Roast Veg and Egg Traybake Hash

Noone’s got any time, have they? I was going to start this post by bemoaning my own lack of time but since it’s an affliction which effects everyone, I’ll just go straight in and say this is SUPER easy and SUPER yum 🙂 I can’t decide whether the star of the show was the fresh…

Oat, Almond and Chocolate Energy Balls

Have energy balls gone out of fashion? Just like the smoothie obsession, which I was late to, the smoothie bowl wave (which I did not get on board with), energy balls seem to be dying a death. Or maybe that’s because everyone now knows how to make them. Anyhoo – I’ve made a couple in…

Wonderful Wednesday 1 August 2018

And it’s a particularly wonderful one, as I’m just back from a good, restful week away in the sun which did me the WORLD of good. We haven’t had a hot holiday for ages, so this recent escape to Northern France was mucho welcome. I even have tanned feet. FEET! Here’s what I particularly loved:…

Hola one and all! How are we all? I hope everyone who reads this is spending time enjoying the little happy things. They’re what make the world go round, don’t ya know? Here’s what’s been tickling me lately: 1. A sweet evening reading with the window open. To be honest, I was daydreaming more than…

Wonderful Wednesday 20 June 2018

It’s still important to make note of the little things 🙂 Here’s what’s made me happy this week: 1. Time. I feel like my life has calmed down a lot lately. I’m no longer chasing my tail and feel I have more time. We’ve made a family decision that, within the bounds of our comparatively…

Wonderful Wednesday 30 May 2018

Hello and welcome to another Wonderful Wednesday! Without further ado, here’s what’s been bringing a smile to my little face this week: 1. Iced coffee. I’m not sure I really like coffee. I like the idea of it. I LOVE the smell of it. But after I’ve taken a deep inhale of that wonderful aroma…

Beetroot Dip

How many dips can one blog have? Well regular readers will know I just can’t resist a good chunk of bread and a dip for lunch. An easy, tasty, portable lunch. And perfect for al fresco dining, which I’ve been doing a lot of recently. Not much to this one as usual – just blend…

Wonderful Wednesday 2 May 2018

I’m all for finding the lovely little things that make me smile and remembering that I’ve got a whole lorra loveliness to be thankful for. And here’s what made the cut this week:…

Carrot and Peanut Butter Dip

Another day, another dip. And it’s a goodie (but aren’t they all?) This is a yummy combo of sweet carrots and garlic, whizzed up with a flash of lime juice and some unctuous peanut butter. Enjoy! Carrot and Peanut Butter Dip (serves 2 greedily, 4 moderately) 6 medium carrots, peeled and chopped into chunks 2…

Wonderful Wednesday 25 April 2018

Eh Oh ladies and gents. Hope you’re all fine and dandy on this lovely jubly Wednesday. It’s apparently the most depressing day of the week. Too far from the last weekend and too long to wait until the upcoming weekend. I can believe that. And so I’ll be forever grateful to Sally for giving and…

Minestrone

It’s a good time of year for a big bowl of filling soup methinks. Maybe it’s just me (?) but I’m starting to want to eat lots and lots of veggies and move more and drink less and etc. etc. etc…. But let’s not be BORING about it shall we? This soup will encourage the…

Wonderful Wednesday 11 April 2018

This week’s left me feeling fulfilled and stimulated… but oh so tired! We’ve been hip hopping around the country, seeing friends, spending time with family and it’s all been lovely, but now I’m ready for a few peaceful days to pitter and potter around the house again. Ying and yang innit. Speaking of which –…
