Mexican Scrambled Eggs (#20)

I settled on trying this one partially because scrambled eggs are just so easy. I’ve become a big fan of making them over the past year or so. But I really can’t justify just having some scrambled egg on it’s own for dinner so I’ve opted for this Nigella Express recipe. It turned out so…

Pork belly in chilli & fennel with mustard mash (#19)

Pork belly is genuinely the dream. Get that belly in my belly.

Strapatsada (#13)

And here’s a late update to the blog. Not, I will admit, with the most recent recipe I’ve completed but with a nice easy one to get us back into the swing of things. It’s basically a tomato-y scrambled egg on sourdough. I’ve personally had it as a light dinner so that I could crack…
