Avo & Chili – Mexican Layer

As per usual I hauled the heavy recipe books and files out of the cupboard and began to flick though to find something tasty, and well, when I saw the words avocado, I was sold! A tasty snack or starter recipe that’s quick, effortless and delish!

Fruit & Nut Biscuits

My Granny’s old recipe for biscuits. This recipe is amazing, substitute the ingredients and make it your own…really the possibilities are endless! A perfect tea time treat.

Glazed Carrots

Joosh up those boring old carrots! This post is for a rather delicious little gem of a recipe for carrots that I served with Sunday’s roast

Milo Chocolate Cake

Growing up my mum almost always home made our birthday cakes, she went to great lengths to make our birthday’s special. In the spirit of keeping family traditions going…it is my husband’s birthday this May and for Alex’s birthday I’m combining two of his favourite things – chocolate and chocolate!


Breakfast Smoked Haddock Kedgeree – fresh and easy ingredients in a single dish, quick to make and looks impressive!

Chicken in Puff Pastry

I’ve been feeling all inspired by my mama, who regularly made up recipes based on what we had lying around in the house. So hoping the apple didn’t fall too far from the tree I started to think about what we had in the fridge…

Fruity Pork Chops

What can I say about this recipe…I adore it. I went to yoga and came home to make this recipe, it was ready in less than a half hour, it was so easy I had time to record a juggling instagram video and make a salad! I love making pork and never know what to do with it other than fry and serve with apple sauce, so when flicking through my mum’s handwritten recipes…

Watermelon Salad

I’m always on the hunt for interesting salad recipes. This one is no exception…though I’m not sure my beagle, Clara, agreed with me!

Bran-ana Muffins

An alternative to banana bread for those old bananas ! So that little lump of joy in the picture above is me as a baby, obviously already in love with cooking, the kitchen and wooden spoons!

Oven Spaghetti

Delicious Oven Spaghetti. This was one of the first things my mum taught me how to cook, it really is very simple so don’t be afraid to give it a go, and sample different ingredients.

Kerry Potatoes

As you may have gathered from our weird hard to pronounce names (unless you too are Irish), that my family is Irish. For reference Sinéad is pronounced “Shin-aide” and Maura (my mum) “More-Uh”. And the reason I bring it up is stereo-typically, both my mum and I love a good potato, and a good potato recipe!
