Turmeric Rice Stuffed Butternut Squash

I was inspired to cook stuffed butternut squash after having the most delicious stuffed butternut squash at Carluccio’s (With roasted vegetables and pine nuts). Until recently, I hadn’t liked butternut squash (and I called myself a foodie?) and so I had been nervous ordering, wondering whether this was pushing my new found love to the limit….

Chocolate Pie With Peanut Butter Frosting

This pie.  This pie is the pie of dreams. The pie of hope. The pie you travel for hours to stare longingly at through frosted windows, yearning to enjoy just one elegant morsel of its insistently delectable chocolate heaven. If you hadn’t already gathered, I think this is a pretty stellar pie. I had been…

Lemon Courgetti Spaghetti

Though I have created this in the dead of winter and am wrapped up in so many layers an antarctic penguin would overheat just looking at me, this is a great dish for summer! I’m a pasta obsessive, and the majority of my pasta dishes are heavily tomato sauce based, or are rich and creamy….

Pytt i Panna

Pytt i panna is a very traditional dish in Sweden.  Every year my cousins and I anticipate this amazingly homely meal in Sweden in the summer, and when my mum makes it at home, plates are licked clean! IKEA does frozen ready made pytt i panna which is a great alternative if you’re craving it,…

Simple creamy tomato Tortellini

This is a bit of a micro recipe but is just as delicious as any others! My mum used to make this on the regular and it’s always been one of my favourite dishes. Super simple, you can add any vegetables you want (I usually have broccoli, peas, or courgettes), and it comes together in…

Parmesan Potato Side Dish (Vegan)

I’d just finished cooking with potatoes, when I realised that I had several potatoes left over that didn’t fit in my original recipe. To speed up the process of cooking potatoes, I normally microwave them for 3/4 minutes, and therefore I couldn’t simply put the potatoes away for another day, and so decided to make…

Roasted Chickpeas and Vegetables

I’ve fallen into an obsession with roasting chickpeas – honestly, I’ve always thought chickpeas were alright, but this has launched them onto an entirely different level. I would have roasted chickpeas with salt for a snack anyway – I’d even try them with sweet toppings! To me they taste very much like roasted chestnuts; a…

Baked Eggs

This dish was created whilst scrounging for leftovers at my dads house, and my excitement at finding a cast-iron skillet. At home I don’t have any pans that can go into the oven except one enormous one, meaning unless I plan to cook for an entire village, these recipes aren’t usually manageable. This recipe is…

Hasselback Purple Sweet Potatoes

  I got the idea for doing hasselback potatoes from Sweden, where my very talented relative always cooks the most extraordinary meals – one of which is hasselback potatoes with a creamy mushroom sauce. I tend to be shy to cook potatoes as they take a long time, but this is one style that I live…
