Middle Eastern Lamb Tart

A friend messaged me the other day telling me she needed something to cook and without even thinking twice suggested this Lamb Tart which was extremely easy to make and full of flavours that I love. Perfect for a Wednesday or Thursday night meals and was found on the wonderful Delicious website that I often…

Spiced Carrot Cake with Ricotta Icing

Whenever I cook for friends I always feel guilty if there isn’t something after dinner. Whether it be cheese, ice cream or something baked. I was lucky enough to have had dinner with one of the girls during the week who commented on how much she loved carrot cake and having recently discovered and fallen…

Chocolate Mousse

Is there anybody else out there who has always thought it wasteful pouring the liquid from tinned items down the sink? Sometimes I think maybe I should keep the brine in case there are any leftover beans/chickpeas when I’m finished or I wonder if I could use this for something else? Maybe I’m just a…

Chocolate Breakfast Bowl

The Easter long weekend – a four day holiday meant for spending time with family and friends out in the sun before the Winter months take that freedom away. Instead, I was stuck indoors writing an assignment that I wasn’t too thrilled about! My emotions and diet reflected that also but did my best to…

Do we love food more than we love ourselves?

I don’t know about you but I know I’ve been guilty of “loving food too much” when talking about weight loss or clothes becoming that little bit tighter around the tummy. If you’re not guilty of saying it yourself, I am sure you have heard someone say it. Why do we admit to loving food…

Protein Pancakes with PB, Banana & Maple Syrup

There’s no other better way to start the day then a healthy, fulfilling, protein rich breakfast! With an assignment due date lingering, my procrastination levels took a whole new level by preparing these to-die-for (if I may say so) pancakes. I have been admiring a few different blogs of late and will share recipes from…

A feast fit for the newly engaged…

Exciting times call for a delicious yet simple feast. One of my dearest friends recently got engaged and as I hadn’t seen her for quite some time and wanted the time to catch up properly, needed to whip up something easy that wouldn’t take my attention away from the new bling! I can’t remember how…

Eat to live, not live to eat

Food! Without it we wouldn’t survive but while it provides so much nutrients and energy for our bodies and our minds sometimes it can be our worst enemy, like  a bad relationship. A relationship that plays endless mind games, leave you feeling worthless and like you have absolutely no control. All of these, something I…
