Chicken Broth Stellette Soup

I’ve been struggling with a winter cold for weeks now and while I’m normally an ‘it will pass’ kind of sick person, I’m about at the end of my tether with this particular cold, so it’s definitely time to dig out the big guns – in this case a chicken broth stellette soup. The chicken …

DIY Chilli Salt Edible Gifting

Over the summer our local supermarket was selling off a bunch of live chilli plants, and even though I really don’t like chilli – except in hot chocolate – I love the splashes of red against the deep green leaves and I love the brightness it introduces to my kitchen. The plant itself is one …

Winter Vegetable Medley Soup

There’s something very comforting about a good medley of winter vegetables. The potato, parsnip, carrot, pumpkin mix all scream cozy days, pending Christmas and roast dinners. But while I really like the medley of winter vegetables, I don’t always feel like a roast dinner or even just like eating roast vegetables, so I decided to …

Rocky Road Marshmallow Bars

When we’re off camping or on holiday, I like to take a good supply of snacks along as I think not buying snacks is a great way of saving money you can spend on things that will actually be remembered in years to come. In the midst of packing and getting ready for a holiday, …

Savoury Chinese Plum Sauce Recipe

This week the kids and I took a walk in the rain, which was nice on it’s own, but the highlight was finding a plum tree firmly planted on the pavement, so since I didn’t have to knock on anyone’s door for permission, we helped ourselves to about half a kilogram of plums. One of my …

Passion Fruit (Granadilla) Slice

You know that playground chant, “my dad’s bigger than your dad!”, “well, my dad’s stronger than your dad!”, “well, my dad’s faster than your dad”… until blows come or the bell rings? That’s how I feel about passion fruit. Where I grew up in South Africa we didn’t have passion fruit, but granadilla, which is family …

Home-Made Lavender Sugar Recipe

Lavender Sugar is one of those things I’ve always looked at and loved the idea of, but never really known what to do with. I’ve always liked crystallised lavender – it’s both pretty and tasty – but aside from medicinal or household use, I’ve never really known how to actually use lavender in food. Partly …

Calamari, Tomato & Basil Pasta Recipe

I’ve been enjoying the summer weather lately, and been loving the entertainment opportunities that presents too. When I have guests though, I like having pre-prepared, or quick to prepare meals as I don’t like spending ages in the kitchen! That’s just one of the reasons I really enjoy this Calamari, Tomato & Basil Pasta: it’s easy …

Soybean or Broad Bean Salad

I have a grave and lifelong dislike for beans, especially the tinned variety, but I have developed a love for soybeans, sometimes called soyabeans. Aside from planting some Edamame beans, I’ve discovered that Waitrose sell them in the pods, or anonymous ‘Soybeans’ for £1.50 a bag of 400g! This, in my apparently boring life, has …
