Roasting tin panzanella, one of the most delicious and easy dinners made from scraps from the veg drawer and bread bin. Roasted a chicken with peppers, tomatoes, red onions, loads of skin on garlic cloves, rosemary, balsamic & oil. Crisp up half a loaf of sourdough torn into chunks then throw into the tray when the chicken is resting along with olives & basil. Smush it all together a bit and leave for 10 mins or so to let the bread soak up all the lovely chickeny juices. Inspired by @rebecca_woollard  who I’m sure also had a hungry toddler nipping at her ankles! #dinnertonight  #familyfood  #dairyfree  #chicken  #panzanella

On a mission to use up every scrap in the fridge. This aubergine has been shrivelling in the bottom of the veg drawer for over a week but slow roasted with harissa is was just 👌🏻 served with spiced, roasted chickpeas & brown rice (for the little one too) and topped with feta, mint, coriander and harissa spiked hummus for me #dinnertonight

Previously vegan banana bread (until toasted and smothered in salty butter) still going strong after 5 days in the tin. Toasting banana bread gives it a lovely chewy edge and if it’s studded with choc, like this one, you’ll get some gorgeous molten pockets. I developed this recipe when breastfeeding my first child who suffers with a #dairyallergy  /#cmpa  and it’s been a favourite ever since. Berries for balance #veganbananabread  #veganbaking  #5minutespeace  #cakebreak  #dairyfreebaking

All time favourite summer dessert, a lovely big pav. You can’t beat meringue, whipped cream and English strawbs, right? Added a splash of elderflower cordial because #summer #pavlova  #summervibes  #strawberriesandcream

Cornish strawberries might just be the sweetest I’ve tasted, or do the first of the season always taste that good? Feeling like one of the Von Trapp kids after eating a mountain of these beautiful berries today 🍓🍓🍓#trevaskisfarm  #pyo  #cornwall  #strawberries

Jam or cream first? I recon you can get way more cream loaded on this way so I’m with the Cornish. Our reward for walking the Coastal path today with a buggy and sling in tow. #creamtea  #cornishcreamtea  #stives

6 hrs in the car with a 2 year old and a 4 month old = 1 round of sing-a-long Frozen, 10 episodes of Peppa Pig, 3 meltdowns and countless packets of Pom bears. Totally worth it for this, straight to the beach to dip our toes in the sea 🌊 #porthmeorbeach  #cornwall  #stives  #holiday

Brunch date with my little bestie. Baby sleeping so we had a deep and meaningful about the big issues of the day - what Bing likes in his smoothies (bananas and carrots) and her new Minions toothbrush #thelittlethings  #sundaybrunch
