Haddock with homemade Potato Wedges and Tomato-Sugar-Snap stir fry

I think Easter is the perfect time for some homemade fish and chips! I invented this “healthy” version (ok ok, it is battered!) of the English classic because I don’t like making chips at home, you will never find a chip pan in my kitchen. In addition, I don’t like mushy peas or beans (at … Continue reading

The Basil Fairy Tale

My flat mate’s latest purchase (picture) inspired me to this little story. Good luck with that, Iain!

She enjoyed this plant for a couple of days, made delicious food from it and then suddenly the shock … Continue reading
