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…

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….

Banana and Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love to bake but sometimes I think my waistline could do without it. There’s nothing wrong with a little cake, but if I can make it a little lighter I will. I’m not a huge fan of over complicated recipes that ask for strange ingredients to make it healthier. Also I’m a little bored…

Kimchi Stir Fry Noodles

Stir fry is one of my favourite weeknight meals. It’s easy, fast and healthy. Just chop up lots of veg and chuck it into a screaming hot pan. I tend to only make Chinese stir fry’s so this time I decided to mix it up and try a Korean stir fry and it was amazing!!…

Paneer Burger

It’s been a little while since I’ve cooked something up for my blog. With lockdown ending, work getting busier and a toddler, life seems to be very busy! It’s been great though, we can finally see our families and friends and feel a sense of normality. I’ve slowly found the courage to eat out recently…

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…
