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…

The secret to super smooth Hummus!

Yes that’s right. I have the secret! Although it’s not quite a secret, as it’s all over the internet but I recently discovered a small but vital tip to smooth hummus. I often eat really smooth hummus in Turkish or Lebanese restaurants and cannot get enough of it. I love this creamy dip that goes…

Sri Lanka…A beautiful country :)

Who would have thought that a ‘small’ country like Sri Lanka would have so much to offer? My husband and I recently visited this beautiful island and immediately fell in love with it. The hustle and bustle of the busy roads, with street vendors on the side selling anything from fresh fruit and veg to…

Grilled Lime and Chipotle Salmon Tacos

I haven’t disappeared! I realise I haven’t posted anything for a very long time and I think it’s time I made up for that. How about something fresh and exciting? I love making Mexican food, but there is only so many chicken fajitas I can eat. So I thought I would give this a try….

Healthy Carrot Muffins

So you see the word ‘healthy’ before something that is supposed to be a treat, and you automatically think it is going to be horrible right? Wrong!

Have you ever tried making your own sausage rolls? They are so easy and a lot tastier than some of those ready made ones you find in the supermarkets. Making your own means you can add whatever flavour you want and you know what goes into them. No hidden nasty ingredients! All you need is…

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Happy new year all ­čÖé As we get into January, all I seem to see is diet adverts, documentaries, books and more. Diet, diet, diet…boring! Let’s be honest, they don’t last long. Why not just eat a healthy balanced diet throughout the year and have a treat every so often, or in my case more…

Chinese steamed buns…yum!

It’s the best time of the year again! For me, Christmas is a time to try lots of different recipes and push the boat out. Whether you are having family and friends over or simply want to have a special dinner before the big day, I think trying something new is great fun. Chinese steamed…

Blueberries…a tasty topping!

We all know that blueberries are super healthy for us, but I have to admit I don’t eat them enough. They can be a bit expensive but I do think are worth it. I bought some recently and they are like tiny bullets of sweetness. Delicious! Of course, the baker in me wanted to cover…
