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)

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

Mushrooms Stuffed with Char-Grilled Vegetables

stuffed mushrooms

I love mushrooms, I am just happy to fry up some mushrooms with a little butter and milk and have them on their own. But even better when I have enough time to get a little fancy. No complaints form the husband either, he liked them also. AND he didn’t ask where his steak was lol. He was happy to eat just the mushrooms. We had two each for our main meal. Continue Reading

Herb and Garlic Pita Chips

lebanese bread chips

Quick healthy AND tasty alternative to crackers. These take about 15 minutes and while their in the oven you can whip up a pot of fresh tzatziki to dip them in. Yes you will have serious garlic breath between the two, but who cares about that. You will only need 4 ingredients for these chips, pita bread, olive oil, garlic powder, and mixed herbs, they are that simple. But I have included the recipe for  tzatziki also because they just go well together.Continue Reading

Crumbed Avocado Chips

avocado chips

I’m on a search for avocado recipes as our tree has finally started to produce some awesome avocados. Which is great as avocados can be so expensive sometimes. And anything thats homegrown is always better. I really liked these with the crunchy outside and creamy inside. But you can’t eat a lot as they are a bit rich. I’ve managed to turn this healthy fruit into something unhealthy lol…

Now Bens review (my extremely unhealthy husband, thats convinced hes allergic to all fruit and veg Im sure lol). He was disappointed as when he bit into them he was expecting chicken. Its like the food was lying to him in some way OMG.Continue Reading
