Cheese & Sweetcorn Pancakes with Bacon & Avocado

Cheese & Sweetcorn Pancakes with Bacon & Avocado

These savoury pancakes are great for celebrating Shrove Tuesday without the guilt of eating unhealthily. Don’t get me wrong, sweet pancakes don’t have to be unhealthy either. Myself and Neil regularly enjoy banana and peanut butter pancakes for breakfast on a rest day. However, it’s

Making an Omelette

A while back now, when talking about using the grill, I briefly mentioned that I’m not very good at making omelettes the conventional way in a frying pan and so use the grill to finish them off cooking. I thought it would be a good 

Chicken & Spring Vegetable Risotto

Chicken & Spring Vegetable Risotto

I tried to be a little more adventurous and cheffy with this recipe by incorporating the woody ends of the asparagus in to the meal as well. This reduces waste, adds extra nutrition and intensifies the asparagus flavour. If you use fresh peas or broad

This recipe involves a few more steps and washing up than my usual recipes, but it is simply yummy and although seems a little more complicated, actually very quick to make. It also has the added benefit of being healthy and delicious, but with a 

Cottage Pie with Root Vegetable Mash

Cottage Pie with Root Vegetable Mash

One dish that really takes me back to childhood and having dinner cooked for me by my mum is cottage pie. Whenever I eat it, it brings back memories of the whole family sat together eating dinner. It would be one of her dishes that
