I have just discovered KathEats, a fabulous blog which has inspired me to get off my butt and move. I went to the gym yesterday and 2 hours of walking today. In that same theme I threw together this healthy pasta for Presto Pasta with everything which was in my fridge. I have a nice […]

This month’s Daring Baker challenge was something I hadn’t even heard of before. Opera Cake. This is a serious cake to make for someone whose dessert baking is generally brownies or cookies. I liked what a marathon it was but as a disclaimer I am really more of a bread baker. In fact I think […]

This is such a keeper I can’t even tell you. I haven’t made falafel at home before (not counting a package) but it is really really easy. Totally a 30 minute meal, and even better it is vegetarian, cheap and healthy. If you pan fy them a little first you get them nice, crispy and […]

Four bolognese recipes and five years since my trip to Italy and I finally have THE bolognese recipe. It was the thing I have tried to replicate over and over since I got back and it was sometimes good, sometimes very good but never right. I can’t believe I didn’t try Marcella’s recipe first, for […]

I only know this is called Piccata because when I searched for a lemon caper sauce on Cooks Illustrated I found this recipe. I always thought chicken piccata had tomatoes in it? I guess not. This is then my modified version. I really liked how lemony it was and pounding the chicken makes it cook […]

I have been a little quiet this week since we are at the cabin on vacation. Well…. technically it is a vacation but in practice it is more like landscaping, painting and cleaning chores. We are on Day 5 and today is the first non chore based day. Earlier in the week I made a […]

Maybe you don’t actually hate lettuce but let’s just imagine that when you open up the fridge and take out your lettuce it is covered in aphids. Like COVERED in aphids. You try and wash the lettuce since it is at least half a head but you just can’t get past all the bugs. So […]
