My favourite books - Fiction and Nonfiction

This post may be a different from my usual food related posts, but as the days go by, I feel more inclined to share a little more about me.  Maybe you’ll love it, maybe you’ll hate it, who knows, but here goes... 

I've recently rediscovered my passion for reading, so the time felt right to share this. I've shared my favourite fiction, autobiography/biography/memoirs and nonfiction books, with a brief description about why I love each one, as well as a list that many of you kindly sent me last week.

I hope you like this and find it useful. As usual, I would love your feedback.

Fresh pasta with aubergine, mushroom and borlotti bean sauce

New on the blog today is a hearty aubergine, mushroom and borlotti bean sauce, which I've served with Schär's new gluten free Bonta D’Italia fresh egg tagliatelle. 

As you may have noticed, I’m going through a bit of a pasta theme at the moment… My last savoury recipe on the blog was a pasta dish, and I recently shared another pasta recipe on my Instagram, but that's because it's just too good! The shapes, varieties and sauce choices are endless, so why not? 

I hope you like this one!

Spring Clean

I don’t know about you, but it finally feels like spring is in the air (most of the time). The mornings are lighter, the days are longer and the temperature is warmer. I always find that as Spring approaches I begin to feel a little restless. I have an urge to sort things, to declutter and to get myself organised for whatever the next season may bring. 

With that in mind, today on the blog I'm sharing my thoughts about a recent trial of Fantastic Services who came and gave my flat a wonderful spring clean, as well as a few of my favourite resources to help you declutter too. I'd love to know your thoughts!

Plus, it’s quick, easy, and delicious. I’ve recently rediscovered my passion for experimenting in the savoury kitchen, so I hope you like this one!

If you want a croissant, then eat one.

If you want a croissant, then eat one.  

Or at least that’s what I’ve been telling myself for years.

Since I shared a bit more about my journey, quite a few individuals have gotten in touch. So today on the blog I’ve shared a little bit about overcoming food anxiety. I’ve shared about a personal struggle and a recent little win. If it resonates, then maybe you can even join me on this one too?
