Homemade Chilli Jam with Grilled King Prawns

Chilli jam! What’s not to love? A sweet and spicy condiment that enhances so many dishes. I’ve tried it in restaurants before and it is absolutely delicious. I really wanted to try and make it myself so I decided to give it a go. It’s surprisingly easy! I’ve been so busy recently that it was…

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…

Birthday Cake!

Did somebody say cake? It was my daughters 2nd birthday yesterday. Two years have flown past. I know everybody says they grow up quick but gosh I didn’t realise it was this quick. My little one is now the boss of the house. From the moment we wake up it’s all go, hopping from one…

Blackberry and Chocolate Soufflé

I realise I am a bit late to the blackberry party but I made this last week and was feeling rather chuffed with myself. You hear the word soufflé and most people (unless you are a whizz kid in the kitchen) shudder at the thought. This is what happened to me not so long ago….

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…

Slow Cooked Lamb Ragu

I’m not sure about you, but I was getting ready for Autumn by getting my cardigans out and secretly thinking about Christmas. And then boom. Summer! Glorious sunshine sent me into a blind panic to find my sunglasses and shorts. It was absolutely beautiful and although brief, I am grateful for the few days of…

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!!…

Coconut, Raspberry and Hazelnut Brownies

I absolutely love to bake. There’s something very special about mixing a few ingredients, popping it in the oven and seeing it transform into something warm and delicious. I used to bake a lot but recently struggle to find the time to do so. I have been attending lots of weddings and have been eating…
