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…

Melting-Middle Mozzarella Caprese Burgers

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…

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…

The Ultimate Guide To Roasted Vegetables

One of the easiest side dishes to make and one of the most delicious things to eat.  I eat these at least 2-3 times a week so I thought I’d share my foolproof method for cooking them.  I love that once all the prep work is done, you can just put them into the oven…

Prosciutto Wrapped Jumbo Shrimp

I found some amazing Jumbo Shrimp in wholefoods and they really inspired me to create a recipe around them. We were having guests tonight and I had already planned the main course, but I hadn’t got an appetiser to serve when they arrived. With my Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus fresh in my mind from a few days…

Watermelon, Feta & Mint Salad

Tonight, out in Portugal we were having family over for a BBQ and, being the food blogger in the family, I was in charge of creating the menu.  After having seen my Roasted Peach, Feta & Pistachio Salad and my Grilled Halloumi, Green Bean & Pine Nut Salad the family had requested a salad and…

Mango Salsa

I fancied a change today from my Tomato Salsa so I came up with this mango version of a classic!  Sweeter and more summery than traditional salsa but still packing a punch from the chilli, this is a great alternative and it’s perfect with vegetable crisps, crudités, seafood, you can use it as a topping…

Garlic Butter Shrimp

This garlic shrimp recipe takes minutes to cook and it’s such a fun way to eat – communal style from a big pan! You start by melting the butter over a low heat in a large pan until it has fully melted.

Berry & Mint Fruit Salad with a Honey Lime Dressing

Ok, so this is hardly a recipe (throw some fruit in a bowl, scatter over some mint, sprinkle over a secret dressing and it’s done) but it looked so spectacular and went down so well when I served it at a recent BBQ that I just had to include it! I started with a base…
