Restaurant Shoot

I love shooting restaurants and cafes. There’s something about the hustle and bustle of a restaurant that makes my job so much fun. Restaurants are very similar to a swan; calm and relaxing to the eye but what you don’t see is all the hard work underneath the water. As customers, we don’t always see…

Masala Lamb Steak and Okra Fries

Lamb steak is a treat for us. It’s something that feels a little special because we don’t eat it often and leaves us feeling lie we have indulged. Steak is something we normally associate with restaurants, but it is so simple to do at home too. And it’s a great date night meal! I’ve never…

Coconut Tadka Dal (Vegan)

I am the first to admit that I can’t seem to sustain a Vegan diet for good, let alone a month! But Veganuary is a great opportunity to try and cut back on meat and dairy and the recent trend over the years has really made us think about what we eat. For me and…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Slow Cooked Indian Spiced Shoulder of Lamb

Easter is coming up this weekend and I am so excited. I love everything about this holiday from the beautiful Spring weather to hot cross buns and copious amounts of chocolate. There’s just something about this time of year that puts a ‘spring’ in your step. Sorry. One of my other favourite things to eat…
