Simple Salad of Tomatoes and Onions with Lemon Caper Dressing

Lemon infused olive oil is good, I mean really good; but what can it be used for?  Well, lemon linguine for one thing, or how about over quinoa,couscous or bulgur wheat, or how about a lemon polenta olive oil cake?

Having been kindly sent a bottle from Italia Regina; an online Italian food company that sources quality ingredients from Italy and delivers them to your door here in the UK, I wondered what I should make.

Tomato and Onion Salad with Lemon Caper Dressing

I was sent both the Lemon-infused Olive Oil from Marchesi along with a bottle of Giuseppe Giusti Balsamic Vinegar.  Italia Regina's delivery service was excellent with the items very well packaged.
I love the bottles so much so I really didn't want to open them; but of course I had to in order to try them!

Eating Frugally Doesn’t Mean It Has to Be Beans on Toast

We all love to eat well but that doesn’t mean we can all afford to eat out very often. Cooking from scratch at home is the way forward when you want to eat good and tasty meals for less.

However, many people get stuck in their ways when it comes to meal planning, especially if they’re not particularly creative or daring in the kitchen. Making just a few changes to the way you approach cooking at home can make it easier to serve up interesting meals and save money at the same time. Read on to find how to do that.

Prosciutto di San Daniele and Grana Padano Cheese - Giveaway

Prosciutto di San Daniele & Grana Padano cheese, two very traditional and well known Italian products that have been awarded with the PDO logo.

I absolutely love Grana Padano cheese and use it a lot, it's very similar to Parmigiano Reggiano or 'Parmesan' so can be used in a wide range of recipes.

Prosciutto di San Daniele is the best, it's totally delicious; Prosciutto is an Italian dry-cured ham that's usually thinly sliced and melts in your mouth.

Prosciutto di San Daniele and Grana Padano Cheese

Both have been recognised by the European Union as Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) products since 1996. In order to achieve PDO status, products must respect the strict Production Specifications.

Easy Dinner Idea - SPAM and Baked Bean Hash - Plus a GIVEAWAY

A can of SPAM® is such a useful food thing to have in the store cupboard, that little (or large) tin means you'll never be stuck for a quick and easy dinner.

SPAM® is so easy to cook; slice it, dice it, fry it, grill it the choice is yours.  Of course you can even serve SPAM® straight from the can as it's already cooked, just add egg and chips for a super fast dinner everyone will love.

But it's not all SPAM® and chips! There are so many options for fast and tasty meals.  Why not try my SPAM® and Baked Bean Hash for a easy, cheap, quick and filling dinner that the whole family will enjoy; especially the kids.

SPAM Hash with Beans

This recipe can easily be adapted for the whole family; just double the ingredients accordingly.

Top Tip!
You might want to buy the bigger 415g tin of beans, use half and keep half as they are cheaper to buy. The same goes for the SPAM as it is also available in a larger tin.  Just be sure to store correctly in the fridge and not in the tin.  They will both keep for a couple of days.  Read over the page for the recipe and a giveaway!
