The finished quesadilla!

Week 37: Feta cheese and chorizo quesadillas

Things I have learnt his week: quesadillas are easy to make, taste awesome but the word is a tricksy one to spell. I made some quesadillas (thanks Google!) on Wednesday night using a recipe from the August edition of Olive Magazine. (There are some similar quesadillia recipes over on BBC Good Food). We don’t always plan our … Continue reading


Week 36: Chicken Tikka (cooked in a homemade tandoor oven)

This week’s New Food Club post has a pretty awesome back story: Meatopia. Yesterday we went over to Marlow for the 30th birthday of our friend Rich, who had decided to host his own Meatopia (inspired by the London event) to celebrate. Basically the idea is everyone brings a barbecue and some meat to cook. All the … Continue reading


Week 35: Sundried tomato twister bread

It is pretty much impossible to watch The Great British Bake Off and not feel inspired to a) eat and b) bake. Two weeks ago (before the drama of #bingate and the Baked Alaska fiasco) it was bread week and after watching Mary and Paul munch their way through a delicious array of loaves I … Continue reading


Week 34: Roasted salt and paprika almonds

I’m sitting here, writing this week’s New Food Club post while nibbling on my nuts.It’s a bit of a cheat recipe this week (as in it’s not really cooking), due to an epically busy weekend with Reading Festival on the horizon (so exciting!).I’ve been meaning to make some spicy nuts for ages, they make great … Continue reading


Week 33: Garlicky crumbed spaghetti

Did you know crispy breadcrumbs (pangritata in Italy) were historically used to top spaghetti when the cheese had run out and are therefore known as ‘poor man’s parmesan’? Nope me neither, until I read that interesting little nugget out to Ben while we were driving to a friends’ barbecue in Marlow. We’d stopped off to … Continue reading


Week 32: Blueberry teabread / Chocolate and raspberry brownies

This weekend was Ben’s birthday and so that meant lots of baking for work. The joy of Ben making for work is that there’s usually so much left over, I get to try some too (yay!). He decided to make two different types of cakes, a blueberry teabread, based on this recipe, and raspberry brownies using a … Continue reading


The Wedding Garter Project

Last Saturday I attended the most beautiful wedding of Cat and Alex, my sister and now brother in law! It really was the most perfect day with a gorgeous ceremony, beautiful dresses, great speeches and two lovely people right at the centre. Before the wedding, knowing how crafty I am, Cat had asked if I … Continue reading


Week 31: Passion fruit cheesecake

I love passion fruit. It’s hands down my favourite fruit, particularly when stirred into a Pornstar Martini. (It still counts as fruity goodness when it’s in a cocktail right?). So when I was looking around for a quick and easy summer pudding to make for the New Food Club post this week, as soon as … Continue reading


Week 30: Pulled pork burritos

Those of you with a keen eye and a good memory might have seen the title of this week’s New Food Club post and cried in outrage at the fact it’s quite similar to the barbecue pulled pork sandwich we made back on Week 15. In some respects it is. The pork came from two shoulder steaks … Continue reading


Week 29: Lemon and Raspberry Flapjacks

To go a bit A-Team on the New Food Club – ‘I love it when a plan comes together’. It doesn’t often always happen when I’m in the kitchen, (as you’ll know if you read about the cheese ball disaster), but when it does, it’s a pretty darn good feeling. Last week Olive magazine landed … Continue reading
