I love beans as much as the next person, but we’ve slipped into a bit of a beans on cheese on toast rut, which isn’t good for anyone’s body or soul. With the responsibility of two new small people over the last couple of years, I need to get my cooking mojo back for us and them. This may help.

We live in a very nondescript street, in a semi detached house. It could be anywhere. It’s in Kent. When I’m not microwaving beans, I mother a toddler and a baby, wife a husband, teach babies to sign, google stuff about getting sick out of carpets and talk about how much I’d like to go for a walk at the weekend and how good the West Wing was.
