Seafood tower with tomato and rhubarb salsa

The allotment is finally producing and it is looking great. We only got it in December last year but M has been busy. One of the few edible things on it when we got it is rhubarb. It is so plentiful and this plant is quite sweet with a lovely tang of sour, just enough … Continue reading

19May_PrawnDish2

Baked paneer cheese with prawns on avocado and pea mash

It was my day off and I had no idea what to cook. I tried to flick through some cookbooks, some magazines and some blogs for inspiration. Nothing came up and all I knew was that I wanted to eat prawns. I went to the fishmonger and got the prawns and then I raided the … Continue reading

The Liebster award and cake

I have said it before but it is so true, blogging has enabled me to meet so many other lovely bloggers. Sometimes my interest of food takes over and sometimes I can make people glaze over a bit when I go in to foodie overdrive! Meeting other food bloggers means that it is about the … Continue reading

11May_GlazedChicken

Tweaked twice fried chicken with spicy Maple glaze

Lately my mind has been occupied by opportunities and what to make of them. A few years ago I discovered that I love to make jams. There is something so soothing about preparing the fruit or berries and then watch them change in to a jam. The jams then became hot sauce and chutneys. Before … Continue reading

Porterstek, a very Swedish dish

There is a category of people I always feel a faint worry about cooking for, the ones who have what seems like an almost opposite pallet to my own. I love spices, chilli and garlic and use it in just about everything. This time I was looking for a nice recipe and the Swedish cuisine is … Continue reading

Crab stick cakes

The other day I was talking to the fishmonger. As we spoke I couldn’t stop looking at some crab sticks that he had. I actually like crab stick but I wasn’t sure if M would agree. I thought if I bought some and made something interesting with them he might not object. I haven’t eaten … Continue reading

06May_MeatloafMeal

Beetroot and pork meatloaf with a spicy coco cola tomato sauce

I feel so ready for the summer, we have the odd really warm day and then some cold weather sweeps in and out comes the big jacket again. The cold weather makes me feel like eating comfort food and meatloaf is way up there for me. I love it with mash and lots of gravy … Continue reading

04May_TomatoTartClose

Chicken with tomato and goats cheese tart

Lately time has gone by very fast I feel as if I am behind on everything. The laundry if doing it’s best to become a small mountain, the house needs a deep clean and I feel like I might be in need of a girlie night out with a good few glasses of wine. In … Continue reading

08May_CodClose

Cod inspired by the bluebell woods

Ever since I moved here I have heard about woods filled with bluebells. The season is quite short and we missed it last year. This year we had our minds set on finding them. Said and done, we took the dogs and set off on a bluebell hunt. I thought I had an idea of … Continue reading

05May_CrabTian

Tian of crab with mango and wasabi salsa

I was on my way to a meeting today and walked past the fishmongers. A bunch of crabs caught my eye and the fishmonger informed me that crabs are particularly good at this time of the year! I asked him to set one aside for me to pick up after my meeting, how perfect is … Continue reading
