Flourless Chocolate Torte

Whilst in Manchester, I had the most amazing Flourless cake at Teacup Kitchen. Rich and decadent, it was great for us chocoholics without the worry of gluten. It’s definitely a time where I need that chocolate fix so tonight, I have made my own Flourless Chocolate Torte. Naturally gluten free but also low in refined…

Hello, I’m back…

Hi fellow bloaters, First of all I’d like to apologise for being off the radar for a little. I have been lucky enough to go on two short breaks and then came back to super busy times at work so I’ve had little time to blog, and well, cook new exciting recipes. But we are…

Halloumi Salad

Halloumi, what a cheese and what a great accompaniment to a salad. Now I’m one for only eating salads at a certain time of year, simply because they don’t fill me up, especially on exercise days. Halloumi however is meaty, so being healthy and full on a budget is easy with this little addition. I…

World Health Day 2017

I wouldn’t normally post about this on a food blog but this years theme is too close to home. Depression affects millions around the world every day but it has a clever way of making you feel very alone. I’ve personally had two occasions when I’ve been diagnosed as having depression and anxiety; in my…

HOT DOGS!!!

So hot dogs. Let’s face it, most people have hot dogs out but hardly ever at home. I forgot how glorious they are. And let’s face it, it’s a very cheap meal. I can take no cooking credit for putting a Frankfurter into the microwave and shoving it in a bread roll. However, what I…

Duck Ramen

I’ve been MIA for a couple of weeks as things have been pretty manic at work. I’ve also just signed up for a Half Marathon so I will be the first to admit, being able to cook blog worthy recipes has gone down the pan. But I am back with lots of delicious recipes. I…

Blog Recognition Award

Recently I was nominated for an award for bloggers, the Blogger Recognition Award. Although I’ve been a bit busy and therefore delayed at posting this, I would like to thanks Teti for nominating me. It’s always good to hear as a new blogger that you are doing a great job and she has inspired me to make sure…

French appetizers

I have a little thing for tapas style dishes at the moment. In fact, that’s what I always crave for dinner because I know I can have little bits of my favourite things. I visited a French restaurant in Bath with my partner, Rob, last week and that inspired my cooking last night. The dishes…

Creamy Chicken and Leek Pie

So it’s Pie Week!!! Flicking through some recipes, we came across one for a Chicken and Leek Pie, that looked delicious. Back in the day when I followed recipes to the letter, the pies I cooked were pretty mediocre but this one was yummy. Sometimes going for full fat products is the only way to…

Pancake Day!

Sorry for the delay in getting some recipes to you guys, things have been a bit hectic at work with a few late nights and very little cooking. However, it is Pancake Day and what better way to enjoy it than with some delicious banana pancakes. Naturally gluten free, clean, paleo and of course no…

Scallops with sweetcorn salsa

Walking round Tescos after the gym aimlessly, I decided I fancied scallops. I’ve never cooked them before and I didn’t have a clue what to put them with so this recipe was one of those where you make it up as you go along. But it was delicious!! Anyway if you fancy a try, here…

Tapas!!

So today at work I couldn’t work out what I wanted to eat. I knew I had chicken and chorizo in the fridge and I knew I wanted to try something new. Then I thought TAPAS! What’s better than a few little dishes to satisfy all your cravings, especially when you can’t decide what you…
