This Brie and Bacon Macaroni and Cheese sounds very posh but in reality is easier to master than the classic recipe! If you are anything like my family, you could always use another macaroni and cheese recipe, right? I don’t actually make mac and cheese too often as I feel it’s too indulgent to be […]
What’s For Dinner
Fresh From The Kitchen
Everything you need to know for travelling in Sweden as a family! For the average Brit planning summer holidays, the orientation is almost always towards the southwest. Spain, Greece and other Mediterranean countries are a massive draw for rather obvious reasons. So it raised a few eyebrows when we mentioned to our friends our plans […]
If you are looking for a special occasion/breakfast in bed recipe…These bakery style blackberry muffins are for YOU! I don’t bake nearly as much as I used and mostly because we are quite health-conscious in this house. I never want to have loads of baked goods laying around that are just so dang tempting! But […]
It’s time to pull out your slow cooker and make these delicious pulled lamb birria tacos! This post is sponsored by Crock-Pot. All opinions are mine alone! I’ve had busy three weeks, friends. And by busy, I mean I haven’t had a weekend in three weeks. I know I’d told you those days were over […]
This recipe for coconut chicken and rice is a busy midweek dinner saver! Get it! This recipe for Indonesian coconut chicken and rice almost didn’t make it on the blog. Don’t get me wrong, it absolutely belongs on your dinner table but it’s not exactly the most beautiful food I’ve posted here. I pulled it […]
Dress up your veggies! My roasted parmesan broccoli with sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and chillies is hugely popular with the big and the little alike! Do you ever feel like you’ve got a great meal planned out and when it’s time to serve it, you realize you’d forgotten about vegetables. That five a day is not […]

You will want to have this creamy pesto chicken wrapped in prosciutto recipe in your back pocket for those times when things should be fancy but you don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen! So the summer is actually over. I mean officially and unofficially. And although I can still wear by summer dress […]
If you want amazing, chocolaty, fudgy brownies, you need to melt chocolate into the batter. End of argument! Unless you are from Turkey and have true and legit memories of Turkish Delight, the majority of us firmly associate the treat with Chronicles of Narnia, and the evil boy Edmund who betrays his family at the […]
This harissa beef stuffed eggplant recipe is the one you want to try before the eggplant season is over. Delish! I love eggplant! The love affair started when I was a little girl and my mum would make fried eggplant and tomato stacks flavoured simply with salt, pepper, garlic and mayonnaise. They always signaled the […]
With a little help of a food processor this stunning Rainbow Slaw with Lemon Garlic Tahini Dressing is ready in 10 minutes! A few days I go I did my main weekly food shop and I came home with an armful of stunning vegetables. In fact 70% of my shopping was vegetables. And not just […]
This Italian-style Rosemary Chicken and White Beans is a great everyday dinner that the whole family will love! I am slightly torn if I am completely honest. I miss the summer and our lovely outdoor dining but I am also stupidly happy about the sweater weather and cozy meals at home. Warm and comforting dinners […]
This Russian eggplant caviar is a silky smooth vegetable spread that is delicious warm or cold! As I was looking through the photos I took I knew right away this eggplant caviar is going to be a hard sell for two reasons.
