Recipe: Roasted Aubergine & Spinach Curry

Roasted Aubergine & Spinach Curry

Welcome to February! Thank goodness January is finally over - we made it! Possibly the longest, most bleakest month where everyone is poor, sad, on a health kick and/or cold.

This warming, roasted aubergine and spinach curry is perfect for those end of the month weeks before pay day where money is running low, and when temperatures are freezing.

Deliciously fragrant, this isn't a spicy curry due to the coconut milk, more aromatic which works wonderfully with the roasted aubergine. Easy to make, and ready and on the table in around 45 minutes.

Recipe: After Eight Brownies

After Eight Brownies Recipe

Is it too early to mention the C word? Christmas I mean. Whilst we haven't put our tree up yet, I'm feeling super festive already this year and may have even watched my first Christmas film on Netflix last weekend.

After Eights are one of the nation's Christmas chocolates of choice, however I never really think of them as a Christmas treat as Chris will happily eat them all year round (they're one of his favourites). Whilst looking for inspiration for a dinner party with friends a few weeks back, Chris came up with the genius idea to combine one of his favourite chocolates with his favourite dessert, and boy am I glad I listened to him for once!

The Green House, Sutton Coldfield

The Green House Sutton Coldfield

Hello! It's been a while hasn't it? I took a break from the blog to get married and go on to honeymoon (just a small life change!). But now that I'm married, and it's almost Christmas(i.e. acceptable to get a bit chunkier) - it's time to start blogging about food again, so when I was invited to try out The Green House in Sutton Coldfield, I said "yes please!"

The gastro-pub has been recently refurbished and looks super swanky inside now. There was nothing particularly wrong with it before, but now it looks stylish and modern and they've made much better use of the space - meaning more tables for dining and a cosy new bar area to relax with a drink.
