Fruity Mini Muffins

Ok, ok, there are some choc chips here: sometimes only a choc chip muffin will do. However – its getting to berry season and they are SO GOOD in little muffins (any muffins really who am I kidding) and they freeze up so well. Lunchboxes never looked so good! My favourite combos are: blueberry and […]

In honour of St Paddy’s Day, let’s have some potatoes! With greens! If you don’t know any Irish folks who can explain to you how to have the fluffiest mashed potato ever, turn to YouTube: there are a few videos with hints and tips for the full Eire way. My go-to is always: hot milk […]

Spinach and Feta Quiche

There’s really nothing like a true quiche: the silky, creamy filling wrapped around your favourite ingredients atop a crunchy pastry base… it’s worth the extra work that levels it up from an easy frittata! The use of cream in this recipe is what makes everything so smooth and gooey and is totally necessary and cannot […]

Tuna Mornay

Tuna Mornay

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 […]
