Guacamole

For years I would ask for no guacamole on my nachos if I was eating out and assumed I didn't like it, until I made it myself. It is nothing like that green gloop in a squeezy bottle from the supermarket. I don't even like plain avocados, but I LOVE this guac. You could probably … Continue reading Guacamole

Fresh Tomato Salsa

I make this salsa for burritos, tacos, nachos, loaded fries, as a jacket potato topping, to go with salad and probably loads of other things I can't remember off the top of my head. It's super easy, all you need is a knife and a chopping board. Ingredients 6 plum tomatoes, chopped and de-seeded 1 … Continue reading Fresh Tomato Salsa

My … Continue reading Aloo Gobi // Recipe

Aside from the tantrums, whining, food throwing, toy hurling, sibling wrestling and incontinence (them not me) I love being able to stay at home and experience my little people growing into full sized humans. Despite the aforementioned unfavourable qualities toddlers temporarily acquire, although exhausting, it is very, very rewarding. However, life can become haphazard and … Continue reading Getting Back on Track

Creamy Spring Pasta // Recipe

Whenever I go to make pasta for us, I always automatically reach for the tomatoes  to make the base sauce. So when I spotted some leeks on offer in the supermarket and had some fresh broccoli left over from Sunday lunch, I thought I'd try something different for lunch last Monday. I used farfalle in … Continue reading Creamy Spring Pasta // Recipe

Callaloo & Pine Nut Falafel Wraps // Recipe

Food trucks are a thing in Cayman. A wonderful thing. One of our favourites is A La Kebab just down the road in Red Bay. They do a delicious pitta wrap with falafels, salad and sauce of your choice for about $8 (Ste had beef and lamb in his for $8.50). So delicious in fact … Continue reading Callaloo & Pine Nut Falafel Wraps // Recipe
