HEALTHY HARISSA CHICKEN

HEALTHY HARISSA CHICKEN

Whipping a tasty healthy meal together is not as hard or as daunting as it may seem. There is always countless meal ideas flying around, however many contain some sort of fancy ingredient or piece of equipment. I want something that I can pull out of the fridge and throw together in 30 minutes, but still have flavour! Don’t get me wrong I love a good salad every now and then but I enjoy something that is going to fill me up for the evening. In my kitchen there is…

ENZO – MANCHESTER – REVIEW

ENZO – MANCHESTER – REVIEW

Just a stones throw away from Piccadilly, a new restaurant opens its doors with Italy at its heart. Enzo. An establishment holding to core Italian family values. With a warm and friendly environment serving up authentic and unique traditional Italian dishes. This is not the first taste of success from owners James Skade and Carrie Slater, as their first opening in Nantwich clearly pleased rumbling bellies with their Award winning pizza. Now branching out and delighting Manchester with delicious offerings such as handmade pizzas, freshly made pastas and hom ebaked…

HEALTHY CHOCOLATE EASTER TREATS

HEALTHY CHOCOLATE EASTER TREATS

I absolutely adore Easter and I wanted to make some healthy chocolate Easter treats. Just love it. It is a sign of Spring, a fresh start and new life. The sun comes out, flowers are in bloom, little lambs are being born and of course it is my Birthday! I have two super fond Easter memories.. My nana’s sister and her husband came to our house when I was around 8, with HUGE baskets full of eggs. We were never ones to really indulge as children. Chocolate and sweet things…

CAPSICANA COOK SAUCES – REVIEW

CAPSICANA COOK SAUCES – REVIEW

I am one who loves added a burst of flavour to my food. I guess my influences have come from the food I was brought up with and the places I have travelled to. From classical French, to prickly North African, and although I have no yet been the Far East. The best ways to make these dishes stand out, in my eyes, is to cook everything from scratch! However there are some nights, getting in when I am just not feeling it. This is where cook sauces come in….

OLIVE AND PESTO ENCRUSTED FISH

OLIVE AND PESTO ENCRUSTED FISH

By now we all know that I am a fishy fan. Yet I still find it difficult to incorporate into my diet at home. The problem is I always find great deals on fish and would love to feel more confident to cook at home. Anyways I had a couple of cod fillets lying around so wanted to take the plunge. I wanted to make something unusual and not the boring old fish dish with two veggies or pasta. I was sent over a load of products from the lovely…

TRIPLE CHOCOLATE COCONUT PANCAKES

TRIPLE CHOCOLATE COCONUT PANCAKES

Chocolate has to be my biggest weakness, especially when trying to lead a healthier lifestyle. Yes I can make raw brownies with cacao powder, and eat nibbles of dark chocolate. However place anything chocolatey in front me and it gets immediately devoured. My problem is self control, therefore I do not buy these sorts of foods for the house. Out of site out of mind. Yet I am currently at my nanas. What it is about grandparents wanting to fill you full of sugar? Even when your 25 they still…
