Mini Margherita Puff Pizza Pies
My wee boy is staying with his grandparents in Cyprus just now and I'm missing him like crazy. It's lovely to see how much fun he is having, but it's still hard. In his honour, I thought I'd share one of his favourite recipes with you. Simple Margherita puf...

Creamy Mushroom and Leek Risotto
A well cooked risotto is a thing of beauty. An over or under cooked risotto is a tragedy on a plate. Believe me, I've been served both when I've ordered them in restaurants. I don't order them now as I really don't want to be disappointed. What makes a good...

Scottish Raspberry & Mint Cider Cooler
We've had a wonderful summer here in Scotland and that's a rare thing. We've had sunshine all through May and June and it looks like it's going to last through July too. Typically a Scottish summer is a dreich affair with lots of rain and the occasional sun...

Kale and Cashew Pesto Spaghetti
We eat our way through jars and jars of pesto each month  but I sometimes like to make my own. It tastes completely different, depending on which leaves and nuts you use, so you can vary it each time you make it. To make this spaghetti pesto sauce I used ka...

Summer Root Vegetable Soup
Calling this a summer root vegetable soup may be a misnomer. Are these summer root vegetables?  Well no, but they are pretty much year round crops in Scotland. They are grown or available in the summer, this is the summer and it is such a colourful cheerful...

Easy One-Bowl Chocolate Banana Bread
Yes, you guessed it, leftover bananas gone brown and a bit soft.  I just couldn't throw them out. My first thought was smoothie or banana bread? I had to do something with them or Graham would have lobbed them in the bin. He has no patience with brown banan...

Green Power Lunch Wrap
Yeah, I know. Yet another wrap. What can I say? I'm on a roll (excuse the pun).  I just keep thinking up new ideas like these green power lunch wraps.  We all like a bit of variety in our lunches, but we all too often eat the same lunch over and over. It se...

Blueberry and Lemon Oaty Breakfast Bars
You've probably heard me say this before. I'm not the person who eats breakfast every morning. I know I should but I'm just not ready for anything until mid morning. It's fine eating breakfast late on days off, but on mornings where I'm heading to work I'm ...
