Sunday mornings are often reserved for waking up, refusing to surface until you absolutely must, 12 cups of coffee from my Wonder Woman mug and then a cannonball movement through the door to crack on with whatever the day has in store for me. However, I will always find time to throw something hot in … Continue reading EGGS POACHED IN CHILLI TOMATOES
Chocolate Orange & Rum Cake. In time for Easter, I want to present to you my lazy boy’s answer to chocolate cake. Seldom do I bake. I’m a very, very lazy baker.

This is evident in my home made rogan josh paste. I happen to bulk make this and store it … Continue reading ROGAN JOSH CURRY PASTE
Roast Tomatoes & Chorizo. I think the time has come to have this discussion. Don’t you just love it? I mean, as if it weren’t enough that it is so tightly packed with enough flavours that I’m happy to eat it raw (don’t judge me), but it also has enough fatty pimentón oils (basically a … Continue reading ROAST TOMATOES & CHORIZO
Honey Chicken & Lemon Roast There is nothing more reassuring during a stressful work day than knowing your dinner is resting idly in the plastic comfort of a ziplock bag in the icy coolness of your freezer. Now I know that may sound like a ‘round the bushes’ way of glorifying chucking a bunch of … Continue reading HONEY CHICKEN & LEMON ROAST
