Cheesy Baked Sweet Potato 

 
I LOVE cheese. I baked the sweet potato in halves as it was so big, this results in a crispy layer of flesh which. I gently lifted up and filled with parsley, chedda and feta cheese. Basically what I had to hand. And popped it back in the oven while I threw together my salad – with sugar snaps mmm-m! Simple as can be!  And next to no prep work! All you need is a bit of time while the potato bakes 🙂

Super Healthy, Super Easy Dessert – Silky Smooth Vegan Pannacotta! 

This is literally 100% guilt free! I have a very health concious aunt who triggers my healthy recipes. Mainly by buying the ingredients and lending me her kitchen 😉 not a bad deal at all. I even get a helping hand in the form of my cousin. Not that it was neede for this easy peasy recipe.

Currently she is gluten free and dairy free (mainly, I’m not going to bore you with the details), this dessert is also vegan. Which is perhaps a first for me… Oh, I almost forgot. Its delicious too!

Rainbow Trout Sicilian Style


This is a lovely summery dish inspired by my time in Sicily, the lady I stayed with cooked almost all her fish like this, our tomatoes don’t quite do the dish justice but its as good as it gets!

Simply pop your whole fish or fillet on a large piece of tin foil, add sliced onion, garlic, parsley, cherry tomatoes, slices of lemon, season and drizzle with olive oil. Wrap it up and pop it all in the oven at 200c for 15-20mins, until the fish gently flakes apart with fork. I put some carrots and thinly sliced new potatoes around the edge of the tray which cooked in the same time.  Continue reading

Spicey Butternut Squash Salad

This was my dinner last night and my pack lunch today, it’s delicious hot or cold.



Peel and cut a butternut squash into bite size pieces, toss with rose harissa paste and olive oil, or flavourings of your choice. Roast with sliced onion and garlic until soft and caramelised. Serve on top of baby leaves and cucmber with peelings of parmasan and I had some chedda too! Easy, simple, delicious. 

Noodles for Noodles! 

Lately I have been living off noodles.

Noodle soup to be more specific. It all started with seeing a recipe for homemade pot noodles. The concept is simple: put noodes, veg and flavours in a container, cover with boiling water, leave sealed for 10 mins, stir and eat! It was suggested as a healthy alternative to taking sandwiches to work, it’s also a hot pack lunch which makes a nice change – providing there is a kettle available of course. It would be a real pain if there wasn’t, you’d be left to pick veg out of dry noodles. Wouldn’t that be enough to ruin your day?

Roasted Rose and White Wine Nectarine and Apricots with Almonds

Here is another super simple dessert which, unlike the chocolate fondant, is guilt free! In fact I had this for breakfast yesterday without even a trace of ‘I shouldn’t be eating dessert for breakfast‘.
Believe it or not, I do try to be healthy but I love to indulge too, everything in moderation right? But if you can make something thats healthy and tastes like a naughty treat then your winning!
