  • The 4 Best Healthy Breakfast Smoothies

    The 4 Best Healthy Breakfast Smoothies

    Desperation drove me into a health food shop the other day. It was an unusual day regardless of the health shop. It was a day dressed up to look like #newyearnewme, the only thing missing was a towel slung around my shoulders and a bottle of green juice or one of my newly acquired breakfast […]

  • Chicken soup with miso and rice

    Chicken soup with miso and rice

    If self-care had a physical form, it would be in the shape of chicken soup. You might be thinking that you self-cared yourself enough this Christmas – eating all that cheese would be anyone’s ideal form of self-care (besides anyone with lactose intolerance that is), all smug and warm like dipping into a bath of […]

  • Healthy banana oat pancakes with pink peppercorn plums

    Healthy banana oat pancakes with pink peppercorn plums

    Banana oat pancakes were my fanfare for 2023. I lined up all the ingredients on my parents’ glittery red countertop (it’s not the only part of the new house that will be evicted but it will potentially be the most satisfying) and methodically measured everything into a jug then whizzed it all into a gloopy […]

  • The Ultimate Pigs in Blankets

    The Ultimate Pigs in Blankets

    France is big on the potted meats, as you are probably aware, and never more so than at Christmas. This time a year ago, I was complaining about the sheer amount of meat I’d been guzzling. I can’t say the same for this year though, and that is because I’ve been trying out an anti-inflammatory […]

  • Christmas prawn cocktail

    Christmas prawn cocktail

    I try to remain cliché-free when it comes to my blog posts and recipes – ideally, I’d like turn up each week with something unexpected, much like that batty aunt who appears in a kaftan and a new boyfriend every other visit. However, at certain times of year predictability is inevitable. The most predictable of […]

  • Easy stovetop maple pecan granola

    Easy stovetop maple pecan granola

    It’s often at this time of day – around 4pm – that my stomach alarm clock tinkles gently. It’s not the alarming buzz of the one which always inconveniently rings whenever there’s a moment of silence while I’m in company; my physio is very polite and hasn’t mentioned it yet. But at 4pm I am […]

  • Gingerbread marshmallows

    Gingerbread marshmallows

    I appear to have travelled through time. I blinked and somehow it’s advent. Time travel is clearly the only logical answer – although the time machine would have to be invisible and is probably parked in one of the few unused parking spaces outside. Oh and all users would have to have their memories magically […]

  • French cooking: Pain au chocolat

    French cooking: Pain au chocolat

    What are the first three foods that come to mind when you think about France? Take your time, I will wait. Ready? Let’s see – I assume baguettes are up there? Baguettes seem to grow like grass here. What about delicate pastries like eclairs? Or their 1600 cheeses? Basically, anything involving butter? France is pretty […]

  • Toffee Apple Pie

    Toffee Apple Pie

    The beginning of November is marked by a sudden chill in the air, cold hands and feet for people with poor circulation (including yours truly), conkers and shiny toffee apples. Or at least, the toffee apples make an appearance in the UK, the same can’t be said for here in France. So, to recreate that […]

  • Spiced butternut squash muffins

    Spiced butternut squash muffins

    This post was originally published while I was living in Manchester, on 29th October 2018, and I think these little spiced butternut squash muffins deserve so much more from me than being buried in my archives! Here they are with some updated photos. The spooky glamour of Halloween ended quite abruptly for me a couple […]
