Gujarati Dhokla

Even though there are so many exciting recipes and cuisines out there to try, nothing beats the food you grew up on. The food that makes you happy and creates a sense of nostalgia. The food that takes you back home. My lovely Aunty sent me some homemade food the other day (abiding by social…

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…

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? 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…

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…
