Everyday life of a foodie



Pasta with Bacon and Gorgonzola 

This was a favourite of mine at Uni but I haven’t thought of it for years! I have had a few trips down memory lane lately and gone through loads of old photos from Uni and I guess the recipe just came back to me – I was delighted to re-establish the acquaintance!

Roast Chicken Salad with Melon

We tried out our new Le Creuset today and used it to roast a whole chicken to have with our salad! I loved it, I felt like such a grown up and the chicken came out perfect!

Pasta salad 

It’s a sunny sunny day and all I could think of eating was a nice cold pasta salad. It hardly counts as cooking but it was all I could manage on a day like this. You can tell I’m definitely from a nordic country as I can’t function when it’s over 25 degrees.  Continue reading “Pasta salad “
