When I was very young, whenever we would visit my paternal grandmother, I would be look forward to it with utter excited anticipation. I loved visiting her because, no only did she have a huge dog whom I adored, but she also had a beautiful parrot. I don’t remember the parrot’s name but I do […]
I found the most beautiful cherry tomatoes on the vine while grocery shopping last week and just had to buy them. I adore juicy, sweet cherry tomatoes and these were so gorgeous, I couldn’t resist. What I wanted to do with them, I had no idea but I bought them anyway. I find that […]

I love making frittatas when I have left-overs as the frittata lends itself to any flavour combination and any ingredients. I used left-over gammon for this frittata and added sweet caramelised onions and frozen petit pois as a nod to the classic combination of ham and peas. This really is a fantastic way to […]
I love good left-overs. There is nothing as satisfying as standing in front of the fridge and knowing you have a few slices of delicious gammon or roast turkey to turn into something delectable. It’s also satisfying because I feel incredible proud of my resourcefulness and the fact that I’m not wasting when I use […]
(Thanks to my amazing husband Chris for creating this stunning image for World Egg Day) As today is World Egg day, I decided to round up all my favourite Simply Delicious Egg recipes and share them with you. I adore cooking with eggs as they are incredibly nutritious and when cooked right, they are one […]
Today, I won’t be giving you a lengthy post abut how fabulous this dish is. I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Just imagine a soft, oozy egg on top of crisp, salty bacon in a soft roll flavoured with chilli, basil & almond pesto. Simple and perfect. Print Bacon & Egg rolls with almond […]
With this year belonging well and truly to the English, I thought I should attempt to make one of their signature dishes (in my opinion), the Scotch Egg. The first time I saw scotch eggs was in an English food magazine a friend’s mother brought back from the UK when I was 16. My friend […]
Every Saturday morning, without fail, I crave a good breakfast. And almost every Saturday morning, without fail, I kick myself for not being more prepared for this craving. I’m always left with only eggs and bread. No bacon or sausages in sight. Which means that we usually dress ourselves in lightning speed and set […]
Spaghetti Carbonara is one of my absolute favourite, fall-back meals. By that I mean a meal that I can whip up in minutes with ingredients I have in my fridge/freezer with guaranteed success. It’s a really simple pasta but delivers big on flavour and ‘mmmm’-factor. Because this pasta is so simple however, it is necessary […]
Last night after a day filled with admin and e-mails, I was not in the mood to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I wanted something quick and filling but needed comfort as we are experiencing icy weather at the moment. The only problem is that comfort food doesn’t always equate to quick […]
