Remember when you were on that fantastic holiday and you promised yourself that you would keep on eating just as you have been for the last 2 weeks?  Well, if you’re anything like us then that promise to yourself is quickly forgotten as you land back home and raid the cupboard for familiar treats and [...]

Spaghetti Bolognese

By | August 26th, 2014|Dinner, Sauces and Marinades|

A truly classic dish that brought back a lot of fantastic childhood memories for Mr M when we made it.  Adapted from trying out different recipes and finally, we think, we’ve cracked it.

With the warmer days and longer evenings who wants to be stuck over a hot stove cooking all day? Not us that’s for sure so we wheeled out the cookery books (or in our case the vast folders of recipe magazine cut-outs that go back over 20 years!) and we came across several recipes for [...]
