I am beyond obsessed with food! I spend all week trawling through websites, blogs & cookbooks for inspiration as to what Iâ€™m going to make over the weekend! The week canâ€™t go fast enough â€“ all I want to do is cook. I donâ€™t follow recipes to the letter â€“ I prefer to use them as inspiration and try to make them my own. To attend Ballymaloe Cookery School is on my bucket list â€“ so to win this amazing prize would truly be a dream come true. PICK ME, PICK ME, PICK ME!

My soupy stew is like a hug in a bowl! Perfect for the crisp weather weâ€™re having at the moment where all you want to do is warm up with a big, comforting bowl of something delicious! This dish is made in the one pot too â€“ so hardly any washing up! Onion, celery, carrot some garlic and freshly chopped rosemary act as a base for the soupy stew. The pumpkin gives the dish a lovely sweetness, while the lentils temper that sweetness somewhat whilst also acting to thicken the soup. Yum!
