Herby Halloumi Heirloom Tomato Bake

That alliteration in the recipe title actually gave me goosebumps. My mum’s been at it again folks, we have ripe tomatoes in our garden! If you don’t follow me on Instagram, firstly hop to it my username is @lifeisohsodandy! Secondly, you wouldn’t know about our chickens. Yes, we have chickens. You may have seen the…

Crispy Curry Vegan Potato Pancakes

Because savoury pancakes beat sweet pancakes any day. As much as I will always be a sweet tooth at heart, coriander beats chocolate in my book. Whilst we’re on the topic, what do you think about chilli infused chocolate? Is it the best of both worlds or an utter hit and miss? This is a…

Simple Couscous Tabbouleh

First new recipe of the new website! Woohoo! A.k.a. what I’ve been eating everyday for lunch since I got back from Europe last week. It’s THAT good.

Tandoori Spiced Halloumi Skewers with Mint Sauce

Halloumi definitely goes on the list of things that I wish I’d known about earlier. It just compliments everything I put it next to. Try these Halloumi And Veggie Wraps on for size. Then come back and make this recipe and try and tell me that halloumi is not magical. I have many things planned…

I just could not create a falafel recipe that a) Didn’t fall apart in my sandwich b) Wasn’t drier than the Sahara desert…

Cheesy Pull Apart Pizza Bread

There is nothing more beautiful on this earth than stretchy melty cheese. Anyone who wants to disagree can fight me in the comments. Typically whenever I need a cheese fix, I go for pizza or a grilled cheese. So this week I strayed and went for this pizza/bread hybrid. And OHMYGOSH it was the most wonderful…

Minty Peas and Broccoli Soup with Cheese Toasties

I know, I know, it’s the middle of summer, yet, here I am with a cozy winter soup recipe. Something doesn’t add up here. Allow me to elaborate: the past 2 weeks have been plagued by heavy rains and violent thunderstorms. It’s cold and windy and I’ve had to resign myself to staying indoors. That is…
