Recipe: Vegan Choc Chip Cookies

Just because it is a vegan recipe, doesn’t mean it can’t taste like a normal cookie, right? Indeed. This recipe is fantastic. Packed with chocolate, the cookies also taste a little bit nutty from the use of whole wheat flour. Not only is the recipe vegan, it is also great because it requires no beating…

Recipe: Hearty lentil soup

I’m not going to lie, soup can be SO boring. I love soup fresh from the stove, but usually I find that when it is heated as leftovers or worse, from a can, it is a meal that I don’t have much appetite for. Not this recipe though, this one is more of a stew….

Recipe: Shakshuka

Shakshuka is one of those delicious, warming meals that I can almost never say no to when I see it on a brunch menu.  It is also a perfect ‘breakfast for dinner’ meal too. I love it any time of the day. I’ve played with making it in the past – it should be easy…

Recipe: Banana Bread

  I watched my flatmate make banana bread recently and smelling the delicious aromas of the banana bread in the oven made me want to cook it for myself. It is an ideal way to use up bananas that are beyond their best, and so much more fool-proof than baking a cake. These days I…

Recipe: Potato Bake

This is not just your boring old potato bake. This potato bake is oozing with cheese, with creaminess, and some good ol’ fashioned ‘erbs. It is so ridiculously tasty that I swear I could just eat it as a main dish, but I try not to, and to date, have only made it as a…

Recipe: Banoffee Pie

Growing up, banoffee pie was always a favourite dessert of mine. Lonestar, a massive chain restaurant serving southern U.S. style food used to have it on its menu (and probably still does); in my eyes it was always the stand-out dessert. Banoffee nails the mixture of some of my favourite foods and textures: fresh banana,…

Recipe: Scarborough Fair Chicken

Oh my goodness, this recipe of Chelsea Winter’s is absolutely to die for. The first time I tried it my flatmates had cooked dinner for my boyfriend and I; as it was cooking we could just smell the delicious herbs and bacon and creaminess wafting down the hallway. The meal was a raging success, and…

Recipe: Chicken Saagwala

On my trip to India I made it a goal to order something different every meal. You’ll be pleased to know that I didn’t order the same curry dish twice! One of the healthier options that I came across (most Indian curries use a stack of cream, and little to no vegetables) was the saagwala:…

Recipe: Mama’s Homemade Muesli

I absolutely ADORE the muesli my mum makes. I have tried so many times to replicate it, because surely, how hard can muesli be! And although I have made loads of delicious muesli in my time, none of them ever seem to match what my mum makes. Finally, I managed to coax the recipe out…

Recipe: Butter chicken (healthy)

We all love ourselves a good ol’ butter chicken, evidenced by the fact that I have posted two recipes on my blog! Butter chicken can be pretty indulgent, however not with this recipe. This recipe is surprisingly light without compromising any of the rich flavours that butter chicken offers – after all, it’s mostly in…
