Tomato, basil & orzo soup

I've been trying to cook soup more for easy lunches as it's so handy to make in big batches and just reheat, but I do often find that I'm hungry an hour after eating it unless I've had bread with it! That's why I tried out this tomato, basil and orzo soup. The orzo just adds a little more texture and filling power. I nearly always use chopped ...

Spaghetti all'Amatriciana

I just love Italy- the food, the places, the people- it's a dream destination for me. We travelled to Umbria a couple of years ago at the end of the summer holidays- we didn't have a big budget so we found the cheapest flights that we could (they were to Milan, I wouldn't recommend that drive!), and then rented a cheap but beautiful little villa via Air ...

Lemony chilli prawn tagliatelle

I honestly think that one of the best flavour combinations in the world is that of chilli/lemon/garlic, and it goes so beautifully with pasta and prawns that this is one of my favourite things to eat! There's a secret ingredient in this which I think lifts it to the next level- anchovies! Please don't be put off if you aren't an anchovy fan in ...

I had lived in London since leaving university, and as much as I loved it, it's not ...

Celebrating 'Feaster' with Iceland

A friend said to me a while ago, 'but do you really like Iceland, or do you just have to say you do', and I had to assure her that yes, I really do love Iceland, and finding out about their new products and innovations. Not only do they work so hard to constantly come up with new and exciting products, but they are paving the way for other supermarkets by ...

A lot of luxury at Iceland this Christmas

 Last weekend I was invited up to Iceland's test kitchen to try out some of the luxury foods on offer this Christmas. It was a thoroughly festive day- not only did we have demonstrations from Iceland's head chef Neil Nugent on how to cook our Christmas turkey (including a fantastic smoking and salt-baking method), but we were able to sample mince-pie ...

Pink'n'Whites

 I was first introduced to Pink'n'Whites when I joined Slimming World. My friend Emma said I must buy some, as they make a brilliant low-syn snack, and are great to beat a sweet craving. I bought my first packet in the pound shop, and they were such a saviour to me and my sweet tooth! What are Pink'n'Whites? Pink'n' Whites are made of 2 crunchy ...
