Baked Nectarines


I love fresh nectarines and at the moment here in the UK, they are everywhere! However, as the weather is getting a bit chillier, I decided to try baking these so I could have a warmer dessert! These are good! 🙂 These are real good! The flesh gets juicier and sweeter. The cinnamon pairs perfectly with the nectarine (it’s not…

Vegetable & Tofu Broth


Autumn is coming! There is a sudden chill in the air. Summer holidays are over, children are back to school and the weather… well, it’s suddenly taken a tumble here by several degrees! The sun is still out, but it’s much cooler in the mornings (or are we just up earlier?)! It’s not quite time yet for heavy soups, but…

Spiced Apple Pots


So simple but so delicious! Have them for breakfast, snack or dessert. You can add as many layers as you like (or that fit in your pot)! The spice I have used is cinnamon as this pairs so well with apple, but you could also used mixed spice, nutmeg or even ginger to suit your own tastes. It is important…

Summer Bean Salad


Is it salad weather where you are? There’s not much cooking going on here as the weather is so lovely it’s a bit too warm to eat anything much! Of course, we still need to eat, so salads are the way to go! I recall Jhuls @thenotsocreativecook previously saying she doesn’t eat salads! Well, this is definitely not a limp…

Oaty Digestive Biscuits


Biscuits! 🙂 Cookies! 🙂 Whatever you call them these are yummy! 😀 These are soft and chewy biscuits which go perfectly with a cup of tea! As they contain oats you feel more satisfied after eating them and therefore just one or two is enough to feed that sweet craving (she says 😛 !) The recipe is very simple and…

Satay Vegetables


Something quick and easy for you this week. It was late. I was hungry! We had vegetables left over from a barbecue and I had just seen a picture of satay chicken, so I thought, let’s try satay vegetables! It worked! These vegetables still have their own taste but are covered in a sticky peanut sauce, then sprinkled with that…

Summer Fun


The sun is shining, it is the school holidays and not much cooking is going on here! We’ve been munching on watermelon slices, watermelon cubes and watermelon pizza! 😛 We’ve made watermelon smoothies and watermelon cocktails! We’re fortunate that we have several Asian Supermarkets nearby and they stock the tastiest, biggest watermelons that would probably be too oval and too…

Peanut Butter Swirl Ice Cream


It. Is. Hot! Like, baking hot! This is the U.K. It doesn’t do hot! At least, it didn’t! The last couple of days have been around 33c (91f) and that for us, when summer usually averages around 20c (68f) is very hot! Hence no cooking, just salads and ice-lollies this week! Oh and I so forgot how delicious this simple…

Lentil Daal


How can something so simple be so tasty! 🙂 This is red split lentils, spiced up to a delicious warming fragrant bowl of daal! We made this as part of a meal to eat with courgette & okra curry, samosas, brown lentil & spinach curry and of course rice, poppadoms and raita. This daal was my favourite! I love daal…
