Chicken satay strips

Chicken satay is one of my all-time favourite foods! I wanted to create something that was both a healthy option for a picnic, and also a treat! I'm a big fan of powdered peanut butter, particularly for cooking with as it's a low-fat great way to get that peanutty taste, and it mixes in so well with sauces and marinades. There are a lot more options ...

Wild garlic and pumpkin seed pesto

Ever since I moved back to Devon I have made an annual event of going up to the woods near where my parents live and picking some wild garlic to make pesto. At this time of year it carpets woodland, and isn't one of those foraged things that is impossible to find! If you haven't picked it before, then make sure you google it to ensure you are ...

Lemon & thyme chicken penne

  I sometimes struggle to find a meal that I know the whole family will like- my daughters have complete opposite tastes! This is something I cook if I need both something quick, and something that I know everyone will eat. It is very simple to make, but is really tasty- It certainly feels perfect as a lighter pasta dish now we are having ...

Riverford Quick and Light recipe box review

My family was an early adopter of the Riverford veg box- my Mum started buying them back in the early 90's!

We've had some amazing meals over at the Riverford Field Kitchen near Totnes, so much so that I always recommend it to ...

Goodlife vegetarian frozen range

I've never really been one for convenience food, and then when it gets to an evening when I really can't face cooking I kick myself as I have nothing to fall back on and have to still cook from scratch! When Goodlife contacted me asking if I would like to try their vegetarian frozen range I decided to give it a go- I thought if we liked it it would be ...

Comptoir Libanais Exeter- fresh, healthy Lebanese food

I was super- excited when my friend Tilly (who blogs at Mummy Rules) told me that we had been invited to dine at Comptoir Libanais in Exeter. The prospect of a evening out (aptly named a 'Mum-date' by Tilly!), having a good gossip, and some great food and wine couldn't have been more appealing. I was intrigued by the menu at Comptoir Libanais having ...

A Persian Feast for 'Friendsmas'

I feel like I've got my Christmas dinner down to a tee now, we always have a huge turkey from the farm local to my Mum and Dad, we have to have Tom Kerridge's polished carrots, goose fat on the potatoes (slimming's out of the window on Christmas day as far as I'm concerned) and 2 types of stuffing. However, there's a new type of Christmas celebration ...
