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…

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….

Korean Chicken Wings

Looking for something a little different this weekend? Try these Korean chicken wings and you won’t be disappointed. Sticky, spicy chicken wings that will leave you wanting more. The special ingredient that makes these wings so delicious is a Korean spice paste called Gochujang. The spicy yet sweet flavour is unbelievable and transforms these wings…

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…

Sausage and egg McMuffin breakfast

On a lazy bank holiday Monday, why not try and make your own McDonalds breakfast? It’s probably healthier (kind of), cheaper and at least you know what you are eating! I’ll admit, I have had a cheeky McDonalds breakfast before and as tasty as it is, you always feel a bit guilty and sluggish afterwards….

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….

It’s Pancake Day!

I love pancake day! Or Shrove Tuesday…I’ll be honest, I don’t really know the meaning behind it but if it means that I am socially encouraged to eat pancakes then so be it. I guess I am just a conformist. I went for the sweet option this morning, with lemon, sugar and blueberries but you…

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! I’ve never tried one of those recipes that replaces every normal ingredient for something exotic and hard to find because I simply can’t be bothered to look for┬áthese…
