The Best Orange Cake Ever

I was so excited to see a picture of the delicious upside down orange cake I made, feature in this month’s Tesco magazine – so I thought I’d share the recipe online. The recipe is Tesco’s, I made it, put it on instagram (@gottolovecoffee) and Tesco picked it up and asked if it was ok to show in their magazine. Of course it was 😊 Seriously, this cake is so good, really easy and quite impressive looking – for very little effort. Once you made it the first time, you’ll be making it again and again, I promise you. With...

Creamy chicken masala pasta with mushrooms

This is another one-pot wonder from ‘Tasty’ and definitely one to try! I can’t emphasise enough how delicious it is and yet so easy. It’s a rich and creamy dish that you can cook all in one pot! (including the pasta) – just make sure it’s a good-sized to that you use. We love pasta in our house and this one was a winner with everyone. The masala wine really adds a depth of flavour. So – when you fancy something a little bit of indulgence but don’t want to be cooking all night long – make this your go-to...

How to Make the Best Spicy Pork Burgers

Let's face it, we all need burgers in our lives. I'm not talking about heading out for a Big Mac or a whopper (although I'm guilty of consuming both at times) I'm talking about creating your very own gourmet burgers at home and these are the best spicy pork burgers ever!

Winter Soups are the Best

I know it’s cold, wet, windy and dark! But, one of the good things about Winter is that it’s the perfect opportunity to indulge in delicious winter food favourites and in partiuclar, hearty soups. I do think that Winter soups are the best! Winter in Derbyshire Here in Derbyshire this week, we’ve had our first smatterings of snow followed by downpours of freezing cold rain. Not brilliant and especially not brilliant if you’re dog owners and therefore dog walkers! We have two very giddy dogs. Berkeley our outsize cockapoo (seriously, he was never meant to grow so big and strong)...

Add a little bit of zing to your BBQ – Chimichurri sauce.

So yesterday we decided (along with most of the country I reckon) to have a family bbq (as in just us family). I do enjoy bbq food – but once I’ve eaten a burger (and maybe a hot-dog too) I don’t ever feel like eating anything else – I’m usually stuffed full of bread. Don’t get me wrong – I love bread – but I think that if you’re going to go to the slog of setting up the bbq, you want the experience to last more than that of ‘just’ eating a burger. What I mean is – I...

The Best Chicken, Butternut Squash and Lentil Curry ever

We buy a butternut squash with all the best intentions, but quite often find it sitting neglected in the veg rack weeks later – sometimes someone has even drawn a sad face on it…(yes, that’s how we roll in our house!) In a bid to prevent this from happening again, I found a delicious recipe online and hey presto, this is it. It’s a really hearty dish and we packed in extra vegetables too – courgette and aubergine just to feel an extra bit virtuous! You can also add more chillis or none at all – it’s entirely up to...

Easy Chicken with Orzo Recipe

This is a recipe taken from Nigella's Cook, Eat, Repeat. It's such an easy recipe, as it really looks after itself, but honestly, the flavour of the plumped out orzo, after it's absorbed all the chicken juices is just so delicious - you've got to try it. It's an all-round crowd-pleaser, perfect family food.
