Hello! …and belated Happy Halloween. This year I carved my first pumpkin ever (mines on the left in the photo above) and then made soup with the left overs. Larger pumpkins aren’t the tastiest but I couldn’t see something edible go in the bin, so it was mixed with onions, garlic, potato, sage and stock […]

Simple Bean and Pasta Soup

Hello┬áIs this thing on? Let’s see if I can remember how to do this. Those of you who know me in real life/Facebook will know I’m currently 8 months pregnant, hence the blogging hiatus. I am now at a stage where I can eat foods other than salt and vinegar crisps, cereal, mashed potatoes and […]

I intend to be back cooking properly after Christmas. I’m having fantasies about broccolli again and haven’t chopped an onion in a month. Thanks to the […]
