Lucy Loves… Spicy Prawns with Green Beans

I am celebrating tonight. George sat his last GCSE this morning so my nagging days are over, until September at least. I feel exhausted in every way, it’s as though I sat the 30 odd exams myself. I have shouted, cried, baked, hugged, comforted; every range of emotions have been covered, and that’s just me,…

Lucy Loves… Chocolate Beer Loaf Cake

Father’s Day is on the horizon again and for me, it means buying 3 bloody cards, even though I only actually have one Father of my own. The boys are perfectly capable of getting a card for Clyde, as is Clyde for own Father, but left to their own devices, no cards would be purchased….

Lucy Loves… Tiny Picnic Pies

Blimey it’s been warm this weekend and lucky me, I’ve predominantly spent it in my kitchen or sorting out our eldest’s bedroom ready for his triumphant return from Uni next weekend. The latter involved me removing all my Lucy Loves plates, glasses, cutlery and trays from his room which had fashioned itself into some sort…

Lucy Loves… A Classic Victoria Sponge

Goodness me I’ve been writing Lucy Loves and rambling away for 5 years now and never featured a Victoria Sponge. I’m not quite sure how that’s happened as I must make this classic cake at least once a fortnight. Not only is this evergreen recipe my favourite, it seems to be a top 5 for…

Black Pudding, Potato and Egg Bake recipe from Lucy Loves

Lucy Loves… Black Pudding, Potato and Egg Bake

This week I have been all about food waste. I am the product of a war child, my Dad, so I have inherited his inability to throw anything away. I can often be heard telling the boys to eat something past it’s use by date as long as it isn’t green or a bit whiffy….

Lucy Loves… Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse

I spend quite a good deal of time researching chocolate mousse. ‘Get out more’ I hear you cry, but it’s quite the labour of love and not really a hardship. Mousse is such a great dinner party or family dessert, I love finding new recipes and perfecting old ones. When my Mother handed me a…

Lucy Loves…One Pot Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Mac and Cheese in any form is a house favourite. In fact, you can tell by the amount of Mac and Cheese recipes that feature on Lucy Loves. My boys love pasta and let’s face it, it’s cheap and filling which ticks all the boxes for me, as well as them. I was always go to…

Lucy Loves…Easter Simnel Cake

Easter can’t come soon enough for me. I am excited to spend some time with the family, to enjoy some food, drink too much and to put my feet up for an hour or two. You can keep all your cheap chocolate, give me a bloody great big slice of Simnel Cake and I will…

Lucy Loves… Ricotta, Spinach, Egg Italian Easter Tart

Easter is coming and the goose is getting fat. Oh no, that’s Christmas, but never mind, the sentiment’s the same. We are having a standard family get together over Easter and I have been giving some thought to the food *always*. We will, I expect, go for a traditional leg of lamb on Easter Sunday,…

Lucy Loves… Coconut Lentil Soup

I am, and to quote Nigella as I have been watching old episodes of her Nigella Bites show, in Temple Food mode. I have been being particularly out of control with my biscuit habit recently and decided enough is enough. Woman can not live by chocolate coated Malted Milk biscuits alone. Also, my vegan selection…
