Veggie balls with ‘courgetti’ and tomato and basil sauce

Batch Cooking



I cannot recommend batch-cooking highly enough. It expands upon the ‘Cook Once, Eat Twice’ rule – with planning, you can cook up multiple meals that can be kept for the week ahead or popped into the freezer. The benefits extend beyond just money and time; vitally, it ensures that a wholesome, nutritions plate of food is achievable within minutes.

Recipes Festive

festive recipes

Christmas comes but once a year, and while I don’t prescribe over-indulgence, it is a chance to truly celebrate the very best of food. My own indulgence is the chance to invest time cooking for family and friends; pottering, preparing, and cooking up a feast with music and chatter around me. Whether you are cooking for a small or large crowd, you’ll find lots of inspiration here – from this festive Smörgåsbord, to lazy brunches including this fiery Shakshuka, silky soups, plenty of vegan options (I need a drumroll for this moreish Nut Loaf), and delicious puds (rejoice in this heavenly Clementine Cake). I wish you all the happiest of healthy Christmases x
