Prasorizo (Greek rice with leeks)

Prasorizo greek rice leeks 4.jpg

It’s taken me so long to learn the name of this Greek side dish. I made it weeks ago and ever since, I’ve had to look up the name of it every time I think about it. It bugs me so much when I can’t remember something. Buuut the name has finally stuck – prasorizo!…

50 ridiculously quick vegetarian dinners (20 minutes or less!)

I am lazy – super, super lazy. I absolutely love cooking, but most of the time you won’t find me in the kitchen for more than an hour at the time (and that’s only on special days). I think I just like sitting down too much. Sooo, over the years I’ve come up with loads…

Pomegranate and goat’s cheese pasta

This pomegranate and goat’s cheese pasta recipe demonstrates my need for the occasional bit of luxury. Sometimes I just need to treat myself. I try to be ridiculously frugal 95% of the time. I can’t remember the last time I bought a new pair of shoes (actually that’s a lie, I can. It was back in February…

Blueberry shortbread bars

Why don’t I bake more often?! These blueberry shortbread bars were incredible. And so, so, so easy! I actually only made them because I had some blueberries left over from my summer fruit tarts. I wanted to make a sweet treat with them, but since my baking skills are usually not anything to write home…
