Mushroom and sage tagliatelle with garlic breadcrumbs

It's cold outside. Let's just make a bowl of pasta and be done with it. This recipe is pretty easy and super tasty, you could use cheddar if you don't have parmesan and I can use any mushrooms you like.

Spicy bean and cheese wraps

Honestly, a decent packed lunch is what gets me through long days of studying. As much as I love a Tesco meal deal, it's a lot cheaper (and nicer) to make your own lunch. This recipe is pretty quick and easy and involves no cooking and very little washing up - yay! If you'd like … Continue reading Spicy bean and cheese wraps

Butter bean, squash and tomato salad

The sweet tomatoes complement the creamy ricotta and little bites of basil very nicely too. It's safe to say I think I've found my … Continue reading Sunshine pasta: Tomato, ricotta and basil macaroni

Spaghetti with cavolo nero, chestnuts and ricotta

This is the kind of dinner you can knock up in about 15 minutes - it's really easy and, most importantly, delicious. It's also a nice way to eat more greens - which can prove difficult when it's cold and all you want to eat is potatoes! I love the ricotta in this recipe, but … Continue reading Spaghetti with cavolo nero, chestnuts and ricotta

Clementine Drizzle Cake

Clementines really are at their best at this time of year. This is exactly why I couldn't bring myself to throw away some slightly squishy little fruits in our fruit bowl that hadn't quite made the mark. Instead of going in the bin, they've been repurposed in the form of this tasty clementine cake with … Continue reading Clementine Drizzle Cake
