Homemade chicken curry spread

Homemade chicken curry spread

Anyone who's ever lived or visited Belgium, knows that there is one type of lunch we are mad for: 'Smoskes', which is a Flemish term for a roll or a piece of French baguette topped with various types of salads or spreads. The bun of the 'Smoske' is first spread with mayonnaise and then topped with vegetables (usually lettuce, tomatoes, sliced carrot and cucumbers) and sliced ​​hard-boiled egg. The…

Avocado Hummus

Avocado Hummus

Last week I shared my first recipe of basic homemade falafel, but one of the things I served it with was another new recipe: avocado hummus! I'm an absolute sucker for hummus but I wanted to try something new, and decided to try it with avocado's, another one of my favourite things to eat. It might not be very traditional, but hey I'm all for pushing boundaries! You do need…

Homemade Flavourful Chickpea Falafel

Homemade Flavourful Falafel

I spent most of my life being completely unaware of how delicious falafel is, as I only discovered it around 3 years ago. I've been a huge fan ever since but I actually never attempted to make it myself, until last week and I can say for sure I will be doing this at least once a week. It's an ideal lunch during the weekend, it's so quick and you…

Pork, red onion and tarragon meatballs with courgette pesto, pine nuts, limes and olives

One of my favourite dinners to both make and eat is anything with meatballs.

It was the first time I made meatballs without using panko breadcrumbs, as I can't eat wheat anymore. Instead I've gone for Rice Krispies. Sounds weird but…

Hot Cross Buns with an Apricot glaze

With Easter only days away I knew I had to come up with a great recipe for you all to try this Easter. It'll be the first year I'm spending Easter without my family so it wasn't really on my mind but I made something that would've been perfect for my family's Easter as it's always celebrated as a brunch rather than an Easter dinner. I've made something new the last couple…

Rhubarb jam with strawberries and raspberry vinegar

Rhubarb jam with strawberries and raspberry vinegar

With the coming and going of each month we also have a change in fruits and vegetables fresh from the fields available in stores and markets. One of them is Rhubarb, which usually comes in season mid/end of March. It can be very tricky to grow Rhubarb, as it can't be eaten if it's damaged by severe cold, as it may be high in oxalic acid, which comes down from the leaves…
