Spiced Pumpkin & Lentil Soup with Coriander, Cashew & Coconut Pesto

Roast Chicken, Carrot & Orange Tray Bake

Steak with Creamy Miso Mushrooms

Steak with Creamy Miso Mushrooms

I have been thinking about cooking Steak with Miso for ages.  I did a little attempt a while ago but found the miso to be a bit too over powering and way too salty.  I did some research and found a recipe on Delicious that ticked most of the boxes but I really wanted...

Cob Dip with Charred Corn, Cheddar & Jalapeno’s

I have always wanted to make a Cob Dip but truth be told, they scare me. Once I get my hands on that cheesy goodness and gloriously crusty bread, I fear I won't be able to stop and as it turns out, I was right. I searched the internet high and low for the right recipe...

Mediterranean Grilled Vegetable Salad

Mediterranean Grilled Vegetable Salad

Another winning Curry Paste to add to the basics collection. Fragrant and delicious, my Husband claimed this to be the best dish I ever made and it all came down to a few fresh ingredients whacked in a blender. Too easy 🙂   Makes approximately 1 cup   5 cloves of garlic, peeled 2 long […]

Thai Red Curry Paste
