Chipotle Veggie Chilli Con Carne

I absolutely love Mexican food but sometimes get a little bored with the same old combinations. This veggie chilli con carne is certainly not boring and is definitely one to try. Spicy, smokey and hearty, this chilli is made with mixed beans and vegetables and therefore super healthy too (unless you top it with too…

Asian Steamed Sea Bass

Sea bass is my absolute favourite fish. It’s so delicate and versatile. I normally pan fry fillets or oven cook a whole sea bass, but this time I decided to try something different, and oh my was it worth it. I steamed the sea bass fillets in greaseproof paper parcels and the fish came out…

Chicken Toad in the Hole

Toad in the hole is a British classic. A giant Yorkshire pudding with sausages baked in the middle? Yes please. Although sausages are not great for the waistline. We don’t often eat sausages but I really wanted toad in the hole so I thought, why not put something else in the middle? That’s how chicken…

Healthier Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs

Who doesn’t love spaghetti and meatballs? It’s such a comforting dish that makes you feel great. But I decided to make a slighter healthier and lighter version. Only because I have consumed nearly an entire chocolate orange cake. But oh well. Balanced diet and all. I used lean turkey mince and it tasted great. I…

Breakfast Parathas

Breakfast Parathas on a Sunday morning is one of my best childhood memories. I would wake up to the smell of my Mum cooking them in the kitchen, and it would make me run down the stairs just so I could eat them hot off the fryer. Now every woman I know has a different…

Grilled Prawn Linguine

If you want a really quick but luxurious and satisfying dish, this is one for you. I love this dish because it feels slightly posh like something you would find in an Italian restaurant, but actually is very easy and accessible to make at home. There’s all sorts of recipes out there, but as you…

Sunday Slow Cooked Lamb Stew

Everyone loves a lazy Sunday, or at least a Sunday when you are not slaving away in the kitchen all day long. To me its a day to catch up on everything that I don’t get to do during the week and to find time to take a long walk by the canal, bake a…

Poached eggs, Smashed Avocado and Sour Dough Toast

Weekends are about lazy mornings and great food in my eyes. After a busy week at work, I long to make something comforting that requires a bit more time on a Saturday or Sunday morning. This is not exactly a recipe as you might have seen this everywhere but I had to share it with…

Chicken and Mushroom Roulade wrapped in Parma Ham

I know what you are thinking, ‘that sounds posh!’ But it really isn’t. It’s a great dish to make on the weekend and impress your friends and it can be prepared in advance. I just made this recipe based on what was in my fridge, and you can do the same. Chicken is so versatile…

Healthy Thai Salmon Fishcakes

It’s January and we are all trying to eat a bit lighter after an indulgent December. No more mince pies, cheese boards and pork pies! However there is nothing to say that food has to be boring in January. It’s not all lettuce and boiled eggs. I made Thai salmon fishcakes for dinner and served…
