Caprese Salad Bowl with Tomato, Mozzarella & Avocado for One

Caprese Salad Bowl with Avocado

As I mostly work from home, I often eat lunch alone. Mostly I have an omelette or something on toast, but occasionally it’s nice to make a bit more of an effort. Not that this Caprese salad bowl with avocado and lettuce is much of an effort. Juicy ripe homegrown tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, avocado, crisp lettuce and some peppery olive oil is pretty much all this salad is, but oh my, it sure has a wow factor and it’s perfect for a light summer lunch or side dish.

Matcha Blondies or do I mean Greenies? – We Should Cocoa #71

Matcha Blondies

As some of you may have noticed, since trying matcha in baking a few years ago, with this matcha, rhubarb and chocolate cake, I’ve become rather a fan.

Game, set and matcha.

Broccoli Cauliflower Cheese, Chilli Lime Buttered Corn & More

Broccoli Cauliflower Cheese

When I was challenged by Iceland to make a two course meal for under £10, I went one better and created a three course offering instead. Broccoli cauliflower cheese was the main event. This was served with sweet potato fries for colour, contrast and carbs. We started with colourful corn on the cob smothered with zesty chilli lime butter and we finished with a very indulgent chocolate ice-cream. National Vegetarian Week seems like a very good time to showcase it.
