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…

Vegan Stuffed Peppers

My husband and I try to eat a vegan/vegetarian meal at least a couple of times a week, as I believe that we don’t need to eat so much meat and fish all week long. Plus it’s cheaper! Eating a vegetarian meal is not a compromise, they can be delicious and satisfying. This recipe is…

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?

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…
