Tartare 2 ways

Tuesdays have become “Tartare Tuesdays” in our home. Mainly because it’s the only day I don’t get home early enough to make a cooked meal. Normally when I think of tartare – salmon, avocado and soy sauce come to mind. And for the last few months, that’s exactly what we have been having. Simple –…

Keep it green and light!

If you are looking for something light for dinner, try this Zucchini, Potato, Celery and Broccoli Soup! My favourite thing about this soup is that its full of chunky vegetables and its a simple, fuss free recipe with no blending needed. A handful of ingredients that taste amazing and fresh! What you need (serves 2): 1 Tbs…

Go ahead, order that side of potatoes!

Most of us, especially the ones on a low carb diet craze, think of potatoes as being bad, mainly because they have a high carbohydrate content. I must admit I’ve got the biggest weak spot for potato crisps and I’m sure when talking potatoes, you’re thinking of French fries or a baked potato covered in…

Cookbook Journey 2: Spaghetti Vongole

I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe yet. It is probably the quickest pasta recipe I can think of, well aside from adding parmigiano cheese, chilli and lemon zest to ready-made pasta (also delicious by the way!). Basically the vongole sauce, takes the same amount of time to cook as the spaghetti. What you’re looking for…

Cookbook Journey 1: About the book

This past week has been crazy! Without going into too much detail, it involved my car overheating on the highway, a 3hr trip to the hospital, numerous tests with doctors, a birthday, a farewell and my parents anniversary! What a week! Our mid-year trip to Mauritius could not have come at a better time. Looking…
