Slow Cooker Sticky Toffee Pudding

slow cooker sticky toffee pudding

I bought a slow cooker a long time ago and until recently it spent most of its time at the back of a cupboard. It is only recently I have come to get full use of this wonderful piece of kitchen equipment. I must confess however, I know that my slow cooker will inevitably be …

One pan chicken with Braised Rice & Peas

Roast chicken thighs with braised rice and peas

A simple meal with delicious and cosy flavours. This one pan recipe is a great kitchen de-stresser, it just requires a little work at the beginning then pop it into the oven to do the rest. The rice is easily fluffed up with a fork and the peas and leaks give a mellow sweet flavour. …

Eggs in Purgatory

Eggs in Purgatory

Eggs in Purgatory are as you might have guessed from the photo and name are eggs that are poached in a fiery tomato sauce. These aren’t the most photographic eggs in the world but what they lack in appearance they certainly make up for in flavour. As a quick shortcut here, I use spicy Chorizo …

Warm Goat Cheese, Fig & Parma Ham Salad

This is so good warm creamy goat cheese, salty Parma ham and voluptuous sweet figs nestled in a beg of green leaves and drizzled with delicious balsamic vinegar. I have specified spinach leaves for this salad however, you may use any leaves you like. I always have baby spinach in the fridge as I think …

A Mid-Week Curry Feast

Firstly, let me start off by saying that although I call this my Sri Lankan chicken curry it is very inauthentic, and I should probably call it a Sri Lankan inspired chicken curry instead. I sometimes feel that I may be too apologetic about recipes being inauthentic, this is after all what cooking is all …

Moussaka – The Perfect Crowd Pleaser

Moussaka is a Greek dish of usually minced lamb, aubergine, potatoes and creamy sauce that is baked in layers like a lasagne. I really think of this as Greek lasagne and it is every bit as good as that sounds.  I almost always use minced beef here as it is a dish I cook for …
