Serves 2 4 slices white bread Spreadable butter 6 chunky fish fingers 2 heaped tbsps mayo 1.5 tbsps capers 1-2 (or more) pickled gherkins Pinch sea salt If you want to make wedges to serve with your sandwich, chop your potatoes and get them in the oven 20-30 minutes prior to cooking your fishfingers. Get the oven on and cook the fishfingers according to pack instructions. While the fishfingers are cooking, chop the capers and gherkins up – chop roughly so you’ve got some super fine bits but with a few sizeable chunks left. Mix in a bowl with the mayonnaise, salt and a little bit of pickle juic ..read more

Leftover Roast Chicken + Aubergine Spaghetti

This is a dinner that can be as quick or slow as you make it. It can be on the table in just under 40 minutes if you’re hungry, but if you’ve got a couple of hours to play with I’d recommend letting it simmer low and slow for as long as you can to let the sauce get richer. In the picture above, it’s served with roast chicken garlic bread – I made this by mixing the reserved juices of a roast chicken with a little olive oil, some garlic salt and some fresh minced garlic and spreading it on bake-at-home rolls. A highly recommended use of leftover roast chicken accoutrements while you’re using up ..read more

One Pot Sausage, Caramelised Fennel and Lemon Pasta

There were about six million sausages left over from a BBQ this weekend and, having exhausted my patience for eating them with gravy (something I didn’t think it possible to tire of, I’ll admit) I was craving something just a little bit lighter and brighter. The lemon and herbs added right at the end of this recipe allow it to just about retain a spring/summer feel, whilst being comforting enough to suit the reality of the weather we’ve actually had to endure this season. It may not have escaped your notice that I have used tory pasta for this dish. Specifically, ditaloni regati from Waitrose ..read more

Spaghetti with Purple Sprouting Broccoli, Feta and Pine Nuts

I have once again allowed months to pass without giving anything I’ve cooked its rightful immortal home on my actual blog. In my defence, I’ve moved house and had probably at least two quarter life crises in the time since I was last here. I’m now fully settled in a little caravan in the Kentish countryside and therefore hope I might find myself back into the swing of properly transcribing anything I knock up that might be of use to you, on an at least semi-regular basis. If I continue to fall short, remember you can always find me on the social media profiles linked at the bottom of this post ..read more

Smoked + Wild Garlic Mac and Cheese

Wild garlic season is just about upon us. Over the next couple of months you’ll clock your favourite food lovers slathering wild garlic pesto on anything and everything, swapping tips on socials and point blank refusing to divulge the best spots for foraging. If you’re local and curious, feel free to drop me a message and I’ll let you know a couple of good spots – failing that, Riverford often include wild garlic in their veg boxes (which I whole heartedly recommend) at this time of year. If you can’t find smoked garlic – I got mine in Big Tesco – regular will do just fine. This recipe serves ..read more

Carrot Cake Baked Oats

If left to my own devices, I would very much be a ‘cake for breakfast’ person almost all of the time. My favourite thing about birthdays is that they usually leave a good few days of cake for breakfast in their wake. Carrot Cake Baked Oats give off big cake for breakfast energy without having to commit to the sugar high or the urgent need for second breakfast (a slice of birthday cake needs a toast chaser, at the very least, to keep one going until lunchtime). This isn’t one of my super-quick-on-the-table-in-two-seconds recipes, I’ve found that during the lockdowns I’ve enjoyed taking a little ..read more

Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup For One

To my fellow waifs and strays eating lunch on their own every day of their sad locked down little lives, this one goes out to you. I often catch myself having a hankering for something like tomato soup but simply cannot be arsed with the obligation to eat soup every day for a fortnight having made it in family-sized quantities. If you find yourself in the same position, I’ve got you. This is delicious. It makes one single serving, it took me half an hour and (as with pretty much everything I ever do) very little effort. Note before starting: you’ll need a stick blender or similar For the soup ..read more

Red Pepper + White Bean Orzo with Saffron + Paprika

This recipe should, I hope, encapsulate everything you ask me for most frequently. Vegetarian (vegan, in fact), but not relying on pretend meat for its protein (not that I’m averse to pretend meat, as you know). A small list of ingredients, not a particularly labour intensive affair and – everybody’s favourite – cheap. I’d say this would comfortably serve three for lunch. In my sad little locked down case, of course, that means one serving is poured into a bowl and two are portioned away in plastic boxes for later in the week. I tend to serve it with greens on the side, too, because I am just ..read more

Marzipan Date Porridge

This year – for the first time in my life – I hosted Christmas at my flat. On Christmas Eve Eve, four pints deep with my best friend, it suddenly hit me that I hadn’t got in the ingredients to make marzipan dates for my Mum (her favourite, and therefore a festive essential). Cue my insisting that we leave the pub immediately to get to the supermarket before it closed and rectify my fatal mistake. After all that, it will surprise nobody to learn that on Christmas Day I was on the prosecco from the very moment I woke up and neglected to remember that marzipan and medjool dates were awaiting my a ..read more
