Slow Roasted Lamb Shoulder

I love a roast dinner – there’s something about it that feels so homely, and with friends of ours coming over for dinner (who have recently emigrated to Hong Kong) I decided to do a traditional British supper to welcome them back to the country.  This time of year is all about Spring Lamb and…

Full English Breakfast Muffins

If you’re anything like me there’s never enough time in the morning to cook a delicious breakfast.  Mornings are always a rush and there’s only ever time to grab something quick to eat, but breakfast is so important so I’m trying to be more organised at the weekends and cook things that I can eat…

Gambas Al Ajillo (à la Dan) – Garlic & Chilli Prawns/Shrimp)

Last night’s dinner was a follow-on from Madrid.  When telling Dan all about my trip, I realised that I hadn’t eaten Gambas Al Ajillo (Garlic & Chilli Prawns/Shrimp) once on the whole trip, so to rectify it we decided to make it at home, and Dan offered to cook it .  Other than his burgers…

Almond Flour Crackers (3 Ways!)

One of the things I miss most about the medical diet that I’m on is the crunch of a crisp (potato chip).  Sometimes a carrot stick really wont cut it and when everyone has the crisps and dip out it can be tough not to join in!  No longer, bring on the Guacamole!  These Almond Flour…

Shakshuka – Moroccan Baked Eggs

On a cold winter’s morning there’s nothing like a warming bowl of spicy baked eggs to brighten the day and this Shakshuka is a Moroccan Baked Eggs Recipe.  Originating in North Africa it is now also popular all over the Middle East.  There are many different versions so you can make it as mild or…

Lemon Cauliflower Rice with Coriander (Cilantro)

Looking for a light and refreshing side dish to pair with my Asian Style, Sweet Chilli Salmon, I was immediately drawn to something citrussy and decided to create a Lemon Cauliflower Rice to cut through the sweetness of the salmon.  I love the flavour of Lemon & Coriander (Cilantro) so I decided to add that…

Cheesy Courgette Frittata Muffins (Zucchini)

If you’re anything like me, you’re always in a rush in the mornings.  Anything that makes getting out the door a little bit easier is definitely something I need.  These Cheesy Courgette Frittata Muffins (Zucchini) can be made in advance and kept in the fridge so on a weekday morning you can grab one as…

Sweet Chilli Salmon with Sesame Seeds

I don’t tend cook a lot of Asian Recipes – I prefer Mediterranean foods, and the balance of flavours and spices in Asian cooking tends to be a little out of my comfort zone – (I’m working on it).  My Asian Sticky Chicken Thighs were a big hit in our house!  However, I do love…

Hemsley And Hemsley Cafe, Selfridges, London

I can always count on my mum to want to visit a healthy restaurant with me.  We like the same kind of food and eat the same kind of diet (grain, gluten and refined sugar-free – amongst other things) so when I spent a day with her recently I suggested that we went to the…

Cinnamon Raisin Bread

This Cinnamon Raisin Bread recipe reminds me of Sunday afternoons in front of the fire when you’ve had a big roast lunch and you just want something small for your tea.  I got the inspiration for this recipe from my Grain-Free Bread.  It’s one of my favourite recipes and I’d been thinking about doing a sweet…

Chicken & Chorizo Stew with Rioja, Spanish Style

Firstly I’d just like to wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR!  I hope 2017 brings you all health, happiness and prosperity and that you and your loved ones have had fun celebrating the festive season.  We spent our New Years in Madrid (more about that in another blog post), but with memories of Spain fresh in…

Pride and Providores, Marylebone High St

Today started with a BODYBALANCE class followed by a BODYPUMP class – I was clearly feeling energetic and am now most definitely paying for it!  When we got back from BODYPUMP I made us both a brunch – smashed avocado, bacon and poached eggs on bagels for him, and yoghurt fruit and paleo granola for…
