SIMPLE WAYS TO REFRESH YOUR HOME

  How you keep your home, is essentially, how you choose to live. It should be a place that tells your story, and celebrates your day to day life. No matter how seemingly ‘finished’ your décor might be, an inspiring sense of change in your home is always welcome. The more you enjoy your home, the more you’ll take care of it. Instead of allowing mess to accumulate on your kitchen bench, you might feel inspired to de-clutter, and create a pleasing arrangement in it’s place, or instead of leaving piles of laundry build up in the corner of the...

POACHED FISH IN A SUMMERY SOUP

The velvety texture of tender, cannellini beans, are rather pleasing in this gentle, summer soup. There’s also fresh, bright herbs, and softly poached pieces of fish in a light tomato broth. It's a simple recipe, as always, a deliciously tasty expression of how I like to cook.  It's in this week's column for VIVA.

The inclusion of little plump raspberries, is to act as a contrast to the creaminess, just the thing for a midsummer afternoon. The recipe will most probably be my last for the year, I've shared it in today's column for VIVA, I hope you might give it a go! Eleanor xx

ONE-POT PASTA WITH ASPARAGUS, LEMON AND BASIL

I've seen quite a few variations of one-pot pasta floating around the internet. If you haven't tried this no-fuss technique, I gently nudge you to do so, it's simply just too easy not to. In this simple recipe, there's delicately stemmed asparagus, a few handfuls of sweet basil, a large pat of unsalted butter, and the juice of a large lemon. The dried pasta is cooked alongside the other ingredients, allowing the starch to help thicken to a meltingly delicious sauce. It's probably one of the easiest dinners I've ever made, and the variations can be endless, too. I've shared...
