A Mexican Breakfast.

A Mexican Breakfast.

Posted in Recipes on May 11th, 2015

I love breakfast. I normally go to sleep planning what I’m going to make when I wake up. However, I’ve fallen victim to routine and lost creativity with my morning meals. So I’m mixing things up and exploring alternative breakfasts to reignite excitement to the start of the day, starting with a traditional Mexican Breakfast. Migas literally translates as ‘crumbs’ , the name comes from the use of leftover breads and tortillas. This dish combines eggs, tomatoes, chilli and tortilla chips. It may sound like an odd combination for breakfast but it blew my mind. I can’t recommend it more. Credit to the brilliant Isabel Hood for this recipe. The […]

Bzz..bzz.. My first experience of eating honey made by Ann-Marie Eve, came only hours after being stung in five places by the bees who made it. It may sound odd, but I felt closer to the bees and the honey tasted just as sweet. Ann-Marie moved out of London to her cottage in Bray six years ago and has been producing honey from wooden hives at the end of her garden ever since. After being visited by Alain Roux, her 20 hives now supply The Waterside Inn with honey for it’s best dishes. Not bad for a self-taught beekeeper who learnt through reading books, eh? Ann-Marie has handpicked a few […]

Flapjack, 3 ways.

Flapjack, 3 ways.

Posted in Recipes on March 19th, 2015

I taught myself to bake when I was younger from a book called ‘Easy Peasy- Real cooking for kids who want to eat’. Yes, I was a real kid and I wanted to eat. Lots. The book was my bible, teaching things from ‘Whatever you like muffins’, to ‘Get Stuffed Peppers’ and ‘Rise Again Bread’ plus personal favourite ‘How Not to poison yourself, your family or your friends’. The one thing I made time and time again was flapjacks. They’re so easy and people always loved them. I know they may seem a little childish now, but there’s no denying the brilliance of a flapjack. They’re not as heavy as […]
