Potato, Cheese and Onion Hand Pies

Hand pie… Pasty… What’s in a name? No but seriously, that’s an actual question I’m asking you. I could Google it, I guess, but shouting desperately into the void is really more on-brand for me. Anyway, this is basically a recipe for four individual, self-contained pies – if you’ve ever perused a certain high street…

Veggie Festive Bakes

What do we want? Christmas food! When do we want it? As early as possible because 2020 has been hard and honestly, why shouldn’t we start filling ourselves with cranberry sauce as early as possible? If Christmas is the season to be jolly, I dare say we could use a bit of that now. There’s nothing quite…

Crispy Lentil “Meatball” Flatbreads with Curry Mayo

You know what I love? Tinned lentils. I also love dried lentils – in fact, I have yet to meet a lentil I don’t like. Lentils, man! They’re high in protein, tasty, filling, cheap, versatile… It’s love, and I’m not ashamed. I wasn’t actually sure how this recipe was going to turn out, but I…

Spinach Mac & Cheese

She speaks! And what a gooey, cheesy caterwaul she projects across this land. (Sorry, that was gross.) Like the majority of people, I’ve been dealing with lockdown (insofar as our government have managed to put one in place – and let’s not even go there). Have I been dealing with it well? Reasonably so, I…

Sweet Potato, Aubergine & Feta “Sausage” Rolls

No banter today, pals! Straight into the good stuff; the good stuff being, in this case, a super easy and tasty veggie sausage roll. This is a one-pan recipe, great for snacking and lunchboxes, easy to customise… It’s got it all. Sweet Potato, Aubergine & Feta “Sausage” Rolls (Vegetarian, Gluten-free) Makes 16 sausage rolls Preparation…

Spiced Vegetable, Cashew & Goats’ Cheese Strudel

In order to write this, I levered myself up out of the nest I’d made in the corner of the sofa, set out the necessary writing tools on the dining room table, and put on my largest, fluffiest dressing gown. The cat is sitting on the chair next to me – I’m sure he’ll be…

White Chocolate & Sloe Gin Raspberry Brownies

I decided to make these brownies after an immensely successful attempt at Jack Monroe’s incredible Double Chocolate Guinness Brownies (which I cannot recommend enthusiastically enough). Once I’d put booze in a brownie once, I was determined to do it again, with the desirable side-effect of reducing the amount of alcohol taunting me from the top…

Festive Fruity Feta Couscous

There are many things I love in life. Seeing greyhound puppies wearing tiny coats; those mini white chocolate Toblerone that come in massive sharing bags, and which I do not share; really hot showers where your skin is about one degree away from blistering under the spray… I could go on. But in this instance,…

Cheese & Spinach Roulade

Okay, kids. This is easily one of the easiest and cheesiest recipes in my repertoire – aside from the Easy Cheesy Lentil Lasagne, which takes top spot for obvious reasons – and is in fact just a tweak on an existing recipe, which was already pretty good to begin with (Crustless Cheese & Spinach Flan)….
