Weekly Love: the one where I announced my new cookbook

1. Over at BBC Food, my recipe for Vietnamese-style Loaded Fries. | 2. Sharing my first new author photo since 2015 (!) as part of the run up towards the publication of my new book. | 3. From over at my Bookstagram profile Lilac & Ink, my review of Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas (ad). | 4. Fetching farm gate eggs from our local vending machine after finding our local supermarket shelves stripped bare. | 5. A great storecupboard dish, again over at BBC Food: my Orzo Risotto with Lemon and Fresh Oregano. Also: have you seen my storecupboard guide yet? | 6. And the big announcement that feels like a lifetime ago now, on June 11th (there are no plans to change this yet!) my second book One Pan Pescatarian will hit the shelves, either if they’re physical or still just digital by then. You can pre-order your copy here (ad).

What have you been finding small pockets of joy in this week, and what have you been up to at home to stay active and occupied? I’ve still got a bit of work to do for clients but then I’m hoping to spend time working on my novel, and of course keep on brining you more recipes using storecupboard essentials. I’ve also been making sure to go for a long country walk each day! For more like this, don’t forget to sign up to my monthly newsletter (and get my free Quick & Easy Weeknight Recipes eBook) which hits your inboxes on the first Sunday of each month packed full of seasonal eats, mini cookbook and restaurant reviews, and other updates!
