James and I love to cook. Finding new recipes to try out, making simple but delicious dishes, the occasional extravagent dinner... Most of all, James and I love entertaining. So I thought I'd add something to the site.

If you have a recipe for something that is a family favourite, or a new dish you've just discovered and you'd like to share it with the rest of us, please post it here! If you have photos of the completed dish, that'd be great!

Near-Meatless Pasta Sauce

A few basic ingredients is all it takes. If you keep these in stock regularly, you can vary it as you like. Take a couple of tomatoes, a pepper (red, orange or yellow are my favourites), an inch or two of chorizo, a clove or two of garlic and a spoonful of pesto. Chop up everything except the pesto as chunky or fine as you like it (James and I prefer it fine). I use my Pampered Chef food chopper. So much faster than using my knife. Toss everything into a frying pan, heat up quickly and then turn to low. Once your pasta is cooked, toss it in the frying pan if you like, the pasta mixes well with the sauce then. Nice fresh pasta sauce, and it's more filling than you'd think!
