Many, many years ago (my teenage years) I lived with a family who took me under their wing for a little while! Jenny who I refer to as my fake mum was always cooking! She had four kids of her own and every night served up dinner and and dessert. I use to love watching […]

On our recent trip overseas we visited Malta because my husband has family there and our children wanted to see a piece of their history. We were also very eager to try an authentic pastizzi. In Malta they traditionally have either spinach and ricotta or mushy peas as a filling. Both are equally delicious. In […]

When our lives get busy it is easy to fall back on ready made food. Luckily for me we have an amazing local cafe that makes delicious home-style pies and pastries which I often buy and freeze for crazy days. I recently bought the most delicious roast veg and egg pie there as a lunch option for myself and saw that they also sold them in a family size. It was simple to heat up in the oven at the end of a work day and serve with some steamed veg from The Organic Place.
It got me thinking I should try and replicate my own pie to freeze. Whilst there is a lot of cooking time, unless you’re using leftover roast veggies, it was very easy to make. This dish is great for Meat Free Monday or to be portioned out for lunches or even breakfast!
