Home-made beats shop bought yet again: easy peasy hummus

Easy peasy hummus.

Easy as long as you don’t mind the washing up I’ve had a can of chickpeas sitting in my cupboard for almost a year – that’s how long it’s been since I’ve wanted to try making my own hummus. Sooooo many people have said that hummus is easy to make but when you work a … Continue reading

Pan-seared salmon in a ginger and garlic infused oil

Sunday roast fish lunch for me!

In a pink frame of mind As you may know, I’m fending for myself at the moment. I spent Sunday making some spaggie boll sauce (as you do), most of which I will freeze but some which I’ll keep to re-heat quickly during this week. However, just because I had to cook for myself this … Continue reading

A rib-sticking winter warmer: sherry stewed lamb stroganoff

Looks like a curry but I promise you it's not!

My mom couldn’t stomach the taste or smell of it so when we were growing up, she’d only concede to roasting a leg of lamb (which she herself wouldn’t eat) once every couple of years.
