Pumpkin Butter

It seems that everywhere you go, butter - which used to be considered the arch enemy of healthy eating - is now the "in" thing to eat. Be it good old peanut, almond, sunflower seed, cashew or avocado, butter is being slathered on every edible surface possible. I had never heard of Pumpkin Butter until my husband suggested … Continue reading Pumpkin Butter

Indian Summer Salad

The summer (and probably a touch of global warming) is certainly serving us well this year. Ever since the start of June I can honestly say that I have been sweating like a pig - not very ladylike, but true! - and in traditional Brit style all I can do is complain about the heat that I had … Continue reading Indian Summer Salad

Sweet Potato Cumin Fries with Harissa Dips

I can’t help but chuckle as the lyrics to “Dazed and Confused” bellow from the radio – how apt is this song for how I am feeling right now?!! Having just waved goodbye to my crazy BFF, I am definitely all in a daze (and suffering from severe food and booze hangovers) after a riotous 4th of … Continue reading Sweet Potato Cumin Fries with Harissa Dips

Home-Made Hummus

I have an insanely sweet tooth, which is partly why I have settled into life in America so well. No matter where you go the next sugar fix is never far away. Pop into the drug store and a huge candy aisle awaits you, order a bacon and egg breakfast and it'll come drizzled in maple syrup. Watergate Salad, … Continue reading Watergate Salad – Easter Sunday

Thanksgiving Countdown: Green Bean Casserole

Green beans are wonderful and very nostalgic. Many people will have grown up with fond memories of eating home-grown green beans from the vegetable patches of their back garden. However, rather surprisingly, it was not until I arrived in Seattle that I discovered the wonderful dish that is Green Bean Casserole. Again it was at mom's dinner table that I got my first … Continue reading Thanksgiving Countdown: Green Bean Casserole

Thanksgiving Countdown: Biscuits & Gravy

Catching up with family and friends is fantastic, but every meeting is held over brunch, lunch or dinner. So while I thought my waistline was going to be endangered by the legendary American portions, it is in fact back home in England where I can feel the pounds invading my hips. The food in America is … Continue reading Thanksgiving Countdown: Biscuits & Gravy

Thanksgiving Countdown: Skillet Cornbread

I've just arrived in the UK and am SO excited to be back. I love living in Seattle, but as Dorothy said "There's no place like home" and who could argue with a girl in such fabulous shoes?!!! But there was something rather disagreeable waiting for me in the arrivals lounge at Heathrow - not my family, my girlfriends, or even George … Continue reading Thanksgiving Countdown: Skillet Cornbread
