Coriander and Yoghurt Chicken

marinated chicken recipes

A really easy and fresh summer dish. This amount of spice suits me, but if your feeding kids you might want to leave out the chilli. I also used store bought chapati bread. But if your feeling adventurous why not make your own.

Im not sure how hard chapati bread is to make as i’ve never made my own. It is on my to-do list. (along with a thousand other projects lol)

Chicken and Cabbage Stir Fry

cabbage recipes

Now I know this doesn’t look that appetising, especially when its main ingredient is cabbage. BUT its actually really nice. My tip is don’t cook your cabbage for long, leave a little crunch. Unless you like it cooked a little more. I know my mother likes to cook the life out of her cabbage, well I know she used too lol.

I am on a health kick at the moment, and trying to consume 1200 calories per day. I think rabbits consume more than 1200 calories per day, REALLY!

But anyway this is really low in calories.

Creamy Paprika Chicken with Mushrooms

chicken and mushroom recipes

This Is a yummy filling pasta that doesn’t take very long to cook at all. Very minimal cooking steps.

The reason for mentioning this is one of my friends told me that if there is too many steps, its just too scary lol. As someone that loves to cook I never realised this before lol. Will have to start taking note of this from now on. But then again my sister freaks out if there are more than 4 ingredients lol. But thats another story lol.Continue Reading

Mexican Pulled Beef

mexican recipes

Cooking the meat very slowly like this makes it so tender in just falls apart. A great throw in the middle if the table and make your own dish. I like meals like this where everyone puts there own together.

This makes a large amount of meat. So if you have left overs. You could use it the next night for mexican spuds YUM. Bake your whole potatoes, slit them open then top with a dob of butter, your beef and salsa left overs, then a big dollop of sour cream and maybe even a sprinkle of cheese. mmmmm that sounds better than the wrap hay lol.

Couscous and Red Kidney Bean Burgers

vegetarian burger recipes

Im always on the hunt for a nice veggie burger in the hopes of converting my unhealthy husband. He eats them but complains while eating lol. He didnt complain too much about this one, which is great. But as I’ve made this vegan friendly I couldn’t post a picture of his burger. Oh yes it was loaded up with cheese, sour cream and sweet chilli sauce (no salad might I add). So he turned my healthy veggie burger into a not so healthy veggie burger. Continue Reading

Beef and Beer Hotpot

beef casserole

I’ve been doing a lot of casseroles and hotpots over winter but when it comes to taking pictures of them its hard to make them look pretty, especially when I’m not a professional photographer or chef lol. Im just a mum who loves to cook. But I’m learning how to make things look prettier, slowly lol. And having fun doing so. This one was tasty and packed with hidden veggies. I’m not a big user of beer in cooking because I dont even drink it. But it goes well in casseroles. This hotpot was actually nicer the next day, they usually are.

Also this casserole is not too sweet. For those looking for a casserole thats on the less sweet side. Continue Reading

This doesn’t look that appetizing to some I’m sure lol. But it was very nice. I think I may have put a little too much in this pasta, that may be an understatement actually. I put a lot too much through this pasta. And I don’t think it looks horrible, green is one of my favorite colors.Continue Reading
