The Mother of all Sunday Brunches

Fluffy Yank Pancakes with Bacon (Serves two)

Americans love their sweet and savoury flavour combinations. I was, at first, completely opposed to this. I remember sitting in the cafeteria at the University of North Carolina, observing in horror, as a guy opposite me poured glugs of maple syrup onto his sausages, bacon, and “French toast” (AKA Eggy bread, to us Brits). Where was the HP sauce? Why was the sausage shaped like a burger? It got weirder. One day, innocently looking to fill my plate for lunch, I stumbled across some sweet potato mash, it was covered in a thick layer of a gooey white mess. Would you believe me if I told you it was marshmallow and that in the South this is a perfectly normal and acceptable accompaniment?
So, eventually, I caved in. I tried some of the delights that the dirty south had to offer and I’m unashamed to admit, they are definitely onto something. 

Spicy Sausage Tagliatelle

(Serves two)

A lot of the time, when I get home from work, I’m starving because the Boots salad I had at lunchtime was offensive and I’m tired as hell. So, I just want something quick and easy to make with minimal effort and mess. This is definitely one of those dinners. If you’re watching your calorie intake, be warned, this clocks in at around 1100 calories. However, with that said, this tastes absolutely gorgeous and will leave you feeling satisfied. Just set your alarm for that 5am run you will definitely snooze through tomorrow morning.

Prawn & Chilli Spaghetti


Light, healthy, and full of flavour (Serves 2)

If you're looking to commit carbicide without completely falling off the wagon, this pasta dish is a healthy and protein filled option. It only takes around 15 minutes to make, so you can whip this up and go to watch the newest episode of I Am Cait whilst feeling awkward and frustrated as to why some of the woman on there are hotter than you.

Spanish Frittata


 This is a great lunch to make from all of the tapas you have left over in the fridge. It’s filling, bursting with Spanish flavour ,and won’t leave you feeling bloated in that bikini later. (Serves two)
