Weekly Love: the one where I’m giving away a fantastic new grow-your-own book
1. Always wanted to grow your own vegetables at home and you’ve not thought you’d had the space? How To Grow Your Dinner Without Leaving The House by Claire Ratinon teaches you how to do just that, even if the only space you’ve got is a balcony, window box or indoor window ledge. Head over to Instagram, where her publishers have given me three copies to giveaway! | 2. One of my favourite quick seafood lunches from One Pan Pescatarian (ad) – Fried Whitebait Sandwiches (pg 198). | 3. A cheeky Waterstones buy one, get one half price haul over on my bookstagram. | 4. Perfect for using up a seasonal glut of tomatoes, courgettes and peppers, you can find my recipe for this happily vegan Veggie Paella on pg 138 of One Pan. | 5. And a slightly more autumnal recipe from the book on pg 60, my Creamy Butternut Squash Risotto. | 6. I’ve shared my recipe for the Ultimate Moscow Mule over on Instagram.

- And, their guide to roasting vegetables is super helpful, if not a little condescending.
- Yaya and Lloyd went island hopping in Croatia if you’re after a travel post with seriously stunning photos for a big dose of wanderlust.
- And, they’ve put together a great guide to the best day trips you can take driving from London.
- This wooden spoon cleaning hack has me worried about what might be lurking in mine… (though I do dishwasher mine, so…?)
- Also, this is a great tip for cleaning your can opener which is much better for it than trying to wash it up.
