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…

Grain Free Sandwich Bread

Grain Free Sandwich Bread that’s also Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free, Paleo and SCD Legal! Ahhhh Bread! My favourite food in the world and the thing I miss most of all.  There is nothing better than a big slab of granary toast with butter, or a crusty baguette dipped in olive oil, or a gooey Focaccia or…

Cinnamon & Raisin, Almond Flour Cookies

I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth but even I can’t resist these cookies.  You’ll never guess that they’re grain and refined sugar-free as they taste absolutely delicious – better than most other cookies in my opinion.  And they’re so easy to make – all in one mixing bowl and about 30mins from start to…

Last night we decided to have a BBQ outside and burgers were on the menu.  Dan normally makes his Super Simple Spicy Burgers but today we decided to up the ante and go for something a bit different.  Melting Middle Mozzarella Caprese Burgers were what we came up with.  Deciding to stuff each burger with…

Prosciutto Wrapped Jumbo Shrimp Salad with Mango Salsa

Today, I found some amazing yellow cherry tomatoes while I was out shopping for something for dinner.  I definitely wanted to make a salad with them so I racked my brains to come up with something tasty and light pair them with.  A few weeks ago I made Prosciutto Wrapped Jumbo Shrimp and I loved…

Dan’s Super Simple, Spicy Burgers (Chilli & Garlic)

Dan will be the first to admit he’s no chef (although he’s keen to learn!)  but I believe that everyone has at least one special dish in them and this is his…beef burgers that he makes from scratch and grills on the BBQ.  Always a hit with everyone and cooked to perfection every time, it’s…

To read more check out my posts on Cadaques and hiking in Cap de Creus National Park. Tonight in Cadaques, Dan & I decided to go out on our own as all the others were eating in, so true to form, we picked the local wine bar Enoteca MF.  We had a short wait for our table…

Roasted Figs with Goats Cheese & Crispy Prosciutto

Autumn is coming and there’s an abundance of figs in the stores.  They looked so amazing and ripe that I knew I wanted to cook with them tonight and make a really special appetiser.   I haven’t always been a big fan of figs – in fact I think it’s only really in the last…

Roasted Vegetable Salad with Shaved Parmesan

Feeding the 5000 at the beach in Frinton this weekend for bank holiday I decided to make a big filling salad but with not much time to prepare anything in the mornings I needed to make something I could prep the night before and assemble quickly at the beach. So the night before, I made…

Mediterranean Chicken & Chorizo Traybake

I love the idea of meals that use one pot (less washing up) so today I decided to make a traybake for dinner.  So easy, everything gets chopped up and layered in one dish and then put in the oven to bake. Loving my mediterranean flavours, I decided on peppers, onions, olives, oregano, all the…
