Chilli Lime Salmon Tacos with Roasted Mango Habanero Salsa

T-11 days to Cinco de Mayo! Unbeknownst to a seemingly large population of Americans that celebrate the holiday, the 5th of May commemorates victory of a small Mexican town in a battle against the French in which they were both outnumbered and inferiorly armed.

Red & Green Thai Curry Pastes

I always find myself mindless reaching for the chilli powder whenever I’m cooking- never salt, never pepper, always chilli. I made my first…

Bangin’ Cheesy Chicken Nachos 

Happy New Year! Whilst I’m sure most of you are breaking out your gym shoes and stocking up on healthy foods to start the New Year Detox, I’m piling on the chicken and cheese because #newyearnewme is a lie and we know it. January 1st approaches and we all feel the need to make instant…

BBQ Hawaiian Pizza with Cheesy Bites

 Aloha friends! Fun fact: Hawaiian pizza does not actually come from Hawaii. It’s from Canada. Reason Number 2837 why everybody loves Canada.
