The Perfect Cheese Board

After scouring Pinterest for ideas for the picnic, one thing I noticed everyone had at a picnic, be it big or small was some sort of cheese board, which meant I absolutely had to have one. This involved not just cheese and crackers, but several other elements as well. I started off with three different…

Sandwiches

A sandwich is a done thing for a picnic. We stuck to two simple sandwiches a Chicken with Marinara Sauce and a Tomato and Cheese one. I had initially planned to do a pesto one however one of the salads had a pesto in it, so I thought why not change it up. Again, I…

Salads

  Salads are a super easy thing to whip up for a picnic, and are honestly super easy to eat. It’s not drippy, its light and can be eaten cold. We were quite ambitious while planning and decided to do 5 salads, but in the end we only made 3 salads. I made two a…

Spaghetti Carbonara

I’ve made this for years, but this recipe is a new one I tried. I originally saw the recipe on one of Nigella’s show and have made it that way for years. But this recipe is mix between hers and Jamie Oliver’s. For the spaghetti: Bacon Spaghetti 3 egg yolks 120ml cream Parmesan Cream Cook…

Chicken Salad with Spinach and Bacon

Since I haven’t done much of savoury so far, I thought I’d start now. This is a simple salad which takes no time at all. It’s the kind of thing I’d put together in the middle of the night and rightfully so since I got the recipe from Nigella’s Forever Summer book. It also works…
