DSC_0653

I love when a meal which you expect to be like every other, becomes a memorable experience your thoughts linger on for years to come. It can be something as simple as a smell, a dish or the décor that just sticks with you. I had an experience like this at a tiny hole in…

Cherry & Tahini Energy Balls

One of my closest friends who has saved me from many a recipe rut, recently mentioned that her mom made an energy ball with tahini. I am a big fan of tahini and the flavour combination of tahini, dried fruits and nuts sounded too good to pass up. I’ll admit that there was a moment…

Thai Beef Salad

This recipe is inspired by the two weeks SA and I recently spent in Cambodia and Thailand. It was one of the best trips we have been on to date (which has included over 20 countries). Everything was perfect. Beautiful beaches, amazing hotels, kind people, incredible sites and the food….oh the food. I had heard…

Roasted Red Pepper Dip

I have developed quite an addiction to dips, rarely going a day without eating some with veggies, crackers or just by the spoonful. Even in my pre diet restrictions days I preferred to make dips from scratch rather than go the store bought route. I am always amazed by the ingredient list of hummus and…

Mexican Breakfast Hash

I seem to spend a large portion of each work week dreaming of all of the delicious breakfast recipes I will make on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Unfortunately once the weekend rolls around, the mornings seem to fly by before I’ve even had a chance to crack an egg. To combat the weekend breakfast rush…

Creamy Mushroom Soup

DSC_0675

During the cold months of winter, a bowl of warm soup is guaranteed to brighten even the darkest of days. While I love a chunky soup like minestrone, I don’t think there is anything better than a creamy mushroom soup to warm you from the inside out on a cold day. Since the age of…

Chai Spiced Cookies

I am finally back in London which means it’s time for some serious Christmas baking. Each year I excitedly wait for the arrival of December 1st, when it officially becomes acceptable to break into full blown Christmas mode (and not October 15th like Marks and Spencer is trying to have you believe). What is full…
