Potato chips – also known as fries across the pond – are undoubtedly one of the most famous foods around the world. Served in fast food restaurants and often as a side in posh places. Chips made at home don’t taste that great though, especially if you don’t have a deep frying machine. But that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a delicious potato side at home! This recipe was perfected by my mum and it’s one of my favourite sides. A cross between chips and roasted potato wedges that will enhance many dinner ideas.
Being in lockdown, I had plenty of time to experiment in the kitchen. One of my favourite recent inventions is this chicken and leek pie. It was something I had on my mind for a long time, but also something I’ve never attempted before – nor anything remotely similar. I had a look online and found a few recipes for a pie of this kind, combined them all, added my personal touch… the results definitely exceeded my expectations.
Is there any food better than spicy, aromatic, warming curry for this cold, miserable winter season? I don’t think there is! This is what keeps me alive in winter, I usually end up eating some kind of curry a few times a week. And what I love about it is how simple and quick it is to make – hardly any effort involved! You can easily multiply the ingredients and prepare dinner for a few days in one go – it tastes just as good when heated up the next day. 🙂
Today’s recipe is an excellent idea for a party snack, but it can also be used as part of a lunchbox. Delicious chicken nuggets, but with a twist! Healthy (oven-baked instead of deep-fried), with Corn Flakes as breading. Yummy!
Time for another recipe. During the months when I wasn’t able to post, I still had to eat sometimes, so I now have a ginormous pile of recipes waiting to be published. Today, a recipe for simple savoury muffins – perfect to add to a lunchbox!
Breakfast. Often considered the most important meal in a day. Sadly, many of us who work full time tend to neglect it. Instead of celebrating this first meal and making it full and nutritious, we grab something on our way to work or prepare something quick – at home, or even at work! Such meals don’t have to be tasteless or unhealthy (see my recipe for an office porridge), but they can get boring after a while. Well thank goodness for the weekend! Here’s my recipe for a fun, tasty and nutritious breakfast – an egg toast in a ramekin.
As promised, the Valentine posts are over. Relieved? 🙂 Today, I’m coming with another healthy recipe – a simple recipe for carrot crisps. Personally, I’m quite bored with potato crisps and I’ve been enjoying experimenting with other vegetables. I’ve already posted a recipe for sweet potato crisps and today I’m here to present you my carrot crisps.
The beginning of February came with another wave of fresh snow. And although the majority of it has now melted away, days are getting longer and we see more and more sunlight – it’s still pretty cold and spring is far away, barely seen on the horizon. And that means one thing – spicy, warming food is still needed and desired. Today, I’m bringing you my trusted recipe for spicy sweet potato stew!
We’re now almost 6 weeks into 2019. How are your resolutions going? Are they still a thing? 🙂 In case you’re still determined to eat healthily and struggle with finding ideas for a healthy lunchbox – I’ve got one for you! And if you’re not particularly interested in keeping your diet healthy – not a problem! This simple salad is super tasty, you can give it a try too!
So the America’s leading meteorologist – groundhog Phil – predicted an early spring this year. Phew! I think all of us living in the northern hemisphere and having to deal with snow and frost are relieved to hear that. However, it doesn’t look like spring is about to come within the next few days, sadly. We still have some cold days ahead of us, and what can be better for those occasions than spicy, warming, delicious food? Curry type dishes are my go-to in winter. Today, I’d like to share my recipe for Chicken Tikka Masala!
