Philosykos Eau de Parfum by Diptyque, & a Fig, Feta & Honey Salad

September 12, 2014 LLG Beauty

It’s most definitely autumn outside. Although it’s just warm enough to wear shorts in the afternoon, and I automatically still  pick up my sunglasses when I leave the house, there is that underlying nip in the air that says that summer is over. I always start wearing a different scent as the seasons change. Today […]

Supper for my girlfriends: Peach & Buffalo Mozzarella Salad, Kohlrabi Remoulade and more…

August 20, 2014 LLG Food

I invited seven girlfriends round for supper the night before we departed for Wilderness, and I realised at 6pm that I hadn’t given a moment’s thought to the menu for the evening. Thankfully I have London’s best greengrocer on my street, so I whipped downstairs and into Parkway Greens with a huge shopping basket, to scoop up […]

Recipe: Baked Camembert with Rosemary & Roasted Spring / Salad Onions

July 16, 2013 LLG Food

Is this a recipe? I think that’s probably pushing it. What it really should be described as is: what you buy for supper when you go to the Spar supermarket in Norfolk only to discover that the locusts have descended, that the remaining meat is battery farm fresh, that the only salads left are spring […]

Easter Bank Holiday Lunch: Pear, Blue Cheese & Chicory Salad, Roast Lamb, Orange Cake

April 1, 2013 LLG Food

Being stuck in England for Easter had its bonuses, one of which was being able to drive up the glamorous M1 to my mother’s cottage in Northamptonshire for Easter Bank Holiday lunch today. She was cooking for nine people, so one more wasn’t going to be an issue. I was thrilled as lots of my […]

LLG Cooks: Recipe for Roasted Cherry Tomato & Sweet Corn Salad with Basil

August 21, 2012 LLG Food

I was astonished at how delicious this warm salad was today: I had pretty low expectations of it, seeing as I made it up on the spot, but, well, yum. I knew Meriel & Liz were coming round for lunch today; Meriel had requested my avocado on toast, which I had made when I visited […]

Recipe Friday: Avocado Grapefruit Red Onion Salad

October 20, 2011 LLG Food

Oh this flavour combination is too good. (I know it’s a bit summery for my UK readers, but I figure it’s perfect for those in Australasia and on the West Coast.) I had bought a big fat Florida pink grapefruit and a couple of perfect Florida avocados in Delicious Orchards with no real intent, and […]

Recipe: Mushroom, Spinach, Lentil, Feta, Quinoa Salad

April 1, 2011 LLG Food

This is healthy, carb-light (aghh summer approaching, no more tights and baggy sweaters), and PACKED with vitamins. And so very, very idiot-proof. (I hope.)

Recipe: Halloumi & watercress salad

March 19, 2011 LLG Food

I’m not sure you can really call this a recipe. It’s more assembled than cooked…and it certainly doesn’t need a written method or even quantities. But it’s quick and simple and sometimes I need reminding how delicious certain flavour & texture combinations can be, so I’m thinking that maybe one or two of you may […]

Recipe: Halloumi, pomegranate & chicory salad with clementine pinenut couscous

December 28, 2010 LLG Food

After what felt like days of indulgent Christmas eating but was actually only a long weekend, we were all ready for something fresh, crisp and green last night. And which didn’t involve leftovers. I foraged around in the fridge and the vegetable drawer to come up with grilled Halloumi cheese served with a composed salad […]
