Grow Your Own!

I've always had visions of having a wondrous herb and vegetable patch in my garden, growing my own veggies and living a kind of sustainable existence - deer prancing and birds landing on my shoulder like Snow White usually also feature. The reality is that plants hate me.

It's started to get a bit colder so you know what that means...comfort food!! I hope you'll like this super easy recipe for Cottage Pie and add it to your winter repertoire. This recipe serves 2 and can be made in advance and placed in the freezer.

Toasted Seed & Avocado Salad

During summer, I tend to eat a lot of salads, which gets a bit monotonous. Please enter my new favourite addition - toasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds! And sure lets throw some toasted cashews in there too. Toasted seeds are an amazing snack - toasting them gives them another depth of flavour and the crunchy texture gives the sensation that you're eating crisps - perfect when you're having a snack craving.

Roasted Tomato Chunky Soup

There is something amazing about roasting tomatoes that transforms them from this sweet salad fruit to a hearty, flavourful dinner component. The chariness of the skin and the rich flavour that is released from the roasting process results in a wonderful depth that is incomparable to the raw variety.
