Rhubarb strawberry trifle in progress

This week has been Holiday week – a week of staycation. We have romped around Kew Gardens, been swimming, had some time together as a family, and some time to ourselves too. It’s been a good week. Lots of leftovers building on each other, quite a lot of quick cooking. Tomorrow we have friends visiting for lunch, so there has been a bit of preparation for that, to make tomorrow as effort-free as possible (including the trifle above). E has tucked into bolognese, a lot of yoghurt, nectarines and doughnut peaches, as many cherries as she could get her hands on, and for the first time today, an ice lolly.


  • Tagliata – with a beaten out piece of topside, from Nigella’s Feast
  • Fish curry, approximately from Curry in a Hurry in Nigella Express

Without a recipe:

  • Pork with green lentils
  • Bolognese from the freezer with pasta
  • Takeaway chinese
  • Pizza with courgette, tomato, yellow pepper and bacon

I’m Louise, and I’m a compulsive baker, cookbook hoarder and a bit of a food geek. I learnt to cook at home, and later at Tante Marie’s cooking school in San Francisco. With a science degree and a background in IT analysis, I like to understand why a recipe works, not just how to do it. Why the rules are there and when they can be broken.
