Introduction

I have, probably not unlike you, a stack of beautiful, interesting and inspiring cookbooks in my kitchen. I love getting a new cookbook, reading through it and marking the pages of the recipes I want to try, unfortunately that’s usually as far as I get.  I have all the enthusiasm and excitement to try a…

Recipe #12: Spanakopita & Greek Potatoes

Oops I am a day late, again! But in my defence I did have my Diploma course this weekend and so have been pretty tired and busy. Talking about being tired, I am always exhausted, so much so that I am sick of hearing myself talk about it, but I eat healthy, drink loads of…

Recipe #:11 Grilled Halloumi Salad

  Hello lovely people, I have noticed my followers are slowly but surely going up, up, up! Amazing, I know it’s still only a very small blog but when I started writing this I honestly did not think anyone would bloody read it! So, the fact that people from all over the world are actually…

Recipe #10: Japanese Fried Rice AKA Bokkeumbap

I had a whole week off this week and let me tell you, one week is not enough! I have finished my job and will be starting a new one on Monday. I had big plans, lots of stuff to get sorted and organised, did I get it done? Did I fuck. I started watching…

Recipe #9: Farmhouse Pasta Bake

I love cooking for friends, and having a house full of happy full bellies and laughter. I used to get pretty stressed about having to cook something unusual or fancy to impress when people came over to eat. But over the years I have realised people really don’t mind what you serve them, they are…

Recipe #8: Mexican Beanie Tostadas

What a week! I have been so busy I haven’t had the time to write a thing! I am starting to feel a bit overwhelmed with the thought of writing a post every week for a year, but this does seem to be a theme with me that I start things and never finish them,…

Recipe #7: Middle Eastern Risotto

This week was Valentine’s Day so I cooked myself and Jack a three course feast! I have had a bit of a tough time recently and Jack has been so supportive and loving, it has made me appreciate him all the more and so I really wanted to show him just how much I love…

Recipe #6: Two Ingredient Pancakes

I almost feel like this recipe is so simple that it shouldn’t count as one of my 52 recipes, but it is so good I need to share it with you! Its simplicity is what makes it so good and that it only needs two ingredients. It started with me feel horrendously hungover, yes again,…

Recipe #4: Cauli-Pizza & Chips

Quick Update: I have created a Willow’s Kitchen Instagram! Please follow me, my username is: willows_kitchen   I’m not one to go in for ‘fad’ foods, I never jumped on the flax seed train or stuck chia in all my puddings, and I bought a spiralizer but used it once. But the new cauliflower craze that…

Recipe #3: Sticky Green Beans & Chilli Paneer

I love cooking for friends, food is such a powerful thing for me, it can be used in all situations; to celebrate, to relax, to show love, to commiserate, to socialise. It is so versatile, in the summer we have BBQ’s in the garden with an open fire, or take a picnic to the river….

Recipe #2: Smoky White Bean Quesadillas

Sorry for the delay in posting, we have had some internet issues (BT are complete and utter idiots..) So let me start by saying HOW have quesadillas not been in a thing in my life before today!? They are amazing! And after much debating between me and jack I can confirm the correct way to…

Recipe #1: Fennel & Coconut Tart

I spent the first day of the new year pretty much the same way as I do every year; throwing up and crying because I felt so utterly horrendous. I am pretty sure that the throwing up was due to the copious amounts of alcohol that I consumed the night before, and not because of the fennel…
