Quick and Easy Lentil Bolognese

While I was away on my travels Martin was left to fend for himself and when I got back I was presented with some fabulous photos of the meals he had made, including this delicious looking lentil bolognese. So thankfully I’ve got some recipes to give you whilst I get back into my kitchen and start creating again! I’m trying to get my sister to part with her full recipe for stuffed vine leaves that she made for me while I was visiting, they were sensational and her mother in-law made me a vegetable stuffed flat bread that was just […]

Spicy Samosa Bake with Fresh Salad and Mango Chutney

I made this samosa bake when we had our guest over as a quick lunch, it’s crazy tasty and is quite substantial as well, I was pretty stuffed afterwards! It fed us for 2 days and like most curries it was even more delicious on the second day! So I am back from my visit to my sisters, I had a great time and met my little nephew and me being the bumbling aunty that I am managed to smack the poor little guy’s head on the car door when they met me from the airport…. how’s that for an […]

Dark Chocolate Chip Muffins

Baking has quickly become one of my favourite things to do at the weekends and this time I went pretty simple with these delicious Dark Chocolate Chip Muffins. These are incredibly tasty and dare I say it, super moreish, so beware! These could easily be served for dessert with a nice dollop of home made ice cream or drizzled in a dark chocolate sauce, but we kept it au naturale and had them with a cup of coffee, so remember to add them to your Afternoon Tea list! I’m offski early tomorrow morning, my travelling starts at 8am and I […]

Mushroom & Spinach Veggie Burgers with Spicy Potato Cubes, Mango Caramelised Onions and Crushed Peas

Oh I do love Friday night “burger night” the more I do burgers the quicker I seem to get at preparing them. I remember when I first started, it would take me about 90 minutes to put this meal together, I’m not sure why, maybe I’m just more comfortable in the kitchen now and know what I need to do and saving time on not having to rectify silly mistakes! I was getting a little tired with my usual spicy wedges, so thought I’m mix it up a bit with these spicy potato cubes, I love my madras curry powder […]

Raw Kiwi & Coconut Tarts with Dark Chocolate Almond Drizzle

I love how easy raw desserts are, you can be as adventurous as you like and when you taste it along the way, you know that’s how it’s still going to taste when you serve it up. There’s been a few times I’ve baked pies and once it’s cooked I’ve thought, maybe I should have used a little more maple, or perhaps should have used more cinnamon…. but with raw desserts, what you see, is what you get and wow, is this Kiwi and Coconut Tart a great choice for something fresh, tasty and a little tart…(do you see what […]

Lentil & 3 Bean Chili with Homemade Spicy Tortilla Chips, Salsa & Guacamole

It was our friends last meal with us last night before heading home today so I thought I do the boys a massive spicy chili before they settled down for an evening of football. I thought about buying a bag of tortilla chips…. but where’s the fun in that, I wanted to give it a go making my own. This is a very simple chili recipe and if you’re not making your own tortilla chips will take you less than 40 minutes to prepare and serve, so a great “go to” recipe if you need a feast, fast! On a […]
