Oven Baked Lamb Kofta

You ever have those weekends where you have oodles of plans, but none of it comes to fruition because of one small, tiny, factor? Yeah, that was my weekend. After walking for too long in the incorrect footwear (i.e. no heels) on Saturday, I hurt my hips quite badly meaning a day or sofa-rest as… Continue reading Oven Baked Lamb Kofta

Chicken Puttanesca (baked chicken with tomatoes, chili and olives)

I had the most wonderful day on Saturday, despite finding a white in my freshly dyed hair. I literally had dyed it two hours before hand! Time to find a new dye, methinks, and maybe try something a little bit redder… Anyway! The sun was out, it was warm (for Scotland, anyway), and just a… Continue reading Chicken Puttanesca (baked chicken with tomatoes, chili and olives)

1-2-3 Karaage! Japanese Popcorn Chicken

Everyone has that one dish they cook to impress people, and this is mine. Moist and succulent on the inside, crazy crunchy on the outside, and intensely flavoured, if I am entertaining (or if Ben and I are having a lazy movie day) this is my go to recipe. I first discovered Karaage (also known… Continue reading 1-2-3 Karaage! Japanese Popcorn Chicken

Quick & Easy Chili con Carne

Should I mention how bad I am at photos again? No? Brilliant, thank you! Although I wrote a blog post for both Friday and Saturday, neither of them ended up online last week. Friday’s post I literally lost because Word crashed and didn’t auto-save, so goodbye post about my recent homewares mini-haul, and Saturday’s was… Continue reading Quick & Easy Chili con Carne

Baked Lemon Barramundi with Sauteed Spinach

This recipe is an oldie but a goodie! It's something that I used to cook back home quite regularly, and now cook here too. However, Barramundi isn't available in the UK, so I make this recipe with Cod instead. One strange food complaint I hear more often than most, is that so many people are… Continue reading Baked Lemon Barramundi with Sauteed Spinach

Slow Braised Chinese Beef Brisket

I am currently reclined on the lounge, sipping merlot and eating brie whilst Ben and his brother play Resident Evil. Permeating the loungeroom, adrift from the kitchen across the hall, are the rich smells of what is essentially a Chinese pot roast. I can’t recall exactly what inspired this recipe the first time I made… Continue reading Slow Braised Chinese Beef Brisket

My Special Red Pepper Chicken Curry

I have spent my entire day in the kitchen (when I wasn’t out getting a manicure), and have managed to cook up not only this curry, but some gluten free naan and some amazing pilau rice for dinner tonight. I’ve been wanting to cook this for Ben for a while now, so I am glad… Continue reading My Special Red Pepper Chicken Curry
