Paleo Beef Curry

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post. Did you miss me? 🙂 The reason for my absence, is because I’m working on a new project at home (more of that in future posts). As a result, I’ve simply not had the time, or energy, to photograph and write about all the grub-tastic…

Pistachio-Crusted Salmon

Another great dish for a dinner party. Choose wild salmon fillets from your fishmonger. You can’t beat the taste, and they’ll be much bigger than those you’ll find in the supermarket. The pistachio crust can be prepared the night before. Just cover the dish with clingfilm and pop it in the fridge overnight. NB. Shelled…

Pork Chops with Balsamic Glaze

Another incredibly easy dish which can be prepared the night before. This works well served with lots of vegetables. I chose marsh samphire as I’d bought a huge bag of it from my local grocery store.

Paleo – Week 2

I’m enjoying the paleo lifestyle so much that I’ve decided that I’ll probably stick with it – forever! I absolutely love the food choices and can’t believe I’ve not missed eating bread, and more importantly, lentils and chickpeas! I’ve still enjoyed the odd glass of wine or three; old habits die hard! But in the…

Prep: 20 minutes. Cooking: 15 minutes Ingredients 4 beef sirloin medallions 2 large beef tomatoes 2 tsp chilli powder 2 tsp onion powder…

Orange-Rosemary Seared Salmon

If my taste buds could talk, they’d be screaming “Yay! It’s summer!” I’m not joking! This dish is perfect for this time of year and it’s so quick and easy. It’s packed full of goodness and flavour too. My family tell me it’s like eating in a restaurant, it’s so grub-tastic! They’re biased I know,…

Dried Fuit & Nut Balls

These yummy little dried fruit and nut balls are packed full of nutrients and fibre. Great for your lunch box or for taking on a picnic. Use whatever dried fruit and nuts you have in your store cupboard, but I recommend using Medjool dates and dried apricots as their gooey texture holds the ingredients together…

Balsamic Chicken

If you think you can’t eat healthily because you haven’t got the time to cook from scratch – then think again! This is incredibly easy and provides you with so much nourishment in return. My family absolutely love this dish, so go on, give it a try! Ideally, the chicken thighs need to marinate for…

Roasted Cod Fishcakes

First of all let me tell you these didn’t start out as fishcakes! There’s no point in pretending. They were supposed to be whole cod fillets, roasted with garlic but here’s what happened . . . . . I bought some fresh cod fillets from my local fishmonger. They came with the skin on, plus…
