TOMATO, FETA & BASIL OMELETTE

HOMEMADE GNOCCHI

Summer so far has been pretty ok. Well, for London anyway. We’ve had quite a few hot and sunny days in a row and that’s quite a novelty. However, the beautiful weather broke last week and instead of sunshine we for thunder and lightning then high winds and heavy rain.…

PERFECT YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS

Don’t ask me why but until a few weeks ago I had never made Yorkshire puddings. Crazy huh? Especially as they’re ridiculously easy to make. Almost as easy as taking an Aunt Bessie’s one out of the freezer and popping it in the oven.  Well, not quite but you get…

ROAST CHICKEN LEGS WITH TOMATOES

I couldn’t decide what to make for dinner on Saturday night so I looked in the fridge for inspiration. I saw some chicken legs…always an easy start, then out of the corner of my eye I noticed a bowl on my kitchen counter overflowing with cherry and plum tomatoes and…
