Phyllo Meat Pie

Phyllo pastry is one of those things I often buy from the supermarket. They are great for quick and easy meals like the Salmon Phyllo Pie or Chicken Mushroom & Spinach Pie … They are also delicious for sweet treats like Baklava. Everytime I have mince on the menu, I end up making some Spag Bolognese and then decided couple of weekends ago to make a Mince Phyllo pie and it was the best decision ever! It was gobbled up real fast and I should say it was real easy to make. For the parents reading, it went down like…… Read More Phyllo Meat Pie

Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala

I am definitely a lot more dependent on the slow cooker this year than ever before. It honestly is like my BFF! haha … A few weeks ago I shared a Slow Cooker Butter Chicken recipe (Click here to read…).

As you will see below, the ingredients are not all fancy and complicated so if you have a slow cooker but aren’t a confident cook in…… Read More Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala

Jewish Apple Cake

What do you do on rainy days? You bake a cake … For some reason or the other I have either a fruit or veg that needs to be used up ASAP … This time it was apples … I was pretty grateful that I got to use 4 in this recipe which meant I only had 6 more left to consume … With winter in full swing here I have been busy loading up my 4 year old with apples, oranges and kiwi fruit every evening …. She kind of got tired with the apples, so in the cake…… Read More Jewish Apple Cake

Apple Fritters

At the Wellington Food Show last month, we came across a stall called Fruit Direct. We stopped to try their delicious apple juice … it was so good that my little miss 4 year old drank a couple of times and they were kind enough to offer her top ups. We got their details down and bought their Freshly Pressed Apple Juice. Along with the juice came about 20 delicious crisp apples …. I was thinking of recipes I could use these apples in … I have a delicious Apple cake recipe and then I thought of Apple Fritters, I…… Read More Apple Fritters

Slow Cooker Chicken Saag

Gosh I love the Slow Cooker! It’s the bestest in every way … it makes food tastes GREAT as it cooks over a few hours. As someone with a very busy life, slow cookers are a life saver, they are handy over a weekday or the weekend. There are no fancy ingredients in this recipe … you will just have to do a couple of things like pureeing the curry mixture but in the end 4-ish hours later you will have a delicious curry to serve. It’s delish with some rice and/or naan/roti … It’s totally kid friendly as long…… Read More Slow Cooker Chicken Saag
