Amazing Potato Wedges

Potato wedges are a standard side dish in our house, although most of the time I wing it and decide what seasoning to use a few seconds before popping them in the oven. I decided to experiment over a couple of weeks and make a note of the different herb and spice combinations I used. … Continue reading Amazing Potato Wedges

Roasted Garlic & Rosemary Bread

Handmade, homemade bread is just the best. It can make a regular tin of tomato soup feel like the best thing you've eaten all week, make a quick snack of bread and butter feel luxurious and make a cheese board supper less about the cheese and more about the bread.

I used love a trip to MA Brothers in Newcastle to stock up on good quality basmati, spices and all the different dahls and flours. It makes me a happy housewife that I can get some … Continue reading Creamy Vegetable Masala
