Homemade Gnocchi Puttanesca

I love watching cooking shows that are not contained within the kitchen.

The Little Quinoa Patties recipe in the book was inspiring and I adapted it to make a delicious snack which... Read More >>

Christmas Honeycomb Cannelloni

  Christmas lunch should be a certified course at a stress management school. It tests nerves and is probably up there with planning a wedding or having a baby. Well, maybe I am being a tad overly dramatic. But if you think about it, the Christmas lunch has all the hallmarks of a life changing event like planning weeks in advance, organising, shopping, preparing, cleaning, presenting and maintaining social obligations while doing all that...
