Honey & Chilli Glaze

Just a quick one for now…. I ❤️ honey. I really do and I’m so fortunate that I can get good local honey from where my work office is in Upshire. Local bees collecting pollen from local flowers and the resulting honey travelling just 5 miles before consumption in my home. Now, tonight is Pork…

Easy Chicken Soup

I love a good soup! Be it a decent tinned soup that we turn to for comfort or a posh carton soup for decadence, soup is a real go to comfort food. Before my SlimmingWorld journey I would often just reach for a tin of tomato soup and consume it with a huge cheese toastie….

Cooking with the Senses

Or in other words how to inspire your friend by teaching her a basic white sauce. As you know from my previous post Know Your Onions and Garlic I was teaching my friend Colette the fine art of listening to your food. It got me thinking that every time I cook, I rarely follow a…

Thai Green Chicken Noodles

Ok, so you can easily make this a vegetarian dish by substituting chicken with sweet potato, but it doesn’t have quite the same ring to it.  Thai Green Sweet Potato Noodles….. hmmmm….. actually it does, but let’s just ignore that for now and get back to this recipe.

A Tough One!

It was pointed out to me recently by a good friend, that I hadn’t posted on here for a while!  For the purposes of this post I shall call this friend Coriander. I realised that Coriander was correct I hadn’t and it took me a moment to think about why not.  Well, some of you…

An Oldie……..

The Dinner with No Name

Regular readers will know that I have a little ritual with meals that I create in the kitchen, I actually have many rituals, but this one involves naming my meals. The names range from “Bunion Risotto” to “Shirley Valentine” (Chips and Egg) for those who have not seen the film or remember the famous “We…

Brain Activity

Sometimes I am amazed that I wake up, and before I even open my eyes, there is an idea forming in my head. I must sometimes dream food. This morning, on my mind was mango. There is a mango in the fruit bowl that was not ripe enough to be included in a fruit salad…
