Blueberry Oat and Chia Scones

The Spring sun has once again taken its time to beam through the dusky Irish clouds, but hey, the season is still alive and the sun’s comeback in the past few days would almost allow you to excuse its long absence to date. As a student, I can always correlate hectic study time with good…

Recipe Videos for RSVP Magazine

Hey guys, you may have noticed from my Facebook and Instagram pages that I’ve been doing a lot of quick fun recipe videos recently for RSVP Magazine. 😀 I’ve really enjoyed the experience so far since it’s bringing the fun element back into my blog, while also being able to walk ye through my recipes…

Christmassy French Toast!

That time of year has rolled around again and what greets the Christmas season better than lights, trees or snow? It has got to be food! 😛 I’ve never had the confidence to cook for my family around such a traditional time of year before, but for the next few weeks I’m going to try my best to…

Sweet Courgette Bread & Homemade Nutella 

Finally, a guiltless place to run to on a Friday night when I feel like binging on a big tub of Nutella after a hard week’s work. Okay, maybe my Homemade Nutella isn’t completely guiltless, but it is made from wholefoods and is a lot less likely to do you harm over the original. 😉 …

Avocado Protein Porridge

Sounds strange? I know… But if you think it tastes strange, I beg to differ. Avocado for me is  a smoothie staple and with the right amount of added sweetness, it also enhances their taste, and especially their texture. Since I like my avocado smoothies and usually include oats in them, I thought I’d leave…

Sweet Potato & Soya Mince Fritters

The variety of fritter recipes circulating in our cookbooks and the online nowadays is so extensive that comparing any random two must be like comparing chalk with cheese sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a bad thing… I’m all for putting twists on traditional recipes, so hopping on this bandwagon was right up my street. For my version,…

Gymtime Doughnuts

It goes without saying that having the words doughnut and protein in the same blog post may seem like a bit of a paradox; I mean, how wise would it be to reach for one or two after a madly intense gym session? Yet, even though the word doughnut conjures up vivid images of greasy…

Teriyaki Courgetti

Fan of the classic Chicken Teriyaki dish? Here it is and without so much of the Saturday-Night-Takeaway or Unhealthy-Convenience-Food guilt. 😉 Note: this one requires a courgetti maker which is available in places such as Argos or Tesco – well worth the small investment if you’re hoping to swap refined spaghetti carbs with wholesome courgette/cucumber spirals. 🙂 INGREDIENTS:…

Smoked Chicken Scones

For me, a whiff of smoked paprika brings with it some old culinary memories. Most notably: the times I tried to cook as an eleven or twelve year old. On certain occasions back then, I remember volunteering myself to cook dinner for everybody in the house – even though it would mostly be a dish…
