Roasted Vegetable Salad with Shaved Parmesan

Feeding the 5000 at the beach in Frinton this weekend for bank holiday I decided to make a big filling salad but with not much time to prepare anything in the mornings I needed to make something I could prep the night before and assemble quickly at the beach. So the night before, I made…

The Ultimate Guide To Roasted Vegetables

One of the easiest side dishes to make and one of the most delicious things to eat.  I eat these at least 2-3 times a week so I thought I’d share my foolproof method for cooking them.  I love that once all the prep work is done, you can just put them into the oven…

Watermelon, Feta & Mint Salad

Tonight, out in Portugal we were having family over for a BBQ and, being the food blogger in the family, I was in charge of creating the menu.  After having seen my Roasted Peach, Feta & Pistachio Salad and my Grilled Halloumi, Green Bean & Pine Nut Salad the family had requested a salad and…

Berry & Mint Fruit Salad with a Honey Lime Dressing

Ok, so this is hardly a recipe (throw some fruit in a bowl, scatter over some mint, sprinkle over a secret dressing and it’s done) but it looked so spectacular and went down so well when I served it at a recent BBQ that I just had to include it! I started with a base…

Fellow-Blogger Friday #2 – Courgetti Spaghetti Round-Up

You say Zucchini, I say Courgettes, you say Zoodles, I say Courgetti… I love my spiraliser!  It allows me to eat all those gorgeous pasta sauces that I wouldn’t otherwise be able to have (due to having to give up my delicious pasta).  It’s so easy to use and clean (I use this spiraliser – Spiralizer Tri-Blade Vegetable…

Roasted Peach, Feta & Pistachio Salad with a Honey & Mustard Dressing

This weekend we had escaped out of London to a beautiful country house about an hour’s drive away.  We were staying with another 4 couples (all friends of Dan’s from University) and a couple of kiddies and had planned to chill out and spend a bit of time together, catching up, playing board games, eating…

Fellow-Blogger Friday #1 – Summer Salads Round-Up

There are so many amazing food-bloggers out there that I’ve met since I started this blog that I wanted to share the love and show you some of the incredible recipes that other people out there are creating! When the sun is shining I always want something healthy and fresh to eat – It’s so much easier to make…

Lentil, Feta & Mint Salad

A few weeks ago when I made dinner for my Swedish Friends, I made this salad and promised you all the recipe.  Well, I made it again last night and took note of the quantities  this time around to share with you all.

Easy Salsa Recipe

I don’t like to buy dips from the supermarket.  I find that 99 times out of 100 they will have sugar added, which is so unnecessary (it hides in everything these days) or some sort of binder like potato starch or maize/rice flour or guar gum or some other strange-sounding ingredients.  To this end I…

Salmon Nicoise Salad

Last night I wanted something light and fresh but still filling and full of good fats and protein to fuel me after my BODYPUMP class.  I settled on a Salmon Salad Nicoise – or my version of one – topped with a gooey poached egg and some avocado and dill salsa.  Fats from the oily…

Roasted Cauliflower with Pine Nuts & Tahini Dressing

I was having a few friends over for dinner tonight and my friend Josephine was bringing over a traditional Swedish dinner of herring and caviar to start followed by Salmon and Potato Salad as a main course. Knowing that I wouldn’t be able to eat the potato salad I decided to create myself a side…
