Zesty Thai Basil Pork on a plate, garnished with basil and lime

Zesty Thai Basil Pork

Stir fries are definitely some of my favourite savoury recipes to cook. Can there be anything easier than just frying all ingredients in one pan? I first heard about Thai basil pork from a friend a few weeks ago and it instantly had my attention. I generally love Asian cuisine, but I only ever cooked curry stews. An oriental, Thai stir fry with basil and lime sounded too good not to try it. And so I did.

Healthy Oven Baked Chips – Potato Wedges

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.

Baked chicken and leek pie with puff pastry

Chicken and Leek Pie

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.

Simple Cauliflower Vegan Curry Recipe

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. 🙂

Ramekin breakfast - toast with egg, cheese and ham

Ramekin Breakfast

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.

Spicy sweet potato stew on a plate, with rice

Sweet Potato Stew

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!
