As a Mum I’m always looking for time-saving ways to eat well and overnight oats are just bloomin’ awesome. I’m a total coconut addict so the thought of waking up to bowl of this sunshine yumminess adds cheer to early wake up calls from my little human. (more…)

One of the last jobs I was booked for before taking my maternity leave was The Food Champions Project for the The National Lottery and The English Institute of Sport. So on a rainy winter day last December I hauled all my gear (and my sizeable 8 month pregnant bump) up to London for an epic two day, 40 recipe, shoot.

Roasted Veg & Halloumi Burgers

roasted vegetable, hummus and halloumi burger

The first time I tried halloumi cheese on holiday in Cyprus many years ago I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. As a pre-dinner snack, we would sit outside on the balcony of our apartment at sunset enjoying slices of grilled halloumi and bottles of ice cold beer.

Everyone seems to be talking about Chia seeds at the moment so I thought it was time to see what all the fuss was about. As a rule I try to restrict puds to weekends and then treat myself to whatever I fancy but it’s no bad thing to look for heathier alternatives to processed sugars. Although this recipe is made with natural ingredients it’s still incredibly sweet and perfect for an occasional treat.

Pork with a Creamy Sussex Cider Sauce

In the summer I love sitting outside with an ice cold glass of cider, although I have to admit that overindulging in the past it has given me some of the most evil hangovers imaginable. Serves me right really.

If you find yourself overburdened with hot cross buns this Easter then let me tempt you with this recipe. My twist on bread and butter pudding but even easier to make because the fruit is already in the buns – oh it also has a little luxurious boozy twist. Well why not!
