I’ll admit right off the bat – there’s nothing groundbreaking about this recipe. These refried bean enchiladas are super simple, stuffed with veggies and beans, and topped with a spicy jalapeño cheese sauce. All pretty straightforward – they’re not anything particularly novel, they don’t use any trendy ingredients, and they’re not prepared in an unusual way.

As far as I can tell, there's not really just one correct recipe. Goulash has spread far and wide across Europe, and … Read more

This time, I made a super simple herby risotto with basil and spinach - and rather than serving it in a bowl on its own (or, the more … Read more
Happy February! The first of the month is usually when I publish my 'This Month's Recipes' posts, but I've been thinking of giving those posts a bit of an overhaul for a while now, and the beginning of the year seems as good a time to start as any. These new monthly posts will be a bit more of a 'behind the scenes' kind of thing. Here are a few examples of things you can … Read more
