One of few veg I can guarantee Mats will eat (he is 11), is broccoli.  Over enthusiastic about how much he may consume, I had enough leftover for a whole other family lockdown sitting.  Turning sadly pale in colour (the broccoli!) in the fridge, this was the answer, this time anyway.  And you probably will …

This is not the first time I have posted sushi on this blog.  So it is the same recipe but a reminder.  I served it with two salads because the children wouldn’t eat the fennel salad so a cucumber concoction accompanied us too. We compared Waitrose bought sushi with homemade. I noticed a difference in …

Pulled Pork and Coleslaw

This is easy and so delicious.  It can be served in a variety of ways but the most satisfying for us is in a bun.  Biting into it gives me almost as much pleasure as biting into my first mince pie with brandy butter on December 1st.  A knife and fork cannot be used as …

Scallops wrapped in bacon with spring onions, roasted red pepper, and smoked garlic

In Dumfriesshire during half term, we walked 3 miles from our hotel on the coast to a little fishing village called Port Patrick where we had lunch in a pub called The Crown excelling in seafood.  This recipe was inspired by that.  The pub was as traditional as they all used to be, but with …
