Cabbage

Sometimes we overlook a basic ingredient. We try to jazz it up too much, add herbs, spices, braise it in wine, just mess around with it so much it looses its real quality. For me cabbage is one of those vegetables that I feel we often loose our way with. Too often cabbage brings back…

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…

A Classic Italian Dish

Following on from my Vegetarian theme, I decided to tackle a simple, classic recipe, which oddly, I have never baked before.  A Spinach & Ricotta Cannelloni.  It’s a moderately easy dish and I took inspiration from the allrecipes website.  I slightly adapted mine, which I found really easy to do.  For my version I used…

Very Quick Pizza

What to have for lunch, when you really fancy something warm and tasty, but don’t have much time.  Try this hybrid of pizzery cheese on toast. I used a packet of Warburtons Square Wraps, but any make or shape of wrap will do I then used a simple passata from Sainsbury’s which I spread over…

It’s All About FOOD!

Today has to rank as one of my perfect days. Forgetting about the issues that G has had to deal with while I have been out and about with staff, customers, clients etc. . . . My day has revolved all around food. From making, learning, eating and now as I blog my thoughts, watching…
