Rocket & Pomegranate Salad

Tis the season…fa la la la la etc. Have you ever noticed that men seem to enjoy the silly season far more than the ladies? Perhaps that’s because the lion share of duties seems to fall squarely on the shoulders of feminine persuasion. Well, for the next few posts I’m going to pop up some … Continue reading

Steak & Pomegranate Salad with salsa verde and feta cream

I know spring is in the air when the pomegranates start making their way onto my plate. I love their crunch and their juicy flavour and the fact that they are seriously good for you.

Sticky Chicken with Asian Slaw and Sesame Dressing

I added a new gadget to my ever growing stash in the kitchen. I’ve been meaning to buy a mandoline for quite some time.

I’m about to pop over to Fiji for a relaxing family holiday…..soak up some sun (and some Mojito’s)…and of course partake in some fresh, local produce. One thing I’m really looking forward to (apart from the mojito’s) is the array of fresh seafood and fish. So before I embark, here is a lovely little fish … Continue reading

Cajun salmon with Corn Salsa

Ah Salmon….what’s not to love?! The omega 3 fats from these lovely oily pieces of goodness are like the ultimate anti-ageing nutrient. They keep your brain sharp (they are an integral part of the structure of your brains tissues), they help to lower your blood pressure and triglycerides, they reduce blood clotting…..put those 3 together … Continue reading

Banana blueberry & oat muffins

Now Lord knows I’m not the finest baker in the land. Truth be told, I’m more of a savoury girl myself, but I have been practising. Feeling buoyed after my recent Banana Bread success I sought to capitalise on my baking cred and after some experimentation (read disaster ending in purple sugarless muffins) I’ve come … Continue reading

Chicken Meatball Red Curry

As promised, here is recipe number 2 in the chicken meatball collection. This recipe is written as a stand alone, from start to finish, whole kit and caboodle recipe but if you have children and they haven’t quite developed their spicy tastebuds yet, I’ve developed this recipe to go along with the previous Spaghetti & … Continue reading

Spaghetti & Chicken Meatballs

When you love food as much as I do and you have children, it can sometimes be hard to satisfy the adult AND the child palate. I don’t know about you, but I get a little sick of making two separate meals, so at least a couple of times a week I like to make … Continue reading
