Spaghetti Pomodoro

Is there anything more comforting than a bowl of pasta? A bowl of pasta coated in a fragrant tomato sauce topped with parmesan cheese, basil and extra virgin olive oil. I’m not sure there is, especially on a rainy day. A trip down memory lane… Spaghetti Pomodoro has been one of my favourite dishes ever…

Strawberries and Cream

Who is enjoying Wimbledon this year? I absolutely love watching Wimbledon. I have followed it for years as my Dad got me interested in it and I became more and more hooked. We used to sit for long afternoons eating popcorn and watching nervously as the contestants battled it out. I love how professional the…

Greek Lamb Burger with Chilli Halloumi

Hello everyone ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you’re all well! I’ve been a little MIA recently. Truth is I’ve been super busy at work (which I’m very grateful for) and decided to take a little break. My family and I managed to go on our first holiday to Crete a couple of weeks ago. With all the…

Puris and Masala Eggs

This is possibly one of my favourite breakfast dishes. One however, that I don’t get to eat often as it was always something that either my Mum, grandma or aunt made. It’s a typical Sunday morning breakfast eaten with all the family. I always talk about how food can bring back nostalgic memories and puris…

Hot Cross Buns – Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to all those celebrating ๐Ÿ™‚ What do you have planned this weekend? I realise itโ€™s been a little while since Iโ€™ve posted on here. What can I say, keeping up with social media amongst work and home life is tough. I try my best to be present on social media but sometimes it…

Cherry, Hazelnut and Nutella Pancakes

Happy Pancake Day! I’ve been writing pancake day posts on my blog for a few years now and I seem to always mention that I love English pancakes. And it’s still true, I do! What’s not to love? Thin pancakes that are soft in the middle and a little crispy on the edges, ready for…

Aloo and Spinach Paratha

There’s something quite special about comfort food and how it can take you back to a certain time in your life. It can spark the fondest of memories and transport you back to a happy place. To me, food can awaken the senses; the smell, the taste and the sight of a dish can ignite…

Mussels and Fries

Mussels are in season right now and up until a few years ago I had never tried them. I was never great at trying different shellfish apart from prawns and lobster (especially after a bad experience with an oyster!) However my husband convinced me to try them one day on holiday in Canada and I…

Chinese Dumplings

It’s Chinese New Year (or Lunar New Year) today so I thought why not make some Chinese dumplings to go with it? After all there’s nothing more delicious than a dumpling is there? A hot, steamy little parcel filled with delicious and fragrant goodness. I could eat them all day long. Whether fried, steamed or…

About me

Welcome back! Is it a little too late in January to say happy new year? I think so. Whoops! Regardless, I hope you all had a great break over Christmas and New Years. As you may have noticed, I took a longer break than expected from blogging and social media. I decided to switch off…
