Spring Lamb Shank Rendang Curry…and clean up!

It’s been an age since my last post. My blog has been neglected throughout winter not dissimilar to my weed-riddled garden.

Sri Lankan Love Cake

Sri Lanka holds a very special place in my heart. I fell in love there, not only with the food, the people and the place but also with my boyfriend of 7 years (yes 7 years, put a ring on it already would ya?!) So I thought it only appropriate that this Valentines Day I […]

Raw Zucchini ‘Noodles’ & Thai Coriander Pesto

I’ve already written about the Raw Food Revolution in a previous blog post and it looks like it’s here to stay! I think that can only be a good thing, especially for those who don’t like to cook. Think about it, raw food involves no cooking so for those who don’t have time to cook or don’t […]

Quinoa Tabouli & Roast Chicken Layered Salad

In my neck of the woods the weather is having some strange fit and is convulsing every five minutes between torrential rain and glittering sunshine.
