Fettuccini with four P’s (prawns, pancetta, peas and parsley)

In my previous few posts about pasta I mentioned that it is something that G and I don’t normally eat a lot of but it seems that in the past few weeks we have been devouring it a little more regularly. This is possibly due to a couple of reasons. […]

Pumpkin scones

I’ve never considered myself a technical genius or one […]

Brown butter banana tart

Having good friends over for dinner gives me an excellent excuse to create something that I would not normally make. So when one of my girlfriends said she could join us one evening I put my thinking cap on.

My dear friend Cherie came for dinner last night […]

Lime slice

I am fortunate enough to have some wonderful friends who not only recognise my passion for cooking but also foster it in many ways. Their generosity is, at times, somewhat overwhelming although sincerely appreciated. I am often lucky enough to be given ingredients, especially home grown items such as fruit […]

Make your own – Lamb stock

In cooking, there are certain things that are just better made at home, even if they are a little time consuming. Stock is one of those things that, whenever I have the time, I like to make myself. There are some very good chicken and beef stocks on the market so I […]

The problem I often find with low-fat, dairy free, wheat free meals is that while they might be a healthier alternative they can often lack in flavour. […]

Designing a new class – Indian

One of the things that I love most about cooking is passing on all the information that I have learnt over the years. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to do that in several ways. My blog allows me to share my cooking ‘journey’ and thoughts with you all while my classes […]

Banana bran muffins

Having fruit that is a little past its prime seems like an endless reoccurrence in our house, especially when it comes to bananas. I’m not sure if I buy too many or whether neither of us eat enough but there always seems to be some left by the end of […]

Spaghetti alla puttanesca

Winter is a time when I find it extremely easy to stay at home, eat comfort food and invariable put on weight. By the time summer comes around I have to work really hard to try and reverse things. Recently I made a decision to try and avoid that cycle […]
