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 soufflĂ© 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…

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…

Barfi Bites

How amazing do these Barfi bites look? I can safely say I didn’t make them, but ordered them from a local company called Barfi Bites who specialise in making luxury Barfi coated in Belgian chocolate. Incredible! For those of you who don’t know, Barfi is a traditional Indian sweet made from milk powder and can…

Chicken Tostadas

Did somebody say Mexican food? Yes please. Mexican food is so exciting. I love all the colours and textures and how it can bring people together. My husband and I are always eating tacos, fajitas, enchiladas etc but sometimes it can get repetitive. So this time I decided to try something a little different. What…
