Chicken and Vegetable Gyozas

Hello lovely readers. How are you all? Is it just me or are you also surprised that it’s May already? I know I am. As everyone seems to be getting busier this time of year, a quick meal is music to my ears. Sometimes we just need something fast but doesn’t compromise on flavour. Chicken…

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…

Happy Holi!

Today marks the Hindu festival of Holi, the festival of colour! Holi celebrates good over evil and in India is celebrated by lighting bonfires and play fighting with coloured powders and water. I’ve always dreamed of celebrating Holi in India, it looks like so much fun! All I see in Bollywood movies is streets packed…

Cherry, Hazelnut and Nutella Pancakes

Happy Pancake Day! I’ve been writing pancake day posts on my blog for a few years now and I seem to always mention that I love English pancakes. And it’s still true, I do! What’s not to love? Thin pancakes that are soft in the middle and a little crispy on the edges, ready for…

Mussels and Fries

Mussels are in season right now and up until a few years ago I had never tried them. I was never great at trying different shellfish apart from prawns and lobster (especially after a bad experience with an oyster!) However my husband convinced me to try them one day on holiday in Canada and I…

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….

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…

It’s National Fish and Chip Day!

It’s National Fish and Chip Day! The nations favourite takeaway. Is there anything better than hot fish and chips in England? Crispy batter, flaky fish and salt and vinegar chips, delicious! As much as I like to try and make mine at home, nothing beats the local chippy. I can never recreate their fish and…
