Roasted herby swedes with a terragon & honey mustard dressing, baby potato salad and prosciutto wrapped pork tenderloin

Roasted herby turnips with a terragon & honey mustard dressing and prosciutto wrapped pork tenderloin

I used to think Autumn and Winter were boring food months but ever since I started focussing more on eating seasonal foods I've discovered so many ingredients that I never used before in my cooking because they are vegetables you rarely hear or see about. One of those forgotten vegetables for me were swedes. Now mind you, in some Irish shops they are called turnips (even though they technically aren't)…

Creamy Broccoli & Leek soup

Broccoli & leek soup with goat cheese

I have definitely been under the weather these last couple of days, but I managed to drag myself out of bed long enough to make a lovely belly-warming soup for myself to get me through the day. I never used to make my own soups at all but I’ve really gotten into it this last year with soups like butternut squash & carrot, spicy tomato soup, cauliflower soup and before…

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

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

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…

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…
