Random Food I Have Eaten Recently

Egg noodles, beef strips and vegetables

There have been numerous times recently, in fact there are many weeks, where I either eat food from a generic chain that is not really worth doing a whole post on or my partner happens to have cooked the majority/all of the dish and therefore I cannot provide an accurate recipe. However, I love talking […]

Puff Pastry Pizza

Puff pastry, tomato, mushroom, olive and cheese pizza

Pizza is up there as one of the foods of the gods, nearly up there with mac n cheese but not quite, but sometimes I find that store purchased or takeaway pizza leaves me feeling a little deflated and heavy stomached.

The liking of chowder is something that I can perfectly understand as it is a very […]

Chicken And Sweetcorn Risotto

A fancier chicken and sweetcorn risotto compared to the past
