Cooking

Everyone who knows me knows I love cooking and I love food! I’m not a professional and not everything turns out as I plan but I love to experiment with new flavours and try different cuisines. I’m always on the hunt for new ways to inject some life into our mundane Monday to Friday meals.  

What’s my favourite food?

If you follow me on Pinterest your probably already familiar with my hunger for good food. I love anything with a little spice although I’m partial to comfort food. Nothing beats coming home on a cold winters day to a bowl of piping hot stew and dumplings!

While British classics are always high on my list you’ll never go wrong if you serve up Mexican. Chilli and Fajitas frequently appear on our menu and I’ll openly confess my undying love for avocado’s!

So what are you waiting for?

Come take a look and see if you can find some inspiration for your next dish!
