Baked Egg and Hot Tomato

Baked Egg and Hot Tomato

Are you a morning person? Do you hop out of bed full of joy and energy ready to greet whatever the world has to offer you? I’m not and I don’t. I often walk into the door frame of the kitchen door as I wander […]

Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie

Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie

This is a dairy-rich vegetarian pie. The topping is creamy mashed potato topped with grated cheese that turns into lovely golden brown bubbling patches as it bakes. One of the earliest recipes I added here was a recipe for vegan shepherd’s pie. I made that […]

Egg and Avocado Bake

Egg and Avocado Bake

I was inspired by Popsugar’s Baked Eggs in Avocado. I really like the look of them. Unfortunately trying to make them was a bit of a ridiculous disaster – and I really think this could only happen to me – because I nearly always buy […]
