Coconut Tadka Dal (Vegan)

I am the first to admit that I can’t seem to sustain a Vegan diet for good, let alone a month! But Veganuary is a great opportunity to try and cut back on meat and dairy and the recent trend over the years has really made us think about what we eat. For me and…

Christmas Vegetarian Pie

Christmas is soon upon us, and although everything seems a little confusing at the moment, the one thing we can rely on is food. Plans seem to be changing daily and taking the essence away from Christmas, however I’m determined to hang on to any positivity we can at the moment. And the best way…

Chicken Kofta Scotch Egg

It really is the most wonderful time of the year! I love this festive season. The Christmas decorations, the lights and the old movies. But the thing I enjoy the most is the food! There’s nothing better than mince pies, hot chocolates and clementines. I love baking this time of year, although its a little…

Homemade Chilli Jam with Grilled King Prawns

Chilli jam! What’s not to love? A sweet and spicy condiment that enhances so many dishes. I’ve tried it in restaurants before and it is absolutely delicious. I really wanted to try and make it myself so I decided to give it a go. It’s surprisingly easy! I’ve been so busy recently that it was…

Roasted Sweet Potato, Feta and Walnut Salad

Who says salads are just for summer? I love a salad but prefer something warm during these colder days. And after indulging too much recently with Diwali and birthdays, I could do with something a little bit lighter. This is a great mid week meal and is hardly even a recipe, it’s more of a…

Diwali Preparations

I love this time of year. When the days get darker and the crisp Autumn air hits your face. The trees look so beautiful with its leaves transitioning from green to orange and red. It also means that Diwali is coming up and that means a celebration of delicious food, lights and music. Diwali is…

Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls

Happy Halloween everyone! Now although this is not exactly a spooky Halloween post, it’s inspired by the flavours that everyone is enjoying at the moment. Isn’t Autumn just beautiful? Look at these gorgeous leaves we found around our house. I just love the colours. What is Pumpkin Spice? I started to see pumpkin spice everywhere…

Blackberry and Chocolate Soufflé

I realise I am a bit late to the blackberry party but I made this last week and was feeling rather chuffed with myself. You hear the word soufflé and most people (unless you are a whizz kid in the kitchen) shudder at the thought. This is what happened to me not so long ago….

Moroccan Roast Chicken and Couscous

Well it’s been a little while since I’ve done a recipe on here, apologies! I blame tonsillitis and generally trying to balance work and home life. What a wonderful summer we just had. Yes the weather wasn’t great, but we had so much fun catching up with friends and family and attending lots of weddings….

Slow Cooked Lamb Ragu

I’m not sure about you, but I was getting ready for Autumn by getting my cardigans out and secretly thinking about Christmas. And then boom. Summer! Glorious sunshine sent me into a blind panic to find my sunglasses and shorts. It was absolutely beautiful and although brief, I am grateful for the few days of…
