English Winter Minestrone Soup
English Winter Minestrone Soup

A hearty, seasonal  Minestrone recipe Minestrone soup is one of those glorious dishes that can be completely different depending on what time of year you make it and so which vegetables are in season. Along with carrots, pretty much a given whatever the season, this version includes English potatoes, leeks and onions, beautiful Fenland celery…

Pear and Blackberry pie
Pear and Blackberry pie

As winter arrives with its faithful companions; grey skies, muddy fields and icy windscreens, I find myself turning to the comfort of cosy food to get the feeling of warmth that I miss so much outside of summer. There’s nothing ground-breaking about this recipe (apart from the super easy pastry from Call-me-Cupcake), it’s more just a…

Birthday Parties and Cauliflower salads

Cooking is still proving somewhat tricky in our current state of non-kitcheness. We’ve now been without basic household appliances such as a kitchen sink, oven, hob, washing machine and worktops for 5 months and a full year has passed since we saw most of our kitchenware. Our favourite bowls, our pour-over coffee maker, our spiralizer,…

Strawberry Sandwiches

You know that thing that people say about tomatoes in England. You know, that we get all the crappy tomatoes – that Italians keep all the best, most delicious tomatoes for themselves and that if we ever want to experience the taste of a proper tomato than we have to go to Italy and tussle…

Pimm’s and an Ode to Wimbledon
Pimm’s and an Ode to Wimbledon

Can you believe it’s almost July? Mid-summer really is my favourite time of year; festival season, BBQ season, pretty dresses and no socks season. I’d take all the wasps in Lincolnshire over the cold and wet winter months any day of the year. July also means another one of my favorite summer events – Wimbledon.…

Berry Full Smoothie
Berry Full Smoothie

I know we’re supposed to be stuffing our smoothies with as much spinach, kale and spirulina powder as possible these days, and I do usually opt for a greener smoothie when I make them. But, let’s be honest; no matter how much we try to convince ourselves that they “taste quite nice actually” they are…

Boozy banana and salt chocolate pancakes
Boozy banana and salt chocolate pancakes

Boozy poached banana and salted chocolate pancakes Some grown up pancakes for Shrove Tuesday. These are especially good if you’re giving up either alcohol or chocolate for lent. Or if your not giving anything up but just really like chocolate and banana pancakes. And rum. I’d never really thought about poaching a banana before until…

Pink Rhubarb, Pink Everything
Pink Rhubarb, Pink Everything

Pink Rhubarb, Pink Everything My current obsession with pink shows no sign of slowing down; if anything, it’s got mildly worse. And while I try to come up with new ways to convince Matt that it’s a good idea to paint at least one of the walls in the kitchen a rosy hue, I’ve had…

Homemade hot chocolate and spiced banana bread

Cheering up the chills of winter It’s November 29th. The winter sun is trying it’s damned hardest to warm us all up but there’s only so high a sun can reach during these months and it seems it’s barely lifted a leg over the gate post before it’s time to climb back down to the…

Pumpkin bread
Pumpkin bread

I think I can speak for most amatuer bakers when I say that pulling a beautiful loaf of homemade bread out the oven is one of the most satisfying feelings in baking life. Seeing that welcome crack of the crust along the top, then tapping its floury bottom and hearing the hollow thud of a…

Halloween cake
Halloween cake

Pumpkin and dulche de leche cream cheese Halloween Cake It has been so long since I last baked a cake. So, so long. I guess it’s something to do with trying to eat healthy as I’m definitely one of those bakers that needs multiple tasters throughout the whole cooking process – raw eggs do not…

Pink rhubarb pie for pie week
Pink rhubarb pie for pie week

How absolutely adorable is the pretty pink colour of rhubarb this time of year. Grown in England’s very own curious triangle of the North –  the ‘rhubarb triangle’ (where during the months of January to March farmers live in a candle lit world full of bright pink, tasty rhubarb), it’s lovely pink colour and sweet flavour…

Flippin’ eck!

So I know it’s pretty difficult to beat the classic lemon and sugar combo on Pancake Day but if you’re anything like me you’ll be curious enough to give something new a try. Here are 5 recipes from some of my favourite food blogs that look worthy of a little whisk action this Tuesday. Now…

Robbie’s Roast Chicken
Robbie’s Roast Chicken

I’ve always been a big fan of Burns night, partly because I think any celebration of poetry and the arts should be honored without hesitation, and partly because Scottish single malts and Haggis are two of my most very favourite things. One of the first Romantic’s, Robert Burn’s charming poetry and folk songs include beauties…

Christmas Tree Biscuits
Christmas Tree Biscuits

I’ve been away from home so much this winter that I just couldn’t find time to make either a Christmas Cake or Christmas puddings. So I’ve had to find some new Christmas baking recipes to give the house that amazing smell that only homemade festive treats can do. This is a recipe adapted from the…

Anna Jones’ chocolate puddings

With the Great British Bake Off in full swing, amateur bakers like myself are taking to their mixing bowls armed with spatulas and measuring spoons in a bid to create a show-stopper bake capable of reducing family and friends to tears. Last weeks bread affair left me hankering for the perfect baguette and I’ve anticipated that this…

Lovely Wilderness Festival
Lovely Wilderness Festival

I’m happy to admit that I am a devout festival goer, and if I had that bottomless pocket of cash that so many of us dream of, I would no doubt spend a large portion of mine on a carefully curated arm full of festival wristbands. This year Matt and I were given last minute…

Pancake Day
Pancake Day

WHO DOESN’T LOVE PANCAKE DAY, …or to go by it’s more serious and far less appetising name, Shrove Tuesday. I have always been a little confused as to why this religious festival, intended for reflection and life assessment, has become a day where millions of atheists around the world gather together to ferociously flip pancakes and…

Celery Soup For Dinner
Celery Soup For Dinner

A MIGHTY SOUP THAT’S WORTHY OF A DINNER. Every time I tell my boyfriend that I’m going to make soup for dinner he always looks at me in that same grateful but unsure way and I can almost hear him mentally going through the contents of the fridge as he wonders desperately what he will…

How food blogs won me over
How food blogs won me over

Blogging does not come naturally to me. A couple of years ago you couldn’t have recommended a blog highly enough to me that it would actually make me sit down and enter its URL into my search bar. And trying to get me to update my then pitiful blog was like trying to make Mary…
