Hello,  I'm Emma

and I am the food and flavour lover that created this Blog. I'm so pleased you're here!


Have a nosey around for some recipes that I find delicious (even if I do say so myself) and some meal inspiration. Or feel free to look at photos of food and drool. I do that a lot, probably too much.


I like to think that this is a balanced mixture of health and indulgence. That's how life should be, right?

Honey Roasted Squash and Carrot Soup

Autumn is here and the days are getting darker and colder. This bowl of silky soup is a perfect evening pick me up.

Servings 4

10 Minutes Preparation Time

50 Minutes Cooking Time


1 Butternut Squash

4 Carrots

2tbs Olive Oil

2tbs Honey

1/2tbs Chilli Flakes

500ml Vegetable Stock



- Start by preheating the oven to 180c/350f.

- Next, prepare your vegetables. Peel and chop the squash and carrots. They want to be an even size to ensure that they roast evenly.

- Add the vegetables to an oven proof tray and drizzle with the oil and honey and season. Mix the vegetables into the liquids and make sure they are all coated.

- Cook in the oven for 30-40 minutes. It doesn't matter if they are not fully softened, but they should have started to develop a lovely roasted colour and little brown edges.

- Now, add the stock into a pan and put over a low/medium heat. Add the roasted vegetables into the pan and simmer until the vegetables are lovely and soft.

- Blend into a lovely soup and serve with some delicious bread. My garlic and sage focaccia goes beautifully with this as sage and squash are a match made in heaven!
