Why don’t I use my slow cooker more often? I go through phases where I basically forget it exists, but then when I finally remember to use it, I realise how handy it is! Just a few minutes of effort for a healthy, hearty dinner. This jalapeño and white bean soup was amazing – it’s spicy, smoky, creamy, cheesy, all the things you want in a soup.

I do actually have a lovely tagine, but I know not everybody does - not everyone has space in their kitchen for a piece of cookware that's dedicated to one particular dish (to be honest, I don't either, … Read more
Eden loves hummus. She's not quite 8 months old, so the fact that it's a texture that she can easily lick off a spoon is probably most of the reason, but she will quite happily munch her way through a huge dollop of the stuff.
