You may have spotted that I like soup…..especially, thick “meal-soup” types. Here is my latest recipe. This one is for Chicken Cassoulet Soup. Made 2 ways, a “normal way” and a “healthy” way.

Introducing my Chicken Arabiatta Soup Recipe. “Another soup recipe!?”…what can I say, I love making up new soups. I particularly love the “meal-soup” type recipes.

In my quest to find fast but interesting dinners, I’ve recently taken to adding things to baked-beans to make them even more tasty when put on a jacket-potato (or toast I suppose!)
