Barfi Bites

How amazing do these Barfi bites look? I can safely say I didn’t make them, but ordered them from a local company called Barfi Bites who specialise in making luxury Barfi coated in Belgian chocolate. Incredible! For those of you who don’t know, Barfi is a traditional Indian sweet made from milk powder and can…

Chicken Tostadas

Did somebody say Mexican food? Yes please. Mexican food is so exciting. I love all the colours and textures and how it can bring people together. My husband and I are always eating tacos, fajitas, enchiladas etc but sometimes it can get repetitive. So this time I decided to try something a little different. What…

Wild Garlic and Smoked Salmon Fishcakes

Wild garlic is in season and seems to be the craze right now. And so it should be, its delicious! I’m lucky enough to have a mother in law who planted some wild garlic in my garden and it’s growing so well. No thanks to me, I have zero gardening skills. Maybe one day I…

Homemade Sushi and Edamame Beans

I’ve always loved sushi but I’ve never tried making it at home. It’s something I always thought was best eaten in a restaurant or from a store. I saw this Yutaka Sushi Roll Kit in Sainsbury’s and I thought why not, it sounded like fun. This kit was brilliant. Everything was so easy and had…

Chorizo Arancini

Risotto is one of our common weekday meals, but I always make too much. Always! So instead of just eating it for lunch the next day, I thought I would make arancini. Arancini is risotto shaped into balls, coated in breadcrumbs and then deep fried. But I didn’t want to deep fry mine so I…

Urad Daal (Black Lentil Daal)

I hope you’ve all had a great bank holiday weekend. What is going on with the weather? Snow in April? Now I’ve seen it all. Bring back the sun please, I’m cold. If you’re anything like me, you’ve been over indulging the past few days. As lovely as it was, I now crave some simple…

Happy Mother’s Day :)

Happy Mother’s Day to all Mums! Even though we are still in lockdown and may not be with our loved ones this Sunday, let’s take comfort in knowing we will hopefully be with our nearest and dearest very soon. At least we have technology to connect us 🙂 For those of you who know me…

Fish Burgers with Harissa Mayo

I have your Friday night fakeaway ready for you! Yes this is a very naughty recipe, but let’s just put that aside. Let’s focus on the positives here. Homemade crispy chip shop style fish, spicy harissa mayonnaise with crisp shredded lettuce and a soft brioche bun, served with homemade chips. Yes please! If we can’t…

Grilled Masala Cheese Sandwich

Who doesn’t love a grilled cheese sandwich? Oozy, warm and oh so naughty. This sandwich is inspired by my trip to Mumbai, where I tasted the best cheese sandwich ever. It was spicy and indulgent and seeing as I won’t be going back any time soon, I decided to give it a go myself. This…

Sausage Pizza

Did anyone catch Jamie Oliver’s Keep Cooking Family Favourites this week? He made this amazing Sausage Pizza and I just had to try it! It was a quick pizza with a sun-dried tomato pesto base, topped with sausage meatballs, mozzarella, red onions, pine nuts, rosemary and wait for it…grapes! Yes I know I was shocked…
