Sweet potato croquettes

Sweet potato croquettes

Confession time: I love croquettes, oh my god do I love them! Every time I go to a restaurant and it's an option as a side instead of fries I'll order it, guaranteed. The crunchy outside and the soft mashy inside are just such a joy to eat! Unfortunately for me croquettes are a lot more popular in Belgium/France/The Netherlands than they are here in Ireland and the UK but…

Light & crispy Belgian waffles

Light & crispy Belgian waffles

If you've ever been in Belgium, there will surely be one thing you must have noticed: their love of good food! Being Belgian myself I grew up with the best fries, waffles and chocolates to name a few, but I must admit I had never attempted to make waffles myself, never even had a waffle iron/maker! But I finally got one and I just couldn't wait to make my very…

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.

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

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. Over the years I've come up with so many different types of meatballs as well as sauces, going from plain spaghetti meatballs to a meatball wrap with arrabbiata sauce. 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

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…
