Re sharing an article I wrote for CelebritySlimBlog, which is on their website. If you have any questions please add them into below comments. I found it was much easier than I had initially thought, and I felt really great… Where has the last year gone? On 9th January 2017, I began my journey to be…

This recipe write up will be short and sweet, but still delicious and so easy to have in the fridge for a few evenings to give yourself a nice pudding and remove the temptation for anything naughtier! Traditionally the crumble topping is baked in the oven over its fruit filling, but I have simplified things…

A warm, sweet and refreshing quinoa salad, packed with all wholesome ingredients… where can you go wrong? 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…

I have always loved a curry, and it is generally my go to take away when hubby is not at home. Reason being is that he is allergic to nuts and some curries either use nuts or have a secret ingredient that give him a similar reaction to a nut reaction. Its so hard to…

Its always a great feeling when you cook a meal for someone and they love it, this meal is no exception. I initially made this for hubby and I, then tried again on a larger scale making it for a group of ten people, then again over the holidays for 6 people. Each time this…

I have tried and tested this a few times and always very successful. I made this over the holidays and I remember when I told my father in law that it was vegan and gluten free… the look on his face… disbelief that it would taste good. He however was caught red handed going back…

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…

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…

  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…
