I can’t even remember where I came across this twist on the classic tomato soup recipe, but I remember seeing it and instantly attracted to the unusual idea of a tomato soup with feta, avocado.
Tomato soup is always great for winter time and the added head of the chilli makes it even more suited to these cold months! Served alongside some cheese tortilla chips and drizzled with an amazing yoghurt, mint and chilli sauce it’s quite possibly one the tastiest soups I’ve ever made and one I definitely recommend trying.

Possibly one of the most perfect dinners to come home to in Winter and one of my personal favourites at the moment is to make the recipe for sausage casserole. It’s super quick to make and require minimum effort, it also uses ingredients that you’re likely to have in your cupboards.
The recipe for sausage casserole only contains a few ingredients, all you need is:
some of your favourite sausages (4-5 will do)
Chopped onion (1 large or 2 small)
1 tin of baked beans
Stock cube (vegetable of chicken)
Carrots (2, peeled and diced)
Potatoes for the topping (sliced)
Cheese + bread crumbs for the topping
To make the sausage casserole all you need to do is to lightly fry the onion, and carrots in a little oil. Add the sausages and brown. Once the sausages are done cut them up into bite size pieces.
Add a little water to the pan and the stock cube and allow to simmer for a couple of minutes. Add in the beans and put the pan on and leave to simmer.
Heat the oven up to gas mark 6 and put your sliced potatoes in some boiling water for about 5-8 minutes so they are al dente.
Empty the sausage and bean mix into a casserole dish and lay the potatoes on top. Add the bread crumbs and grate some cheese on top and place in the oven for around 25- 30 minutes. Done!
I’m having some friends round this weekend for a couple of celebratory drinks. My boyfriend has just landed a job he’s been after for a while so we thought we’d throw a special evening with some fizzy bubbles and fancy canapés to celebrate his new job and the end of a hard working week.
To mark this special occasion I decided to treat myself to some special ingredients to help mark it out as a real night to remember. Now I’m not too familiar with making canapes, more serving them, but after some thought and research into canapé recipes I couldn’t help but be drawn to the classic – caviar blinis. This version of the classic served with sour cream looks perfect.
So after purchasing said caviar, I’ve also decided to try out a modern twist on the classic, this caviar and chip canape. I love the contrast of the dark caviar with the yellow of the crispy chips!
These miniature Yorkshire puddings, similar to these I made a couple of months ago also look like they would go down a treat.
