These eggs, in little bread parcels, have been a particular favourite with my nephews, two active young boys who would rather be outside than stopping for a meal.

These custards have a delicate flavour, with the texture of an English baked custard (dairy). They are very simple of make […]

Eat seasonally with this quiche full of fresh green vegetables. Choose your favourite spring vegetables for this quiche. I have included asparagus, one of the star vegetables of spring, peppery watercress and green beans. For a Fodmap diet courgette is a good substitute for the asparagus. You can use a regular shortcrust pastry; or, alternatively, […]

Muffins but not as you know them! Rather, a new take on poached or fried egg and bacon. This recipe is based on the idea of baked eggs that, when cooked in muffin tins or small soufflé dishes, appear like muffins, in shape at least. They can be prepared in advance and require no watchful […]
