Tomato and watermelon gazpacho

I’m one of those food bloggers who snaps a shot of a dish right before I eat it. I work full time, I have two kids and I’m always out and about. I don’t have the time nor the inclination to make food for the blog that I’m not going […]

Retro love – Prawn Cocktail

Some matches never get old. Tomatoes and basil, apples and cinnamon, fish and chips with lemon, red wine and cheese. Cold prawns with 1970s cocktail sauce. Mmmmm awesome….
