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)

Pumpkin, Fig and Chickpea Salad

pumpkin recipes

This is a really filling salad. And its also a sweet salad which I loved. Im a fan of figs and they were a really nice combination of flavours with the spices and coriander. BUT once again I got complaints from the husband (no surprises here lol). I even questioned myself about posting this recipe, because he hated it so much.But I ate the left overs the next day and I still liked it the next day. I would love  somebody elses opinion on this one.

He didn’t like the honey in it. Um what honey? lol I think he meant the sweetness of the fig. I swear this man thinks he has an allergy to fruit!Continue Reading

Tzatziki Dip

cucumber dip

Tzatziki is an amazing tangy dip or sauce that goes so well with so many things. Plus its so simple and healthy. Its so quick to make you wouldnt bother buying it. And when you make it yourself you can change it up a little every now and then. I sometimes put corriander instead of mint or use a combo of both. Ive seen recipes which have added honey, and I think I might try that next actually. But you can add different spices also.Continue Reading
