Cod Dusted In Spelt Flour With Noodles & Vegetables

My husband Peter doesn't eat meat, so at home, fish and veggies are our go-to dishes. Cod is one of my favourite fishes. With its subtle yet delicious flavour, and firm, flakey texture, it goes perfectly with oriental-influenced ingredients such as noodles and pak-choi.
Posh Finger Sandwich

A Gluten-Free Posh Fish Finger Sandwich

I'm a huge fan of fish finger sandwiches. They were one of my favourite childhood treats but as I got older I became more and more intolerant to gluten which meant I couldn't indulge as much as I liked.

Pan-Fried Cod dusted in Spelt Flour and Coconut & Served on Quinoa

This is one of my all time favourite recipes. So fresh and delicious, it really does taste as flavoursome as it looks. In fact, just a few weeks ago when I shared a picture of this dish on my Facebook page, I was met with multiple requests to post the recipe.

So thanks to Hannah of Mums Days who recently spoilt me with several gifts for my birthday, one being the book Eat Pretty, I have quit chicken and am eating, well, everything to make me feel (and hopefully) look my best.

What To Cook For Dinner

As those who follow this blog know, I'm a total foodie, inevitable with parents and a brother who own four award winning restaurants between them, yet like everyone else, I often still struggle with dinner inspiration through the week and knowing what to cook for dinner.
Greek chicken kebabs

Greek Chicken Kebabs

The usual meat to make kebabs is lamb or pork. Of course other meats such as beef, offal, poultry, fish as well as shellfish make super kebabs. Here is my delicious chicken kebab recipe with tomato dressing, marinated in olive oil, lemon juice and herbs to bring out the mediterranean flavours. This is a healthy dish and can be served with a crispy Greek salad.

Grilled Swordfish with a Garlic Sauce

We are massive fish fans in this house and this is a quick, easy, family favourite often rustled up on a weekend; pure sunshine on a plate-'happy food' we call it, tasty and good for you too-your heart, vision and brain!

Tasty Crab Cakes

These tasty and easy to make crab cakes often feature on the specials board at my parents' three restaurants The Olive Tree in Leeds. My son Oliver loves making them with his Grandad, they're fun and fairly healthy too!

The Detox

Ahhh...the detox! I first did Carol Vorderman's famous detox diet when I was 21, it was all the rage back then and everyone was doing it. And yes my skin radiated like I was, erm, 21 (BECAUSE I WAS) and yes, I had boundless energy and could party all night long but that's probably because you've guessed it, I was 21.
