I made this for lunch last week, with more produce from the farmers market and plenty of inspiration from this salad. Those tiny new potatoes were boiled until just tender, then tossed in a knob of ghee and some of that smoky spiced salt blend. Onto a bed of arugula they went, along with leftover smoky roasted corn, some chopped toasted almonds, half an avocado and lemon zest. It was filling and fresh and immensely satisfying all at once.

Do you usually have a sudden urge to bite or chew on something, especially at work and in-between meals? Well, I have that all the time. This habit could be harmful on the waistline, not to mention spoiling the appetite for the main meals.
The solution is to chew on something healthy but carrots and celery sticks are not the only options. These spiced banana oat cookies have no added sugar, are healthy, chewy and provides just the right kick to get your blood sugar up to a safe level. Only thing you need to watch out is how many you pop into your mouth!

There are a handful of ingredients that are essential to my kitchen kit. Chilli, flaky sea salt, herbs, and olive oil all play a key role in ‘waking up’ humble ingredients and adding character and flavour to a whole range of dishes – a fresh seasonal salad, a big tray of roasted root veggies, stews, soups, chutneys, and sweets.
If flaky sea salt, olive oil, herbs and chilli are the classic pair of denim jeans of the kitchen – safe, trusty and comfortable – then lemons are the bright feature piece, the killer heels, the bright lipstick, and the statement bag to go with them. In my opinion, lemons are the ingredient that every cook should have on hand to add exciting, fresh flavour to food.

*Living in Scotland, a place known for its love – nay, worship – of homey baked goods, fresh fruit scones are not common. Actually, in all the twenty-something years that I have lived here, I have yet to encounter one. I’m assuming someone here makes them, maybe sells them. But I don’t get out much. Maybe in Glasgow you can hardly get down the pavement without tripping over fresh fruit scones.
