herby carrot pancakes

herby carrot pancakes with salmon and avocado

When I bit into these herby carrot pancakes on my last trip to LA, I did my usual food nerd thing of noting all the flavours and textures into my phone and photographing them from every angle so that I could recreate them for class. I’m sure I missed seeing some famous actor walk by

black bean burgers

black bean burgers

These protein-packed black bean burgers are one of our favourite meat-free Monday dinners. I know they don’t sound like something you can immediately imagine eating, because they do sound a bit too vegan. But trust me, they’re delicious. They pass the carnivore husband and suspicious child test with flying colours, but I love them because

Ask my American born 4 year old what he wants for breakfast and before you’ve even finished the question he’ll have told you. Pancakes. Always pancakes. I can’t always find the time in the morning to indulge him but when I do, these are the grain packed healthy pancakes I make. These are far from

sticky apple one pan crumble

sticky apple one pan crumble

I do love a good crumble and had always made mine in a ceramic dish. Then one day, inspired by the method used for Tarte Tatin, I decided to cut out some dish washing and make the whole blummin thing in a frying pan and my sticky apple one pan crumble was born. The apples

a lighter take on champ

Even though I have Irish grandparents and friends I’d never celebrated St Patrick’s day until I moved to California. This is the land of continuous celebration so being Irish doesn’t get in the way of the excuse to party! The shops here are filled with corned beef and Guinness. Neither of which really float my
