Chicken and Celery Stir Fry

Chicken and Celery Stir Fry

Celery – Marmite of the veggie world. I used to hate it, absolutely detest the thought of chewing on the stringy, weird smelling and yuck tasting vegetable. My mum never used to cook it when I was little too, but then I think her cooking […]

Coke Braised Sticky Ribs

Coke Braised Sticky Ribs

Disgusting! I heard you say. Hot coke is not very appetising, I know. But don’t think of it as a glass of coke gone lukewarm in a summer day, think of it as a boiled and reduced to a spiced syrupy sticky gooey sauce with […]

Friday Night Fever – No, Burgers!

Friday night calls for a quick and yummy dinner, more so than any other days! We both had a busy day at work, Ashleigh is hungry as usual (and he really kicks up fuss when he’s hungry), everyone just yearn for some grub and chill […]

Hi peeps! The sun is shining today! And with that bright sunshine I took Ashleigh into town on a bus! Thursday in the Market square = farmers market! I spotted some perfectly formed cherry tomatoes. They look so pretty on a vine, I wonder if […]

Mushroom & Pea Curry

Today I was feeling a bit down. But nothing a good dinner won’t fix! I decided it’s not a day for killing today, so we’re having mushroom and pea curry. Sometimes I think Ashleigh likes curry more than I do, and he can certainly eat […]
