Crispy Baked Falafel


I have to say, I'm pretty mad for a good falafel, but have never actually attempted making them at home before, mainly due to the deep-fried factor. That was until I discovered this recipe on the Cookie + Kate website, and realised that my favourite chick pea treat could be made in the oven. Obviously I hit the shops immediately.

Soba Noodle Salad with Sesame Dressing & Crispy Tofu


If you're a long time reader of this blog, you'll probably know that I love a good salad, and that I have many salad-related recipes up my sleeve, ready to bust out at any given moment. What you may not know, however, is that I rarely get excited by salads, dressings and the like. That is, up until now.

Bread & Butter Pickles


As much as I'd like to be able to take credit for this rather popular recipe, I have to be honest and give all the glory to the wonderful Stephanie Alexander. I've been making these pickles from her gigantic cookbook, The Cook's Companion, for quite a few years now (typically at Christmas; often as gifts) and they never, ever fail to impress. I also have to admit I have no idea why they are called bread and butter pickles, but they definitely taste good as an accompaniment to both those ingredients, so perhaps that's the reason.

Quinoa Salad with Roasted Sweet Potato, Broccoli & Halloumi


Seems like now we can all pronounce it correctly, we just can't get enough of quinoa. I know I can't, and given the demand for this particular recipe, it would appear that I am not alone.

Mexican Quinoa Salad with Sriracha Yoghurt


It's all fun and games until your pants don't fit anymore...

I have to say, it's been a very long and cold winter this year, and as we approach the end of it I've come to the unfortunate realisation that my jeans are significantly tighter than they were three months ago. Time for a few salads, am I right?

Pesto Grain Salad


Things have certainly changed since my last post, dear readers, as I went back to being vegetarian at the beginning of 2015. So no more bacon fat salads for me! Unfortunately, for some of you I'm sure, that also means none for you either.
