Week 86: Naan Pizza

A really quick recipe, but I don’t know how I’ve managed without a it all my life.  I like pizza, my favourites are from pizza express, but buying ones to cook at home are a bit hit and miss, and I’ve always shied away from making my own… Until now!

Week 85: Chicken with Katsu Sauce

Week 83: Egg Stuffed Tomatoes

I genuinely love the book, right from the moment I first found it in TK Maxx in 2012. It’s so well presented, and inventive, and all the dishes look delicious. Other than an unsuccessful batch of scones I’ve never actually cooked anything, until now.

Week 82: Corned Beef & Onion Pie

I have been threatening to make a pie for years, long before I started teaching myself to cook on this blog.  Not counting that quiche or the flan I threw together last year – or my world famous indestructible mince pies – this is my first ever proper pie.  My pie-ginity.
