I make no secret of the fact that most of my cooking is Asian-inspired. But lately I’ve been in a bit of a rut, cooking the same thing over and over again. So last week I decided to shift continents, say hello to Africa and cook up a Moroccan-inspired lamb dish for dinner, complete with […]
What’s your favourite curry to order from your local Indian? I am guessing that many of you might opt for a Dhansak. In our household we will often add a tasty lamb dhansak to our order. I do love that spicy, tangy and sour curry and hello lentils! We know I do love a good […]
I have spotted kale crisps or chips making the rounds on the internet for a while now and they’ve been on my recipe to do list for a while. And now I’ve finally knocked up a batch I can’t believe I have waited so long! Kale crisps are delicious!
Mexican Spicy Pork is a recipe I conjured up last Summer. It’s a thick minced pork dish served in fresh green cos lettuce ‘wraps’. The contrast in the texture and flavours is wonderful. It’s a messy yet fun dinner to serve up for all the family, as long as you’re happy with a bit of […]
The other day I tweeted that I must be the only person in the world who gets excited about lentils. I freaking love the stuff. But to my surprise I received a bunch of replies agreeing with me. Hoorah! I’m not a crazy lentil loving lady, well at least, I’m not alone in my lentil […]

I like my salads to have a bit of something about them, y’know?! A sad looking cucumber and iceberg lettuce is just not going to cut it. And for many years I was followed the Bart Simpson philosophy of ‘you don’t make friends with salad…’ However, being a grown-up now (kinda) I have found that […]
Cake! Booze! Spice! Three awesome things all rolled into one delicious entity. Rum and Ginger Cake will make your January a better month. It’s sweetly spiced with a dreamy boozey syrup and it will be the perfect accompaniment for the hot beverage of your choice.
I made this delicious tapas dish for a New Year’s Eve Spanish-themed pot luck dinner we attended last week. It went down a treat! And unsurprisingly there were no leftovers. Oh my, chorizo is just too darn tasty. And this dish is super-simple to make (simple yet tasty recipes are my favourite). I prepared this […]
