Oeufs Epicées (spicy eggs to me and you)

Oeufs Epicées (spicy eggs to me and you)

It’s no secret that I love an egg, and a spicy one at that so I thought I’d share this latest HOT addition to my recipe scrap book! I cannot claim this recipe as my own, it was made for me by my friend Jim at his lovely holiday home (its the only reason I am...

How to make granola

If you frequent this site, you will know that I LOVE breakfast. Weekend breakfast is an official thing at our house. But having a delicious good breakfast on only a Saturday or a Sunday doesn’t satisfy my obsession. Unfortunately going to work, running our house and looking after a large dog alone during the week...
Huevos Picantes

Huevos Picantes

This lovely dish (spicy eggs) is a firm favourite Sunday breakfast in our house. I’m not sure if it’s because it has chorizo in it, or if it’s because it legitimately allows us to have guacamole before lunchtime. Maybe it’s just down to the cheese (God I love cheese). Anyway, its easy and quick-ish to...
Perfecting the Art of Breakfast

Perfecting the Art of Breakfast

I haven’t always enjoyed breakfast. In fact in my late teens I actively avoided it. I mean why bother getting up for a bowl of sloppy grey cereal when I could spend at least another 15 minutes in bed? Over a decade later I’m proud to announce I finally get it. Breakfast has become a...
THIS IS THE BEST AND MOST SIMPLE SOUP EVER

THIS IS THE BEST AND MOST SIMPLE SOUP EVER

It is! To make the most simple, delicious, creamy, restaurant-quality, perfect-for-autumn soup, all you need is: One pear, one fennel bulb, one onion, one garlic clove, 600 ml of vegetable stock. And some olive oil (not pictured) I can’t express enough how EASY and BEAUTIFUL this soup is. The full recipe is below, but basically...
The vegan challenge month

The vegan challenge month

For a girl who used to quite happily down a pint of milk, regularly extol the virtues of poached eggs and consider cold frankfurters to be the best snack in the world, a month of self-enforced veganism for non-ethical reasons might seem like a baffling choice to make. However, my vegan April consisted of the...
The perks of being a juicer

The perks of being a juicer

If you’d asked me what my favourite Christmas present was about 20 years ago, I reckon my Slyvanian Families gypsy caravan would have been a strong contender. However, now I’m older and bestowed with far more sophisticated and domesticated tastes I can quite confidently state that the best Christmas present I have received since the...
Currently coveting...salted chocolate (and Easter Eggs)

Currently coveting…salted chocolate (and Easter Eggs)

It’s Easter Sunday this weekend!! Whoop. And what better way to whet the tastebuds than celebrating one of our favourite gastronomical partnerships – chocolate and salt. One Tuesday evening a few months ago we had a Collective Individualism blog evening round my house. I cooked and Sarah brought dessert – aka The Chocolate That Changed...

Sri Lanka – #holidayofalifetime

There are worse ways to begin a fresh and new year than a trip to Sri Lanka. Trudging to work with the mass of Christmas come-down commuters in a grey London town, despairingly gazing at your calendar willing an end to January (already), writing Christmas thank you letters, trying to part company with the Xmas...
Meat Liquor

Meat Liquor

It took us a while, but we eventually made it to Meat Liquor. After resisting the hype for this long, we finally headed over to taste what had been described ‘the best burgers in London’. We’d heard that you can end up waiting up to an hour just to be seated so obviously we decided...
