Feel-good food for grey and busy days
The kitchen has always been my happy place - it's the only place I feel completely at ease. Cooking has got me through some proper tough times! It also helps me slow down, take a breath and take stock.
These recipes are all dishes that make me smile - they give me joy and I want to share that joy with you. From my go-to Chicken Nuggets and Brown Butter Macaroni Cheese to my Cinnamon Pastry Twists, you'll find all my everyday favs here.
I've included quick meals for those days when you just can't think about what to cook, and my 'therapy' recipes that are good for distracting a worried mind - at least for a while.
Take care of yourself.

Candice Brown is the winner of The Great British Bake Off 2016, a cookbook author, Sunday Times columnist, and pub landlady.
Born in North London, Candice grew up in the pubs that her parents ran - and that she famously immortalized in gingerbread for her most talked about showstopper - always chipping in when needed, be it pulling pints or mopping floors.
Since her GBBO victory, Candice has taken on numerous new challenges including live food festival demonstrations, TV appearances, virtual cookalongs, and supporting charities that are close to her heart.
In December 2018 Candice, together with her brother Ben, took the keys to The Greenman Pub in Eversholt.
STAFF PICK: (LUCY'S CHOICE)
"I really enjoyed watching Candice on Bake Off – she was always smiling, and her food was incredible, so I was delighted to get a chance to look through her latest cookery book, Happy Cooking.
Packed with deceptively simple snack ideas (toasties, fish fingers, pancakes), cakes and bakes, and (my favourite!) the incredible hot bread boats with eggs and cheese – Khatchapuri – which will be my go-to weekend treat for a long time to come.
There really is something for everyone in this book, the photography is gorgeous, and the recipes exude Candice’s signature positivity and can-do approach. You’ll love it if you love to cook."
