There’s a bit of action with pots and pans required for this dish, but it’s pretty easy to do none-the-less.
Barley has become one of my favourite comfort foods, not just cooked in soup, but added to a stew, threaded through a roasted vegetable salad or steamed in a pilaf.
Cooking pears in a slow cooker produces a perfect result – you’ll never go back to poaching pears once you try it.
When that cold wind blows, reach for the soup pot!
Comfort food in a bowl – barley pilaff is great with a roast chicken, but it’s also pretty good on its own!

Come and titillate you senses!
Here you go – layer up your breakfast in a glass for a life less ordinary.

Scented with orange, with a nutty crunch of walnuts and sweet rich taste of dates, these scones served warm with a pot of tea are just the ticket for Mother’s Day.
Dates are seriously good for you. True!
I make these in a slow cooker, but you could cook them slowly in a deep heavy-based casserole. Oh, and these are exquisite by the way.
Fried potatoes, smoked fish, herbs and flowing egg yolks equals a certain kind of deliciousness that you might think is the domain of Sunday cafés offering brunch. Nah! It’s so easy to make at home.
