Chicken & Tarragon Pie

I have three (opened) pots of dried Tarragon in my spice cupboard. Not very savvy shopping, I agree. I obviously panic bought it at some stage, only to leave it mouldering at the back of the cupboard.

Pork Ragu

If you only ever cook one recipe of mine, make it this one. I am almost certain that I’ve said this before, but I promise you, this is something you’re going to want to try!

Roast Pork Chops & Veg with Creamy Mustard Dressing

After Christmas, I didn’t think I would ever want to cook or eat another roast again.

Plum & Almond Upside Down Cake
