It’s nearly Shrove Tuesday a.k.a stuff yourself silly with pancakes day – which is quite far from the point of Shrove Tuesday, but hey.. PANCAKES! How do you like yours? Thin, thick, sweet, savoury, fruity, chocolaty, sugary, lemony.. plain-y? Continue reading
I love a good chilli, in fact I love everything Mexican! The flavours are just so big and bold that you can’t help but smile with each mouthful as it warms it you up from the inside. For this chilli I’ve made it using a meat-substitute mince (Quorn, specifically) and I know some of you have your reservations about such things but I find this is a perfect thing to sever up to my family, most of which are happy carnivores, where we can all enjoy a good meal together without the usual quips about being meat-free.

You know when you’re out shopping and you really should have eaten before you left because all you see when walking around is fast food, cookies and sweet shops? Well, in a round about way that’s how this recipe came about. Managing to avoid temptation meant I needed something quick, easy and tasty for lunch and that’s where these scrummy little potato cakes come in. Continue reading
How many times has chocolate been done? I mean seriously, you think of it and it’s probably been dipped, coated, filled, layered, moulded and even sculpted with chocolate. Needless to say it takes something pretty special to really stand out from the crowd in the chocolate world, something a little different and something with a touch of exotic flair. That’s exactly what you can expect from Dolce Momento’s range of brigadeiros. Continue reading
Aubergines! Why oh why have I never made a recipe for you lovely lot with Aubergines? It has to be said that I absolutely love them, whether just on their own or mixed up with other flavours. As some of you may have noticed I love versatile foods and Aubergines are exactly that: use them for texture, to thicken, to make sauces silky smooth or chuck a load of bold flavours at them to make your dishes super tasty. You can even make some uber healthy ‘burgers’ by just slicing them up and grilling the bajeebus out of them with a touch of cayenne pepper. Continue reading

This recipe is so simple it hurts, in fact it’s more just like a piece of advice rather than a recipe it self! How many of you always boil your sprouts? I mean, it’s just what you do. Years and years and years (well.. I’m really not that old.. but as long as I have been alive for) I’ve always had my sprouts boiled, or very occasionally, steamed. I just assumed that’s what you did with them and so whenever I made them I done the same. Until now that is! Continue reading
