Hey everyone, I hope your week is going well, and you are enjoying the new recipes. Today is Prawn and mango curry! This was delicious, and had so many levels of flavour: Lovely sweetness from the Mango, great meatiness from the prawns, and very flavoursome heat from the chilli and the spices. Very nice Saturday night … More Fruity Prawn and Mango Curry #7recipes7days
Its a double whammy for day 2 of the #7recipes7days – Kung Pao chicken, and szechuan prawns. This is the ultimate Chinese take-away food, at home! Much cheaper, healthier and (in my humble opinion) tastier. The 2 complement each other so well, and served with some prawn crackers, egg fried rice, sweet chilli dipping sauce … More Kung Pao Chicken and Szechuan Prawns #7recipes7days
Hi everyone! Apologies for not posting as frequently as I’d have liked. I’ve just finished my January exams (yay!) and so to celebrate/make up for the lack of posting I thought I’d try something new – 7 recipes in 7 days!

Its a much healthier way of eating pancakes, and is … More Healthy Oat and Banana Pancakes

When you fancy something a little bit fancier, and have a bit more time to do it, this is a great way of having something tasty without having to go out and buy 15 new ingredients! The best thing about this recipe is that it is … More Spanish Breakfast Omelette/Frittata
This has quickly become one of my staple mid-week meals. Its perfect to knock together quickly, and can use up loads of left-over ingredients. So many combinations of flavours and textures turn this into a real treat. The butternut squash and the tomatoes give the dish a really nice sweetness, but its balanced perfectly by the salty … More Rainbow vegetable pasta!
I first had Pad Thai in Durham of all places, at a restaurant called Zen. It was unreal – me and my mum couldn’t stop talking about it for days! Since then, I have seen it pop up on more and more menus, particularly in Wagamamas, where it is also delicious. I’ve also seen a … More Pad Thai!
