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

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…

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…

Stuffed pork tenderloin with buffalo mozzarella, spinach, pine nuts, sun-dried tomatoes and basil

Stuffed pork tenderloin with buffalo mozzarella, spinach, pine nuts, sun-dried tomatoes and basil

One of my favourite foods to order in a restaurant used to be pork tenderloin with some lovely potato croquettes. It's not a very common thing here in Ireland though and I haven't eaten it in over 2 years so I decided to just make it at home and to try something I had never done before: butterfly and stuff the pork myself. I ended up filming it as well, to…

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…

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…
