INDIGO HERBS REVIEW AND EXCLUSIVE RECIPES

As you are probably well aware by now I live in the middle of bumfluff nowhere. A worn down town that lived its hay days during the height of the slipper industry. That being said it means I am surrounded by beautiful countryside, countless reservoirs and open fells. It is pretty easy to lead a healthy lifestyle here. We always walk to do our Tesco shop, which is six miles. There are amazing places to go bike riding along with stunning walks. Having all those joys does not come without…

I mean you do not learn out of nowhere, and following recipes allow you to learn more skills and give you a better understanding of food pairings. Leeks are a vegetable that I rarely use in my cooking. I adore leek and potato soup, however that is as far as my leek usage goes. So when I got chatting to British Leeks…

I am a huge lover of fish and try to incorporate it into my diet as much as possible. Whenever I go out for dinner it will always be my dish of choice.

I thought it was time for a another fish dish. However this time I wanted to spice things up a bit, make the…

ALMOND BUTTER BANANA CAKE RECIPE

The one great thing about going away for a few days is that you come back to banana perfect for baking with. Those lovely overripe squidgy bananas, that I get to whisk them into a nice comforting Wintery bake. Recently I was offered to choose a box of products from TheFoodMarket.com. An online marketplace for natural and organic food that is made and sold by small, independent merchants. Within this box I received a lovely tub of Pip and Nut Almond butter. Nut butters are my fave. So what better…

Thats probably why I enjoyed it more as it has literally been months since I ate a good frittata. As I said I didnt have much…

This got me thinking about this whole mug cake faze. If you could whip up a mug cake in the microwave, and banana oats in the microwave. Then maybe if…
