Green lasagne

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that I think I might actually prefer this lasagne to the normal meaty version that I make, it’s really that yummy. As with all lasagnes (lasagni?) it takes a while to make, but it’s deffo worth taking the time to infuse the milk before… Continue reading Green lasagne

Brussels sprouts salad

High praise indeed.… Continue reading Smoked mackerel, orange + almond salad

Oh boy this is good, it’s really, really good. This, with a glass of red on a Saturday evening and I’m a very happy girl. I can’t say this recipe is particularly authentic, but as my veg patch is still producing endless courgettes, I’m still chopping them into everything! Serves 4. Ingredients 1 pack of… Continue reading Pasta Carbonara
