If it isn’t obvious by now, I live off grains. I could sustain myself on a variety of grains or pastas with an assortment of roasted vegetables. My husband on the other hand, really only wants meat. He’s a good sport and humours my would-be vegetarianism fairly frequently, but it’s not often that I make […]
There are recipes that make you feel like you could run a marathon, simply because of the energy and nutrition they provide you with. Then, there are recipes that make you feel like putting on sweatpants, getting comfy in front of the fire and never leaving the house. Chrissy Teigen’s Mac & Cheese is one […]
I endeavoured to make gnocchi last weekend. How could it be that difficult, I thought. It wasn’t really. What else would I be doing with that time, I wondered. And so I set off to find a seemingly easy to follow gnocchi recipe. I did find one, by googling “Jamie Oliver gnocchi recipe”. You can […]
Possibly an exaggeration, but ultimately, that’s the kind of dinner I’m looking for during the week. Today’s recipe came about somewhat haphazardly when wandering through the aisles of our new local grocery store.

Today’s recipe is for Mango Apple Ceviche and it’s really good. It’s from the new Smitten Kitchen cookbook, which […]
Kale. How do you feel about kale? This following recipe is a super easy recipe for a simple kale salad. It requires minimal effort, but is quite filling and, without a doubt, healthy! I enjoy it as a main, but it could easily be a great accompaniment to a meal. This is a similar, but […]
Hello there. I took some time off. I was in a bit of a recipe rut again. It’s either feast or famine when it comes to recipes, but I’m back. I’m back with a real hit. A new favourite, actually. It’s for rice with poached eggs. I know, it sounds extremely boring and uneventful. It […]
Halloumi is great. It isn’t super popular, so if you haven’t tried it, it’s kind of like a squeaky, salty cheese that really needs to be fried to be appreciated. I’m playing catch-up on posts after a ridiculously busy week of work and 4 days with commutes home exceeding an hour and a quarter. Not […]
