Chickpea Stew Recipe – Ad

When Knorr Ireland approached me and asked me if I’d be interested in devising a simple recipe to use their stockpots I was delighted to take on the challenge because I do use stockpots and stockcubes on a regular basis. Even though I do make my own homemade stock in the slow cooker, I don’t …

Roasted Tomato Pasta Recipe

It feels weird, to be writing recipes with a big race looming over me. I am obsessing about food in the days of the lead up to the race. I’ve found that easing off meat protein does help my stomach a little bit so I’ve started moving towards a more plant-based diet and move away …

Quick Pickles – Quickles Recipe

My Nana was the first person I saw make quickles. I remember one day she had set out a platter of vegetables for a Summer Salad and she’d made some quick pickles with some button mushrooms on one side, cucumber on the other, and finally onions. My Grandfather was a divil for the pickles and …

Beetroot and Feta salad

My biggest battle with food at the moment is finding a dish that’s simple to prepare and light to eat. The life of a freelancer can be a bit unusual in that I have to roll with the work when it comes in. The past couple of weeks has been particularly jam-packed in terms of …

Honey Roasted Pork Recipe

It’s barbecue weather in our house at the moment. Well I say it is but actually the rest of the family are off playing in sunny gardens and eating barbecue food with my Parents-In-Law. I, however, am in the home office working away. I’ve reached that point in the day where I can’t think straight …

Classic Roast Turkey

Roast dinners aren’t difficult, in fact they are probably the easiest meals that I cook. However, turkeys don’t come in small sizes, so making a classic roast turkey dinner requires you to set aside a decent amount of time to be in the house to keep an eye on your dinner. Which is, I suppose, …

Spanish Fried Rice with Turkey Recipe

Let’s talk about leftover cooked rice. I’ve found it’s impossible to cook a pot of rice and not have some leftovers. Particularly when I’m cooking for a gang, it’s difficult to calculate who will eat what quantities. Monday may be the day that the 6-year-old will eat it all and ask for leftovers, but it …

Have you ever reached into the fridge and pulled out a carton of milk that is perhaps a day past it’s ‘best before’ date, and even though it smells okay you thought you should just pour it down the sink and be done with it? Providing your milk has been stored inside the fridge, and …
