Kiddie Friendly Sweetcorn Fingers…

Or quenelles…. stars…. any shape really that means your kids will be interested in trying them… because that is often the hardest part! These were really easy to make, maybe because I had company in the kitchen helping me out, and tasted great. We ate ours on a day out with lots of bits and…

Veggie Pad Thai (Nut free, Vegan and Gluten Free)

Now I know this is not the traditional Pad Thai recipe, but what I liked most about making this recipe was that it was easy to make, it tasted great and I just loved how beautiful all the colours were in my bowl. I don’t normally make Thai foods as they generally include peanuts which…

Courgette and Spinach salad

We had our first BBQ for the season and with family visiting I enjoyed making lots of different veggie dishes for the meal. Besides this salad which tasted amazing, we also had some roasted sweetcorn, hassleback new potatoes, roasted cauliflower, a huge salad and then some veggie sausages, burgers and some store bought cauliflower steak…….

I have made this salad and eaten at the same time, nice and warm, but also had left overs the following day from the fridge… both times it tasted amazing. Its always great to make quinoa salads, not…

Chunky Corn Soup….. Trinidadian speciality!

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…
