Leftover Roast Lamb Stew

I really like leftover lamb as it has loads of flavour and can be turned into anything like a shepherd’s pie right through to a spicy curry. This one was nice and easy and we had a dinner and another one is in the freezer. I really like to add marmite to dark stews in…

Broccoli and Butter Bean Bake with a Black Pudding Crumb

Sometimes a one pot hits the spot! You can make this vegetarian by not using the black pudding. I’m a Devonshire girl we usually go for hogs pudding but I also love black pudding too and to be fair as we mastered the hogs pudding we found it easy to make the black pudding. Hogs…

This is perfect for this cooler weather we have been having. I think the peppers and beans lighten it up a bit rather than root vegetables. I also love a one pot dinner mid-week as it makes life and washing up so much easier. You can use any flavoured sausage and the cooking chorizo really…
