Makes 16-18 biscuits / Hands on time 20 mins / Total time 30 mins + cooling and icing / V
250g plain flour
80g ground almonds
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp all spice
¼ tsp sea salt flakes
2 tsp cocoa powder
½ tsp bicarbonate soda
1 tsp baking powder
Zest of half a lemon
200g honey
50g dark brown muscovado sugar
80g unsalted butter
110g icing sugar

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour with all the spices, cocoa powder, salt, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and the zest of half a lemon. Mix until the ingredients are well distributed.
2. In a small saucepan over a medium heat, melt the honey, butter and the dark muscovado sugar together. Once melted take off the heat and pour straight into the dry mixture. Mix with a wooden spoon until you have a wet dough. Leave to cool for a few minutes or until the dough is cool enough to handle. Preheat an oven to 180°C/160°C fan/350°F/gas mark 4.
3. The dough will still be warm but easy to work with. Using your hands pick up around 35g of dough (about the size of a walnut) roll into a ball and divide between 2 lined baking trays, spacing out evenly to allow room for the biscuits to expand. Using the back of table spoon, flatten each ball slightly into a disk shape (although they should spread out slightly naturally on their own).
4. Bake in the oven for 10-12 mins. Once expanded and golden in colour, remove from the oven and leave to cool on the trays for 5 mins before twisting each biscuit carefully with your fingers to loosen it and transferring to a wire rack. Leave to cool completely.
5. To ice, mix 110g of icing sugar with 1 and a half tbs of water until you have a thick but loose paste. Place a sheet of cling film under the wire rack to catch any drips. Spoon 1 tsp of icing over each biscuit and using the back of the spoon, push the icing to the edges using a circular motion (don’t worry if these drip, that’s the idea). Grate over the remaining lemon zest (optional) and leave to set before serving. Store in a tin lined with a baking sheet for up to a week.

Cheats puff pastry churros

Sam's Cheaty Churros
Sam’s Cheaty Churros

Okay so I was supposed to make Thai green curry but the curry I made turned into watery green slop so Jamie and I ate that – you can have churros.
Have you ever actually tried to make your own doughnuts? Of course you haven’t – that would be mental. So when my friend Sam said she was making churros for dessert, I simply assumed she was mentally ill. Turns out I’d misdiagnosed her. She’s was actually a beautiful genius armed with a packet of shop-bought puff pastry. I watched in bewilderment as she lazily cut, twisted and positioned the pastry onto a baking tray… That was it! No deep frying, no piping bags, nothing! Okay so maybe we can’t really call them churros but covered in melted butter and rolled in cinnamon sugar, they taste pretty darn close. So bang out a batch of these beauties for your next swanky soirée or eat them alone in bed watching extreme angler Jeremy Wade catch river monsters… What?

Cheats puff pastry churros
Makes 12-16 / Hands on time 30 mins / Total time 40 mins / V
160g ready rolled puff pastry
50g butter, melted
2 tbs caster sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Chocolate Sauce
100g Green & Black’s Organic 70% Dark Chocolate, broken into pieces
150g double cream
Pinch of sea salt

1. Preheat an oven to 200°C/180°C fan/400°F/gas mark 6. Line a couple of baking trays with baking paper and put to one side.
2. Roll out the pastry and cut into strips and then cut the strips in half. One at a time give them a twist and place evenly on the baking trays a finger apart.
3. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, melt the butter over a low heat in a small saucepan and transfer to a small bowl. In another small bowl, mix together the sugar and the cinnamon ready for dusting later.
5. Once the churros are golden brown, transfer to a couple of large plates. Brush them with melted butter and dust with plenty of cinnamon sugar.
6. To make the chocolate sauce heat the cream in a medium sized saucepan. Once simmering, take off the heat and leave to stand for a few minutes to cool slightly. Whisk in the chocolate pieces and a pinch of salt until you have a silky smooth chocolate sauce. Pour into a dipping bowl and serve.

Raw garlic & chilli spaghetti

Raw Garlic & Chilli Spaghetti
Raw Garlic & Chilli Spaghetti

Oh, I appear to have run out of both money and food. Came home last night and all that was left in my fridge was a couple of manky garlic cloves, a red chilli and half a packet of cheese –  literally everything else was mouldy. How long had I been gone?
Anyway, without enough money to buy a packet of Frazzles, I decided to make something out of it and the result was rather tasty. I’ve actually had garlic and chilli pasta before, although when Jamie made it, he included fresh spinach and black olives. As you know, I have no spinach and the only black olives I have are bobbing around a jar of what looks like pond scum. I really should clean out my fridge…
Anyway, I thought I’d give it a whirl and what do you know, I managed to make something edible and even blog worthy! Praise the Lord.

Raw garlic & chilli spaghetti
Serves 2 / Hands on time 10 mins / Total time 10 mins / V🌶
200g spaghetti (100g per person)
1 tsp fine table salt (for pasta water)
1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 medium sized, deseeded red chilli or 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
2 medium sized garlic cloves, crushed or grated
1/2 tsp sea salt flakes
Grated vegetarian Italian hard cheese or Parmesan* to serve

TIP: If you have any greens such as kale, spring greens, spinach or even chard, this makes a lovely addition to this recipe. Simply chop up a couple of large handfuls (no need to chop spinach) and add to the pasta 2 minutes before the pasta is cooked. Drain along with the pasta and stir through the garlic and chilli oil. Top with lashings of parmesan. Buon appetito!

1. You will need 2 medium sized pans for this recipe – one for the pasta and one for the oil (the oil pan needs to be big enough to accommodate the cooked pasta later).
2. Put the pasta in boiling salted water – use at least a 1 tsp of fine table salt (don’t waste your posh salt) and cook according to packet instructions.
3. In the second saucepan, heat the oil over a very low heat and add the garlic, fresh chilli (or chilli flakes) and 1/2 tsp of sea salt flakes. Gently heat the garlic and chilli in the oil but be careful to not colour it, you want to only gently infuse the oil. After 5 minutes, or if the garlic starts to brown, take off the heat and put to one side.
4. Once the pasta is cooked, drain the pasta and add to the pan containing the garlic and chilli oil. Give it a good toss until the spaghetti is well coated. Divide between bowls and finish topped with a generous serving of grated parmesan and a good crack of black pepper.

Rigatoni cheese with kale

Rigatoni Cheese with Kale

Rigatoni Cheese with Kale

I’m currently watching Newcastle play Sunderland in a rubbish pub I used to work in in Letchworth – bleak. So instead of gouging my own eyes out with my thumbs, I thought I’d take myself away on a rigatoni cheese dream.
I made this last week and it was very very naughty. Like most lactose-challenged people, I crave cheese more than crack addicts crave, well, crack? At least crack addicts don’t become bloated disgusting pigs every time they give into temptation. Or do they?…  I wish I was a crack addict. Pass the Rennie.

Rigatoni cheese with kale
Serves 4 / Hands on time  xx mins / Total time 40 mins / V
You’ll need: Deep casserole dish and a food processor (if making breadcrumbs)
250g rigatoni
25g unsalted butter
30g plain flour
1 large garlic clove, crushed
1 green chilli, deseeded and finely diced (optional)
300ml semi-skimmed milk
250g vegetarian cheddar or Gruyere* cheese
2 handfuls of kale
2 slices of bread blitzed into breadcrumbs (optional)

1. In a large saucepan, cook the rigatoni according to the packet instructions. Meanwhile, grate the cheese, putting a handful to one side for later. Strain the pasta, mix in a bit of olive oil to prevent it sticking and pour into a suitably sized baking dish.
2. If making breadcrumbs, add 2 slices of torn bread into a food processor and blitz to breadcrumbs. Put to one side.
3. In a medium non-stick saucepan, melt the butter over a medium heat and add the garlic and the chilli. Cook for a few minutes before whisking in the flour. Continue to cook for another minute whisking all the time. Add the milk in a quick stream And continue to whisk until the mixture is smooth and lump free. Carry on whisking and cook for a further few minutes until the sauce has thickened. Preheat a grill to a high heat.
4. Stir in the grated cheese bit by bit mixing all the time with a wooden spoon until the sauce is smooth and glossy. Season well with salt and pepper.
5. Mix in the kale and cook for 5 mins to allow the greens to soften slightly before pouring the cheese sauce over the rigatoni. Mix well and pour into an oven-proof dish. Top with the remaining grated cheese and breadcrumbs. Grill on a medium to high heat until the top is bubbling and golden. Serve with a simple green salad.

Chocolate Guinness cake

St Patrick's Day Chocolate Guinness Cake
St Patrick’s Day Chocolate Guinness Cake

Admittedly this is an odd choice for someone who doesn’t like chocolate or Guinness but I had to make something for St Patrick’s Day and didn’t fancy soda bread. However, this cake took me completely by surprise, it’s hands down, one of the best cakes I have ever made. It’s rich without being at all sickly, and chocolatey without being too sweet. Anyway, before I knew it I’d stuffed three big wedges into my face like a greedy little hamster. Classy. Then I washed my hair with it. Double classy.
That actually wasn’t a joke, Guinness makes an excellent hair mask. Simply wash your hair as normal and then massage half a can of Guinness into the roots. Leave for 3 minutes and rinse for a glossy Black Beauty mane… Or you could just drink it, whatever.

Chocolate Guinness cake
Serves 12 / Hands on time 40 mins / Total time 1hr 30 mins + cooling / V
You’ll need:
A standing mixer or electric whisk and a 9 inch cake tin
250ml Guinness
60g Green & Black’s organic cocoa powder
350g golden caster sugar
250g unsalted butter
150ml buttermilk
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
280g plain flour
2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Pinch of sea salt
Cream cheese frosting 
150g cream cheese
250g icing sugar
100ml double cream

1. Preheat an oven to 180°C/160°C fan/ 350°F/gas mark 4. Line a 9 inch tin with baking paper and grease the sides with butter.
2. Add the Guinness and the butter to a large saucepan over a medium heat until melted. This could take 5-10 minutes, so use this time to measure and prepare the rest of the ingredients. Once the butter has melted, give it a stir and take off the heat. Tip in the sugar along with the cocoa powder and beat until combined with a hand whisk.
3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, vanilla and the buttermilk together with a fork then whisk into the warm mixture using a hand whisk until the batter looks lovely and glossy.
4. Sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and the salt straight into the mixture. Whisk for a final time until combined (don’t worry if the mixture is a little lumpy, it’s more important to get the cake in the oven quickly to ensure a good rise).
5. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 45 mins. Leave to cool fully in the tin. Once cool, turn the cake out ready to ice.
6. To make the cream cheese frosting, whisk the cream cheese with a hand whisk until smooth before sieving in the icing sugar. Continue to whisk by hand until fully combined before adding the whipping cream. Switch to an electric whisk and whisk on a high speed until the cream has thickened and the frosting is thick and spreadable. Ice the cake generously and serve.

Leek & mushroom breton with chickpea mash

VALENTINES DAY: Leek & Mushroom Breton with Chickpea Mash
Leek & Mushroom Breton with Chickpea Mash
Leek & Mushroom Breton with Chickpea Mash

It’s Valentines Day tomorrow. Does anyone care? Thought not. I don’t have a problem with flowers, chocolates or even ugly bears with hearts sewn to their paws, but I do have a problem with couples who shell out on real gifts. There is just something inherently pushy about Valentines Day and the presumption that you would buy anything other than flowers and chocolates deeply offends me. I mean who does that? If Jamie bought me a fancy Jo Malone candle for Valentines Day I’d be very angry. That money could have gone towards a very affordable microwave!

Anyway, I did actually make Jamie a romantic dinner a few weeks back – because I’m nice like that. The velvety breton sauce is the key to this dish, it’s easy but takes about an hour to make. Once made though, the rest of the recipe is quick and simple. I tend to make the sauce the night before and pop it in the fridge until I’m ready to use it. Breton sauce is not traditionally vegetarian (being French) but I was determined to create a vegetarian dish that could stand up in a French restaurant. Oh and if you’re not keen on the idea of chickpea mash then normal mash will suffice. Bon appetite mon amie.

Leek and mushroom breton with chickpea mash
Serves 4 / Hands on time 50 mins / Total time 1 hour 40 minutes /
V ❄ 
You’ll need: Hand blender or food processor for the mash
1 carrot, peeled and roughly chopped
1 large onion, roughly chopped
1 celery rib, roughly chopped
85g unsalted butter
40g plain flour
1 litre vegetable stock, I use 2 knorr vegetable stock pots
2 large crushed garlic cloves
1 bay leaf
½ tsp black peppercorns
1 tsp vegetarian Worcestershire sauce*
100ml vegetarian red wine
2 tbs tomato purée
2 large leeks, sliced
2 carrots, peeled and thickly chopped
5 chestnut mushrooms, thickly chopped
Fresh parsley, finely chopped
Chickpea mash
3 cans of chick peas
3 large garlic cloves, crushed
½ an onion, chopped
Knob Butter

TIP: Substitute chickpea mash for regular mash if you prefer.

1. Melt the butter in a large heavy bottomed pot and add the roughly chopped onion, carrot, celery and a good pinch of salt. Cook on a low heat with the lid on for around 10 mins until soft.
2. Add the flour and stir into the carrot and onion mixture. Add the vegetable stock in a fast stream and whisk to eliminate any lumps.
3. Add the garlic, bay leaf, red wine, peppercorns, Worcestershire sauce, tomato purée and bring to the boil. Turn the heat down and simmer gently for 40 mins, mixing occasionally to remove any skin and to prevent sticking.
4. Sieve the sauce into a large bowl. The sauce will be thick so I use a spoon to press it down before leaving it for 10 mins. Disregard the pulp and either refrigerate the sauce and pour back into the pot. Bring to the boil.
5. To the sauce, add the chopped mushrooms, leeks and carrots and simmer for 15 mins.
6. Meanwhile make the mash in a large saucepan by adding half a chopped onion, crushed garlic and butter over a medium heat. Cook for 5-7 mins until soft, adding a dash of water if needed). Add the drained chickpeas and heat through before seasoning well with salt and pepper. Blitz in a food processor or use a hand blender until the chickpeas resemble a thick mash. Finish with a generous knob of butter and a good season of salt and pepper.
7. Finish by dividing the mash onto plates and top with the breton sauce vegetables. Serve sprinkled with chopped fresh parsley.

Jamie does Jamie’s baked cheesecake

Sweet baby Jesus. If I had to eat one food for the rest of my life, it may very well be this cheesecake. Not sure what possessed my boyfriend to bake a cheesecake in the first place but that doesn’t matter now. Brandishing Jamie Oliver’s recipe on his iPhone, he started digging around the cupboards for a 24cm springform cake tin.
“I don’t think we have one of them” I yelled from the living room watching Nancy and Whitney having a fight on Eastenders. Jamie emerges from the kitchen holding a 24cm springform cake tin.
“Huh, who knew we had one of those?” I said drawing my attention back to Eastenders. Hang on, Ryan’s back? I thought he was dead?..
Anyway after a million questions about vanilla essence, corn flour and caster sugar I went to work, expecting to return home to a kitchen full of smoke and tears. But no, I came home to this…

It was without a doubt, one of the best cheesecakes I’ve ever eaten. It had a beautiful creamy texture and the flavour was subtly citrusy. Well done Jamie Oliver and Jamie Green, you’ve both made me a very happy woman. 10/10.
Oh and Jamie would like it noted that “it’s the chef that makes the cheesecake not the recipe.” I have feeling he’s referring to himself as the chef in this instance, sorry Jamie Oliver.

Now, I know it’s the New Year and you’re all busy quaffing smoothies from your Nutribullets but let’s take a break and have some breakfast. Everyone knows breakfast is the best time of day to eat cheese… Probably.
Anyway, admittedly I’ve been on a health kick too – my wine paunch has alarmingly turned into a wine gut over the festive season. Something has to be done! Although, it’s the eighth of January and I’ve already grown tired of soup, oat cakes and those annoyingly small loaves of bread. IT’S TIME TO EAT SOME CHEESE! So fuck the diet, grab the sourdough and lets have a dippy egg and cheese party. Bran flakes can wait.

Potted Swiss cheese eggs
Serves 2 / Hands on time 15 mins / Total time 25 mins /
You’ll need:
4 ramekins
4 large eggs
1 heaped tsp unsalted butter
1 heaped tsp plain flour
70g vegetarian cheddar or Gruyere* cheese, finely grated
½ tsp Dijon mustard
100ml semi-skimmed milk
¼ tsp nutmeg
Handful fresh parsley, chopped
Toast and butter to serve (optional) 

1. Preheat an oven to 180°C/160°C fan/ 350°F/gas mark 4. Finely grate all the cheese and put to one side. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over a low heat and then whisk in the flour until the lumps are removed.
2. Leaving a small handful of cheese to one side for the topping, add the rest to the pan and whisk in the milk bit by bit. Add the mustard, nutmeg and season with salt and pepper. Once the cheese sauce is nice and smooth, take off the heat.
3. Crack an egg into each ramekin and divide the cheese sauce between each. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and top with chopped parsley and season.
4. Place on a baking tray and bake on the middle shelf for 12-14 mins or until the whites have set and the yolks are still soft – keep an eye on these or they can easily overcook.
5. Meanwhile, toast the bread and spread with butter. Remove the potted eggs from the oven (they will be very hot so be careful). Serve topped with chopped parsley and buttered toast.

Salted sultana & rum fudge

Salted Sultana & Rum Fudge
Salted Sultana & Rum Fudge

Oh I do love an edible gift don’t you? Not that I’ve ever received one (sigh) but I imagine it’s rather lovely. I tend to be the edible gift maker myself but don’t feel too sorry for me, being the maker has it’s perks. First of all, it’s the only way you can give someone a cheap gift without them them thinking you’re a tight – which you are. Secondly, it allows you to buy a nice new pair of trainers for yourself with the savings.
Now, I know Christmas already feels like a distant memory but edible gifts aren’t just for Christmas. You can of course be a cheapskate all year round.
“Are those new trainers?”
“Why yes, yes they are” you say.
“Oh and thank you so much for the fudge, what a thoughtful gift.”
“Oh not at all, I’m a very thoughtful person, glad you liked it” you say smugly looking down and admiring your new trainers. Mwah ha ha ha!
So Happy New Year to all, may your gifts be edible and your purse brimming with precious stones.

Salted sultana and rum fudge
Makes 1 slab / Hands on time 40 mins / Total time 40 mins + 2 hrs cooling / V Gf
You’ll need: Electric hand whisk, 1 large or 2 small deep baking trays, baking paper and ice
Rapeseed oil spray
120g sultanas
3 tbs dark rum
1 can condensed milk
2 tbs golden syrup
175ml whole milk
1 vanilla pod, seeds scraped out
1 tsp vanilla extract
800g granulated sugar
¼ tsp sea salt
250g unsalted butter

1. In a small bowl, soak the sultanas in the rum and put to one side.
2. Line a large baking tray with baking paper and spray with oil.
3. Set a small bowl of iced water near the stove, you’ll need it later.
4. In a large heavy bottomed pan over a low heat, add the butter, milk, sugar, condensed milk and golden syrup. Bring to the boil stirring continuously.
5. Once boiling, continue to stir until the toffee goes a golden colour – this will take between 12-15 mins. To test it’s ready to whisk, drop a small amount of mixture into the iced water – if it solidifies it is ready (you should be able to pick it out with our fingers).
6. Take off the heat, add the vanilla and whisk with an electric whisk for 5 mins – it’s the whisking that turns toffee into fudge.
7. Once the fudge has the consistency of loose peanut butter, fold in the soaked sultanas, rum and salt. Pour into the lined tray and set in the fridge for a maximum of 2 hrs – the fudge will become too hard if left for longer.
8. Cut into squares and store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 4 weeks.

Summer salsa bites


Okay so not very Portuguese but I made these on holiday in Portugal – as you may have guessed, I don’t have a pool in my Camden flat… Or any sun for that matter. Anyway, I seem to only ever make this salsa in Portugal, partly because my best friends Philippa insists on it, and partly because it’s lovely and refreshing. So between drinking buckets of cheap local wine and pushing each other in the pool, not only did I remember the recipe for these little blighters but I managed to make them too…. Twice in fact – Philippa can be very demanding. Now, I know it’s not the weather for summer salsa but guess what, it wasn’t all that sunny in Portugal and we still ate it, so you can too. It’s really easy but a bit time consuming. You need to let the salsa cook down and then you need to chill it. Best to make it on a lazy Sunday when you have time, it’s worth the effort though – even if you do gobble them all up in under 5 minutes like we did.

Summer salsa bites
Makes 400ml / Hands on time 10-15 mins / Total time 1 hr 30 mins + chilling /
12 tomatoes, de-seeded and diced
½ red chilli, de-seeded and diced
1 large garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
1 red or yellow pepper, de-seeded and diced
1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp sea salt flakes
Black pepper
Melba toast to serve (optional)
Vegetarian feta to garnish (optional)

1. De-seed the tomatoes and finely chop along with the peppers and the red chilli. Add to a medium sized saucepan along with the garlic, salt, extra virgin olive oil and a good crack of pepper.
2. Give it a good mix, cover and cook on a low heat for 1hr. Once cooked, pour through a colander to drain off any excess liquid and leave to cool.
3. Once at room temperature, refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours. Serve cold on Melba toast and topped with crumbled feta. Keep refrigerated and use within 5 days.
