Winter minestrone

Had enough of all that food over Xmas? Overdone your eating on ham, turkey, sausages and meat in general? Here’s a vegetarian soup to help you through the cold windy days……

Spicy Chicken Wings

Adults love them and for children, you could always do a few with regular chutney instead of chilli sauce, or honey too, so it’s not hot, but still delicious!!

Roast pumpkin soup with blue cheese

Not sure what to do with all those extra pumpkins? Or not sure what to do with all the insides of pumpkins you have from the carvings? Here’s a wonderful idea!

Broad beans, Feta and crisp Parma ham with lemon dressing

Broad beans work wonderfully with these bold flavours. Feta has that amazing salty taste, and the lemon cuts a ‘zing ‘ right through it all.

Cobweb Fudge with Chocolate Spiders

There can’t be anything better than fudge. Sickly sweet, but you can never get enough. Here’s a Halloween idea.

Scrumptious scallops

I never really ate scallops in a big way before, I must admit to not understanding the huge appeal. However, the other day I had dinner at a restaurant, and their scallops were AMAZING! So, in honour of them here’s a recipe to try.

Cooking with children

Little does she know it’s communication, and bonding, and family time together, probably 3 things she’ll hate to do soon, but she just thinks it’s cooking! So I’m going to cook on!

Eggs Wraps

I never thought of wrapping eggs in a Tortilla wrap until I saw a picture if it, but it’s a great idea. Kinda like a egg pancake. I guess you could make pancakes and do it with that too!

Breakfast Soup with Toast Fingers

Another interesting way to make breakfast a fun and entertaining meal for kids! This is rather left field for me , but now and then it’s good to try something TOTALLY different for those little ones…

Toad in the whole with mustard crème fraiche sauce & pickled red cabbage

Winter is almost here. We need to stock up on wholesome food to see us through the winter and toad in the hole is one of the ultimate recipes that can help us squirrel away some calories for the impending cold months.

Tagliatelle with Ragu and Italian sausage

Ok, so I admit I am not a big one for pasta, and I think some Italian dishes are such a production, you are often too exhausted to eat them afterwards. However, my family seems to think they are great, so he’re’s one with Italian sausage you can try.

For an excellent tasting sauce for this dish of pasta with sausages, be sure to use fresh ones from a butcher or a good Italian deli.

Mushroom and Asparagus Quiche

This mushroom and asparagus quiche recipe has no milk ( it uses soy milk) and no eggs ( we use tofu instead) so can be cooked for vegans as well!

Lentil Stew

I have always struggled how to cook lentils, and what to do with them. Here is a stew to try, and it’s really quite easy.
