Sundried tomatoes, red peppers, and coriander quesadilla

Quesadillas are a satisfyingly simple dish. To simplify down – and REALLY simplify down, what they can be described as; they are a Mexican version of grilled cheese. They are so much more than that, the tortilla crisps up really nicely, and does not require […]

Pesto sea bass and almonds with a tropical salad

Pesto sea bass and almonds with a tropical salad

  Sea bass, I find is a great hybrid of salmon and cod. It is a white fish, so you can do a lot with the flavours and play with it, but it also has the skin on the fish that you can crisp up […]

Vegan Cabbage and Apricot Couscous

Vegan Cabbage and Apricot Couscous

This is a really great vegan recipe for couscous.  It does have just the simple ingredients of couscous, but instead the apricot goes a lovely chewy texture, with the crunch of the cabbage. I have found this can be a great recipe for a side […]

Strawberry Apricot Hot Apple Cider Recipe

Strawberry Apricot Hot Apple Cider Recipe

This recipe is super simple and easy.  That being said – once can just heat up Apple Juice and call it Apple Cider.  Not one to be outdone, and to make things too too easy, I have decided to spice it up a bit.  And […]

Valencia Orange White Hot Chocolate Recipe

Valencia Orange White Hot Chocolate Recipe

Valencia Orange white hot chocolate, it sounds fancier than it is. The only reason I have called it Valencia Orange, is because that is the flavouring I had purchased. It can be plain orange if that is the only essence which you can find. Going […]

Chicken, Broccoli, Brown and Wild Rice Tray Bake Recipe

Chicken, Broccoli, Brown and Wild Rice Tray Bake Recipe

Why tray bakes work I am weird about textures.  If a food has a weird texture that I don’t like then I just won’t eat it.  And this is how my life has been with brown rice.  People will rant and rave “it’s so healthy” […]
