Loaded Hummus with Ground Lamb, Eggplant and Pomegranate

Who says you can’t have dip for dinner? Hummus is so simple to make at home with kitchen staples that I have to be really lazy to not make it myself. Topped with spiced lamb, eggplant and pomegranate, this is a sophisticated meal for a few or an impressive appetiser for more.

(Festive) Italian Sausage and Vegetable Traybake

This is a recipe I literally threw together after a hectic week. It really is more of an exercise in artless arrangement than it is actual cooking.

Perfect for a fuss-free festive flourish for your weeknight supper when you really don’t feel like cooking.

Hot Cross Buns

These are a real baker’s delight! Sweet, spicy and easy to make – a stand mixer really helps – but be patient. Create a warm environment and time for the dough to rise, twice, and I’m sure you’ll experience success with this recipe.

Sourdough Crumpets

These light and airy crumpets are a great way to use up excess discarded and unfed sourdough starter. If you can fry a pancake, you can quickly whip up a huge batch of these!
