Mindful Chef – Fish Pie

By

September 29, 2016

So, later than expected. I don’t know why I am not finding time to cook properly, but the days just whiz by. You’ll remember the ingredients of the fish pie, as they came out of the Mindful Chef box. A sweet potato, spinach, a can of coconut milk, some cornflour and paprika, some beans....

Mindful Chef

September 26, 2016

This is the second of the recipe boxes I am trying – Mindful Chef. After my experience with Gousto (which was totally satisfactory regarding what they supplied, but fell down in my execution of their recipes), I decided to wait until this week, when I was on holiday and had plenty of time.

The steps described were straightforward enough, and I didn’t feel rushed (however, at 30°C, I did feel hot!). My presentation skills not-withstanding, it looked nice enough on the plate, and it went down very...

September 10, 2016

As I mentioned, the other day, this week I am trying a recipe box from Gousto. The box I am reviewing contains 3 different meals, each with two portions; it sells for £34.99, but I am taking advantage of a £25 discount, giving it to me for 9.99. The idea of these boxes appeals...

Recipe Boxes

September 3, 2016

Here's the thing: I can cook, and cook well, but left to my own devices, I tend to get in a rut - even that rut will start out healthy, but soon declines with my enthusiasm. That's largely how this blog started!
