Cauliflower Cheese

This recipe is one of our favourites. I won’t pretend it is quick or even remotely ‘one pot cooking‘, but as my son says, “It’s worth it!” It’s easily made vegetarian by leaving out the bacon/pancetta and using a vegetarian cheese, and it absolutely tastes just as good this way.

Brunch is one of my favourite meals, and brings to mind lazy Sundays and long summer afternoons.

However we eat Read More…

Pear, Pecan and Spinach Salad with Damson Vinaigrette

The Heart of the Home

I love kitchens of all descriptions, but particularly when they are cosy and cleverly designed. Our friends Joe and her husband Phil Horton live in a house in the Midlands in England and their kitchen is just gorgeous.
