A Cornish girl's food adventures

Comfort food round-up

Hey everyone! I’m sorry that there wasn’t a post last week but I was swanning around Sicily and Malta indulging in all kinds of Mediterranean deliciousness. It turns out there is no limit to the amount aubergine pasta I can eat!
Anyway, we’ve returned to the UK and somehow it has become winter whilst we were away. The weather is cold and grey and generally pretty miserable. I am not impressed by it. So I thought this week I would do a round-up of some of my favourite recipes for comfort food to chase away the winter-blues.


First up we have a deliciously hearty sweet potato and miso soup, perfect for a warming lunch or cosy supper. I like to make a big batch of this on a Sunday and then it lasts me through the week.


Next up is one of my absolute favourite veggie main courses, ideal for serving as a Sunday lunch, squash and sage galettes. The flavours are wonderfully Autumnal and I’m a sucker for a buttery pastry crust.


For a rich and luxurious dinner you could do a lot worse than this souffle seafood pie.


If you’re in the mood for a lazy and indulgent breakfast then I can highly recommend starting your day with a chocolate chili cinnamon roll and steaming hot cup of coffee.


For afternoon treats why not opt for tangy, cheesy Welsh rarebit scones or for a sweet treat a bite or two of chai millionaires shortbread.

And obviously chilly evenings mean cosy puds and this butterscotch apple cake fits the bill perfectly!
So snuggle-up and stay warm with plenty of delicious food.
