Everyone asks me for the recipe for this cake, so here it is. It’s just so easy and delicious, that it makes you wonder why you might toil in the kitchen making anything more complicated for probably not a much greater effect.

It amazes me constantly how much the varyin...

Herbs are one of those comestible wonders – amazingly fragrant, aromatic and more words for smelling enticing, and very healthy – similarly with spices. The smell of a fresh bunch of mint makes me, honestly, not being flippant, glad to be alive. And basil? Wow. I can e...

This is a very simple way to get some greens in.

I am not a fan of kale, which is unfortunate because, speaking vegetably, it appears to be unparalleled in terms of nutritional benefits. Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, high in folate, vitamin C and beta- carotene, so gr...

I will not have the cheek to call this a recipe, but I do revel in its genius each time I make it, and sometimes we rack our brains for meal ideas when actually something simple works extremely well to everyone's satisfaction. With January frugality in mind - for our w...

Here is a brilliant recipe for a delicious sort of crackery thing you can use as a base for any kind of canapé topping you like, but which can also be used as a healthy snack for the kids. Flora is rather keen on them. The honey makes them a little sweet so they can pa...

This cake is inspired (make that heavily inspired) by Nigella, Rick Stein and all the other chefs who offer a version of it. It's simple and pleasing so it appears often in baking books. 

This cake naturally uses olive oil and ground a...

I’m a big fan of Christmas, not least for the opportunity it affords me to bake for no other reason than it being a perfect time for baking, and while the shops are full of ridiculously tempting sweets and biscuits and chocolates (I’m looking at you, M&S ) I get a lot...

I can’t understand why this dish isn’t ubiquitous. It’s so simple and so satisfying, and yet I have never come across it anywhere ever, except in a Nigella recipe book, but hers is stuffed with meat – the unhealthiest kind, so I’ve not been tempted to try it.

I am always looking for ways to indulge my sweet tooth without eating unhealthy food - largely a thankless quest, so when I find something good I do tend to become rather zealous about it, and I would like to spread my recent zeal for making home-made chocolate and var...

I adore Mexican food. I would eat it every day if I could – lime, avocado, beans, rice, coriander… heaven. I want to share these three recipes which go together perfectly to make this feast. Sadly it’s a FODMAP, nightshade, AIP nightmare so I don’t eat it often anymore...
