Hot, Sweet & Sour Chicken Ramen

As it still feels like spring is a long way off, I decided another winter warmer was in order for the recipe this week.  This one is heading to the East for influence, but uses ingredients which you can easily find in your local supermarket.  There is also the added bonus that it’s all cooked in one pan, so there’s ...

Healthy Huevos Rancheros

A taste of Mexico tonight – a healthy version of huevos rancheros.  Huevos Rancheros is one of my favourite quick meals.  Traditionally eaten for breakfast, it’s one of those ones I could eat any time of the day, and one of my go-tos when I’m late getting home.  Sadly the fried corn tortilla in the traditional version makes it something ...

Seville Orange Marmalade

Two of my favourite things are the stunningly beautiful city of Seville and the cute little marmalade sandwich nibbling bear, Paddington. To celebrate my upcoming trip, Paddington’s first foray onto the silver screen, and the relaunch of my site, I’m going to share an extra recipe this week. Gorgeously bitter Seville oranges are only available in January and February, so ... Read More »
