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
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 . . .
Blueberry & Cashew Greek yogurt bowl
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 . . .
Weekly meal planning: update
It's Sunday evening (8:10pm, to be precise) and for the first time in weeks I feel ready to take on the upcoming week energized and not stressed out feeling that I didn't accomplish everything that I wanted to over the weekend. I think there are two types of "weekend people" -- some people use the weekend to relax, and just recuperate from a tiring work week, and some (crazy) people view the . . .
Easy baked salmon
Ok y’all, so I need to keep it real for a few minutes on what goes on behind the scenes on any given weeknight in my kitchen. When I’m working on blog posts, I try to organize my weeknight dinners around what I’m writing about that week, so I can write, photograph and actually enjoy the recipes that I publish. This takes time, though, by the time I’ve gathered all the ingredients, shot the photos . . .
Spinach lasagna rolls
Hey ya'll! I’ve really been looking forward to making lasagna because it’s one of my all-time favorites, and it was also one of the first recipes I really learned to do well. Besides, it’s just one of those feel-good comfort foods that you can make anytime, so you never need to justify this dish -- just do it! Before I got married, my lasagna recipe was pretty much tomato sauce, a bit of . . .
Kale & red berry smoothie
It's Monday, and if you're anything like me, then you need a little boost of energy after the weekend. Enter: the kale & red berry smoothie! ☀️ You might remember that I’ve recently changed my mind about kale and I’ve got a bunch of the stuff just begging to be used in some delicious recipe, sitting right in my fridge. I’ve been on a health kick lately. Okay, confession: I’m always on a . . .
Black bean kale quesadillas
Happy Friday, y'all! This recipe was meant to be “Black bean quesadillas” but then I thought… what if I had something other than beans & cheese for dinner, you know, to healthify this recipe a little bit? Then I looked over to the two uneaten bags of kale sitting in my fridge and I realized that I should stop avoiding them and see if I could sneak them into this recipe. The only reason I . . .
Oven-roasted asparagus with garlic
Hello, my name is Veronica, and I’m addicted to asparagus. Seriously, we eat the stuff several times a week and just can’t get enough of it! It used to be my “weekly splurge” when we lived in Paris because it was oh so expensive there, but I buy it like it’s going out of style now that we live in London and I can get enough for two at around £2! Google tells me that it’s often thought of as a . . .
Eggplant parmesan rolls
Spring is finally (kind of, sometimes) here, and all I can think of making are veggie-filled recipes that are light and fresh. This is one of those recipes that I really hesitate before making, because Jonathan doesn’t eat 95% of the ingredients (ie, eggplant and tomatoes). Being the lovely and supportive husband that he is, however, he always at least tastes my tomato-mushroom-eggplant-random . . .
