Well who knew that there was such a versatile sustainable fruit growing in the tropics that could become a staple part of our diet in the next few decades?

Now here's a rich, delicious winter warmer for you! Tender chunks of beef steak, slowly cooked in a tomato, bell pepper and paprika sauce - yuuuummy! This will warm your cockles!
And the weekend is here again! I don't know about you but I'm finding it hard to keep track of the days but instinct always tells me when the weekend is approaching as it usually means I fancy a treat.

Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday, is the traditional Ash Wednesday feast day prior to the start of Lent. Lent–the 40 days leading up to Easter–was traditionally a time of fasting, and Anglo-Saxon Christians went to confession on Shrove Tuesday and were "shrivelled" (absolved from their sins).
Risotto is one of my favourite meals and it never gets boring because you can add some many things to it. Treat it well, and it will reward you with a creamy, comforting dinner that the whole family will love. Being vegetarian, it's a great meal for a 'no meat Monday' if you're a meat eater and you could dress it up a tad for a very tasty posh dinner dish.
The humble potato. A root vegetable, native to the Americas but grown all over the world, especially throughout the UK and Europe. If it is comfort food you are looking for, generally speaking a potato can be found in the recipe somewhere or somehow because they are simply soft, hearty, and filling.
This is a fabulous recipe to have a go at this weekend with your children. A simple, quick and easy to do bake that is well, quite simply, delicious! Chocolate Chip Muffins...
