I long ago gave up making any form of New year’s resolutions as I have almost no will power and generally find life gets in the way of doing stuff. However, I have been feeling increasingly uncomfortable with the whole plastic thing and so for 2018, I thought we might try to reduce our plastic… Continue reading Celeriacsly, what the * is oka?
It’s hard to know where the bolognese omelette started life but it definitely had to do with attempting to get EEROD to eat eggs. EEROD adores bolognese but none of my offspring like eggs so I think a few years back now, we put bolognese into an omelette and hey presto, a lunch favourite was… Continue reading The bolognese omelette
Where have I been for 8 months? Not doing my best cooking, that’s where. I remember my mum saying years ago that she lost the joy in cooking having to feed kids with increasingly fussy palettes.

I am sure we made cards… Continue reading Beetroot Ravioli with Salmon and Greens
