Butternut squash and feta frittata

Butternut squash and feta frittata

This tasty little vegetarian number makes a fairly regular appearance on our week night dinner menus. It’s a really quick and easy one pan wonder. It’s not limited to dinner time either, this is a great dish for brunch or lunch too. And it’s not […]

Labneh

Labneh

Labneh is a Middle Eastern cream cheese made from strained yoghurt. It’s a little softer and slightly less sticky than standard cream cheese and has a delicious fresh tart flavour. It’s also incredibly easy to make and only requires a couple of ingredients. I like […]

Slutty super food bake

Slutty super food bake

I find that with all this January healthy eating lark it’s a lot easier to take things steadily, rather than going cold turkey after all that, well, turkey. Yes, we’re all in need of a little more nourishment and a little less indulgence but it’s […]

Date and tamarind ketchup

Date and tamarind ketchup

I bet you’ve still got a few remnants of festive food hanging around, I know I have, January’s healthy intentions may have to wait a few more days! At least I’ve got a way of using up those Christmas dates. I quite like dried fruit […]

Warm winter salad

Warm winter salad

I really do love my veggies but when the chilly weather arrives I’m less keen on the idea of tucking into a fridge-cold refreshing salad. I always want something that feels a bit more hearty and nourishing. This vegetarian delight certainly ticks those boxes. The […]

Welsh rarebit scones

Welsh rarebit scones

How tempting do these beauties look?! I think you’d have to have some seriously impressive will power to turn them down, especially toasted with a generous smear of butter melting into them. I might have to put writing this post on pause whilst I go […]

Locro de papas

Locro de papas

Obviously Mr Colonial Cravings and I take any and every opportunity to travel somewhere new so we didn’t really take the most direct route back from Maryland to Gloucestershire. Nope. We went via Ecuador. I’ve wanted to visit the Galapagos islands since I was very […]
