Salad packs are easy to grab in the supermarket and easy to forget about, honestly. If you're not keen on cooking up your greens, then how about making a waste-busting pesto? My dearest friend Chloe has lived in Italy for 15 years, and I'm not sure how she'd feel...read more
How to rescue leftover salad packs I'm not a fan of salad packs - those washed bags of rocket and crunchy slightly meh leaves. I definitely don't like a bowl of rocket. As a dedicated veg box customer these fuckers come my way from time to time. Supermarket salad...read more
On my leftover ricotta quest, as discussed, once I realised that a. it's just soft cheese, and b., it's a common Italian ingredient, well, friends, my life got a lot easier. I bought the Rachel Roddy books last year and have been lucky enough to meet her a couple of...read more
A quick google search for baking with leftover ricotta pairs it with lemon; I wanted something a little more tea-time-y, for the kids (ahem) to attack after school. Naturally, Italian recipes are where I should have headed to, straight away, when I was staring at the...read more

During my fridge full of milk conundrum, lots of people suggested a cheese sauce freezing for another day. So I thought: I'll let you know why MY mum's cheese/white sauce is the best. You're WELCOME. My mum taught me to gently heat the milk with a bay leaf, seasoning...read more
If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that I had a few problems with milk over the Christmas period. Over autumn, I moved to glass milk bottle milk deliveries, in a bid to cut down on my single-use plastic. I love having the glass bottles and teaching my kids...read more
My kids love a bowl of peanuts and a fizzy drink. There aren't always a whole heap of leftovers nuts but this year, for some reason, we didn't get through so many. Method The easiest way to get through your leftover salty nuts - peanuts, almonds, any nuts you can...read more
(This is an updated post from last year) Okay yes it's a sandwich BUT, it's to illustrate a point... and yes it's a horrible photo, but I've been learning a lot and I hate to make food to just photograph it. A lot of people aren't keen on freezing cooked meat. Once...read more
