Greek Style Chicken Traybake

I’m off to Larnaca, Cyprus in a few days and thinking about the trip has got me all excited for Greek flavours.  I love feta cheese and olives and all the grilled meats and can’t wait to make my way through all the mezze that Cyprus has to offer.  With that in mind I decided…

Moules Marinières – Mussels in Garlic & White Wine

We’ve just discovered a wonderful new seafood supplier near us and…

Gratinated Razor Clams with Parmesan & Chorizo

I love finding great local producers and we have just discovered a wonderful seafood supplier down the road from us in Islington, London.  I’d had my heart set on Moules Marinières for a special Anniversary evening with Dan so I sent him off while I was at work to purchase the mussels.  Later that day…

Socca Flatbreads

Whenever I ask someone on a grainfree diet what the one thing they miss eating most is, the answer is inevitably bread!  I’m no different!  I spend a great deal of time in the kitchen coming up with bread alternatives.  I have Grain Free Sandwich Bread, Foccacia and CornBread recipes on the blog already and…

Best Slow Cooked Bolognese Sauce

Bolognese Sauce (or Bolognaise as the English call it) is that classic Italian dish that everyone seems to have a different recipe for.  Below is mine which I’ve perfected over many years and many attempts.  This is the way I prefer to cook and eat it.  I like to make Slow Cooked Bolognese Sauce as it…

Vegan Lentil Shepherds Pie

Happy Veganuary everyone!!  In the spirit of all things Vegan, my friends and I decided to do an entirely Vegan Feast this January.  If you know my friends you’ll know that this was no mean feat!  Dedicated carnivores all of them (I was vegetarian for 16 years and I was the freak of the group!) …

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Chilli & Cumin

As the weather is getting colder I thought it was time to get out and dust off my Slow Cooker which hadn’t been used since last winter!! I love soup, it’s such an easy way to get a lot of vegetables into your diet and I often make a huge batch and take it to…

Slow Cooked Lamb Rogan Josh

Curry is a great choice on a grain free diet.  In fact, I already have a recipe on the blog for my Spicy Chicken Curry.  Most authentic curry houses don’t use any thickeners in their sauces.  If they make it fresh, the vegetables and the act of reducing the sauces means there’s no need for…

Sticky Chinese Chicken Thighs

Having guests over tonight – and with a whole day to cook (what with it being Saturday and not having to go to work) I decided to cook something that takes a bit more time, but which also could be left alone in the oven to do its thing.  Out came the Le Creuset  pan and…

Baked Camembert with Garlic & Rosemary

This has to be one of the easiest yet most crowd pleasing appetisers around!  5 minutes prep, 20 minutes in the oven and you have a huge gooey, melted cheese that is perfect for dipping.  I like to make my Baked Camembert with garlic and rosemary, but you could add any flavours you want.  Honey…
