What I eat when dining out often inspires a lot of my home cooking. The new ingredients I decide to experiment with, the flavour combos, the style. I recently had a delicious cauliflower salad, and so have started roasting my own spiced cauliflower at home to add to salads, main dishes, or a delicious vegetable cous cous, which I’ve been having for lunch at work – don’t worry, the recipe is on it’s way. Roasted cauliflower, is so simple, yet get the flavour combinations right, and a spiced version can be 100x better! So much flavour packed into something so nutritious. So here it is, my Roasted Spiced Cauliflower recipe for you to try. I hope you enjoy, and of course, please let me know how…

Scrambles are simple and quick, yet super tasty if you get the right flavour combinations. They make a quick brilliant brunch, for those weekends when you need a speedy option before heading out for the day, or even a delicious light dinner for those evenings when you’re limited on time. What’s more, scrambles are a great source of protein for post-gym meals too. With asparagus still in season, I’m making the most of this versatile vegetable – it’s one of my favourites! Combined with ham in a scramble, served on toasted seeded bread and topped with sliced avocado, it’s been a winning brunch dish recently! Have you got a favourite scramble recipe?

Mondays. Not the best day of the week by far. Surely even people who love their jobs don’t really like Mondays that much. The early start after a weekend of restful sleep, the to-do list ever-growing once again (or building on last week’s which didn’t get finished), the dressing smart (or reasonably), and having to choose what to wear super fast, and the feeling of always being switched on. Gosh, no wonder weekends are wished to arrive sooner! Mondays over the past couple weeks have been made worse by the weather, but I’ve found the perfect cure – a delicious dinner. Comfort food at it’s best. A delicious dinner, can turn an evening round, and make it seem brighter. That time spent in the kitchen…

You can’t beat a recipe passed down from your elders. You know it works, you know it’s tasty, and you know it’s most probably going to impress. Well, this one was no different! Whilst at home a little while ago, my Nanny told me about a new salmon recipe she’d been making quite often – Salmon baked with low fat cream cheese and plum tomatoes. It sounded fab and so I had to give it a go. It’s super simple and easy, doesn’t take long to cook, yet it’s delicious and nutritious, making it a perfect mid-week meal. What’s more, it’s only a few ingredients – don’t you just love those recipes which need five ingredients or less?  It’s great served with cous cous and vegetables, but would be just…

Pancakes are a weekend essential in our flat. If we experiment with different breakfast options one day, we’re bound to have pancakes the next, whether they’re fluffy american style (recipe here) or crepes. Fluffy thick pancakes used to be my favourite. I never used to be a crepe fan. A big stack of thick, light pancakes topped with all manner of toppings, came above the thinner crepe style pancakes any day. But recently, I’ve really got into them. Just as quick and easy to make, with only a few store cupboard ingredients, they’re delicious served with all my fave pancake toppings and have become a regular breakfast option. Whether you enjoy your pancakes with bacon/sausage, or with fruit and yoghurt, these are bound to go down…
