Potato, Courgette and Onion Soup

Potato, Courgette and Onion Soup

with crisped Dillisk This soup is very easy to make and so comforting. It’s really nursery food that adults can enjoy too; a milky mash of potato, courgette and onion, with some rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper. I’ve actually been making this soup for years […]

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 […]

Potatoes, Beets and Pumpkins – Autumn Recipe Inspiration

Potatoes, Beets and Pumpkins – Autumn Recipe Inspiration

As the weather is slowly getting that bit cooler I thought it would be good to get some nice comforting dishes together. To me that means good stodgy food. What’s healthy and stodgy? Potatoes, of course. The beets I’m adding because I need to learn […]

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Quinoa Tabbouleh

I was looking through my cookery books, hoping for some inspiration and a recipe that couldn’t fail. As I leafing through Blazing Salads 2 (Blazing Salads is vegetarian deli here in Dublin) I came across Quinoa Tabbouleh. I love tabbouleh. It tastes so fresh and […]

Avocado and Almond Smoothie

Avocado and Almond Smoothie

I love avocado and it’s so good for you. A few years ago I had an avocado, honey and milk smoothie which was lovely but my sinuses get very congested if I have a lot of dairy so it wasn’t something I ever made for […]

Roasted Cherry Tomato Salsa

Roasted Cherry Tomato Salsa

Chips and salsa are something I always associate with summer. Even when the weather turns cold, as it has in the last couple of days, it’s such a simple sunny treat to have while you’re nicely curled up on the sofa. I’ve mentioned before that […]
