I personally love a good garden salad and recently have fallen in love with adding in cooled quinoa which makes it a bit more than just a salad! I say garden salad because nowadays there are so many varieties of salad and this is a bit more than just a few sad leaves on a plate.

I have been enjoying recently my version of a sausage egg mcmuffin the McGlory, which is interesting since that isn’t even something I would pick on the breakfast menu! But after a few tweaks I think it is pretty perfect! But I will let you ultimately decide. Read more

Who doesn’t enjoy a tart of some description (ooh er!) but sometimes you just don’t have the energy or time to put in making one from scratch. Not that I know many people who make their own puff pastry! But in a pinch when I can’t be bothered to make my own shortcrust pastry like I do for quiche. I buy puff pastry, chuck some toppings on and stick it in the oven for 15 minutes or so and voila!

So Louise has chosen mushrooms for the last week of maSTOMAchef which to most ostomates strikes the fear of blockage into them!
