Croque Rarebit or Welsh Monsieur? // Recipe

This is basically an indulgent cheese toastie with bechamel sauce and it's delicious. It's neither a croque monsieur nor a welsh rarebit due to the lack of ham and cheese sauce (not to mention I couldn't find welsh cheddar on island), but something between the two. Perfect lunch for a rainy Saturday afternoon or a… Continue reading Croque Rarebit or Welsh Monsieur? // Recipe

You can thank my husband for this one. I always pester him to give me new ideas of things he'd like for dinner and this is the latest.

Just what the vegetarian ordered. Winging it is how I'd describe how I make chilli most of the time. I don't… Continue reading Five Bean Chilli // Recipe

I haven't been able to recreate it in Cayman because the US imported shop bought mayonnaise tastes completely different to the same brand mayonnaise in the UK. In my opinion it has a strong egg taste to it which doesn't appeal to… Continue reading Garlic & Shallot Potato Salad // Recipe

Spicy Vegetable Korma // Recipe

A mild creamy korma has never appealed to me when ordering or making a curry. When I crave a curry, I want spice and heat and full flavour. I do however, like the creaminess a korma delivers. So I thought, why not have both. I researched korma recipes and different spice combinations and this is… Continue reading Spicy Vegetable Korma // Recipe
