Raw and easy Fruit and nut bars!

I’ve been planning on posting up this recipe for a while now, but with one thing or another, travelling to London, and now planning for the Fruit Fest I’m going to tomorrow, it’s been a bit hectic here and it’s gotten forgotten!

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?

Quick Fruity Salsa

I love Mexican food. The freshness, the zing, the spice. You just can’t beat it. Which is why I was a little annoyed when I realised that today was Cinco de Mayo, and I didn’t have a recipe prepared to share with you all! Oops! So here is a very quick, simple recipe for a zingy, fruity salsa!

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!

Sweet Potato Bites

The other day, I simply had no idea what to cook for dinner. Pasta came to mind, or perhaps rice? Served with some kind of sweet potato dish?

Before I knew it, sweet potatoes, kidney beans and sweetcorn had leapt out at me, declaring that what I would be making for dinner, would be Mexican-themed.

The joys of indecisiveness & Gnocchi

Today, I thought I’d take a little break from all of the reviews I’ve been doing lately. There have been a lot, I know! (I can’t help it though, Brighton has so many amazing places that I just want to rave about non-stop! It’s probably a good thing I don’t live there.. I’ve be broke, over-weight from eating so many wonderful things.. but very happy!)

The joys of summer :)
