Roasted Vegetable Couscous Recipe | Co-op And SORTEDfood*

For years I’ve been saying that a lot of people just don’t know how (or can’t be bothered) to cook anymore and it’s bloody terrifying. I did a food technology GCSE and instead of learning basic skills like different ways to make eggs or how to cook different meats, (you know all the important life skills), we spent hours learning about how a microwave works. Yeah thanks education, that really came in handy.

Easy Fish Pie Recipe Review

I’m back with my first recipe review post of 2017 and I have to say, it’s a blimmin’ delish fish dish. (I’m not even sorry … Well okay, maybe a little bit. I feel ever so slightly ashamed)

I do love a nice fish pie, especially on a cold winter’s evening, and with a nice bit of garlic bread on the side! I like to make this on a Saturday evening so we can have leftovers on Sunday and I don’t have to cook again #resourceful #lazy

Christmas Yule Log Recipe Review

My favourite thing about Christmas has to be yule log. I absolutely love it. Especially with a nice glass of milk! The best kind are the ones with the hard chocolate around them, but to be honest, I’m not too fussy!

I’m pretty sure if I didn’t have this blog there’s no way I would have attempted to try making my own yule log, especially as it’s so easy to buy them, but I do love a challenge!

Christmas Cocktail Recipes*

I’m definitely in the Christmas mood now.  We’ve bought our goose for Christmas dinner, there’s the remains of a yule log in the fridge waiting to be eaten (you can see my post about it here) and the house is looking beautifully festive.

However; there is one thing missing, a good old Christmas cocktail.  Eggnog cocktails to be more precise, bcause let’s face it, Christmas wouldn’t be the same without them and be honest, who doesn’t love snuggling under a blanket watching Christmas films while drinking eggnog?

Kedgeree Recipe Review

I always thought kedgeree was difficult to make. Of course, when I was younger, I didn’t actually know what it was. I just knew that it tasted good. When I found out it was just fish and rice, with some fragrant spices thrown in, I figured I’d give it a whirl.

Prawn Pad Thai Recipe Review

I had loads of blog post ideas for this week, but ran out of time to write any. So while I was about to make dinner, inspiration struck; I could blog about it! Crisis well and truly averted. And luckily for me, it was quick, easy and tasted amazing! (And yes, I know my presentation is a bit, well, shit, but I’m not exactly applying for Masterchef! :D)
