Those little jars of artichokes are so handy to keep in the fridge. We love them in salads, on their own, or in a thrown together lunch plate of boiled eggs with whatever dip, crackers/toast, vegetables, and pickles are on hand. This one-pan recipe uses not just the artichokes but their marinade too. It’s a […]

Pasta is fairly easy to get kids to eat but when something different to their regular tomato-based version comes along, they get judgy and suspicious. Here’s how talk about this spaghetti is likely to go down: Child: I don’t want to eat the green stuff You: OK Child: But there’s green stuff all through it […]

We chopped the ingredients by hand because we were after a chunky texture but you could whiz them up in a food processor. No lemongrass paste? […]
