This is going to be my go-to post for my New Year’s ‘eat less meat’ resolution. Thank you x


great post, i love receipts 🙂 want to start cooking right now


Maybe for Christmas 2012, there might be a LLG recipe book. Pleeeease? I’ll make them ALL, I promise.


Are you a closet veggie? I am especially in the summer; I much prefer the veggies at a BBQ generally, and all the lovely salads rather than poorly cooked meat betwixt dry buns. Winter is harder tho, as I do love a good roast…you recipes sound lush tho, I shall try once my morning sickness abates and I can venture back into the kitchen.


Thank you for this lovely collection of foodie inspiration. Made the mushroom, beans and mozzarella dish this evening and worked a treat!
