Welcome to my blog, you’ll find recipes from Ireland, France and beyond. The emphasis is on cheap and cheerful food that’s simple enough to make. I’ll try and use local ingredients and in season where I can. Follow me and I’ll post a new recipe each week, or maybe more. You can find me on twitter too… @RecessionBites1
This year I have to start cutting my expenses with a view to completing a personal project over the next couple of years. I’ve taken a look at my budget and I spend way too much money on food. So I’m going to try and amend my ways. It was suggested (thank you Caroline King!) that myself and Guy Le Jeune should start a blog and share and swap our recipes as we both enjoy cooking and eating!
I’m French with some Carribbean background and so I like a fair bit of spice in my food. I’m a bit lazy too so I like it all fairly simple and quick to make. Cooking is therapeutic but I’m not about spending whole days in the kitchen.
I’ve also been in living in Ireland for over 15 years now so my cooking style has definitely evolved!
So as I go and find my way around a leaner lifestyle I thought I’d share my recipes and tribulations.
