Piri Piri Chicken

Everyone loves piri piri chicken. It’s spicy, juicy, flavoursome and absolutely delicious! Re-create this dish at home and I promise you it will taste so much brighter and have more zap than the stuff you find on the high street. It’s also pretty darn healthy and cheap to make! It just needs some time to…

Chicken and Prawn Pad Thai

Pad Thai is super delicous! And much easier to create at home that you think. You just need to make sure you have the right store cupboard ingredients in your pantry and you can make this whenever you like! The essential ingredients are fish sauce, tamarind paste, peanuts, rice noodles (or rice sticks) and lime….

Homemade Pizzas

My partner’s favourite food is pizza and it’s also fast becoming mine! It’s something we cook ALL the time (and I’m not going to lie, it used to be our takeaway of choice back in the day!) We have a pizza oven which helps, but of which can only really be used in the summer…

Gyozas

Dumplings are literally my favourite things to eat at the moment. Bite sized morsels of amazingly juicy and savoury deliciousness are just the best things ever. I cook them a lot. They’re great for Saturday nights in on the sofa to enjoy with a good film. I will post a few different types, but gyozas…

Ginger and Chilli Beef Noodles

I love getting leftovers to cook with. Surprising, as I used to hate it! But now, it seems to be a skill of mine, to be able to make leftover chicken or lamb from a Sunday roast to last more than one meal. It’s a great way to cook and to budget. Having a roast…

Lighter sticky honey chilli chicken and vegetable stir-fry

This dish is better than your local Chinese takeaway and is WAY lighter in calories. So the picture doesn’t look amazing – sorry! But when your hankering for something that tastes really good, has all your veggies and nutrients and is packed with flavour and don’t want to have the added calories or the cost as…
