Friday, January 05, 2018


As we all start heading back to work, that hellish question: "What's for dinner?" seems to be coming up a lot more often, am I right? I've been pinning the heck out of so many recipes and last night I though, "hmm, what about all that shit I pinned? Surely I could make something our of one of those recipes?". So I opened Pinterest and WHOA, I was surprised at the number of yummy recipes I had saved and never bothered to make.

Here are just 8 out of the thousands (ok hundreds) of recipes I have always wanted to make. Hopefully one of these inspires your inner Nigella at supper time tonight?
