One Tray Spiced Squash, Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup

There’s nothing quite like starting the New Year, or any year in fact, with a huge, warming bowl of homemade soup. Normally because outside it is cold, wet, windy and just generally not very inviting; I am 100% a summer person! Another reason for wanting to put my face into a huge bowl of smoothContinue reading “One Tray Spiced Squash, Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup”

Bideford Christmas Food and Drink Festival

Of all the things that can give you a big nudge of festive spirit, a crisp morning at a Christmas market that is showcasing a plentiful amount of food and drink stalls is top of my list. I absolutely love a Christmas market! They make my stomach and liver as happy as a Christmas ElfContinue reading “Bideford Christmas Food and Drink Festival”

Candy’s Cuisine

When you think of the small, picturesque village of Appledore, what comes to mind? For me, it’s the stunning views over the estuary; the cobbled streets lined with colourful bunting; intricate crochet items hanging from the trees with pride; and who can forget the basically world famous clotted cream ice-cream (if you know, you know).Continue reading “Candy’s Cuisine”

The Seacliff Restaurant at Sandy Cove Hotel

I don’t know about you, but a typical Tuesday night never normally comprises of anything majorly exciting, does it? There might be a little exercise involved, followed by the never ending question of “what do you want for dinner?”, cooking said dinner after a lengthy decision making process, before getting comfy in front of theContinue reading “The Seacliff Restaurant at Sandy Cove Hotel”

Caramel and Pecan Banana Flapjack

Don’t panic everyone, I am still here! Very much alive and kicking and I do remember how to write. So, hello once again; long time no see! Or read? Anyway, amongst the radio silence on my little blog for a little while, my ever loved banana flapjacks made a comeback last week wearing a shinyContinue reading “Caramel and Pecan Banana Flapjack”

Soy and Sesame Crispy Baked Tofu

Well, this is a little bit exciting for a gusty May Wednesday afternoon. Not only have I been out for lunch (shock), purchased a big slab of takeaway Victoria sponge (even bigger shock), but here I am typing out my first savoury recipe that has nothing to do with breakfast, brunch or flapjack (mind blown).Continue reading “Soy and Sesame Crispy Baked Tofu”

Fruit and Banana Oat Sachet Flapjacks

It has been an absolute hot minute since a homemade banana based flapjack has graced my taste buds. Can you believe it? Well, do not fear my fellow overripe banana loving friends because this hiatus was swiftly grounded to a halt this week, bringing a very Monday-ish Monday, to a glorious end. Detouring into aContinue reading “Fruit and Banana Oat Sachet Flapjacks”

Pulses: Lentils, Beans and Peas that Pack a Punch

If you had asked me ten years ago, “Leanne, we would love you to write a blog all about the wonderful world of pulses”, I would have politely responded to you with two questions. The first questioning, “what exactly is a blog?”. Shortly followed by the second and probably more obvious, “I’ve heard of thisContinue reading “Pulses: Lentils, Beans and Peas that Pack a Punch”

Spiced Carrot Cake Baked Oats

Yep, you read the title right; I have jumped onto the extremely long bandwagon of baked oats. Well, I actually boarded said wagon a month or so ago, fell off it briefly, but climbed straight back onto the front seat this week and guided it perfectly into my mouth. To be honest, when I firstContinue reading “Spiced Carrot Cake Baked Oats”

Pear and Chocolate Oat Cups

What a week and a bit it has been! First, it was national pizza day, which I shouldn’t even need to explain how great a day that is (I really, REALLY love pizza). Next up, it was pancake day, or days in my case. Savoury, fluffy American style pancakes the day before to prepare (obviously)Continue reading “Pear and Chocolate Oat Cups”
