Hello and Welcome!

Hello and welcome to my blog.

This is my very first one, so bear with me and enjoy reading about my adventures cooking all of the recipes from Nigella Lawson's new book 'Kitchen'.

From time-to-time I may post about things other than cooking, after all, Nigella does sell a lifestyle that most women would like have a slice of, so I would like to share a bit of mine - not quite as glamorous but fun none-the-less (may I add that most of my ideas and thoughts revolve around food anyway)!

Just to set the scene a little, I am based in Yorkshire, live with my husband and gorgeous toddler who is rapidly approaching his second year. I work in the events industry and love music, books, fashion, culture and of course... food.

Chicken Tarragon and a whole lotta colour

Ta-Dah - last night we had posh chicken and chips! I went against the grain and instead of serving the meat with new potatoes n' green beans, went for the good old oven chip and asparagus just because I love it (and it is on spesh at Co-op)! The chicken was great and really easy to do. Just fry on one side for 5 minutes, turn over, add vermouth, 'erbs and cream and let bubble away on a low heat ferrociously until done. Nice and easy so just the way I like it.

I was going to post a photo that I had taken on my iphone of the beautiful tree outside our bedroom which is more and more stunning throughout the autumn months, until the leaves fall off onto our car and then it becomes annoying! I did take the photo but it doesn't do the tree any justice. Would love a really great camera. The colours that autumn bring are just divine - a gazillion shades of red, green, yellow, orange and brown. The only time of the year that we can truly have a go at rivalling India in the colourful stakes... Oh what the heck, here is the picture anyway.

Not sure about what to cook tonight. Might do pasta or meat with gnocchi but to be honest, am quite full after a lunch meeting in town (of a not-at-all-nice omlette with really fatty pancetta). I am sure I can find some space in that ever expanding belly of mine later on in this fine day.

  1. I must get my husband to subscribe to your blog. Maybe he'll start cooking again? I could do with some homecooked meals (and I mean not prepared by myself).
