Mushrooms, Spinach and Egg on toast

Stuff on Toast: Spinach, Mushrooms and Egg

  After my last Stuff On Toast post my mum sent me a text message saying “OMG Alice, I’ve been making scrambled eggs wrong for the last 40 years!” (though she probably didn’t say OMG as she is part of the generation that thinks LOL means Lots Of Love) So I have decided to dedicate this […]…

Stuff on Toast: Perfect Scrambled Eggs

When Hux was first born I used to cook quite a lot. Now, before you give birth, one of the bits of advice you always read is to make sure you have loads of prepared food in your freezer, ready to turn into easy and delicious meals. I did some of that but also managed […]…


MTT: Goats Cheese and Caramelised Onion Tart

MTT: Thyme and Garlic Sauteed Mushrooms

It’s a bit of an obvious statement, but once I discovered fresh herbs at the age of 22 or so (and I don’t just mean some limp Basil sandwiched between mozarella and tomato or chucked into spag bol) my cooking was revolutionised. Herbs bring the most wonderful flavours to the simplest dishes, raising them up […]…
