July 17, 2019

It’s July, it’s cold, it’s soup time! Today I’m going to share my mom’s recipe for her Traditional Greek Meatball Soup that she used to make me when I was a kid.

My mom got it from her mom and now I’m so happy to be able to share it with you guys, she actually made it for me the other day and that’s when so I thought I’d shoot it for my site.

Prawn Rangoons

July 4, 2019

If you visited my blog a couple of days ago you would have seen that I’m working together with Kiri Cream Cheese to bring you a couple of delicious recipes! I started by making creamy and decadent Frozen Strawberry Cream and today I’m going to share my recipe for Kiri Prawn Rangoons.

Yes, I know I started with a dessert, but in my world, I think all meals should start with dessert followed by the main! If I ever open a restaurant again that’s how the menu is going to work 🙂

Mushroom chicken with brown basmati rice, red quinoa and roasted chickpeas

May 6, 2019

MAIZENA-CHICKEN4

Ooooh, do I have a nice dish for you to whip up tonight or sometime in the near future. Mushroom chicken with brown basmati rice, red quinoa and roasted chickpeas is fast, full of flavour and will hit your savoury spot right between the eyes.

This is the final recipe that I have put together for my latest Maizena series and it’s one that I’m sure you’re going to revisit because it’s super good for a casual night in as well as when you’re having people over for supper.

You won’t need a lot to time to put this together, which is always a winning recipe for me. And you can make it even quicker if you get yourself one of those pre-made rice packs, which is what I did. They come in a variety of combinations, but I found that the brown basmati rice with red quinoa works really nicely, adding lots of texture and a nice earthy flavour to the dish.
