Paprika Chicken

This dish is probably the one that made me decide to progress from writing my 8 Month Challenge blog towards something more focussed on the pleasure of food rather than the journey of weight loss.…

One of my favourite childhood memories has to be that of baking at the weekend with my either my Mum or my Nan (well, that and making pompoms from a ball of wool and two…

Blondies (a.k.a. White Chocolate Brownies)

I can't remember when I had my first Blondies but I'm pretty sure that, like most people, I was somewhat of a skeptic. I mean, why would you make a brownie without the most important…

Barbecue Chilli Pork Burrito Bowl

As I've said before I'm a fan of spicy food,but Michael, my husband, is not. As a result I often make slightly milder versions of recipes when cooking for just the two of is and…

All Butter Shortbread

Christmas is looming, which means it's now time for me to start revisiting a few festive favourites that are always well-received at this time of year. I thought I'd ease myself in gently by baking a…

Goats Cheese and Red Onion Tart

The very first version of this Goats Cheese and Red Onion Tart came into existence many years ago when I was helping my friend Rosey prepare food for a party. Back then we made them a…
