Kiddie Friendly Sweetcorn Fingers…

Or quenelles…. stars…. any shape really that means your kids will be interested in trying them… because that is often the hardest part! These were really easy to make, maybe because I had company in the kitchen helping me out, and tasted great. We ate ours on a day out with lots of bits and…

Veggie Pad Thai (Nut free, Vegan and Gluten Free)

Now I know this is not the traditional Pad Thai recipe, but what I liked most about making this recipe was that it was easy to make, it tasted great and I just loved how beautiful all the colours were in my bowl. I don’t normally make Thai foods as they generally include peanuts which…

Kale, Squash, Lentil salad

We have had some amazing weather this weekend, the sun was out and that meant it was salad time!!!! I’ve bought this salad before, and made it at home a few times, but tried a slightly different twist to it this weekend and it was a success. A success for me is not only having…

Mushroom & Bean Chilli

Hello!!!!! Welcome back to my blog… sorry I have been away for so long, it feels like forever since I have posted anything! We’ve just moved home… well when I say “just” it has been four weeks already. In between all the packing and preparing to move, and then the actual move, and unpacking… there…

Quorn “Shepherds” Pie

Note to self, I really need to up my game with food photography! Everywhere always says to use natural light when taking photos… the thing is I mainly do my cooking at night so that is not always possible. Oh well! So this week is British Pie Week, did you know that? Apparently “British Pie…

Sweet Potato Bean Chilli with Cornbread

I have really enjoyed this morning. Got the kids to nursery/ school in the snow, made it back home and then decided what I was making and had a morning of cooking… all in the warmth of my kitchen while it lightly snowed outside. This morning I felt I wanted something warming so looked at…

Vegan Trinidadian Sunday lunch… but its not Sunday!

Today is definitely a day for staying indoors and writing… the only thing is that I want to eat this meal all over again!!! Now the question is, does a Sunday lunch have to be cooked and eaten ONLY on a Sunday?!?! I was looking online for something to make and came across a picture…

Leek, Mushroom and Potato pie

Oh my where has the time gone. Last week was half term holiday so I got nothing done, and now it is already Thursday and it seems I have also done nothing this week… but I really have! I have been doing lots of cooking, and trialing new recipes, so I’ve got a few dishes…

Valentine’s Day Heart cookies…. vegan and gluten free!

Happy Valentines Day everyone! Might be a little late in the day to send this, but its Valentines still 🙂 Charlie had his school Valentines cake sale last week, and I wanted to do something appropriately themed and also vegan and gluten free, and without any nuts as school policy… tall order!!! I started looking…

Blueberry and Banana Vegan and Gluten Free Pancakes

I always remember as a child when my mom made pancakes, they were always prefect… how?!?! She would always make a big batch and then freeze some which were so easy to defrost and have at any time… maybe that is where I get my tendency to always cook more than needed for any meal…
