Click here to skip my blah blah blah and go straight to the recipe video (I won’t be offended, I promise). I have been wanting to get into recipe video production for a while, and now that I have a new DSLR camera (with auto-focus!), there’s no longer any excuses not to do it. Like most folks, I’ve been watching the likes of Tasty go absolutely viral and for good reason – I love watching the . . .
23 Easy & Healthy Breakfast recipes, including drinks & smoothies, savory egg-based meals, and finishing with a list of sweet (but still healthy!) dishes to round out the list. I’m a firm believer that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but when I’m rushing to get to work, I don’t usually have heaps of time to mess around in the kitchen whipping up a healthy and hearty . . .
I've been a fan of Jamie Oliver for about as long as I can remember, both for his cooking style and his ethos on food in general. He's a strong advocate of healthy eating, especially for kids, and always comes up with easy recipes using seasonal ingredients to create well-balanced meals. He's got tons of cookbooks (15+) and his shows are almost always on TV, so there's definitely a huge selection . . .
With the weather a bit dark and gloomy, and cold and rainy if you have London-like January weather, it’s very tempting to reach for a heavy and hearty breakfast. I’ve definitely been chowing down on full English breakfasts over the past few months (maybe a few too many…), but after all of the Christmas parties and holiday eating, I’m finding myself longing more and more for simple, fresh and light . . .
One of the things I told myself when I started this blog was that I would not do tons and tons of pasta recipes. See, my favorite food is and always has been: pasta. I have to force myself to not eat pasta every day of the week (and twice on Sunday), and part of the reason I wanted to start cataloguing my recipes was so that I could use this as a resource for myself, when trying to answer the age . . .
October, November and December are definitely some of my favorite months of the year – they’re just so festive! We kick things off with Halloween, then glide into Thanksgiving, then wobble into Christmas. The year is winding down, people tend to be in a good mood, and there’s lots of good food and drink to go around. I love the autumn/winter holiday season and everything that goes along with it, . . .
Updated February 2019 Click here to jump to the recipe This easy tomato marinara sauce is not only a breeze to whip up on a weeknight, but it's also as healthy as it gets! You might not have noticed, but I’m obsessed with tomato sauce. Well, tomatoes in general, but I lovvvee me some red lycopene-filled tomatoes! I could totally have made this a niche blog called . . .
For the past few weeks I have been loving watching the leaves change into gorgeous reds and yellows. Not to mention, I can finally break out my comfy scarf collection, now that there’s a nice chill to the air. Last week I happened upon the Spitalfield Market in London and kind of went scarf crazy! They have the biggest, comfiest, prettiest scarves to choose from… I couldn’t resist. As the days . . .
This past month has been busier than busy, and my priorities have been less on food and more on…well, just getting things done. Now I’m the first person to not mind spending two hours on an elaborate morning breakfast on the weekend, whipping up pancakes, quiches, hash browns and whatever else my starving Saturday self is in the mood for. But sometimes… folks just don’t have time for that, and . . .
Weekends are pretty busy in our household: we try to go out and explore our new city, travel around Europe, or do little projects around the house. So we don’t always have time to make big elaborate meals, and will either eat leftovers or random food from the fridge when I take a break from whatever project I’m working on (or blogging about…). This weekend was no exception: Jonathan graciously . . .
