Mustard Sausage and Potato Bake

I was fortunate enough to have some days of holiday to use up in finishing my current job but I had to take them toute seule so I decided to go to France to simultaneously see friends and also check if my language classes were serving their purpose. As I would leave my husband on… Continue reading →

Patatas Bravas Traybake

I looove Spanish food. It’s probably my favourite of the European cuisines though I don’t tend to make Spanish food too often as the food I mostly know is Tapas which are a bit of a pain to try and put together as a whole meal. This great idea from BBC Good Food resolves this… Continue reading →

Chocolate Hazelnut Cake

Living a relatively solitary life having started a new job working at home for the past year I don’t tend to make cakes all that often too more. Eating a whole cake between two people is just a bit too much. So when I heard a colleague of my husband’s brought a cake they’d made… Continue reading →

Za’atar Scones & Spring Onion Soup

As a British person, scones are very close to my heart but basically being just a mixture of butter and flour, I don’t eat them as often as I would like. I tend to eat scones as a sweet treat with jam and clotted cream (always jam first! – everyone has an opinion on this… Continue reading →

Kippers with spicy potatoes

Probably shouldn’t be posting this recipe now during working hours but my manager’s out of office and I’m saving my motivation for my new job. Half of tomorrow will be spent planning my mini-trip to Paris and Reims which may result in some rose biscuits on this blog, just in time for the new series… Continue reading →

Mexican stuffed peppers

Looking for another recipe from Rick Stein’s ‘Road to Mexico’, I stumbled upon this stuffed chilli recipe which I was able to adapt for an English kitchen. I served the chillis with some couscous (rice would probably work too but I hadn’t thought about sides and couscous takes 10 minutes) and stale tortillas crisped up… Continue reading →

Gnocchi Puttanesca

I love the idea of gnocchi but I always feel like it’s cheating to not make my own even though I’ll happily use pre-made pasta. I got over my reservations to put this quick to prep meal together on my language class night. At 8.30pm I can’t be bothered with anything too labour intensive. Using… Continue reading →

Potato Taquitos

I always ask my husband if there’s any kind of food he wants when I do my weekly shopping but getting a response is like getting blood out of a stone. However, this time, I did get an answer of Mexican so I planned a couple of Mexican dishes. This potato taquitos was one of… Continue reading →

Cheese & Potato Nests

A little behind on the posting yet again but I did have three interviews for two jobs this last week. I did end up with two job offers so at least it was time well spent. I have a good feeling about the job I picked as my new employer has at least one cat… Continue reading →

Fougasse + Beef & Wine Soup

During my holiday staying close to the town of Fougasse, I took it upon myself to try all of the fougasse that I could find. I normally don’t allow myself too much bread at home due to a mild gluten intolerance and a complete incapacity to stop myself eating the whole lot in two days.… Continue reading →
