Part food post, part flower show As I’d already posted some of the food-oriented images from our trip to the Chelsea Flower Show, I originally set out to focus this post on a staple recipe that has sustained both my husband and I during these last few turbulent weeks. The idea was that I would … Continue reading

Pan-seared salmon in a ginger and garlic infused oil

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

It’s pizza time! Homemade pizzas are yum-o!

It’s pizza time! Home-made pizzas If you read my post on Sunday about my disastrous whoopsie pies, you’ll know that I’m not much of a baker.
