Wow its been a frosty few days… frosty by my Caribbean standards anyway, but I am sure for many 2oC is not frosty. However we look at it, soup season has been here for a while and I am enjoying it. I’ve really only come to love soups since moving to the UK… very understandable…

Roasted Aubergine lasagne…. gluten free and vegan too

I was having a semi relaxing Saturday afternoon when I heard those dreaded words from my son…. “I’m hungry… whats for dinner?”.  Oh my word, how was it that time already? I hadn’t even thought about dinner…. what did I have in the house to make? I was in mini panic mode… but with utmost…

I would say that Quinoa is new to my life… I tried it for the first time about 2 years ago at a picnic where a friend made a salad and it was just so yummie. So I asked for the recipe and tried it at home… well my first attempt at cooking quinoa failed……

  Last night I got home and after a very frosty day I really felt like some nice hot food to warm me up. I have tried this recipe before and knew it would be perfect… a big task for starting cooking dinner at 7pm on a school night, while trying to get the kids…

Last week I met hubby for lunch and we went to Zizzi’s and I ordered their Vegan Lentil Ragu option with gluten free pasta. It was amazing and I thought to myself I need to try and recreate this, so I set out to find that perfect recipe. Luckily it did not take me long…

I do have a sweet tooth… so I guess it is naughty to have this as a 2nd breakfast?!?!?! Previously I have tried a few other recipes and they just didn’t work, but this one I make all the time and it really hits the spot! Ingredients:- 175g gluten free oats 2tbsp dried cranberrires 1tbsp…

Over the last few months, hubby and I have started our days with a smoothie… it’s an added bonus when the kids join in too. Isabella, our youngest age 2, really loves her smoothies… the greener the better, and she really gets into them with her spoon as we generally make thicker smoothies. My journey…
