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…

Ever made Spatchcock Chicken?

Well things have certainly changed since I last wrote a blog post. I am now the proud mother of a 6 month old baby girl (hence the lack of blogging – forgive me) and now we are all in quarantine with a Coronavirus lingering around. What a strange time! There are so many things to…

Banana, Coconut and Lime Pancakes

It’s Pancake Day in two days! Have you thought about what pancakes you are going to make? Sweet or savoury? I love English pancakes, they are thin, soft and ready for any filling you want. I believe there are some foods in life that just make you happy, and pancakes are one of them. I…

Homemade Tandoori Chicken

You don’t always need a tandoor oven to have great tasting tandoori chicken. Although if you do have one I would be highly impressed! And jealous. Can I come over? A tandoor oven is a traditional clay oven widely used in Indian cooking that cooks food at high temperatures over charcoal. It creates the most…

Caramelised Onion and Goat’s Cheese Tart

Fancy making a vegetarian starter for a dinner party? This recipe is a winner. It uses simple ingredients and takes no effort to make, yet creates quite an impact when served. Pastry, caramelised onions and goats cheese. What a combination. The sweetness of the onions matched with the savoury goats cheese is absolutely delicious. It’s…

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…
