Monday, done! 🙌🏻 We just cooked up this super simple easy dinner. @leapwildsalmon which tastes SO good and totally different from regular supermarket salmon, broccoli 🥦and mashed sweet potatoes 🍠 top tip: Add some butter, salt, pepper and paprika to the mash and always keep the skins on for extra fibre 👌 - It’s now time to flick on the tv and chill out 😊 And yes, I’m getting some wear out of my Xmas PJs as I’ll be in the☀️ hopefully in December 🤞
Spinach and cayenne spaghetti!
Never a dull moment for pasta at Pasta Station!
Spaghetti works best with smooth sauces and simple oil based sauces.
Carbonara, and 'aglio, olio e peperoncino' are great examples.
In Italy Bolognese isn't served with spaghetti as it's chunky and chunky sauces work better with pasta that can grab the chunks!
Some vegan and gluten free homemade dishes. Doesn’t need to be hard, and in addition is not about substitutions. Is a simple thinking: fruits, vegetables, grains and nuts are the best way to be gluten free and also vegan.
This past Saturday I had the chance to share a Friendsgiving with an incredible group of people. We range in age from mid 20s to early 50s and come from very diverse backgrounds. We all have a different story yet somehow we all managed to find each other. It was a great night with a lot of great food and definitely something I will never forget.
And of course me being me, I couldn’t resists making a plethora of desserts. Mommy P’s cookies, apple streusel muffins, and the most delicious cherry pie. I’ll share that one in more detail later on this week. Enjoy!
Just dropped off the weeks boxes! (From my front yard 🤣) Running a small charity is a real journey. It’s one of the most rewarding things ever, knowing I can give a little back to those in need. But it’s also really really tough. It’s time consuming I put any spare time into it and it creates havoc at home! people close to me get frustrated and feel I should just concentrate on my career instead of this! But I know people out there need a helping hand - I don’t have much but what I can give I will continue to give. And a big thank you to all those who support My Yard and are helping establish a solid foundation for this charity to grow large enough to help those who need a hand in a time of crisis in an efficient and considerate way! #myyard#yourhealthyourpower#healthyfoodbank#cookfromscratch#helpeachothergrow#fareshareuk#mentalhealthawareness#healthyliving#harrow#watford

I finally cooked the fairytale pumpkin that’s been sitting on our kitchen table for a month. It was huge and we have soooo much delicious pumpkin now.
How-to in stories just in case you never cook your pumpkins. Works for other hard winter squash like butternut and spaghetti too.
Ps this spoon has teeth because it’s a grapefruit spoon which makes it perfect for scraping all the gooey insides out. 🥄 $2 for a whole lotta uses in the kitchen.
