Autumny omelette

By 3 No tags Permalink 0

  Yes, I know there's still a few weeks to go before the leaves start turning brown and we start to feel a bit of a chill in the air, but there's something very autumny about this dish which had me yearning for those long chilly nights by the heater clutching a mug of hot cocoa. It ...

Some of you may know I'm back on my healthy eating regime. I'm on a mission to eat lots more fruit and veggies, drink lots more water, eat lots more good protein and fibre... you know how it is. Last week, my friend Jamie came over to my place for a dinner and a chat. I've ...

Last week, my friend Miriam organised a Moroccan-themed bring-your-own-dish party at her place.

Sometimes, we all need a bit of comfort food. There are days when salad just won't do and you don't really feel like spending a long time in the kitchen. It can be really easy to get some frozen burgers and chips out of the freezer and plonk them in the oven, but as I've ...

Teriyaki and sesame beef

By 1 No tags Permalink 0

I love cooking. I especially love cooking Asian food. There's an incredible smell of spices filling my kitchen and everything happens fast, on high heat. And it's also pretty healthy - full of fresh meat and vegetables. Which is good, seeing as I'm currently on a healthy eating regime where almost all the food I ...
