Sautéed Mushrooms is definitely not one of those dishes that require a high amount of cooking skill to achieve. It’s one of those dishes that require minimum effort to achieve maximum flavour. I personally love the simplicity of this (less than 5 ingredients) and the fact that it takes little to no time to cook and is so versatile in […]Read more "Sautéed Mushrooms"
The fact that I can go to the garden and pick some fruits and eat them straight off the plant overwhelms me with a sense of pure and utter joy. Some of these fruits include my Blackberries. These blackberries were planted last year and have grown from 1 year old canes. I have been told […]Read more "Garden Blackberries"
I have never tried making Kale Chips with the Cavalo Nero variety and since I made a generous harvest this time round, I thought I’d give it a go. It also gave me a good excuse to try out my new food dehydrator – which might I add – works SO much better than using […]Read more "Cavalo Nero Kale Chips"
I called these ‘Indian Inspired Spiced Meatballs’ because they really are just that – meatballs flavoured with typical Indian spices. I am not sure if these are ‘purely’ Indian and nor can I guarantee that my spice proportions are authentically accurate – they sure taste great though. These are so easy to make – I […]Read more "Indian Inspired Spiced Meatballs"

Usually it’s because our pantry is […]Read more "Leftover Chocolate Bit Cookies"
Chicken skin has been a big no no in my diet since I can remember. Occasionally, I will have a nibble on a small piece here and there – but that’s probably as much as I’ll have. I also don’t eat KFC that often, but when I do, I peel all the skin off too. I […]Read more "Fried Chicken Skin – A delicious compromise"
Tea in general has been a huge interest of mine ever since I can remember. I especially have a fairly decent collection of Chinese Tea – ranging from Pu’er tea cakes through to high mountain greens. It still amazes me how all teas types generally come from the same plant (camellia sinensis), but due to […]Read more "Cold Brewed Tea"
I can’t remember where I got this recipe from but I have to say that it is without a doubt the easiest and the best that I have ever come across. Most importantly it only takes very little time to prepare and only uses a few ingredients which are readily found in most households. These Patty […]Read more "Quick Mix Patty Cakes"
