, grated 1 red chilli, de-

Jazzy Jelly

Sometimes you get a craving for something sweet and these individual jellies are perfect to curb the craving. They are also a lovely dessert to serve when you have friends over for dinner, as they can be made well in advance. No-one wants to be stuck in the kitchen all night when friends come round. They can be altered to suit your particular favourite flavours, so have fun with them! The Recipe Ingredients 1 sachet of sugar free jelly 2 trifle sponge fingers (broken into pie

Tip: Poaching Eggs The Easy Way

I love poached eggs, although I am yet to find anyone who made them as perfectly as my mum did, however, I just cannot master the spinning water, whirlpool type method that she used, it just ends up in a stringy mess and isn't appetising if even edible at all .... I'm sure many of you can relate to this and have stuck to scrambled or fried eggs instead. Well, I am going to share my top tip with you, which guarantees poached eggs you'll be proud of! The secret is cling film ..
