Mexican Inspired Hot Cocoa

When I was a kid, hot cocoa was a winter staple.  On snow days, my sister and I would brave the elements and build snowmen and pelt each other with snowballs until hypothermia and frostbite were near to setting in.  We'd go inside, dripping and strip out of our wet clothes and hop into warm … Continue reading Mexican Inspired Hot Cocoa

Steph’s Super Comforting Tomato Soup

When I was growing up, Fridays always seemed to be 'soup and sandwich night' at my Memom and Granddad's house.  Inevitably I would opt for the Campbell's Chicken Noodle and a tuna sandwich (no onion!) while my grandparents went for the more adult tomato or veggie soup choice.  Now a grown up myself I'm happy … Continue reading Steph’s Super Comforting Tomato Soup

Steph’s Veggie Moussaka

Oh my dears, if you haven't had moussaka in your life before, what the hell is wrong with you?? To be fair, my first moussaka was an Innocent Veg Pot version a few months back.  And it was yum, but I wasn't freaking out over it.  Then a month or so ago N and I … Continue reading Steph’s Veggie Moussaka

Meatless Day 5 – Steph’s Vegetarian Squash Chilli

I don't know about where you are, but it's pretty grey and drizzly here.  Nothing warms me up more than a good and hearty chilli and this one is a favourite of N's, despite the lack of meat.  We actually have this one on a regular basis because it's easy, super tasty and very versatile. … Continue reading Meatless Day 5 – Steph’s Vegetarian Squash Chilli

Meatless Day 4 – Cheesy Broccoli Pasta Bake

Ahhh, another meatless day! Today we've had a super comforting broccoli pasta bake, this time courtesy of BBC Good Food, who I highly recommend for trying out new recipes.  We've done loads from their site and only had one or two that we didn't care for.  Oh man, I loved this one... though I'm a … Continue reading Meatless Day 4 – Cheesy Broccoli Pasta Bake

Meatless Day 3 – Fennel Soup with French Toast Croutons

I've probably mentioned it before but we're HUGE fans of Jamie Oliver.  After cooking with fennel for the first time a few weeks ago, I thought it might be nice to give it another go this week for our meatless venture.  In Save with Jamie (our new obsession) there's a brilliant recipe for Fennel Soup … Continue reading Meatless Day 3 – Fennel Soup with French Toast Croutons
