A very quick, beautiful and versatile dish that can be served with breakfast, brunch, or as a side for dinner. If you’re a vegan / vegetarian, just leave out the bacon or add a soy alternative like sgaia.

I make this pesto every week, why, because it can be used with so many different dishes. Try it in sandwiches, on pizza, with grilled meats or drizzle through a good soup.

Whether I grow 1,2 or 5 tomato plants, at the end of the Summer season, I always have enough tomatoes for my whole neighbourhood, which luckily for me is a good thing.

This recipe belonged to my children’s grandfather, Popsie, who was a fab home cook and my best friend.
Gone are the days when these little green gems were boiled to death before the chicken even hit the oven. This recipe takes Brussel sprouts to a brand new level of delicious. Great during the cold winter months when they’re in season, as this recipe punches sunshine, personality and flavour into every mouthful.
