Vivacious Vietnamese stew

  This is a recipe based on one that Stella made on holiday in Vietnam so it is a joint effort after I put in a few extra bits. On first glance this looks like a lot of ingredients and a lot of hassle but to be honest it’s easier than you would think.  Of…… Continue reading Vivacious Vietnamese stew

MESSY MISO MANGO CRAZY CHICKEN WRAPS

I think I either put too much sauce on or maybe it was still…… Continue reading Little Lo-Dough© Pizza Bursting with Virtuous Veg and Devilishly Daring Sauce

Spanking Spaghetti with Tingly Tenderstem Broccoli, Garlic and Chilli

As I’m forever watching my weight and cholesterol I usually shy away from too much oil but this dish really does need it.  It is however high in monounsaturated fats which apparently help the high cholesterol battle so it’s not all bad.  This stunningly simple dish is a great little meal and the use of…… Continue reading Spanking Spaghetti with Tingly Tenderstem Broccoli, Garlic and Chilli
