Easy spelt honey & herb loaf

Easy spelt honey & herb ciabatta

Step by step I'm trying out new techniques and ways of making different kinds of bread. One weekend I was really craving some bruschetta but I didn't have any ciabatta or baguettes in the house so I decided to look at some recipes and try to make my own spelt loaf. It's not quite the same as ciabatta as there are no holes in this bread, but I'll be…

Basil & chives potato waffles with chorizo, mascarpone and butter-honey sauce

Basil & chives potato waffles with chorizo, mascarpone and butter-honey sauce

A delicious Belgian waffle with whipped cream, fresh fruit and powdered sugar: oh isn't that a treat? It's no wonder Belgium is known around the world for their waffles. But even though they are usually considered to be a sweat treat, you can get very creative with these waffles, which is exactly what I decided to do. Even though I had never eaten them myself, I decided to give this Belgian…

Roasted herby swedes with a terragon & honey mustard dressing, baby potato salad and prosciutto wrapped pork tenderloin

Roasted herby turnips with a terragon & honey mustard dressing and prosciutto wrapped pork tenderloin

I used to think Autumn and Winter were boring food months but ever since I started focussing more on eating seasonal foods I've discovered so many ingredients that I never used before in my cooking because they are vegetables you rarely hear or see about. One of those forgotten vegetables for me were swedes. Now mind you, in some Irish shops they are called turnips (even though they technically aren't)…

Kerrygold Halloween cupcakes with pumpkin spices, buttercream and sugar ghosts

The countdown to the scariest night of year is on: Halloween is rapidly approaching! Did you know tht Halloween has an Irish origin? The Celtic festival Samhain was celebrated on the night of the 31st of October in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man 2000 years ago. It’s still a hugely celebrated event here in Ireland, with decorated houses everywhere, kids going off to trick-or-treat and lots of fireworks…

Creamy Broccoli & Leek soup

Broccoli & leek soup with goat cheese

I have definitely been under the weather these last couple of days, but I managed to drag myself out of bed long enough to make a lovely belly-warming soup for myself to get me through the day. I never used to make my own soups at all but I’ve really gotten into it this last year with soups like butternut squash & carrot, spicy tomato soup, cauliflower soup and before…

Sweet potato croquettes

Sweet potato croquettes

Confession time: I love croquettes, oh my god do I love them! Every time I go to a restaurant and it's an option as a side instead of fries I'll order it, guaranteed. The crunchy outside and the soft mashy inside are just such a joy to eat! Unfortunately for me croquettes are a lot more popular in Belgium/France/The Netherlands than they are here in Ireland and the UK but…

Light & crispy Belgian waffles

Light & crispy Belgian waffles

If you've ever been in Belgium, there will surely be one thing you must have noticed: their love of good food! Being Belgian myself I grew up with the best fries, waffles and chocolates to name a few, but I must admit I had never attempted to make waffles myself, never even had a waffle iron/maker! But I finally got one and I just couldn't wait to make my very…
