The world’s quickest green pea soup recipe
Bold claim perhaps. But I know of no made-from-scratch dinner that is as quick to make as this green pea soup. I timed it, and without rushing, I made it in 10 minutes, start to finish, including bringing the water to a boil. It’s also totally delicious, and very healthy!

A real juicy Norwegian cod burger recipe
I so love a great burger. But some times you want something a little bit lighter. Maybe even something a little bit, dare I say it, healthy? This burger is it, but it still checks all the right boxes, and it still feels utterly sinful to eat!
