When I made this pie for the first time a few weeks ago the family really enjoyed it. We love chicken pie, and it’s been a while since I made something with phyllo pastry (I happened to have some in the freezer that needed to be used) so I put the two together in this very easy recipe – yummo!

We’ve enjoyed this meal a few times over the last few weeks, and if you’re a mushroom lover like us then I’m sure you’ll love it too. This meat free stroganoff is so creamy and comforting, and thanks to the texture and umami flavour of the mushrooms you probably won’t even miss the meat.

There is definitely a winter chill in the air! Bring on the boots, scarves, hot chocolate and cosy evenings by the fire, I love it all. Also, what better excuse to embrace comfort food (although if I’m honest I do that all year round) and dishes like this easy one pan chicken meal.

I recently got my hands on a beautiful new cookbook by Zorah Booley (creator of In The Midnight Kitchen). “The Everyday Low-FODMAP cookbook” is filled with delicious recipes designed around good gut health, to help soothe inflammation and reduce the symptoms associated with IBS. The book includes everything from comforting side dishes to breakfasts, easy meals to decadent desserts, and more. And with such a gorgeous selection of dishes no-one ever needs to feel left out or deprived when following the Low-FODMAP diet.

The weather (not to mention the general atmosphere) has been pretty dreary, so I thought that this comfort meal would be the perfect thing to share this week. You’ll definitely want to add beef trinchado to your winter menu, and take your tastebuds on a virtual trip to Portugal at the same time!

While Cape Town still decides whether it is actually spring or not (and I sit and type at my desk watching the clouds gather outside) I thought I’d sneak in a cooler weather dish. Tomato bredie is a South African family pleaser and has the marvellous combination of lamb, fragrant spices and tomatoes that we know and love. Once all of the ingredients are in the pot you can leave it to work its magic until its time to serve up. Scrumptious!

It’s week three of self isolation for my family not to mention one week into South Africa’s lockdown, and it felt wrong to just put out another recipe without acknowledging the strange and unsettling situation that we all find ourselves in right now. So for this post I’m doing something a little different and sharing not only some recipe inspiration but some thoughts on how we’re managing at home, and our new routine. Please feel free to add your own thoughts in the comments, I’d love to hear how you’re doing!
