My tofu is a jerk.

I can’t believe that it’s been nearly 8 months since I posted a recipe, where on earth has that time gone? A lot has happened since then! And I haven’t stopped cooking either. I’ve still been dreaming up and tinkering with recipes, eating out, and taking lots of foodie photos (Seriously. SO many food photos. Hundreds. Some have gotten to the stage of “Wow! That looks amazing! ..what the hell was that?”). So expect some photo-catch up posts at some point!
Whilst I haven’t stopped cooking, I did lack the drive to potter over here and actually write it all down. I’m feeling a bit more inspired now though, so let’s try to get back into this!

Amazing onion rings – Healthy and delicious! Cooked & Raw options!

I have pretty mixed feelings about onion rings. Whilst I will agree that they are tasty.. traditional onion rings, in all their battered, fried glory.. just seem pretty.. gross.
Heavily processed, lacking in nutritional value, and high in fat..
If you make them yourself they will obviously be better.. but what if you could make them healthy?

Happy Halloween! – Garlic Bones

I absolutely adore Halloween. The funky macabre decorations adorning the house (I think I have just as many, if not more, Halloween decorations as I do Christmas ones!), dreaming up weird and wonderful costume. Whether they be strange, cute, funny or scary, I love the process of coming up with a costumes (even if it is a last-minute rumage through the wardrobe to find something that will do!)

But above all, I love being able to go a little wild in the kitchen.. making foods that at any other time of the year would be deemed repulsive, creepy, and downright vile… At Halloween, anything goes!

Potato Bake + Movie night

Sometimes, you can really take things for granted. The quiet stillness you get when you have the house all to yourself. Being able to wander around in the middle of the night, to nip and grab a drink at any hour (without fear of waking anyone up!). Snuggling up on the sofa with your loved one, watching a film together. Under a duvet perhaps if it’s cold, with delicious food and maybe popcorn. These are things that happen all of the time, yet you never really stop to think about them.
