A More Tropical Version…

Brownie Extravaganza!

I absolutely LOVE chocolate brownie! It’s so versatile and amazingly addictive. So I decided that I would dedicate this entry to this delicious decadence. My Mum made chocolate brownies yesterday and they were soooo yummy! Crunchy on the crusts and gooey in the middle – they were the perfect texture.…

Creamy Seafood Spaghetti

Following my obsession with risotto, I decided that I should refrain from making another seafood risotto, and decided  to try and make seafood linguine. The problem was that I actually didn’t have any linguine in my cupboard, so Creamy and delicious – enjoy with a glass of chilled white wine…

Mini Crumble Delights!

When I saw that my friend Lauren had been making mini crumbles, it sounded like something I had to try myself! I got a sillicone baking set from my Aunt for Christmas, and decided to use the funky little cake cases to make some mini crumbles of my own! I…

Stuffed Mushrooms

Ok, so today I went on a bit of a mission in the kitchen (see crumble recipe coming soon!) and I decided to make stuffed mushrooms for tea! The large flat mushrooms you can buy are so versatile, and you can stuff them with just about anything! I have used…

A Passion for Seafood

If there’s one thing I love more than risotto, it’s seafood! I absolutely love any kind of seafood from prawns to scallops and octopus – you name it and I will happily scoop it up off the plate and eat it! So when I passed the fish counter in Asda,…

The ultimate indulgence

I bought some plums the other day, and realised that they were starting to get a bit ripe. Worried I wouldn’t be able to eat them before they went off, I decided that I would have a go at stewing them! And they were bloody good! So for the ultimate…

Feeding my Risotto Obsession

I can’t get enough of risotto at the moment. It’s so easy and simple to make, and uses as many or as little ingredients as you want it to! Tonight, I decided to make Mushroom and Tarragon risotto. My Mum has started me on some sort of love affair with…

A Quick Fix Meal

If you’re wondering what to cook tonight and you’re in a bit of a hurry, then this is the perfect dinner for you! To make this, I used Juvela Fibre Linguine, which is a really great make of pasta. With extra fibre it’s especially good for you, and it cooks…

Polenta…in a cake!?

So, I went home this weekend to find that my boyfriend Steve had decided to suprise me by making me a cake! This being the first cake he has ever made, I was intrigued to find out what it would taste like! (He will kill me when he sees that…

Super Cheesy Macaroni Cheese

It’s been one hell of a mental week, and I apologise for the fact I haven’t updated this for a long time! I’ve managed to get myself a job, a freelance writing job and two Uni assignments all at the same time! Needless to say, it’s been a week of…

A Quick Stir-Fry Dish

I decided tonight that I really fancied a stir fry. Trouble was, after a long day at Uni I was pretty short on food and too tired to walk to Asda, so here’s something cheap and easy I threw together using what I could find in the cupboard! For this…

Quick Chip Dip!

It’s not gonna be a very long one tonight, I’ve got a sore finger and it hurts to type! Last night I really fancied tortilla chips with something healthy (not that it matters when you accidentally-on-purpose gorge on a massive bag of doritos…oops!). I decided to recreate the salsa-type-dip that…

Boost to the Immune System!

My Mum always told me that Chicken soup, made from the whole carcass, has immense healing properties. So when my housemate made a roast for us this weekend, I decided to take the opportunity to make a immune-boosting chicken soup. And I don’t mean to be big headed, but this…

A Quick Pasta Treat!

For tea tonight I was feeling lazy and decided to make pasta! It was so simple but so good! My mum always made me a similar dish but this is my variation on it, so I will definitely give her credit for this one! So here is the recipe: Mum’s…
