Salmon Fishcakes This week has been a bit of a rollercoaster – I got a new phone – high, I broke my beloved pastry board – low, I went to a great gig with The King- high, I broke my toilet seat simply by sitting on it – embarrassing low. All this […]

Whole Baked Trout with Mediterranean
Trout – its got a really bad name for itself, always has done and I fear it always will do. When I was growing up, people used the term ‘trout pout’ to describe botched lip filler jobs – offensive to both parties, today things are are not much better as the urban dictionary now describes […]

Whole Baked Trout with Mediterranean Vegetables

Rack of Lamb with a Parmesan and Herb Crust
Spring is finally in hooray! No offence Winter, the hot chocolate and endless carbs were good but I can’t say I am going to be sad to see the back of you! Well I guess that is until I loose precisely one hours sleep over it but, its a small price to pay for a little sunshine […]

nut roast and wishful thinking day
What? Never heard of nut roast and wishful thinking day? Well, that’s probably because it doesn’t exist, its nonsense, I made it up, and… it will never catch on because it’s silly. I wish the same could be said for the equally stupid but far more misogynistic ‘Steak and blow job day’ […]

Nut Roast and Wishful Thinking Day

Yet more roast action in the King household this weekend, something which becomes a bit of an inevitability when it is Sunday, Winter and well… England! I have been determined to get some video action going on here so I decided to bite the bullet and give it a go choosing Yorkshire Puddings as my subject. […]

Roast Pork Shoulder with Crackling
Well hello Sunday, nice to see you again! Sun really is the operative word today, it is beaming down on us, bringing welcome patches of heat to an otherwise chilly day. I say this as if I have been outside basking in it but truthfully I bailed from the dog walk citing cleaning as […]

Roast Pork Shoulder with Crackling

So, I have been really poorly this week, I think I just had too much action last weekend and my body is rebelling. Unfortunately for me, when i’m feeling under the weather I get an insatiable hankering for comfort food and this little bout has been no exception as I have effortlessly worked my […]


Sardine Linguini
I’m back! Sorry you didn’t hear a peep from me last week, I was busy celebrating my 27th birthday jam paked with eating, drinking and general ‘Vida Loca’ living, however it is all over for another year now and as my detox gets under way, I am finally ready to share a simply delicious recipe that is […]

Lip Smackin’ Linguini

Apple Crumble
Sunday, the day of rest, roasts and apple crumble. We have the rest side of things pretty much covered, we always manage a bit of a lie in and I usually potter around in the garden drinking tea and playing with Sid, as for the roast well that is always a done […]

Apple Crumble

Spicy Chicken
  If in doubt, buy chicken. This is my philosophy which, to be fair, I rarely have to put into practice. I quite honestly spend most of my days dreaming about exactly what I want to have for dinner, lovingly preparing a shopping list with little headings and the occasional random doodle however, every […]

Miracle Marinade

A usual weeknight in ‘The King’ household consists of hummus, spices (hot chilli powder, cumin, smoked paprika) and a limitless supply of breadsticks. I get to work on this the second I walk through the door, it takes about 30 seconds, requires zero thought and means I can take my time over lovingly putting together Dinner. […]

Mushroom and Halloumi Bruschetta

Marrow, chances are you’ve never heard of it. Belonging to the best possible vegetable group- the squash family- this poor vegetable has got to be one of the most widely disliked vegetables ever known to man (ok, that is a big statement but forgive me, I have had a long day and feel […]
