Raspberry almond overnight oats – get prepared with this super simple recipe for a tasty make-ahead breakfast of creamy almond flavoured oats with raspberry compote. Also learn more about fibre and how much of it you should be eating! Post sponsored by Arla.
Last week I took a trip to London courtesy of Arla to have a lovely lunch and learn a bit more about fibre and the newly launched Arla Fibre yogurts. Despite government recommendations that we should each be consuming 30g of fibre a day, the average UK adult only eats around 18g – nowhere near enough! (more…)
Vegan chocolate chip cookies – crispy round the edges, chewy in the middle, loaded with chocolate chips and really easy to make; these cookies will become your new favourite recipe!
I had one of those days at the weekend where you just don’t know what you are doing with yourself. I didn’t want to do any of the things that needed to be done round the house so instead I was just faffing about doing nothing at all. To pull myself out of the mood I decided to bake some cookies; and that ended up turning into a testing session to perfect my vegan chocolate chip cookies recipe. (more…)

I have come down with a stinking cold. I don’t get ill very often, maybe about once every five years; so when I do catch a cold it really hits me hard. I have been struggling to do much at all but I have work and diy to be getting on with and Ringo to walk so I’ve spent a lot less time resting than I would like to. It has meant that I really haven’t felt like cooking but I still need tasty, nourishing food, fast! These prawns in an easy Thai coconut sauce are ready in about half an hour and are very low effort but big on flavour. (more…)

Despite being a food blogger there do seem to be a lot of days where I just don’t have time to cook, or simply don’t feel like cooking. I am loathe to rely on ready meals or takeaways however, so quick and simple meals like this easy mushroom linguine are my go-to on those kinds of days. (more…)
Although I do really like making my own pizza from scratch, including the dough; it can be a bit of a faff and takes a while. Not good if you are hungry and craving pizza fast! I am not a fan of shop bought pizza bases, but one really good ready-made solution is naan bread; it makes the perfect pizza base and because it is pre-baked you simply need to melt your cheese to finish off your pizza.

I know that the internet really doesn’t need another recipe for chocolate chip cookies; I am sharing this purely so that I have my recipe neatly written up, rather than having to follow my scribbled recipe on a scrap of paper as I had been doing up until now. Nevertheless, they are very good cookies and are definitely worth adding to your repertoire. (more…)
Spring is just about here, and with it comes an abundance of fresh produce, in particular, green things! This super green spaghetti with lemony rocket & walnut pesto, asparagus, peas and goat’s cheese makes great use of a few of spring’s best vegetables – asparagus, peas (ok, so I cheated on the pea front and used frozen ones, but it would be even better with fresh) and rocket.

Spiced red lentil and root vegetable soup – a hearty, warming and filling vegan soup that is quick and easy to make and incredibly good for you!
There are definite signs of spring in the air and I’ve spotted plenty of flowers starting to bloom while out on my daily dog walks; but the weather is still decidedly wet and chilly and I am not quite out of the craving comfort foods stage yet. Soup is one of the meals that I make most regularly throughout the colder months and this spiced red lentil and root vegetable soup is my new favourite. (more…)
