Easy chicken jalfrezi

I love making curry at home, it's a great way to get in lots of portions of veggies and I never tire of it if there are leftovers! The only thing that I find with a lot of the curry recipes out there is that there are a lot of steps, making pastes, and more often than not a lot of oil. I still think that you can make a really delicious curry at home which doesn't need to involve a lot of faffing, and really cuts out that oil to keep it light and healthy. Chicken jalfrezi is one of those ...

Smoky chicken & jalapeño macaroni cheese

Every year in the run-up to Christmas I promise myself that I won’t let it become stressful, that I’ll pace things out so that I can enjoy it, and not leave anything to the last-minute. I’ve failed this year yet again- Christmas is looming closer and I’ve barely done any Christmas shopping, I haven’t thought about what food I need for the day (apart from having ordered the turkey), the last few days of my girls being at school are a flurry of Nativity, Christmas get-togeth...

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 B&B  in deepest Umbria- it was idyllic, we had fresh herbs in the garden, figs growing in the grounds of the complex- we stocked up on ...
