Seafood Paella

Hey all! So, when I was challenged by Don Carlos to come up with a traditional Spanish recipe using their gorgeous oil, of course I went for the traditional, delicious Seafood Paella. Olive oil is used widely in spain and is the foundation of many traditional sauces. As well as that, seafood and fresh herbs…

Mackerel Pâté Stuffed Sweet Potato

Did you know that eating a sweet potato gives you the majority of your daily vitamin A intake? It’s the vitamin we also know as retinol which helps keep skin and the lining of some parts of the body, healthy, and also helps the body’s immune system work properly; not to mention helps keep our vision healthy…

Aubergine Parmigiana

Did you know that Aubergines are high in nutrients such as Folate, Potassium, Vitamins C & K, as well as being high in antioxidants, and fibre, which may contribute to maintaining good blood-sugar control? (source) It’s also a very versatile vegetable (I’ve already added an Aubergine Lasagna recipe to my blog) which can be used…

Georgian Khachapuri and Walnut Salad

After trying Georgian cuisine when I visited recently, I swore to myself that I would try to recreate the experience from home if I could because I enjoyed it so much! Khachapuri (the bread filled with cheese that looks like a boat) was the first on my list and I finally got around to making…

My Favourite Fresh Tacos

One of my favourite cuisines is definitely Mexican. I love how, even though the recipes are always delicious, they can be made pretty healthy too. I find that indulging in a meal of tacos leads to a lot less regret than indulging in a tray of nachos, as there’s a much less quantity of carbs…

Turkey and Veg Casserole

I don’t think there’s much more appealing, when it comes to cooking, than easy, tasty and healthy dishes. My original blog – Endorphin Stew – was influenced hugely by the fact that I love making stews and casseroles. When it comes to meal prep – extending beyond the standard chicken, veg and rice makes the…

Cod and Prawn Tomato Cashew Pasta

Those of you who follow my blog probably know by now that I am a huge fan of cooking with cashews. This is my latest recipe to feature them and, as always, I like to keep it easy, quick and delicious. This can easily be made into a meat dish by substituting the fish for…

Cheesy Pasta Bake

For me, this recipe screams comfort meal and is a perfect, easy dish to throw together at the end of a long week, and still includes some healthier fats than a traditional pasta bake. Simple dishes like this are so appealing to me to make, and a safe option if cooking for a number of…

Keto Burrito Bowl

The trick to surviving any new diet, is to modify the recipes you love best to fit them, so that there’s a sense of similarity there to help keep you satisfied. Luckily the past few weeks of keto for me haven’t been too difficult at all, because I was already a big fan of the…

Hey all, I hope all has been well with you and that you’re getting through the lockdown alright; I’m sure you have some great routines set up for yourselves. Speaking of lockdown routines, I have recently began something different with my diet – the keto diet! I had heard about this diet many times in…
