simple smoked salmon with feta & ricotta whip on grainy toasts

Happy New Yeeeeeeeeear!!!!! Welcome back for 2019, I hope your year has started as well as mine has…(more on that later), first up I thought we would ease into things very gently with something which is barely a recipe at all – simple smoked salmon with feta and ricotta whip. I originally put this together […]

tomato baked eggs with prosciutto turkish toasts

Serves 4 Hungry? Can I make a suggestion for Sunday morning brunch (or easy dinner even) – eggs baked in a warming, spicy tomato sauce, rich and fragrant with the addition of salty feta and olives. To finish off the turkish toast fingers wrapped in crispy prosciutto made for dipping into the soft yellow yolks […]

potato latkes with smoked salmon, feta cream cheese whip & quick pickled red onions

  L’il re-post of this recipe from October last year. My apologies but I have been so flat-out with the book and work, that things have been a bit quiet on the bloggie front lately. Counting down to final deadlines and then it will be back to business as usual 🙂 I can’t wait to […]

zucchini & pea fritters with feta yoghurt whip

Goooood morning – and I hope that if you are in New Zealand, you are hunkered down somewhere safe and dry as we await the arrival of the ‘biggest storm in 50 years’. Bloody hell – not good timing with people travelling around the country to visit loved ones for Easter…so today’s recipe is my […]

mini pesto, proscuitto, & kumara loaves with walnuts & semi-dried tomatoes

Good Friday morning – woah that just made me think about Easter coming soon – where is this year going?!? Today’s recipe is one I put together for the lovely Dish magazine, and it’s an ideal super-easy autumn weekend baking project. The mini loaves (or you can make them as muffins) are moist and flavour […]

New Year’s restorative breakfast – starting 2017 right

easy like sunday morning – poached eggs with hummus, avocado & dukkah

Just re-posting this little beauty from a while back…can’t help myself, it’s raining, I don’t want to get out of bed…wish it was Sunday morning! :)Feeling easy like Sunday morning, thanks Lionel Richie, and thanks yoga, which seems to have some kind of calmative effect on me so that when I finish, I can float […]

shakshuka with homemade cumin labneh

Morning all – for once, not from bed with my mug of tea (been there done that), it is 7:22am and I am tapping away at my keyboard in my office instead. Generally speaking I am not a fan of people who always arrive late, flapping about, gasping for air and talking about how busy […]

black bean, corn & chickpea fritters with lime tomato salsa, avocado, coriander & fried egg

Just in time for the weekend – these fritters would make a great breakfast-lunch-or-dinner option for a lazy weekend stuck indoors while it hoses down with rain outside! I made up the recipe as the lovely Will has been occasionally cooking recipes from the blog for my very lucky Henry. The thing is Henry is […]
