Sweet And Savoury French Toast Recipe

Have you ever found a local shop that you hesitate in telling other people about because you’re worried it won’t be so special anymore? That’s how I feel about The Lime Kiln in Julianstown. Now I know that the gastro-pub is fantastic, in fact if you’re interested to hear what I think you can read …

Wholesome Frittata

This frittata tastes delicious while still warm at dinner, but is also the perfect next day lunchbox fare because it’s just as nice cold. There’s no reason why eating healthily should be hard to do!

Baked Spaghetti Omelette

My kids love how visually appealing this baked spaghetti omelette is. It’s low on ingredients, which means it’s easy to make, this also means that you can add any sort of side dish that you like. We prefer to eat ours with a fresh chunky salad. Perfect hot or cold, if you don’t finish it …

Lazy Porridge Pancakes

Are these lazy porridge pancakes the new way to eat your porridge? I’m not certain how new this concept is. I vividly remember the pot of porridge and water going on the (cold) hob overnight to soak before the next morning from my childhood. If you’re not a big fan of eating wet porridge in …

Housewife’s Monday Lunch

Today I’m showing my leftover love to Bubble and Squeak; known in some parts as the Housewife’s Monday Lunch.

Tortilla or Spanish Omelette

When I was in my early twenties I was lucky to share a house with some Spanish girls who were working locally. It is a haze now but I do remember how to make a mean Tortilla or Spanish Omelette.

Fattoush Salad

This week I’m conjuring up memories of time spent in the Middle East in my childhood. This is not a precise recipe for Fattoush Salad but a kitchen sink interpretation instead.

Baked Omelette

Would you believe it, eggs and yoghurt go extremely well together? Rather than cook it on the hob, this oven baked omelette needs very little work.
