Taking a break

Hello all,

You may have noticed that I've not updated this food blog in some time now! I should probably explain why...

During 2013 I was pregnant with our first child, and unfortunately I struggled to actually think about, let alone write about, food or cooking. This wasn't great for someone writing a food blog.

Since then, I've been busy looking after our family and working. I'm not saying that the blog is over for good, but it's definitely on a hiatus.

I hope you enjoy the site, and I'm sorry for the lack of new recipes.

Chorizo and Chickpea Summer Stew

So I know the word 'stew' is not something you would usually associate with summer, but bear with me. Normally I would use the excuse reasoning that we don't get much of a summer so really nothing is off limits food wise! This year; not true. For the last two weeks we have been basking in glorious sunshine and above average temperatures; finally truly understanding what a Summer should be like.

Pancetta, Spinach and Mushroom White Pizza

Mr E and I hardly ever go out for dinner, and when we do it's usually on vouchers. There's a certain well known supermarket in the UK that issues reward points for shopping with them, and you can exchange these for vouchers for various treats such as a meal at a restaurant, hotel stays or days out. We almost always exchange them for restaurant vouchers, and that's pretty much the only time we eat out! I was about to say apart from birthdays... but I'm pretty sure we used vouchers for my birthday last year too!

I'm Still Here... and I have a Secret!

I'm really sorry that I haven't been blogging for the last few months. Between trying to balance work, personal life, holidays, extreme fatigue, nausea and bizarre food aversions (please don't talk to me about chicken) I will admit that writing about food did not feature very highly on my to do list...

... if the penny still hasn't dropped, let me explain- I'm going to be a mummy! Baby Ellwood is due to join us on October 17th 2013.


So I hope you will forgive me for the silence, but now that I'm well into my 2nd trimester and feeling a bit more human I will be back sharing recipes again- just maybe not quite as often as I did before!

Any special requests?!

No Bake Nutella Cheesecake

I'm sorry for the long, unexpected silence- Mr E and I are having car issues at the moment, having killed our own and then, most unfortunately, somehow passing on that misfortune to my Sister in Law when she came to our rescue! I'm so grateful to my brave colleague who, with no concern for his own car, has kindly been giving me lifts to and from work. Never have I been so aware of how much we use our car until it became unusable- I don't think I'd realised before how much of the planning in a day is so easily dealt with by having a car to hop into at any given moment!
