Cauliflower and Blue Cheese Loaf

Cauliflower and Blue Cheese Loaf is a lower-carb take on my popular Cauliflower Cheese Cake. Although smaller in size, this mini version holds oodles of flavour. Think highly-umami blue cheese crumbles, nutty almond flour and sweetly-fruity pink peppercorns. Enjoy a thick slice – or two – for dinner with plenty of vegetable sides, and perhaps a homemade apple sauce. It is lovely both hot and cold. Continue reading

cardamom bun cake, sliced on board, with vintage knife

For a cake at least. Continue reading

refried black bean and halloumi tacos

This is a sponsored post.

Refried Black Bean and Halloumi Tacos are my tweaked version of the Hello Fresh one. Both are full of fibre, flavour and make a terrific family dinner.

Who doesn’t love tacos? When I was a teenager I liked the crunchy kind, not minding that they would inevitably fall apart and tumble into my lap. But, since my coordination has not improved with age, a less bothersome soft taco suits me better.

I have a few Mexico-inspired recipes here on the blog. But, to be honest, since Rachel moved to Chicago, we have not had – nor made – tacos in ages. Which is a shame. Especially seeing that she and her boyfriend Dan, like the good millennials that they are, seem to have tacos every Tuesday. So I was happy when premium recipe box delivery company Hello Fresh asked me to make and review one of their recipes. Continue reading
