I wait all year for my week of skiing. I’m not a very daring skier, and often find it quite stressful, but the clear mountain air, amazing food, spa treatments and some time with my husband, it all adds up to a pretty good week away. A holiday! Until this year where it ended up […]

I recently stumbled upon a bargain. Not a new pair of shoes or a coat. I mean an real bargain, an edible one. No, not chocolate! Parsnips! Thanks to Tesco I found 4kg of perfectly ok parsnips for ….. £1.09! Lucky me! Although I had forgotten that I had parked the car a distance away and […]

I’ve done recipes for chocolate courgette cake and beetroot cake, in the past, and even this one made it into a blog a couple of years ago. As it’s squash time again, I thought I’d re-write and re-post! Squash are becoming so popular with lots of different varieties out there. They need a lot of […]

A little bit of naughtiness for you. Cake every now and then doesn’t do you any harm. Dark chocolate and courgettes seem to be good balance! I was given this recipe a few years ago by a client. Since then it has been shared a few times, a bit like my butternut squash cake recipe! […]

When I was away skiing in Austria, there were bottles of Kombucha at breakfast, so this became a new morning ritual, together with the Bircher! I had occasionally bought small bottles of Kombucha from Abel and Cole with my veg box, but in order to have a daily dose, it would be quite expensive. So why […]

So much to learn, so much to discover. Why on earth had I never tried over night oats? (Also known as Bircher). My life has changed! No more crunching through granola, although I do still have it occasionally. I discovered this brilliant super filling breakfast while away in Austria. I wasn’t sure what it was, […]

poached eggs on avocado brunch

This seems to be the ‘in thing’ for brunch in most restaurants at the moment, and I love it! It’s not difficult to put together at home either, just make sure your avocado is ripe. We all know that can be a bit tricky sometimes. Has anyone tried this tip to ripen one? Packed with goodness. […]

  This is the season for soup making. Every TV cook has a selection of great new recipes for amazingly nourishing soups, so inspiration is easy to find. I am often looking for a couple of new ones each winter season, but they always pare down to the same base. It’s just the spices you […]

It wasn’t until I started skiing in Austria that I discovered the joys of raw fermented sauerkraut. Every day with the second course salad I would pile up raw cabbage and enjoy every mouthful. It was just like coleslaw without the mayo, but I didn’t realise exactly how good it was for me until I […]

For once I am organised for Christmas. Well, as far as the Christmas cake making goes anyway. I’m sure with social media and especially instagram, we can all see if we are lagging behind in the preparation stakes and this can cause a bit of panic. We have quieter Christmases now that grandparents have passed […]
